Heads-up! If you’re one of those accounts that has status updates in your display name, like X is going to Y event, I’m hitting the unfollow button faster then the A&B buttons when you get knocked down in mike Tyson’s Punch Out!. Ain’t nobody got time to listen to the same sentence over and over.

just a reminder to please please PLEASE use an image description whenever you can, even if it's literally as short as "a pic of me" or "me" or "cat" it makes the website more accessible to everyone and is a feature that's very easy to use! there's even an automatic caption generator in the image description field (it's in the "edit" secton if you click "detect text from picture")

Self-hosting is not an option for the general public. It's expensive, requires specific skills, and lots of time. Inevitably there will be someone in control of other people's shit.
