I'm sure there are people who haven't figured out federation and just think I'm the/an admin of the whole Mastodon network. Or think Mastodon.lol *is* Mastodon.

The email analogy seems to work well though.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

All Patreon donations go 100% towards server costs, etc. I don't take any of that for myself.

Running a somewhat popular instance, moderating it, doing all the maintenance and upgrades, responding to emails and DMs and mentions... It's a lot. It's manageable, but a lot.

If you want to throw a few bucks my way I just set up a Ko-fi :blobcatcoffee:

Some people have asked about custom emojis. I can definitely add more and I'll consider suggestions! No promises though.

Ah yeah, dunno why I haven’t posted it here yet - as a physician I learned a lot from this book, Riot Medicine. A lot of emergency medicine covered here tracks with what I know, it sticks to evidence-based practices, but also takes into account things specific to protests and riots. It’s a great resource, learn from it if you want to.

I've enabled invites on this instance. Not sure why they were disabled. This should make it easier to invite people from Twitter to follow you :blobcat:

The lesbian flag has been updated to the one made by Emily Gwen as suggested by a couple of people. It might take a little while to show because there's like 3 different caches involved but it's done :blobcat:

I also won't tolerate any hatred towards Russians for the actions of their leader. I have Russian friends too. They're not to blame for this just like I'm not to blame for the invasion of Iraq by the UK government. Russians can be sent to prison for protesting or saying they don't support the war. There's a huge amount of censorship and propaganda for people living there. The Russian people are also victims of Putin's dictatorship.

I thought I should make things clear because I've already seen some mentions of it.

Putin's invasion of Ukraine is horrific. There's no justification for it and I won't tolerate anyone trying to. I've been to Ukraine, it's the first country I ever visited. I have friends there. They're all suffering. It's easy to sit comfy and safe in your home with a cup of tea and criticise based on what you've read on Wikipedia and Twitter.

The elusive striped Georgian canine. An absolute treat to spot one of these in the wild. Blessed.
