Greetings, new users! Welcome to Mastodon and the greater Fediverse!
You may want to consult my Increasingly Less-Brief Guide to Mastodon: https://github.com/joyeusenoelle/GuideToMastodon
It covers topics like:
* How do I get verified on Mastodon?
* Why should I caption my images?
* What the hell is with all the pineapples?
From the Guide: "What does 'CW' mean?"
CW stands for Content Warning. It hides your post behind text (which you get to choose); it's like a Read More link.
You might use CWs for:
Common phobias, like spiders or blood
Punchlines to jokes
Long posts that might otherwise fill up people's timelines
@noelle man, i've seen significantly less pineapples of late
@dsw28 Thank you! and good catch, thanks! I don't have an Android phone so I'm a bit out of touch. :)
@noelle very good guide, well done!
