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?"
In general, just use your best judgment; think "is there a reason someone might not want to see this?". You have the opportunity to take an extra moment and make the fediverse a nicer place for people to be. Why wouldn't you take that opportunity?
