#Introductions / Side A
You may remember me from loud rants and discourses of many a yesteryear, but Iʼm here with you today to help ensure we all get along. Meowth, thatʼs right! Iʼm your new Community Moderator here in Cybrespace!
Important info in my bio. This account will be used primarily for technical discussion and moderation work; see @jellyfish_link for my less formal thoughts.
#Introductions / Side B
More about me: I have a website at https://go.KIBI.family, a journal at https://www.u2764.com, and a long history of publishing my thoughts online. I was the “backup admin” of glitch.social years ago, which meant that when the server exploded, I could confirm to everyone that yes, the server exploded. Then we all waited for the actual admin to wake up :P .
Since then I have been mostly just laying low, something which is extremely easy to do on Mastodon (PROTIP: if you donʼt follow anyone, nobody follows you).
#Introductions / Side C
There are few things which make me feel more tired, deep in my soul, than seeing a white woman espouse self-congratulatory rhetoric about how much she prioritizes “listening” and “personal growth”. My hope is that I will instead be able to demonstrate those things through my actions.
Still, I want to emphasize that my mentions/DMs are always open & available. I may not respond immediately, and I cannot provide therapy or crisis counselling. But if you donʼt know where else to turn, give me a go.
#Introductions / Side D
I majored in Gender Studies, have experience with RDF/ActivityPub, and keep a close eye on Unicode. I unapologetically fangirl over #Zelda and #Pokémon and sometimes write adult #fanfic. I used to conlang, and now channel that energy into making English weird instead.
I have strong and complicated feelings about survivorship, recovery, and community structures, which if youʼre lucky youʼll never have to hear. I'm always Ready to Build if youʼve the stamina to see it through.
