📣 It's time to boost your games & stuff!
Please make toots for your itch.io projects: include a direct itch.io link, some image/video, and mention @itchio so we can find your posts to boost!
To add to the above:
A star (liking) does nothing to help increase a post's visibility beyond the original author's followers.
I know it is strange coming from 🐦, but it really is the only way to increase a post's audience.
So #BoostAllTheThings (if you like them) and you will notice others will do the same to your content. Here we're all in it together!
Anyone here into British panel shows? Here is one of my favorite clips https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B94q7gUu75k
I'm an engineer living in Minnesota. I wrote Grokking Algorithms, an illustrated book on algorithms.
I like to paint watercolors too, such as this one.
I'm also an avid reader and tea lover. Open to DMs if you'd like to talk about any of these topics!
Hey new people and those thinking of joining, you do NOT need to sign up on huge servers!
You can follow and interact with people on any server from any server, the servers are connected.
It would really, really help the network right now if you could sign up on medium or small size servers. You will still be able to follow and interact with whoever you want, and the network as a whole will work much better.
A good safe place for beginners to find servers to join is https://joinmastodon.org/servers

Another quick PSA for the newcomers:
There is no Mastodon.
As in, there is no entity out there called Mastodon that needs to "get it together" or "make things easier."
Every server is a unique collection of hardware and software operated by a unique team of (usually) volunteer humans funded by (usually) donations.
Some days will be smoother than others. We new folks have flooded the network. Cut the volunteers some slack. Better yet, offer support.
