Hi, I'm known as Komodozer, and I am a gamer. Say hello to me 👋
In 2014 I started to play a lot of Elder Scrolls Online, mainly Oblivion, Oblivion 2, Skyrim and Oblivion: Enhanced Edition.
Sometimes, I play Rainbow Six Siege on PS4.
I enjoy playing video games more than almost anything else in the world, and I see them as a great way to relax and unwind ☺️
P.S. Follow me for more game stuff.
#introduction #introductions Hi, I am Takky! I am an #akita #inu from the UK who actually speaks #Japanese! I am technically a #greymuzzle ? seen as I turned 30 this year. I sometimes go to the #manchester meets, #club #animalz however I have been all around the country including #leeds, #york and many moons ago #Londonfurmeets #LFM
Hobbies include #gaming, #reading (especially if it's #kyellgold) and tinkering around with #tech things occasionally. I recently got an #iMac #Mini with the M2 chip and I am enjoying it! However, do also have #Windows and #Linux. I use #PopOS at the moment.
I am also a massive #visualnovel #VN nut and am reading so many of them I can't keep track. Luckily #itch.io is useful in this!
I also read #doujinshi occasionally and speak #Japanese
Personal stuff: I am #LGBTQ and used to identify myself as #gay, however now I'm not so much bothered with labels and expectations around them. My #pronouns are #they / #them and I was #AMAB (Assigned Male at Birth)
Hi! I am a resting mental health #nurse obviously interested in #mentalhealth living in the #uk #unitedkingdom.
Hobbies include #photography, #gaming (or #gayming as I am #lgbtq) and #reading if I can be bothered! (I go in bouts of #bookworm and then stop) as well as fiddling with #tech as long as it's not too obtuse.
Hoping to find #knowledge, #chats, #memes and enjoy an #opensource #alternative to #birdsite!

Hi all just joined and trying to find people I know! Im not sure if all is working smoothly as yet! I like the set up #introductions
Greetings all! Been exploring the #Fediverse and #Mastodon instances recently, just checking out the biggest server! A little bit about me:
- Ruby programmer and open source tech enthusiast
- Fan of foreign languages, I’ve studied #French #Spanish #Portuguese #Turkish #Persian #Tagalog and more
- I’ve grateful to have travelled to a few places in the world
- Trying to promote positivity and civilized discussion
Feel free to say hello in any language I’ve learned! #introductions
#introductions (new one as I moved to a new instance! ) :dragn_tea:
Hi! I'm a curious french dwagon, in her 20s, doing a PhD in Computer Sciences! :purple_dragon: :heart_transgender: :heart_bisexual:
I like to talk about tech subjects (around work or my personal projects), ranting about C/C++, talking about videogames (FFXIV...), infodumping on some musics (especially videogame OSTs) :blob_cat_peek:
I also like to toot about nerd shit we're doing with my dear S.O. 🦊 💜
I didn't mention it in earlier post versions, but expect some queer/furry content too~ :dragn_mlem:
Feel free to drop a follow request, I put my profile in locked state to be able to check who's following, and I rarely refuse a request. Please don't send a follow request if you're minor, as I can sometimes (re)toot some lewd/NSFW stuff (always CWed appropriately). :dragn_owo:
(And, obviously, please have at least a few toots, a bio... some proofs that you're not a bot, you know? :dragn_sip: )
I might have a weird way to interact with people I'm not familiar with, sorry in advance if I make mistakes or seem weird, but don't hesitate to tell me about it... 🥺
And in general, don't hesitate to tell me if you think I'm doing something wrong, I'm always seeking some feedback to improve :blobhaj_heart:
[Edit 1: Clarified posts to expect, updated some emotes]
Wow, how come in #Tweesecake I cannot sometimes hit win alt L on a user to follow them whnen viewing the #introductions hash tag. sometimes actualy in my home tl too. This should not happen, btw the devs know of this issue and no one has a clue as to why this happens. I've never yet seen this in myh federated tl, I'll have to keep an eye on this.
I am of course part of the great #TwitterMigration If you know of any #Mastodon #PixelFed or other #Fediverse people or servers of a rail, transport, or community activism sort, please do let me know or pass me along. I am always chuffed to see more railway peeps! I also have a bicycle and walking path along much of my 200km length!

Greetings everyone! Adaptive Electron works on remote sensors, I.T. infrastructure, and machine learning. We believe that open source systems are critical to make new technology benefit everyone, rather than strengthen patterns of disparity, and are correspondingly excited to be on Mastodon. #introductions
Hi there. I write songs. I live in Australia.
hey everyone this is a new account for @beef_skeleton and @ULTROS_PROFESSIONAL’s radio show on 3cr, slacker radio!
we’re going to be posting over here for radiothon but also for the long haul thanks for having us!
Just discovered the #Introductions tag and some other Fediverse etiquette tips I wish I’d known earlier. Whoops. Anyway, how we doin’?
#introductions HI! I'm Fresa. I like to do open-source software development and tinkering. I am a Linux and android user. I enjoy music, sometimes gaming, bicycle riding, and drawing. I hope to make new amazing friends here! Thank you for reading my introduction post!
Following my failure to do a week's worth of questions about me, I was going to do a new #Introductions post last week for my 40th birthday but... nothing much has changed from my perspective from what's in my bio...
I'm still a #queer #geek from the UK...
so... shall I try an #AMA? What do you want to know about me?
Hi all OSM people.
This is the new account for the upcoming State of the Map Europe #sotmeu! We already feel right at home here together with @openstreetmap @OpenStreetMapUS
We will be tooting to keep you updated on news about the conference before, during and after!
The first thing we want to share, check our brand new website 🥳: https://stateofthemap.eu/ (kudos @jbelien)
#introductions Hello everyone! :thinkerguns:
I'm Spacepiece, a virtual assistant hoping to use my skills to help small businesses thrive. I have various interests on Mastodon, like programming, SEO, AI, books, philosophy, art, and social issues like empowering women and diversity, equity, and inclusion opportunities. I also like to boost toots that feel worthy and insightful. I'm excited to start my journey on Mastodon and to connect with new, interesting ideas and people.
Hello #Mastodon! We are new on the block, so #introductions are in order.
We are a devops company from Germany, and we love all #opensource infrastructure tools, like #OpenStack #Terraform #Ansible etc. Why are we here? To contribute back and take a more active role in the community.
Mostly looking to contribute code, documentation and maybe some time to projects. Also lots of interesting discussions would be great. 🥰
@heidilifeldman @azita Oh super good point about #hashtags. Mastodon does not have full-text search, so hashtags are super important. So let's add a few here...
omgggg!!! what a day! You all have awakened the MIGHTY @azita, our #Politics editor!
She is one of the very most interesting of my newsroom colleagues but she's having that classic new-to-the #fediverse situation where you log in and it feels like nothing is happening.
Pls follow her and connect her to ALL THE THINGS and of course tell her all about #FensterFreitag and #Caturday and @FediFollows!!! #politics #introduction #introductions #news #journalism
hello #mastodon I'm Craig, live in the UK spend most of my time online as i'm #disabled so don't go out on my own. my main acc is @guiltmanager but have an ac here to attract more new #friend #friends who hopefully enjoy #unusual #questions
#introduction #introductions #intro #intros #chat #friendship
Newly joined here, so an #Introduction is called for.
I'm a father who chose Just_A_Dad_Who_Loves_His_Kids as a self-descriptive name. You can call me Dad, or Dude, or Dud if you want. Or just "you." Just please don't call me Late For Dinner.
My teenage child came out to us as #Trans several months ago. Prior to that they came out as a "they/them."
I guess my main reason for creating an account here is to seek out, and maybe even provide support from/to other parents in similar situations. Also looking for ways to better support my trans child whom I love more than life.
So, hello, tech.lgbt! Oh, I'm also an IT professional, so there's the "tech" part of it.
Hi there! I'm Mae, you mae (hehe) know me from @taminaminam. I'm a neurodivergent queer trans girl! My pronouns are she/her, fae/faer, they/them and it/its.
I like doing art and photography and used to like tech and programming too (let's see if I get that passion back with some projects)
I'll mostly be using this account to be way too horny for my own good (so expect lewd content), exploring my own sexuality more and also getting to know toot.site. maybe I'll move my main account (mentioned above) here too, who knows
I also like using tone indicators as a means of better communicating the tone of a message over text, a list of which you can find at https://www.taminaminam.icu/tone-indicators.html I'd love if you used tone indicators when replying to me if the tone of your message can be ambiguous.
So, this is the end of my preliminary #introduction #introductions~ feel free to ask me anything you'd like to know about me (however I may not answer every question). And with that, hello there toot.site~
I take regular unplugging breaks from #socialmedia . The #experts say it's a good thing, LOL. But I can't quite figure out whether doing this makes me more #lonely , or it helps with the #melancholy state of my #mental #health , because I've always remained slightly removed from it, even when I'm #present . #Virtual #connections are great, but they somehow feel dispassionate, like the machines operated by the people behind them. #introductions

Hi, I'm gbSketch. I've been doing a sketch or speedpainting every day since new year's day 2012. I love environments, colours, and otherworldly vibes. This account will be automatically crossposting sketches from my site, but I intend to use it to manually post other stuff too from time to time. Let's go on a journey!
I'm very happy to be here. I'll be trying to find some of my writer friends I haven't heard from in a while. I've written lots of things few have read because I’m basically horrible at self-promotion. I also like to travel. I once almost got stranded in Siberia without a passport, and I was the unwitting cause of an international missing person’s manhunt. Of course, I was completely innocent of any wrongdoing, but I apologized anyway. #WritingCommunity

Hi everyone! My name's Hayden, and I'm a hobbyist programmer who mostly does Python and Godot. Other than that, I like a lot of different things - for example I already have 20-30 hours in TOTK. Taylor Swift music is my favorite, I play some piano, and am mildly interested in current events.
I'll be using this account for everything from coding questions to random jokes. Anyway, hi, and have a nice day!

Positivity Has Cooties: A Mastodon Story
#Mastodon #writing #writingcommunity #introductions #happy #blog
I've only been on Mastodon for about a month and a half. I want to start by saying: I love everyone. (And also you bots.)
I was chatting with a friend last night, and I mentioned a little post about using charity links in writing. I described the origin of the idea as "Mastodon rubbing off on me. It's like positivity had cooties."
And I've been reflecting on that all morning.
I only use #twitter now to tell people that I don't use #twatter and give them alternative #contact info like an #introduction #introductions to #mastodon or my #Facebook #Skype and #Email address. I would suggest everyone else does the same, leave the #spaceKaren #fascverse to crumble to nothing. Whilst you're at it check my #Pinned post if you like #Unusual #Question #Questions please #Boost thank you!

I spend time wandering in libraries and cycling. I’m working on a masters degree in library & information science.
I live with my partner and our cats.

I'm John. I do traditional (pencil, ink) and digital art (Procreate).
I just moved from another instance that was focused on crafting, as mastodon.art is a better fit for my art.
Here are a few recent pieces so you can see what I like to do. Mainly portraits and creatures.
It's nice to meet you! I can't wait to find more super art and artists!

Hello Fellow Bird Enthusiasts,
I am new here and wanted to say hello! I have been birding for a couple years and slowly creating my very own life list through Ebird. I'm excited to share facts, photos, and interesting finds with all of you.
For my first post, I want to share a first for me. A greater yellow legs in a nearby river park. It may seem quite common, but it was a first for me and apparently I was the first to see it on Ebird for this particular park hotspot as well! ✨ #introduction #introductions #bird #birdtown #nature
