Thinking about Inbox Zero (for example) as a personal sustainability indicator rather than a productivity goal is much more meaningful for me.

Thinking about sustainability in the very personal sense of habits one can sustain and which sustain you. What does sustainable email look like? Housework? Exercise? A mindfulness practice? Open source projects?

Hi! is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to instead of directly to People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

maybe just a few more

-read peoples bios and pinned toots for information not only about them, but their boundaries for this space, common CW abbreviations, and more
-explore the settings and preference sections for more ways to customize ur experience (filters, notifications, turning off boosts in your timeline, etc)
-there are different timelines (home, local, federated) and your post settings impact your visibility on those timelines

take it slow and ask explore and learn

if ur new here:

-follow and unfollow liberally
-add shit (bio, pic, pronouns, stuff) to ur profile or people will not accept ur follow requests
-hashtags are neat, but please use #CamelCase so screen readers can read them
-use emojis and art via symbols minimally or behind a CW for screen readers
-use CW liberally for anything triggering or just bc its a long post
-caption ur images pls
-read your instances rules and report things that break them
-pls dont censor words with * bc filters

This is a small Mastodon instance run by the Ethical Systems Nerd, open to anyone who is actively trying to live and work as ethically as possible. Mastodon is a distributed microblogging framework, so nobody owns the whole thing, and it's federated so the distributed instances can talk to each other.
