@charlag brb joining facebook now so the guy won't be friends with me
@shonalika Pretty sure this is the best Masto /Fedi explainer I've seen, great job!

I keep coming back to this thought:
If a Mastodon was focused on being a social space rather than a brand space you would have to be 'friends' with people (ie 'mutuals') rather than just 'follow' people.
Just having 'followers only' as a privacy option and no 'mutuals only' is totally bunk imo. Not totally against being able to follow people, but it should work like the RSS feed, like you just get the public posts.

Decided there's no point in it still using Wordpress, as I haven't updated it in years, so I've put them all on a single-page website.
I think it should be screen-reader friendly too, as the gag is mostly a text-based one. The strips that are more visual have alt-text that I hope is sufficient :)
@makestuff Oh! Oh well! Thanks for being a good admin :) I'll miss this nice domain :(
heads up if you ever use gimp for redacting screenshots and the like
with the default settings, "clear", or the delete key, only makes a region transparent but doesn't delete the colour info. it can easily be retrieved
ways to fix this are:
1. uncheck "save colour values from transparent pixels" when exporting
2. put a fresh transparent layer underneath everything, its colour info (pure black) will be saved instead
3. just fill the area with a solid colour instead
3.1. or save as jpeg
When Does a Person of Color Get to Be an Expat?
Around the world, the term is often synonymous with White people from affluent countries.
I remember struggling with both this term and "immigrant" when I lived in Slovenia. I ended up embracing "foreigner" above all.
Mostly tooting privately?
