Pinned toot

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! 😊

Hi everyone! I"m a pan transwoman, poly and affectionate, serious about serious friendships but dorky as hell! Creative, too.
Anxious, toooooo.... for now, call me Shafty?

: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:

Hey! I Just signed up for this. Wanted to try it out! 😊

Hey everyone!
As you might know, @Tusky is on the Open Collective now.

: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"

Here’s a survey about titles that should only take 3 minutes or so, for literally anyone who speaks English:

It’ll end at noon UK time on Sunday 13th January 2019 at the soonest.

Every survey response, RT and boost is really helpful! Thank you. :)

Although I am not actively tooting or reading toots, I handle reports almost instantly (except when I'm sleeping 😜). So just a reminder, please don't hesitate to report any offensive toots/instances.

I do apologise for not able to proactively monitor all the toots.

Thanks to all of you who actively report offensive toots, very kind and helpful of you! :heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: Sorry for the slight downtime. We are back up. Disk space was fully occupied too quickly. Media older than 14 days will be cleared in the background.

LB new friends and especially new Tumblr transplant friends, I know you're used to the blue hell where everyone posts upsetting 50 million words long politics posts full of upsetting photos untagged constantly, but thank fuck, Mastodon culture is to... try not to do that

"politics" "uspol" "eupol" "ukpol" "upsetting" etc all good CWs
