a quick guide to exclusive lists on dads.cool 

dads.cool supports exclusive lists. If you set a list you’ve made to “exclusive,” posts from members of that list will appear only in that list’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.
