So who is Taylor exactly? #introductions Show more
I'm Taylor, but a lot of people know me by the shorthand KT (Kitsune Taylor) for awhile. I'm non-binary male, and a tulpa born ~01/2014. I'm based in the Bay Area and am the instance administrator of Plural Cafe. @isatis and I also founded tulpa.io in 2015.
I typically like to game (shooters and puzzles), socialize, and talk psychology topics in my spare time. I'm always looking for new things to get into regardless.
Feel free to say hi! I don't bite :)
Mutant Standard emojis are now added to the instance, as well as the plural symbol
new things done here (sorry I've been inactive! busy at our job):
- the code that pluralcafe runs in production is now at https://github.com/pluralcafe/mastodon
- there should be almost-zero downtime except in the case of mastodon upgrades as a result, and spent late last night adding/modifying maintenance scripts
- we now have a liberapay in case you all want to help with hosting costs: https://liberapay.com/pluralcafe/ this is no way required nor expected! 100% of this goes to the server.
Thread for newcomers: CWs Show more
Content Warnings are perhaps one of the most notable features of Mastodon. With them, you can hide your posts, including images, behind a warning. It works just like spoiler tags on old BBCode forums, if you experienced those!
Nearly all instances will require you to put a content warning on sensitive stuff, like porn, talks about politics, mental health issues, violence... And anything in general that might cause distress to anyone, or make them unsafe.
Some people also use it as a subject field, just like for emails. While this is not required here, it is required that you put a content warning on sensitive stuff like I mentioned just before.
Also, try to be descriptive! What I mean is, if you post porn with specific kinks, you can add them in the content warning!
CWs part 2 Show more
Content Warnings my feel like self-censorship at first, but keep in mind that it's actually not preventing you to talk about everything you want, while letting you and everyone else the choice of the content they want to expose themselves to. This helps a lot of people feel safe here, and is the reason why many people stuck with Mastodon. So, use them, please! I can guarantee, after a year and a half as an user, and nearly a year as an instance administrator, that it does not lower the reach of your posts, quite the contrary!
To add a content warning, simply click on the "CW" icon below the box where you type your posts. When you upload an image or a media, you can also mark them as sensitive by clicking on the eye icon. This is done automatically when you add a CW to your post.
weird... I'm running into this bug on mastodon 2.6.5
