Per-post privacy settings are nice but unlike twitter on Mastodon you can’t immediately hide all your toots by locking your account and that’s a problem.
@ellavescent Deleted some toots instead. It’s probably for the best.
@ellavescent oof I really wish a „lockdown profile page“ type feature existed I think we did add an issue about it last time it came up here
[if you‘re having an emergency presently, do ask your admin to go into the db and set all your statuses private (this is irreversible, but, you know), that‘s the best quickfix I know of]
@halcy It was just 4 toots I was worried about as they might get someone hurt in retaliation. I’ve just deleted them.
@ellavescent may i boost this ? is a rlly good point
@pan Yes please do.
Think you can lock your account if you use Mastalab.
@_Chicanery You can lock your account anyway, but that doesn’t change privacy of past posts.
Think I misunderstood that functionality.
@_Chicanery Locking is split on here. You can lock the account so you can approve or deny followers, then you separately decide if a post is public or followers only.
