Hey all, I guess with the influx of newcomers, this is a fine time to shill this #contentWarning wall #tool I made a while ago that nobody uses:

redflag.ga

It goes beyond #CWs by actually throwing up a big red wall with the content warning before people actually go to the link. Simple but effective for sharing links that might be sensitive!

Plus on other sites that show image previews of links, this shows the red warning instead of any potentially harmful images!

I know that Mastodon can be a little confusing at first. But don't worry, it's great and not that complicated to use! I'm sure you'll catch up in no time.
That being said, it doesn't dispense regular users like me to give you some tips. So here we go!

re: writing, I don't write much fiction except for my own private delight, but I do:
▶️ keep a narrative exercise journal
▶️ write for my day job
▶️ write social media posts for a grassroots org I'm part of
▶️ want to get involved in prisoner correspondence

so in practice I'm all about nonfiction!
