Still not sure how to leverage the strength of mastodon -- or what they really are...
@tomterl rather that looking for Mastodon’s strengths, I’d consider a change of approach - what do you want to get out of being on Mastodon?
If Mastodon can’t fulfil your requirements, then it might not be for you.
@kev That's the plan - I didn't mean my statement negatively; but I see how it can be read that way now.
@kev to be even more constructive, than showing people the door, why don't link to his article (of you'rs?!) in your reply to the next non-native-english writer beeing overwhelmed by mastodons overflowing wealth of UI and distinctive timelines https://hub.fosstodon.org/blog/five-things-to-do-after-you-join-fosstodon
Thanks for this instance, should be right up my alley - trying to get settled little by little
@tomterl my intention was not to “show you the door” but rather to get you thinking as to why you want to be here.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
