I wanted to like something on a private account and then realized I have no private account on mastodon

Profiles and posts on Mastodon and the Fediverse have public versions you can share with people who aren't on the Fediverse.

To see the public version of a profile, click on the profile picture. This will open the public version of the profile in a new tab.

To see the public version of a post, click on the datestamp below the post. This will open the public version of the post in a new tab.

These "public pages" are handy for sharing with friends, because they don't require logging in to see them.

Public pages are also very useful for something else:

If you paste the URL address of a public page into the search box on Mastodon, and then search for it, the post or profile will appear within your server. This is handy if you cannot find a post or person by searching, but you know they exist on another server.

Searching for a URL like this forces your server to "notice" the profile or post.

It also works with URLs from PeerTube, PixelFed etc.

what counts as 'federating with an instance' i wanna fix the 0 star thing

Noble boosted

do instances only show star and boost stats from the same instance on other people's posts?? general question just to anyone who sees this b/c i'm beginning to get self conscious about the fact that in my pov i'm the only person starring things all the time

but yeah sorry ??? if i am ??? i dunno maybe you're on a huge instance and everything is like ⭐231 but to me it's all zeros :ehmm:

Show thread

every post is just ⭐0 ⭐0 ⭐0 ⭐0 and when i make that into a ⭐1 i feel like i am disturbing the peace . I am being disruptive. Why are you being a starrer stop that

Show thread

sorry to anyone who has any sort of notifications from me and is subject to my twitter behavior of starring everything in sight

i don't actually know if other people do this or not because my instance will not show me how many outside instances star other people's posts but i feel very out of place and i am sorry if i'm like the only one who does this here :forcedsmile:

Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff

We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy

The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan

Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden

We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre

But we have chosen coin

and coin does not sing
