Ok, so here is my proposal:
I know that Masto avoids trending topics. However I like being aware of an active topic. So, I propose an *individual* user has an option that everytime a toot gets a reply or boost, it jumps up to the top of their TL. AGAIN, this is *not* a default, but an individual option like filters.

There could even be sub-options like "jump up toot if it recieves 5, 10, 20 replies/boosts" or "-everytime it gets 5, 10, 20 replies/boosts" to iterate it and keep it from being annoying.

Welcome to all the people from India that are joining Mastodon in these days!!

#india #introductions and #followindia can be helpful hashtags to find other people just arrived here like you.

We understand that you are still unconfident with this platform, therefore here you will find some helpful tips to better understand how #Mastodon works:

- There is no such thing as "A" social network called Mastodon! Instead there are thousands of independent social networks called Mastodon Instances.
- Every Instance has his own server, community, rules, admins and moderation.
- Every Instance can interact with users that are on other Instances, exactly like email works (you can send an email from gmail to yahoo, right?).
- Every Instance can choose to silence or completely block another Instance (i.e. because permits bad behaviour)

don't be joke-mean with strangers. don't be even mildly sexual with strangers. don't reply to a total stranger just to tell them you don't like the hobby or piece of media or whatever they're talking about. don't start DMing a stranger with your unsolicited opinions. you wouldn't do that in the real world right, just go up to a stranger and be weird?

and again, don't be sexual with strangers. you can't just assume what someone's boundaries are

HAZBIN HOTEL (PILOT)- So this was amazing. It moves, it breaths, it writhes, it screams, it hisses. It pops, it zings, it pows, it is full of MOXY! It has a pulse that is humming, and that's because it's doing exactly what it wants to do. CW: drugs, sexual references, images of cartoon hell, cursing, all kinds of naughtiness and nere-do-well-ship
