Terminology and usage on the fediverse Show more
I'll pin this toot so it's easy to find.
Whether you're a newcomer or someone who's been around the fediverse for years, there always seems to be new, unfamiliar, esoteric, or just otherwise uncertain terminology circulating in posts. Especially in content warnings, folks like to use abbreviations and emojis.
This toot is an open invitation to ask me (or others in the thread if they're willing) what something you've seen on the fediverse means. Reply, direct message, however you prefer. I don't pretend to know what everything around here means, but I'll do my best to share what I do know and do a little research to learn about the things I don't.
This also applies to any questions of etiquette or anything else you're just not sure about. Ask away!
