Hey guys, I set up and see if anyone likes to join and help shaping the forum community. :) I welcome feedback, especially on the forum sub-sections. And I hope you'll like the theme that I customised from a paid theme. Any feedback would be much appreciated! 😊

OMG my 13yrs old cousin announced to my grandma that they might be trans (female to male) and wanna be called by Tom instead of Sophie (not real names 'cause privacy but you get the idea)

My grandma answered " I am learning every day from my little children & I am really proud of you for searching a new path in your life"

4 years ago the sane grandma was homophobic. Everyone can learn, change at every age.

This was the positive post of the day πŸ’–

@gendercensus i can never understand why do one always try to put another down. What about them getting the same treatment, how do they feel..

I woke up to just over 7,000 participants, another milestone! πŸŽ‰

As always, every RT, boost and reblog is really helpful, and sharing the URL by email or WhatsApp or Telegram is even better. :)

:lgbt_io: I have increased the toot character count from 500 to 750 on our instance. I may increase this to something higher in the near future provided if such increment doesn't create any problems.

I'm not sure which Mastodon apps respect this character count setting, so kindly use the web version (or other apps) if your app doesn't follow it.

Thanks to @porsupah for pointing me to this useful guide:

Happy tooting! :heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: Server was taken down for approximately an hour due to routine maintenance and instance version upgrade. Our instance is now on the latest version. Happy tooting again! 🐘 :heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: I'll be performing upgrade to the latest version for our instance within the next 48 hours. In case we all experience downtime then it will be due to this. Thank you πŸ˜‰

Yay! "Toot!" now implements whatever filters you've set up in the web UI. =:D That makes it, AFAIK, the first iOS client to do so. ^_^

Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.

In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.

The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.

In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"
