General request: if you post pictures, please please include alt text describing the image so that everyone, regardless of visual ability, can enjoy your toot.
Please consider asking others to do this. Optionally, reconsider boosting toots if they don't have alt text.
We all have an opportunity to help shape the culture of this place and I'd love, love, love if it were "oh, everyone posts alt text with their images because that's just what you do."
as a friendly reminder, we love CWs! use them generously! they're fun for jokes... and they keep people safe. keeping people safe is awesome.
some things that CWs love to tag: words or images that contain politics, violence, religion, lewd stuff, weapons, food, mental and physical health, weight loss/body size talk, storms, drugs, bigory, and hilarious (or not hilarious) jokes.
there's no quiz later. it's just about doing what you can to minimize harm & be welcoming to everyone. 🏴 @ghost.

special thanks to @email@example.com for all his work on mastible (https://github.com/staticsafe/mastible). It made it SUPER easy to set up my instance and honestly I'm not sure I would have actually done it if I had to do all those steps manually
so, yay, I finally set up my own instance of #mastodon! For now I'm going to keep it just a private instance, but I'm open to opening it up for anyone I know #onhere who might want an account there too.
I'm not leaving ACP though, I love the people here and I'd like to continue to be a mod here (for as long as they'll have me :-) )
My new account is @balrogboogie

TIL that "once," "twice," and "thrice" are the only words of their kind in english. I mean, I knew that I had never heard any similar words for "four times," "five times," etc, but I just assumed they were rare, not non-existent.
