@viTekiM Yeah, I guess that must be it. I was thinking something like the n00b bridge, but that's a different sort of thing, where the game doesn't do a good job of explaining a basic game mechanic and stumps players who don't look for help outside the game proper, like in the manual.
What's that thing called in wide-open #videogames where first you have to complete some minor task before you're allowed out in the open? Some dated examples:
#KingdomOfLoathing required proof of spelling before you could chat with other players.
#WindWaker requires a series of tasks culminating with a sail before you can see the sea.
#Ultima7 required solving a minor murder mystery before being let out of the first town and into the world.
It's not just a tutorial, there's a name for this.
Did you know that #Canada gives new naturalised citizens free access to a bunch of attractions around the country?
I need to hurry up with my application. Maybe I could do all this travelling next year!
#introduction I am a mathematician and cognitive scientist by training and troublemaker by inclination. I have been following the mastodon universe from the sidelines for a while now but a recent article (and facebook's tanking stock!) made me create an account here.
As a complete n00b, I am at your mercy. Tell me what I should know and who I should follow!

@flussence When your software is overwhelmingly used in a particular way because you chose certain defaults and language that ecouraged that use (e.g. the belief that CWs are censorship and therefore bad), then yes, you are responsible for me seeing unpleasant users almost exclusively from Pleroma.
