:mower: dads.cool is open to applications! :mower:

dads.cool is an instance for parents (including foster/adoptive) of any gender or sexuality who consider themselves dadsโ€”moms can be dads too.

We run , which gives you the ability to post local-only (only other members of the instance can see your posts) and "exclusive" lists of users that don't show on your home TL.

with version 1.0.4, local posts work with your favorite mastodon apps, too!

a quick guide to exclusive lists on dads.cool 

dads.cool supports exclusive lists. If you set a list youโ€™ve made to โ€œexclusive,โ€ posts from members of that list will appear only in that listโ€™s timeline and not in your home feed.

This feature is great for following accounts that only post about one subject, for crossposting accounts, or for pixelfed feeds.

Use the web interface to set a list as Exclusive. You can only add accounts you follow to lists.
