tips for newcomers

follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!

boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.

please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.

hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.

don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!

more tips!

home TL: posts by people you follow, and stuff they boost

local TL: only posts from users on your instance

federated TL: a wild frontier of all the posts from every instance yours communicates with. the dark souls of mastodon

even more tips~

we don't generally subtweet/toot people here.

likewise, we're not fans of dunking, especially screenshot dunking.

saturdays are usually #baturday or #caturday or both! sometimes neither, if we get lazy or forget.

if you're normally nocturnal in your respective timezone, you're #nightcrew

Follow

@extinct every instance should have a baturday

I'm definitely not biased

@bat i agree, it should be a fedi-wide, and enforced, tradition

Squeak.live

A small instance for friends and mutuals to chit chat and converse away from Birdsite.

This instance's core value is to be kind to one another. Hate isn't welcome here.

We are LGBT and furry friendly (if you couldn't guess from the name). NSFW content is fine as long as it does not break any real-life laws.

Nazi-furs, TERFs, or anyone who tries to invalidate someone else can fuck off though. If you do not agree with someone's lifestyle, choices, beliefs or values, that's fine, but fighting them over it and trying to cause harm to them in any way is not.

Please see our guidelines if you are interested in joining this instance.
