So, you've joined Fosstodon and are wondering, "now, how does this work?"

One thing that sets Fosstodon apart from traditional social media outlets (and some other instances) is the community's willingness to help and offer valuable feedback. This is especially true with new members.

Please don't hesitate to raise a hand (toot) and ask questions. If you prefer some reading material, @kev has written a great article to help you get started:

A big "welcome!" to all of our new members. It's great to see all the new faces and the steady flow of introductory toots!

For those members (new and old) that don't know, hub.fosstodon.org/ is full of information that is relative to our instance. From staff members to our Code of Conduct, you can find more information about Fosstodon! Make sure to check it out and, if you haven't already done so, make your first toot and tell us a bit about yourself.

Other than "sudo", what do you find to be the most common command you've put into a terminal or command prompt?

Well, it was a close race but, the community has spoken....I'll be snagging some RHCP tickets. 😜

Apparently all of Facebook's products are down at the moment?

Anyone in the fediverse have a invite to spare? Being a reader is nice and all, but I'd want to upvote some nice content found in there.

Really liking the ability to make the panel transparent and shifting all other icons to the bottom to have more screen space. This is all thanks to the dash to panel gnome extension on Pop OS.

Took the kiddo out to do some geocaching this afternoon, for the first time. Glad to see that she absolutely loved it. Seems like it'll make for a fun family pastime. 😀

Anyone using Jami? Curious how popular it is throughout the community. If you have used it....any feedback? What devices are you using it on and do you sync it across multiple devices? Are you using it for family, friends, business or all of the above?

Dear tea connoisseurs- what's the ideal weight/volume of tea to water measurement and steep time? Does this vary?

Just started working out, again. Trying to take a less (all in) approach and just do some dumbbell workouts throughout the day, while working from home. Nothing fancy but, it's a start. Maybe, soon, I'll be able to sport some "anchor arms". 😂

@RubbaDuxx Indeed! Ever since I started to use StreetComplete[1], I've been editing the map for the suburb that I live in, quite a lot 🙂

Planning on making the suburb extremely detailed. I might not complete it, but I plan to 😂

The Uhaul employee forgot to move a trailer stand out of the return lane and guess who found it? Well, I guess I don't have to worry about what I'm doing this weekend. 😔

Fediverse instances are mostly run by unpaid volunteers who rely on donations to keep going. It's not just the time they give, but the running costs of the servers that they pay for.

If you use the Fediverse, please consider donating to the instance you signed up on. Donations help keep the Fedi ad-free and privacy-friendly.

On Mastodon, you can find details on how to donate by clicking "About this server" in the bottom left corner of the screen.

Nothing starts a Monday out right like going into the office and realizing the AC isn't working. It's a balmy 88°F (31°C) in here.

Screeching voices of the minority? Really? Wow , I know that was an internal memo, but you have to have known it was going to get released publicly. Not good PR. Very not good PR. Apple likes to pound on its chest and tell us all how privacy conscious they are, but are they really when the next thing they do scan all of the photos on your phone and verbally attack anybody who is concerned about the privacy aspects of such a program?
