I have very recently joined Mastodon community. Not very sure how it works. But good people in the community are helping me.
I have a query though. If I want to join the #WritingExchange instance , do I have to register separately as a new user with a separate user name or login ID or can I do than from my current user name itself?
@pinankin_writes Hey, welcome!
Yes, you'd need to create a user here. It's kind of like email -- you might have a firstname.lastname@example.org address and a email@example.com address. The services can communicate, but they're still separate accounts on different servers.
Please feel free to apply for an account here and we'll get you approved. Otherwise let me or @cjeller know if you have other questions.
@matt Hey, Matt. Everything is so well done, just a bit to take in. I created this account: @firstname.lastname@example.org to blog with, but when I play this video, I don't see the same thing: https://video.writeas.org/videos/watch/cc55e615-d204-417c-9575-7b57674cc6f3
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks again for creating this outlet ✌️
@PEEPOOPEEPOO Hey, thanks! Glad you like it so far.
We actually had something going on on our end that caused it not to show up. If you search for it now, you should see it! But please let me know if you don't.
