chao lore 1 Show more
chao usually live in small groups, called chaotices, often protected by a guardian. in the games, this guardian is the player character, and the angel island chaotix's protecter was chaos.
the chaotices are mainly for companionship, are welcoming to (friendly) strangers, and are always by a water source. the chao keep the water source clean and plant trees for food, but do not build structures of any kind.
chao will often explore the local area, and sometimes visit other chaotices.

Here's what to CW!
•graphic violence or gore
•hate topics (racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/etc)
I know that list seems long, but you'll get used to it soon enough!
Just a heads up, if you choose to move instances, mastodon allows you to export your followers so you can easily follow them again after moving~
@azushark It took 15-20 mins for the idea to come to me but once it did I had no excuse but to draw it. :3
I made this for a silly thing, but I feel like it's applicable to all of you too. :3
don't like mastodon's interface?
try out an alternate interface! the two i know of are Pinafore and Halcyon
Pinafore is a single-column client with its own design, at https://pinafore.social
Halcyon is a near 1:1 copy of the Twitter interface, and is available in a lot of places, one of which is https://itter.photog.social/login
did you know: here on sleeping.town we have a custom theme called Sleeping, based on Glitch Edition! as far as I know, it's the first ever completely custom skin for Glitch
it comes in four shades - Noon, Dawn, Dusk, and Midnight!
local users: you can pick a shade by going to your Flavours settings: https://sleeping.town/settings/flavours/sleeping
This also generally includes meta discussion about birdsite or even here. Birdsite conditioned many of us to be used to forced exposure to this kind of stuff; CWs let people selectively partake, and if you don't personally care, you can set your client to expand all CW'd posts by default. All I ask (and I assume many others) is you at least take using a CW into consideration.
New folks: CW your political posts, please. Political shitposting also qualifies. We have a culture here of voluntary participation with political content.
Hi! i'm Violet, this is my #introductions
I absolutely adore raccoons, they are precious and cuddly.
I care a lot about my friends who are the best, i love you all.
I am very interested in technology, art and videogames but I still don't know what I want to do in my life as a career.
In my free time when i'm not asleep, I like to try new interesting things, make music, 3D models and just have a chat with friends.
I am trans, use female or nb pronouns and i will probably give you a long hug.
just so new people know, there's an option in your settings to stop search engines from tracking all your posts!
it's disabled by default for some reason, but I recommend enabling it for both your own privacy and the privacy of anyone who replies to your posts!
note to self: never typo 'hehe' as 'heeh' ever again D:
Trying a new instance which seems like a good time for new #introductions.
Hi, my name is Mori! I’m a genderfluid furry who likes to program, play video games, and watch anime and Japanese pro-wrestling (puroresu).
I play all kinds of games, from fighting games to exploitive mobage to classic JRPGs.
I’m originally @mouseglitch but I’m giving this instance a shot. I’d love to meet new people and hopefully make some friends!
can anyone recommend a queer pixelfed instance? (please boost)
hey everyone, please tag your twitter screenshots! I get you're angry, but a lot of us fled that place.
