Okay, it's moving day. Going to set the redirect flag on this account now. If you'd like to keep following me, you can do so at:

Well I guess we know how that's going so far.

I'm starting to get a lot of random follow requests from folks I don't know. In the beginning, there were so few requests that I didn't mind approving the odd random one here and there, along with a notice not to reshare my locked content. Now that number's... bigger.

From now on, I won't accept follower requests from folks unless I know them, or they introduce themselves in a DM. Nothing personal. A lot of the submissives I play with want to keep their pics confidential. Gotta protect them.

Pixelfed registration reopened, so I signed up for an account. Nothing there yet, but I'm "Arzhur" on Pixelfed, just like I am here.

I'll still be posting stuff here, so don't worry. I'm just checking out the new neighbors in the Fediverse.

I was initially really stoked to see so many folks coming over from Tumblr. It really brought the Mastodon network to life. Now I see multiple admins on different instances shutting down image feeds, chastising people for their avatars, etc.

I get that there are rules, but I'm becoming concerned that the refugees from Tumblr may turn right back around and leave for Pixelfed or another service.

It may be time for a new suite of sex-positive instances that don't federate with the main network.

Well I hope you're all happy with yourselves for posting so much porn that I can't keep up with it all.

Because I am REALLY happy with yourselves for doing that. Thank you. Ten times better than Tumblr, and it's really bringing the Mastodon kink networks to life!

**Server notice**
I kindly suggest you enable two settings in your preferences right now:
- always mark media as sensitive
- always expand toots with content warnings

This way you see all the text filth (though I don't have all media enabled, too many gifs), and don't post filthy pics unhidden by accident.

You're welcome

Oh, Onion. How you complete me.

Pro Mastodon Tip:

Would you like to follow someone's locked feed? See their private content? That's great! But you need to set yourself up for success...

1) Introduce yourself with a direct message if you haven't previously spoken. People with locked feeds like to know who has access to their private stuff.
2) Is your own feed completely invisible to others? If so, and you haven't introduced yourself, a blind "follow" might not win over a new friend.
3) Don't reshare stuff without asking!

Pro Mastodon Tip:

Unlike other services, Mastodon lets you make lists of users to view, which means you can create one list for porn media feeds, and another for blog-style posts with text you'd like to read. It helps cut down on the noise when you're catching up on toots!

Pro Mastodon Tip:

Did you know that if you click on a user's profile, and select the "media" tab, you can see all the pics and videos they've posted in a neat little grid? Makes it way easier to get to the good stuff on porn blogs!

A brief word about that post I just boosted: yes, marking all your dirty pics as explicit seems like a big ol' drag. But remember that you can turn off the "click here" prompts for explicit pictures in your settings. That way, you get all the smut as easy as can be, and those who might be disturbed don't.

Now that I've made my way through the Infinite Dick Parade that was the reports queue this morning:

You MUST use the sensitive-image overlay if you post an NSFW image to the public timelines.

You are not required to do so, but PLEASE tag the image in some other way to let people know what the content of the sensitive image is.

Also, PLEASE use a CW (just "NSFW" is fine) if you're going to use graphic terms to describe the image.

(Hashtags in the CW text don't work. Hashtags UNDER a CW do.)

Also, I just found Whalebird on the App Store for macOS. Going to give that a whirl and see if it helps me stay in touch here when I'm not on Amarok for iOS.

So I guess something happened with Tumblr? Seems to be kind of a quiet, off-the-radar thing....

Seriously, though, I've been idle too long. I'm back on Mastodon, and nuked my Tumblr down to the ground. Love me, love my perversions.

If I'm not good enough for you at my horniest, you're not good enough for me when I'm posting geeky D&D memes.
