“this man surely has a lot of issues”
You can walk quite a bit on the the border between #Germany and the #CzechRepublic while ascending to #SOTA DM/SX-019 Hochwald (also #POTA DA-0049 and #WWFF DLFF-0135 Nature Park Zittauer Gebirge). On the summit there’s a nice restaurant with a tower but it’s hard to find a quiet spot to activate. #SummitsOnTheAir #ParksOnTheAir #cw #qrp #HamRadio #Saxony #elecraftkx2 #fm #2m #70cm #20m #40m
In jeder #Mastdon App.
An manchen Tagen, wie etwa heute, kann ich Tröts zur aktuellen politischen Lage einfach nicht ab.
Daher bin ich gezwungen heute komplett offline zu sein.
Und zum "Asylkompromiss" 1993 ein ziemlich guter Abriss (#CW inklusive O-Töne rassistischer Aussprüche) des DLF von 2017.
3 Tage nach der Abstimmung im Bundestag war der rassistische Anschlag von Mölln😞
(Mich macht das gerade richtig fertig, wie sehr sich das gleicht😟 )
I've seen several toots suggesting we add #CW to posts about #sports, #politics or #SocialIssues. IMO that's an unfair "demand" unless posts also contain graphic, violent, adult-themed topics etc. None of us will find every toot in our feeds interesting, whether they are intellectual or casual posts. We control our TLs!
While ascending to #sota DM/SX-030 Großer Winterberg I realized there was a marching event (https://www.elbsteiger-marsch.de) going on and the summit was overcrowded with people. So I skipped the activation and concentrated on Nationalpark Sächsische Schweiz (#pota DA-0050 and #wwff DLFF-0012) instead: I found a beautiful spot called Kipphornaussicht and activated from there. Be flexible! #SummitsOnTheAir #ParksOnTheAir #cw #qrp #Saxony #40m #20m #HamRadio #elecraftkx2
Probe into military police #Canada #CW https://www.castanet.net/news/Canada/449605/Probe-into-military-police
Had a good afternoon on Saturday catching up with some of the surviving members of my graffiti crew, CW / Crime Wave...it was so awesome to see some comrades who I haven't seen in literally decades! We met at a legal wall which is a really sweet spot, the photos below are stuff that was already there - and a few new tags added on the day...gonna swing back by there during the week and get some pics of the finished pieces that were started on Saturday. The whole experience watching everybody getting busy really inspired me to start sketching again, and hopefully rock a wall in the near future..I was always more of a hardcore bomber than a piecer, but given my old age and the trains being a lot harder to do, I think I will settle for a wall nowadays!
*will add image descriptions during the week, bit tired right now!*
Today I built a pair of pressure sensitive #morse code paddles based on the schematics and #PCB layout by @vk3il - see his blog article at https://vk3il.net/pressure-paddle-v2/ and start soldering! I still have a couple of PCBs here to give away for free. If you are in #Dresden drop me a message and pick one up (no, I won’t send them by mail). #HamRadio #cw #morsecode
This account tries not to boost media without #AltText
This account tries not to boost content which should be behind a content notice/content warning (#CW).
"CWs are not about avoiding topics, it’s exactly the opposite: CWs make triggering posts accessible to people who would otherwise have to avoid them, in the same way that text descriptions make images accessible to blind people. They widen your post’s audience."
( https://fedi.tips/how-to-use-content-warnings-cws-on-mastodon-and-the-fediverse/ )
Like, everyone outside of Mastodon must issue a #CW if they use
a code block
a bullet-point list
"Das Fazit der Gruppe:
Die Warnungen schützten nicht vor negativen Gefühlen, sondern schürten im Gegenteil vorab leichte Erwartungsängste. Womöglich könnten die Warnungen helfen, schreibt das Team um Bridgland – wenn dazu auch Hinweise zum Umgang mit aufkommenden negativen Gefühlen gegeben würden. Doch das sei selten der Fall. (..)
Teilweise steigerte eine Warnung das Interesse sogar. (..)“
Si ya lo he dicho todo en el #cw…
Für alle, die nicht schlafen können, habe ich ein neues #SvensNerdwortRätsel erstellt.
Welcher Gamingklassiker hat sich in diesem #Anagram versteckt?
(Wie immer keine Tipps von mir, Lösung gibts morgen um 21 Uhr und Antworten bitte mit #CW posten)
Eventuelle Leerzeichen sind zu entfernen oder hinzuzufügen
Ich fände es wirklich wichtig, dass hier mehr User #CW und Bildbeschreibungen erstellen - das hat auch etwas mit Respekt und Teilhabe zu tun. 🤗
Und es tut gar nicht weh!
CW für Menschen, die sensibler auf bestimmte Themen oder Bilder reagieren.
Und #Bildbeschreibungen für die hier tatsächlich zahlreichen Menschen, die nicht oder nicht gut sehen können.
Als ich neu hier war, hielt ich es auch zuerst für übertrieben, aber es ist wichtig und sinnvoll, weil wir alle Teil des Ganzen sind.
I have a question to those who use screen readers.
How do the posts with CW (content warning) filter work for you?
I wanted to post what we saw in the forest with CW, but I wasn’t sure if you guys can skip the post, if you wanted to. (Sometimes, mother nature can be cruel.)
I wanna try drawing rude pictures. 😈 Is it ok to try it out sometime soon and just put a #cw on it or should I just find some other place on the internet for rude sexy drawings? @AusSocialMods please advise…? Or should just start an account that’s JUST for those, so it’s easier for people to not see ‘em? Or something?
#Reminder that you don’t need a reason to mute or block an account. You don’t even have to explain it to anyone or announce it.
You can even mute entire servers.
You can filter words.
You can follow hashtags and make lists.
You can setup notifications for your favorite people, so when they post, you get notified.
Maybe what drives people from the #Fediverse isn’t the #TonePolice, #CW #CultureWarriors, #ReplyGuys, server implosions, or #Trolls; maybe it’s the personal responsibility of the #ChooseYourOwnAdventure aspect?
Maybe, like using #Windows instead of #Linux, a lot of people just don’t want to be given the reins?

Any antenna is better than no antenna! RBN results with home-brew EFHW sloper with end 25 ft in a tree. Thanks, ionosphere. #CW
Extremely niche, just-for-me #Mastodon feature that I want but don't think it'd be worthwhile to implement: more granular spoiler categories.
I'd like to be able to keep plot-related media spoilers and NSFW stuff behind a #CW until I want to view them, but I don't care about mentions of violence or potentially challenging material (and NSFW is really only a problem out in public). I follow enough accounts that use CWs liberally (a good thing!) that it's annoying to unfurl everything manually.
jwz.org is now 25 https://www.jwz.org/blog/2023/08/jwz-org-is-now-25/
Für was hier alles ein #CW gefordert wird, ist schon befremdlich.
Wie macht man das im RL? Scheuklappen?
And good luck trying to weaponize the CW system on Mastodon and claiming you're doing this for (entirely bogus) liberal reasons, to protect tender folks from information that may startle them, when you're fundamentally trying to censor others — and therefore working in tandem with the hard right as it attempts to censor open discussion, ban books, and so on.
To all those folks on Mastodon complaining that American news stories such the air out of the place and any US news story needs to be labeled with a CW:
Good luck seeking to live in a protected bubble in which what happens in the US doesn't affect you outside the US.
Britain tried that approach with Brexit, vis-a-vis Europe. How's that working out?
@scalzi There are some who will try to tell you that #USPolitics should be behind #ContentWarning #CW. This is not at all an established protocol. Feel free to post your thoughts. Your idea of using #hashtags is good for both discovery and filtering.
Bottom line, Mastodon is a great place and we are excited to share it with you. #Welcome!
@ricmac maybe it seems well managed to you, but you're seeing it from the inside, and not from the viewpoint of the rest of the fediverse. I've encountered two major problems with mastodon dot social: spam/bots, and in my experience the majority of its users don't include #AltText and #CW. It's like they were onramped but never properly onboarded (or don't care, which may possibly be worse). I'm not against large instances as a rule, but--at least in the case of mastodon dot social--they do seem to breed problematic users.
Most of you are lovely.
But those of you who police what people say and #CW really need to stop. This was something I didn't even encounter on the hell hole that was #Twitter.
I prefer people to CW political posts, but if they don't, it doesn't make my life hell. I just filter or block of I need to.
We all need to manage our mental health. We shouldn't expect people to do that for us.
Oh look my very first CW police! My answer is - no I shall not 🖕It is not my job to take care of your tender, easily offended self. We #Malaysians love to celebrate food and will not hide #MakanApaToday to cater to your tender dietary sensibilities.
If you are offended by the #Food I eat there is the mute and block button and do kindly unfollow.
People can be so ridiculous 🤣 Those 10 calories used to type that message could have been used for something better.
„Es hat eigentlich nie jemand gefragt: Was is'n da eigentlich bei euch passiert, als dieses Land verschwunden ist?“
Ihr könnt die Zeit förmlich riechen. Lohnt sich für die, die dabei waren (wobei, #CW) und, sehr für alle, die endlich ein bisschen mehr wissen wollen.

Kurz, von #ttt
punko’s #Haikoot Thread.
Positng and collecting my #Haikoots here, in a thread, that I will build upon by responding to this initial post.
I may reach back into my collection and re-post #Haiku I am fond of that were lost to The Void.
I hope you get something from these.
Note: I do not #CW my haiku; addressed are (among other things)- #Suicide, #Death, #Loss, #Grief, #MentalHealth, and the #ClimateCrisis - fair warning.
Stuff I may well CW or flag as sensitive:
Abuse, including hatespeech as specific abuse
Excessively long or boring stuff
Stuff I'm unlikely CW:
Racism & other bigotry
News about disease, the Jackpot, etc.
Discussion about hatespeech
...because setting up the world so we could ignore those things is part of what's gotten us here.
@stux I'm actually looking for a new instance. One where I can make reasonable political and philosophical posts without being harassed to put them behind increasingly meaningless #CW and one the will allow me to post up to 1000 characters. But at the same time, one that still takes moderation seriously so as not to be banned from other instances. Does such an animal exist?
13/ Content Warnings are available to mask post content. How to use CWs depends on your own prefs, consideration for others, possible rules on your instance, ever-evolving cultural etiquette… You might #CW for:
• local #politics
• #doomscroll topic
• content #triggering to folks w #ptsd
• as an intriguing headline
Don’t demand others CW their posts. You can always unfollow
