Muting

See Filters

To Hide Monsterdon from your feeds:

  • add a filter for "#monsterdon"
  • Set to "hide completely"
  • Check all desired contexts to mute monsterdon posts. (recommend at least home and local feeds, if you don't want to participate at all)
  • Save the filter!

You can optionally set an expiration for the filter in case you might want to check it out later :).

Many people also will post as a thread of replies, and you can mute just that thread by opening the '...' menu on the root post and selecting "Mute conversation"

Muting/filtering monsterdon is necessary due to a quirk in how mastodon handles Post Visibility. Monsterdon tends to be very noisy - posts have to use public post visibility in order to appear on the timeline, but all public posts including replies are also added to the Local Feed. There is no current method to post only to the #monsterdon feed (see Fine-Grained Post Visibility).
