Hi, all! I finally got round to setting up my profile. Looking forward to toot (?) with you all!

I'm most online on evenings CEST and weekends.

@cstanhope nice to meet you, Charles!

Is there a "getting started in" document somewhere? Sorry if this is covered somewhere I haven't seen, please feel free to say 'no' and not invest a lot of time on doing searching for me :) I plan to try again later.

I'll write an introductory post next as recommended in the email :)

If you're interested in the the organization:

A key place where discussion around takes place is loomio:

Hope that helps!

@cstanhope thank you very much! was exactly what I was looking for.

Loomio seems neat too; now I just need to take the time to read the backlog of discussion in all these platforms.

I'd like to also determine the next steps to make my online presence more Mastodon-first, if you know what I mean. I'm currently very much on Twitter and that's something I want to change.

@enkiv2 ahoy, Lord Enki! Glad to see you here :)

It would be great if we could just opt into a cross-platform directory or bridge system so friends from platform A can easily discover their accounts in platform B.

[[moa]] could be a good host for this: But you don't cross post currently, I think?

@enkiv2 this all in the spirit of Doctorow's [[adversarial interoperability]], trying to make new platforms viable by copying sufficient subsets of the social graph.

I don't exactly cross-post, but many of my posts are done through a script that posts here & on twitter (& on twtxt) simultaneously.
