Mastodon and Fediverse Welcome to New Members

And some Guides, as there's much to learn, enjoy here. I love the LifeHacker guide mentioned below, it is wonderful - reread it not long ago, highly recommend it.

Mastodon is not all that this new space has to offer -- it's only one of the platforms here.

There are others, and it's quite an interesting place. Read the manuals, find your route, enjoy diff places - like when we travel, our instances here are like the local Cafés I so enjoy visiting abroad.

'Flower Whispers Volume 2' is Controversial. Which stamp is visually a better Design ?

Opinions, everybody has one. Which of those two has a better Design?

So, LEFT one ? or RIGHT one ?
