@noelle Hey, this might be a bit of a weird question but do you mind if I start posting from @stolas again?

I feel like it's a bit weird to just appear when the registrations are closed.

Noone seems to notice me here, I might as well.

Is it weird to just log onto an old account from a year or two ago and just start posting?

I have so many old accounts lying around

I miss iwritecodethat.sucks, I've just not found another instance that I've liked as much.

I'm not sure that I'm really enjoying the fediverse that much anymore to be honest. I think maybe I'm just not putting myself out there that much.

Real-life dilemma. I have the opportunity to adopt a beautiful dog who's in a pro-kill animal shelter in Romania. He's perfectly healthy, but at risk of being euthanized soon.

I've always wanted a dog. I could save this dog from a certain death, but since I work fulltime I'm not sure if I can give him the life he deserves. It's not really a problem to take him with me to work now, but it would definitely limit future career options. What to do?

I need to find a more gay instance to be a gay mess on.

All developers should have to play this “game” daily for a week as part of their education.

It’s brilliantly bad, and so extremely familiar that I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry


I'm making a terrible life decision today and I'm reinstalling Dota 2.

Pray for me.

"Pull yourself up by your bootstraps" was originally satire because that is, um, impossible. It's now stated without irony.

"Just a few bad apples," when referring to police, conveniently ignoring the full aphorism ials actually: One bad apple *spoils the bunch.*

Open social media for the UK

A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.

If you use this server, you are required to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other communities you can use.

If you're coming here from Twitter, there are some very useful services to help you find friends and automatically crosspost toots that you might like to set up once you're signed in.


This is a volunteer-run community administered by @floppy, and hosted by Mastohost in the UK. Please support our running costs by joining the Open Collective and becoming a backer. Thanks go to our existing backers - this place exists because of them!
