I wrote up a brief introduction to Mastodon; hopefully it'll help new folks acclimate. Let me know if I need to change anything!

I added bits on culture and on custom emoji.

I've been updating this since I posted it, it's now quite a bit longer and more detailed, but also, I think, more helpful.


Great write-up!

Since we are the gaming zone, maybe a little bit on the tag spelling/difference? It threw me when I started here.

@Monzz Honest to god I have no idea what the difference is. ;)

@Monzz The best I've been able to figure out is that is meant to be fun and accessible where is seen as "hardcore" and "elitist".


The explanation I read was around this and also relating to being a rejection of the gamergate nonsense and bad modern gaming trends/elitism.

@noelle Thank you so much for doing this, gonna point new folks to it!!
