Because we ran out of space in the parent toot...
"Previously" means we've removed that bullet point and it's gone.
We WELCOME #Tumblr users looking for a new home.
📣 PSA 📣
Previously our instance (photog.social) had a bullet point that sated "No Porn".
This was a bad choice on our part as we fully support #FreeTheNipple and more.
"Porn" is very subjective and with the people coming from Tumblr was likely very off putting / disingenuous.
Nevermind our willingness to boost content behind Sensitive Media flags and CWs historically.
Thank you to all of our new Tumblr users and the broader federverse for bringing this up and working with us.

Ducks feeding in a marsh pond. The last time I was here, the entire marsh had dried out for summer. After a couple of fall rainstorms (which, if they'd come sooner, night have at least cut down on the massive wildfires last month), parts of the marsh have flooded again for winter.
I was halfway there before I realized I hadn't brought the film camera, but I at least had the Canon, which has a more powerful zoom anyway.

Welcome to photog.social, a growing community of photographers. If you're into photography you've found the right instance. Our benevolent @ambassador is on a mission to create a great space for photographers.
There is also a great intro guide at http://ow.ly/X98j30cDwBw explaining Mastodon's quirks.
I think one thing to be cautious about when recommending Mastodon to people from Twitter/Tumblr is how networks in masto/fediverse work. I don't think many people will be expecting that a thread that they see on their feed differs from the thread that people on the source instance see. Or that it would differ from the thread that their friend on another, different instance would see. If people are not made aware of these nuances I imagine they will become confused and/or upset.
A place for your photos and banter. Photog first is our motto
