Once more for the people in the back:
Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.
I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.
a philosophy of life
Learn what you can change; work to change it for the better.
Learn not to let what you can’t change destroy you; work to influence it in small ways that build up over time until you can change it.
Learn patience with the world.
Learn who you love; work to show them you love them.
Learn who loves you; work to show them you appreciate their love.
Learn patience with yourself.
Work to clear a space for yourself where you can spend some time not working.

이렇게 바탕화면 꾸미는 거 보면 재밌음
"Who do you spin the sun-light into silk for?"
"Myself," she replied.
"For whom do you make this dress for?"
"For whom do you pluck stars to put in you hair for? A lucky gentleman?"
"For whom do you trim rainbows to make paint for your trimmed nails and smiling lips? A lucky gentlelady?"
"Then who are you putting in all this effort for?"
"Myself," she reminded, donning a mask and gloves to go to the store.
The unicorn looked as though it was a piece of living night sky, dusky purple and black from nose to tail; horn and hooves obsidian in sheen but so much more resilient.
She lounged beside me, silent except for the wind in her mane.
Every so often she would tap my arm with the side of her horn and I would scroll back up the page I was reading.
"I wish you could read faster," I mumbled.
"You should savor the words more," she retorted.
Seattle current events, request for donation advice
So I now have five dozen pairs of tube socks that I can no longer give to the CHOP because the CHOP no longer exists. Anyone got recommendations for a #Seattle shelter I could plausibly send a friend with a car to deliver these to?
your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves
to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline
Mastodon CW meta
Random friendly reminder that the more important, stressful, world-relevant, divisive, etc. something is, the more important it is for it to be properly CW'd. Not more important to eschew them for.
"Too important to CW" is birdsite talk. Mastodon is literally hecking founded on not forcing people to scroll through walls and walls of content they don't have the spoons for. It's just as important to the platform as its decentralization.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
