sometimes you see an attractive person, but their sex is the opposite of what you would look for in a partner, and you're like you know... if i played for the other team, i would totally ask for that person's america online screen name

mastodon is kinda like that for me... sexy, vivacious, a hot topic—but not meant to happen

Not on there. The main question I have is privacy: On Twitter for the entire time I was on there (since 2009, actually), my tweets were always private, meaning limited to followers (and I choose who to accept follow requests from).

Unless I change my mind, I'll wait until it's popular enough. As better of a model as it is compared to the big wig services, of which I post on Twitter a lot more than Facebook, I feel as if my posts may get less attention.

I've got a brand-new-ish one at https://mastodon.gamedev.place/@xaser , though I mainly tend to just post Doom map screenshots so it's probably only worth it if you're into that. :P

Related-ish, I've always wondered what the 'optimal' way of posting a music snippet on twitler/masto would be -- I've seen a few folks (e.g. golgi) do things like post up a tiny video snippet of the tracker window playing a bit of the song -- I guess that's the least-bad approach?

I am a huge supporter of anything FOSS, but personally I'd be surprised if Mastodon ever picks up in any main-stream sense. I just don't see decentralized social media clicking for most people.

I signed up to a few servers that seem like I could possibly use in the future, just to make sure no one else snatches up my handle.

So far I haven't found any actual community there, just some people posting into the void and not getting replies. It gives off the same impersonal corporate vibe as Twitter, but without the crowds that make it worthwhile.

Lemmy seems to be better in this regard. (Or at least, it will be once everyone stops talking about Reddit all the time.)

I ended up relenting after the Twitter viewing limitations were implemented... and then found out that I could do the same thing as before with making my posts only visible to followers. Problem solved. All I had to do was pick a home server and in I went. However, don't expect me to comment much on Twitter about it: it's not worth my time complaining about it because I feel everyone else is already doing that, and instead I'll just take a more quiet approach, especially since I never made it public.

at roz.place
. bluesky was founded by twitter founder jack dorsey & is similar to mastodon in that feature-wise it aims to be something of a twitter clone but to be open source protocol-based and federated.

at the moment it's in the beta stage and invite-only (users receive an invite code every 2 weeks). i've already promised my next few invite codes to some people i know but once i've fulfilled those obligations i'd be happy to give them to BotBrs.

@neonlemurs bluesky is also developing their own free protocol currently known as the AT project (analogous to mastodon's ActivityPub). when that is published, being an open protocol, there will be nothing to stop unsavoury characters making use of it; then you will have to boycott bluesky too.

@neonlemurs
by your logic, you shouldn't be using twitter either. if your breaking point is just letting vile shit be posted, search "elon musk endorsement" right now on ddg and hit the news tab

edit to clarify: i don't think your reasoning is invalid, just REALLY flawed and (like snugglybun suggested) possibly a result of bad experiences. you could say the same thing you said about mastodon for a lot of different platforms, including the most popular ones; it's just that with federation, it's harder to cull the crap when every group's managed by different people. i recommend you find servers on mastodon that do line up with what you believe in or enjoy instead of outright abstaining from the service as a whole

@neonlemurs
the fediverse (what mastodon runs on) is hosted on separate servers and some of them are connected to each other, with the option to de-federate from what they consider to be hostile and/or fucked up instances.
for example the instances i've been on are really queer-friendly and one of them is even led by a team of transfem individuals, they of course block instances associated with transphobia and other bigoted shit.
maybe your bad experiences with mastodon might be because you choose an awful instance idk, but to be fair fediverse has many problems no matter if you are on a safe instance due to human nature but these problems can also happen on bluesky and twitter as well ;_;

anyway if they just finally added video and audio uploads along with DMs to bluesky i might use it more frequently, but for now it just feels like a barebones twitter 2

From my experience, Mastodon kinda stinks, so I don't use it.

I've compared it to Linux in the past, both in the sense that there's a lot of instances (like there's a lot of linux distributions/variants), and in the sense that people expect you to know how to use it and almost belittle you if they see you're frustrated with it rather than earnestly helping you.

The instance I was/am on is riddled with these pro-AI fanatics that I just plain dislike, and someone's reply was "lmfao you're on that instance?? of course there's going to be those folks there, find a better one" as if I was supposed to know that from the get go?

So... I just don't use it anymore. I don't really have the patience to keep browsing through instances and finding one that 1) has a lot of the people I know, and 2) lets me more easily follow other folks without having to copy a link or whatever, which stinks. If it works for others, awesome, you should continue using it, but it didn't work for me unfortunately... alas!

Just started trying out Mastadon as i'm slowly getting more annoyed with Meta Brand socials. Seems like a cool place so far!
