FYI for newbies 

Twitter has algorithms to get you engaged. Mastodon does not. So in order to enjoy Mastodon you have to take some time to reach out and find content and follow folks that you enjoy. Don't expect Mastodon to send you random popular posts to keep you engaged, you have to curate your own feed. But this is good! It gives you control.

PSA for new users!

If you've come here to build a community/following around your creations, there are two things that will hugely help your work get seen:

1) Hashtags. People use them here. The most common for art are #MastoArt #CreativeToots #fediart .

2) Image descriptions. It's increasingly common that people won't boost (retweet) media that doesn't have an image description. It's also just generally nice and good practice in terms of accessibility. :bear_hugs:

Twitter is well known for being a wonderful place full of thoughtful and constructive discussion and now musk is gonna ruin that! smh

#feditips if you have a computing device, don't Humanity was never supposed to progress past doing math on paper and using carrier pigeons

discovery: if an allied gup (such as a ghost from the happiest mask) dies, it'll still split into geeps and those'll still continue into gips. happiest mask might be a fun item for me now purely to see how many allies i can get on stages with a lot of gups
