@welshpixie Teeny tiny!
This is one of my most enduring memories of an early childhood in East Africa. I loved the wall lizards (no idea what model they were) I made it my life's work to chase them but don't recall ever catching one, yes, children are cruel out of ignorance mostly!

Tooted for the first time this morning and went off to work thinking nothing would come of it.

Really chuffed to come back and find loads of lovely people have said hello and followed, thank you πŸ˜€

@bob_ross That has been my consistent experience of the fediverse over the four or so years I've been here. It never gets old πŸ˜†

@sujatin Hello Sujatin,
Perth is a lovely City to live in, I spent some time there in the 80's but I'm sure it will have changed a lot since then.
Welcome to Mastodon and DotScot in particular. Hope you feel at home here quickly and decide to stay.

@jillymackay Looks like you managed ok! πŸ˜†
Hello πŸ‘‹

@hitthetowpath Aye, but there are plenty new folk knocking about so you won't be lonely! πŸ˜ƒ

@adamgaffney Hi Adam,
We are receiving you loud and clear πŸ˜„
It's been a particularly busy introductions period here on DotScot, struggling to keep up 😁
Happy to have you along and I hope you find your niche in the fediverse.

@Androcles85 Not at all, you'll soon be tooting like a pro!


@Dennzil You do dare but, as I'm sure you are aware, it's a busy time on mastodon right now so lots of hello's going on...can't keep up πŸ˜„

Guide to Masto & Fedi for the newly arrived. 

A good guide to Masto/Fedi for the people newly arrived.

There're many other types of site on Fedi, for instance there're Pixelfed (fedidb.org/software/pixelfed) which is like Instagram.

There's writefreely (writefreely.org/instances) for blogging and Wordpress also federates.

You can follow them all from your mastodon account too, no need for multiple accounts though there is little stopping you creating as many as you like!

@Mazza7 Well done and, welcome to the fediverse.
Hope it all works out for you.
I arrived during the last exodus from Twitter and have been here ever since. I retain accounts on Twitter and Facebook. I keep an eye on Twitter but go nowhere near F.B.
If you have a question and think I might be able to help feel free to ask. I have to warn you though, I probably won't be able to help πŸ˜ƒ

@VanessaK Hi Vanessa,
You turned up at a busy time πŸ˜€
I'm only guessing here but suspect you won't really know if you 'fit' until all this new activity sort of settles!
I hope you fit. I arrived with the influx from Twitter banning independence chatter during the last indiref. Also when dot scot was born I believe 😁

@notapostie Don't think there are any here....yet!
I don't doubt they will turn up though!

@JoanneDaly Like the analogy, would that have been VHS or Betamax πŸ˜‰
Yes, I AM that old!
I'm sure you'll sort out what it is you need to know and the rest can wait until you need to know it πŸ˜†

@JoanneDaly Hi Joanne,
I hope you find here. Like there used to be.
It's certainly very different to there right now πŸ˜€
Thanks for the follow, I don't have the most active or interesting account so prepare to be underwhelmed 😁
