Mastodon admins:

If you're blocking a server, blocking the main domain automatically blocks all subdomains too. You don't need to block subdomains separately.

@PronounsPage I do have to admit that not much can be made in gendered languages, but I guess it’s better off to modify every line of dialogue (walking over the line of awkwardness depending on the language) over modifying the character in question

A translator's job is to translate a work to a different language as closely as possible – don't distort the original just because it's a bit challenging linguistically or because of your “beliefs”.

Hey there new people!

If you've just joined here, you may be wondering if you need to sign up on multiple servers?

The short answer is no! One account on one server is enough 👍

Longer answer:

The servers on here talk to each other through a process called "Federation".

This might sound complicated and technical, but it's really not. You already use federated networks every day, and so does pretty much everyone in the world, even your grandparents.

When you phone someone, you don't need to be on the same provider or even in the same country, because the world's phone networks are connected together through federation.

When you email someone, you don't need to be on the same email provider, because the world's email providers are federated together.

Servers on Mastodon and the Fediverse are federated together in the same way phones or email are. One account on one server lets you seamlessly interact with people on other servers.
