Göktuğ's #FediTips No. 000 (Cover toot)

[I'll pin this thread and add some tips as they pop into my mind. I've had a fedi account since 2017, and been an active user since ~2019. I've seen some stuff in my time :blobcatcoffee:​ I want to share relevant bits of stuff I've learned in that time, without filtering the negative stuff out, which I believe is very important to share so people aren't caught in the cold.]

Have you wondered what the "Local" and "Federated" links do on Mastodon?

Local shows the latest posts from just your home instance (the site you signed up to Mastodon on). The posts are displayed in chronological order.

Federated shows the latest posts from all instances (but only from accounts followed by at least one person on your instance).

Smaller instances tend to have more interesting Local feeds, because they are quieter and much easier to follow.

HomeTown is a fork of Mastodon which lets you make instance-only posts, adjust character limits and read long form rich text blog posts.

It's still part of the Fediverse, and HomeTown users can interact with Mastodon users totally fine.

Tech people can get self-hosting instructions here:

Non-tech people can use a managed hosting service to start their own HomeTown instance:

You can use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) on Mastodon by going to:

Preferences > Account > Two Factor Auth > Click "Set Up" and follow the instructions

It is compatible with TOTP authentication apps such as Aegis Authenticator, Google Authenticator and lots of others.

It's really irritating if you accidentally delete, unfollow or unboost something on Mastodon.

However, you can stop this happening by going to:

Preferences > Appearance > Confirmation Dialogs, tick the boxes for actions that should require confirmation, then click "Save Changes"

Every time you do these things, a confirmation dialogue box will appear asking if you're sure.
