a quick guide to local-only posts on dads.cool
dads.cool supports local-only posts, available in the web interface. These are great for content you think only dads should see.
A post marked as local-only will appear only to dads.cool users.
A followers-only post marked as local-only will appear only to dads.cool users who follow you.
IMPORTANT: If you pin a post, it will show up to anyone who visits your profile, even if that post was set to local-only.

All the features of Mastodon 3.0.1, plus local-only posting (posts only dads can see!), rich text, the ability to follow article-type posts from ActivityPub, and more (check out https://github.com/hometown-fork/hometown/blob/hometown-dev/README.md for details).
There's never been a better time to join this little instance, now on a super-speedy little server of its very own. If you've got kids and identify as a dad, hit me up for an invite!
admin announcement, downtime
I'm going to be migrating dads.cool to the Hometown fork of mastodon (https://github.com/hometown-fork/hometown) sometime this week; I will let everyone know when the downtime will happen. There will probably be a few bugs or issues while I handle the migration from masto.host to my Linode.
admin note, domain blocks
After some discussion with users both on and off my other instances, I've added witches.live to our domain blocklist for dogpiling of marginalized voices and for insufficient moderation of bad actors.
I will post all future domain blocks in this thread, but I am interested in using our Discord to discuss cases of proposed blocks; if you don't already have an invite to the dadscord just let me know.
