I am here so it's time!
Not sure what to put here, but I do and also and on the side. I will use this plattform in English and German, although I also know other languages. I love learning and am excited about tons of different topics. I am very , a , , , and very .
Curious to read interesting content, see & and maybe connect with like-minded people :)

@keks Hi Kris, I'm new here too... I'm not what today would call queer, not jewish, not atheist, not vegan (yes vegetarian).
Depression yes, political yes, but connect if you want?

@keks Hey, welcome here! Maybe you want to put your prounouns (or the lack of them) in your bio?

Hey @heimdall , thanks for the question! Indeed I should work on my bio... but actually I am okay with all pronouns and do not even want to write them out because that might suggest a hierarchy of what I like most and I am just fine with all of the ones I know of. As a currently gender-confused person I value the importance of including pronouns and am always happy when people do it, but struggle with writing our my own once🙈... :new_rainbow_flag:

@keks Ahhh okay that is very understandable. No pressure! I just wanted to ensure that it is a conscious decision as many cis-people forget it like I did.

@heimdall yeah thanks! It is indeed an important thing and I am also wanting to remind and encourage cis people to include their pronouns - so super cool that you do it so people like me for that it is less trivial to include them do not have to do all the work :))

@keks unfortunately on mastodon you can not follow the hashtags on the home page (as if you were following a user) but you can create columns with hashtags that interest you ... otherwise use other social federated, such as friendica or diaspora 😛

some federated social networks allow to follow hashtags and (eventually) rss/atom feeds, as if these were normal users

@rixty_dixet interesting - I am still feeling very new and confused, but already managed to figure out how to have one view of some hashtags that interest me :) but I will work on figuring out what hashtags make sense for me with more time spent here^^

@keks most of the time it makes more sense to follow hashtags than users, so you "filter" what, possibly, you're not interested in 😀
Nice to have you with us! New here? Start with following some tags and people! Go check out public stream on your server to find some. Keep adding more people and tags, you can always unfollow something you don't want later.

Also do share your own stuff - write posts, upload images and add relevant tags so similar-minded people can easily find it. Consider filling out your profile as well, no personal data required. Any questions? Don't hesitate to ask, we are here to help.

Have fun on the network! :)
