The Problem with Museums Confronting the history and ethics of museum acquisitions.

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)

@kannan It might be nice, but honestly, there are not enough conversations going on on Masto that could take the place of what I would lose. I still like Masto, but there's just not enough comics, tv, movie discussion going on. There's plenty news. Plenty social issues. But I need to have fun too.

And there is only so much I can take of "X platform is horrible!! " full of righteous indignation🙃​. As tho Masto will simplistically solve whatever the problem is. Masto has it's issues too. And while Masto may function much like Twitter, there's no guarantee it can take its place. Or at least in all ways. Masto can only be Masto. Which is good in many, many ways. But definitely not the same.

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 

Bowie on the fragmentation of pop music, and the internet. For a 1999 interview, I think Bowie was seeing something in the internet that many of us didnt at the time.
When asked if the internet is just a tool, Bowie disagrees. And calls it an alien lifeform.

Quick reminder: manage your social energy!

Not wanting to talk to someone because you're just not feeling up to it is perfectly okay, it doesn't make you a bad person, and it doesn't mean you like the other person any less.

Communicate, of course, but don't feel obligated to put yourself in social situations, even with people you love. Take care of yourself!
