For those new to the Fediverse, it's worth mentioning that moving between instances is super-easy, especially on Mastodon.

I started on Mastodon.social in 2017, moved to social.coop, and then have been on fosstodon.org for the past couple of years.

The main benefit of finding your niche is that the local timeline becomes a pre-curated stream of interesting toots! 🎉

@Mayana Please add me to Design, Mastodon Moderators, Music.

What's a good exercise to improve my modelling skills in ?

I'm thankful for every tip! :)

Hi @lO_ran and welcome to mograph.social.

As you may be new to Mastodon here's a quick reference guide:
blog.mauromotion.com/mastodon/

Please post an introduction to tell a bit about you and add a profile picture when you can.
We tend to actually consider "users" as people here on the Fediverse, so it helps a lot getting to know you a bit.

Hit me up if you have any questions.

Have fun!

Reposting my #introduction with the hashtag this time! ✨

Like many others, I'm trying this place out given the recent Twitter news!

So, hi! I'm Ryan - better known as Toadsanime on Twitter (RIP my verification badge).

I work in #gaming as marketing director at Super Rare Games, where I also do some biz dev stuff + created the Mixtape, a physical compilation of #indiegames!

I'm previously a games journo, a BAFTA Games judge, and am mostly known on #Twitter for sharing #videogame #news 👋

Hey new to mastodon. Fond of my privacy so won't be revealing personal data.

I'm a blender user and mostly do 3D art as a hobby, low poly and retro wave art is my favorite. I used to be on the byte app so you might find some of my stuff there under the same username.

Did you know that I do animations too? This is a short called Crazy City, you can watch it by visiting my website: joaosalomao.com/animation

This may be a good time to discuss content warnings. The format I use is general-comma-specific, like an entry in a book index. For example:

> uspol, elections

The idea is to help people manage their stress around potentially stressful topics, so name the stressors, but try to keep the actual stress below the fold.

It's a feature that operates on trust, so don't abuse it. And hashtags don't work in CWs, but you can always repeat the CW labels as hasgtags in the body of the post.

Good day for a few friendly reminders:

1. Putting topics behind a content warning helps people manage their own stress.

2. Putting uspol in the CW, or #uspol in the text, helps non-US users filter out posts that aren't relevant to them.

3. Setting post visibility to Unlisted or Followers Only can help keep some Home timelines on-topic.

4. Roughly 200,000 of us have been here less than a week, and they're acclimating to a new set of conventions, so let's try to stay constructive.

Hey folks! I'd like the kind people at Trunk to add a Motion Design list. To do so we need at least three accounts that wants to be on the list. Anyone interested?

Trunk is a directory of Mastodon accounts organised in interests based lists to help newcomers finding people to follow. Check it out.

communitywiki.org/trunk

Mauro boosted

An appeal for help:

Trunk is an opt-in directory of people on Mastodon and the Fediverse looking for followers, organised into a large range of topics:

communitywiki.org/trunk

Anyone can ask to be added, and the admins of Trunk check the account (to screen out spam etc) and add them.

However, due to the need to check the contents of accounts, this Trunk only includes people who post mainly in English. It means they have to turn away a lot of non-English accounts.

The Trunk admins want to fix this situation.

Do you use a language other than English? Do you want to help make a version of Trunk in your own language?

The English Trunk admins can help you with the technical side, but they need people who speak other languages to moderate Trunks in those other languages.

➡️ Can you help? If so, get in touch with @kensanata who leads the Trunk project.

(There is a Spanish Trunk at trunkesp.chilemasto.casa but so far no other languages.)
