btw, for people new to Mastodon, because it bears repeating - CW = content warning. To use it, click "CW" under a post you're making, and enter a label for the post.
common CWs/content warnings are for things like US politics, death, mental health (or mh), which is noted by positive (+) or negative (-), anything that people may not want to necessarily see as they're scrolling by. let people choose what to interact with, because you don't want certain content either.

Your Community Site is Not a Government
its the year 2030: twitter.com is the website of an insurance company in new jersey usa
I rage-quit Twitter at the end of November in 2016. As someone who has worked in online communities for close to 20 years, I couldn’t stand being a member of a community where the people in charge cared so very little for their users. We worked very hard at Flickr to make sure that people were safe. Your company isn’t the government and you can delete any account at any time for any reason. If you create a community, it’s your jobs to ensure that it’s safe for all.

another trick to having a good time on mastodon imo: start tooting about anything other than mastodon
protip(?): if you add ".rss" to the end of your profile url, you get a feed of all your public and unlisted toots that you can then plug into ifttt in order to cross-post to birdsite, with links on every one to remind people that you're actually on a much better website. here's how it looks on mine.
This is a private Mastodon instance just for Darius Kazemi. It wasn't all that hard to set up! I used this guide.
