advanced mastodon etiquette
(not a subtoot; this is a thing I try to re-announce every so often as a weirder.earth mod)
if you're writing a long public thread to a slow local timeline, you can avoid filling it up with your own toots by making that first toot public, & the rest of them "unlisted."
if you indicate in the first toot that there's more (whether by context, or saying something like "long thread" or "1/?"), people who are interested can still click through to read the whole thing!
Let the seasonal flavored drinks begin! #imBasic
I know it feels super righteous to demonize and hate the "bad" people but that's why you should fucking question it.
nothing in this world is righteous, effective solutions to violence and oppression are complicated, transformative and structural. people are never all good or all bad. and there's no such thing as an anarcho-communist crusader knight.
Microfic: Solarpunk Autumn
The morning air has finally started to get a chill. This is still novel as you hold the hot, steaming travel-mug of tea in your hand. As you amble down the road you take the time to take in the changes in the city.
The trees and foliage that cover every structure around you have lost their vivid greens and are slowly becoming a sea of deep reds and vibrant golds. The wind has picked up in the last few days and there is a wondrous chorus of rustling.
As you make your way to the Farming lot at the heart of your neighborhood you check the schedule on your phone. The Automated system is reporting the pumpkins are ready to be harvested. By the looks of the algorithm results for distribution, there will be enough extra for some to be carved up for Halloween.
The local kids will like that. The ceramic ones people now use are less wasteful but there’s nothing like making a real jack-o-lantern when the opportunity presents itself.
You send a post out onto the local mesh network to see if anyone wants to meet up for hot drinks later, before putting your phone away. Time to get to work taking in the last of the summer’s bounty.

"Sorry I missed your comment of many months ago. I no longer build software; I now make furniture out of wood. The hours are long, the pay sucks, and there's always the opportunity to remove my finger with a table saw, but nobody asks me if I can add an RSS feed to a DBMS, so there's that :-)"
