feel like I haven’t done a big promo post in a while so here goes


if you have children* and are interested in moving to/creating an alt on a trans-inclusive, chill, and respectful instance (that’s a fork of mastodon with local-only posting and a few other choice customizations), check out dads.cool or cooler.mom! Three years running, active moderation, pleasant people. Feel free to DM or @ me. Boosts welcome.

lowly worm and mowy enjoy a cup of joe and a game of cribbage together

@alex What is a 'fork'? I've seen that a couple of times but I don't know what it means.
I'd be interested to join too 😊

@lily_o_valley It looks like you already did!

a fork is when someone starts with an existing piece of software and starts their own branching version with their own changes. You can learn more about hometown at github.com/hometown-fork/homet

@alex D'oh I'm so slow. Are you talking about this instance here where I already am) 🤔 😄
