a quick guide to local-only posts on dads.cool 

dads.cool supports local-only posts, available in the web interface. These are great for content you think only dads should see.

A post marked as local-only will appear only to dads.cool users.

A followers-only post marked as local-only will appear only to dads.cool users who follow you.

IMPORTANT: If you pin a post, it will show up to anyone who visits your profile, even if that post was set to local-only.

a quick guide to exclusive lists on dads.cool 

dads.cool supports exclusive lists. If you set a list you’ve made to “exclusive,” posts from members of that list will appear only in that list’s timeline and not in your home feed.

This feature is great for following accounts that only post about one subject, for crossposting accounts, or for pixelfed feeds.

Use the web interface to set a list as Exclusive. You can only add accounts you follow to lists.


@alex There seems to be a convention among some people on this platform of tagging everything as sensitive. Why is this?

@Austin I used a cw because this (and the other quick guides to this instance’s unique features) are pinned to my profile—if I didn’t collapse them my profile would be extremely long before any unpinned posts showed up. It’s also kind to screen real estate to cw posts that max out the character limit!

@Austin “would it be helpful for readers to know what the post is about before they see it?” hasn’t failed me yet


OK cool. so if you put a cw on a post, all the pics are automatically tagged as sensitive?
