I love friend camp. I’m always learning something new or thinking more deeply about something or laughing at jokes or seeing humans be sweet to each other here. It’s so good.

why do people put their email address in their email signature?

Sometimes I make a to-do list and then have to make a slack reminder for myself to LOOK at the to-do list.

Happy Casey and Allison’s Birthday, friend.camp!

It's so nice though to interact with him knowing he has absolutely zero power in my life anymore. Makes it a lot easier.

Nooo I went to the coffee shop this morning and my ex-boss (the bad one) is here having a coffee meeting. I thought this was a safe space!

My friends have the chillest baby. They just look around smiling and they’re basically just happy to be here, wherever here is.


When its raining, finn sits inside the dog door with his head sticking out so he's getting the best of both worlds.

It’s raining and I like it ☔️

Guess what? We went to meet our friend for brunch yesterday and they weren’t there and then we realized the date is actually today! So it’s a double-brunch weekend.

Is it a good sign or a bad sign that there are a shit ton of puffball mushrooms everywhere in our yard?

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp) * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet! Our beautiful icon is based on photo3idea_studio from www.flaticon.com, licensed CC 3.0 BY. It has been modified by @casey@friend.camp!
