HOW CLITERATI WORKS โฌ‡๏ธ

YOUR PROFILE
You can customize your picture, bio, and banner by clicking on your profile and then on the button that says "edit profile." You can also change these details by going to preferences on the right-hand panel, and then "profile." You can also lock your account to make it private here.

THE RIGHT-HAND PANEL:

Home: The home feed features accounts that you follow.
Local: Cliterati user posts only.
Federated: Posts from the other servers that we interact with. You can follow any user you see in the public timeline too!

You can also use the search bar above the compose box to search for accounts on other servers.

PRIVACY:

Like on Twitter, you can lock your profile and posts to followers only, or just lock certain posts! So, on these servers (servers in the "fediverse" like Cliterati), content that you post will appear on other servers! It's connected like a web! Hence "federated." But Cliterati has a feature you can toggle on where your posts will ONLY appear to Cliterati users! That's the "local-only" option. Local is us, Cliterati users! Though if someone visits your profile specifically they can still view these, unless you have these posts or your profile locked to "followers only." You can select local-only by clicking the three dots on the compose box. You can also choose to direct message someone from the compose box. You can toggle your post (called "splats" on Cliterati, and sometimes "toots") visibility by clicking the globe icon on the compose box. In addition, all posts you see will have icons in the top-right corner showing you if they're public, unlisted, a direct message to you, or locked to followers only! The globe icon at the top of a post means that post is public! You can apply the โ€œcontent warningโ€ feature from your compose box to hide your post and give users a warning, so they will have to click to see it. We have a "threaded mode" you can access by using the three dots on the box as well, this will help you easily create a thread.

Posts that are very long you will have to click the double arrow in the top-right to see, or click that arrow to collapse a post. You can upload an image, file, or video using the paperclip on the compose box.

There are a lot more features for you to discover from the "app settings" on the right-hand panel.

Cliterati also has two-step verification! To enable 2-step verification, go to preferences in the right-hand panel, then under account click "two-factor auth" to toggle this feature on. You'll have to download an OTP app like FreeOTP to generate a log-in token each time you log in.

INTERACTING WITH USERS

  • You "like" a post by clicking the star to favorite it.
  • A "boost" is the same as a retweet.
  • click the arrow to reply.
  • click the quotation mark to quote a post. Users will not currently be notified if you quote them.
  • click the little flag to bookmark the post.-click the three dots to copy a link, report a post, block or mute a user, or DM them.

THEMES
Want to make Cliterati pretty for you? You can do this by going to preferences, flavours, and then Glitch Edition and use the drop-down menu there to select a "skin" or theme for Cliterati. We currently have 8 themes, 6 of which are unique to Cliterati.

Themes unique to Cliterati:

-Cliterati (that's our classic blue)
-H4CK3R (a stereotypical "hacker" theme, easiest on the eyes and my favorite)
-DeepSea (a chill theme with an underwater vibe)
-Halloween (our Halloween theme)
-Forest (a very chill, relaxing forest theme)
-BLACKPINK (a theme featuring the women from the K-pop group, Blackpink)

Themes that come built-in:

  • High Contrast (pretty much a dark theme)
  • Mastodon Light (a standard light theme)

The "default" theme option is just high contrast (I think).

DO NOT select the Vanilla Mastodon flavour as that will break your interface and you will have to change it back, I'm working on removing this.
