More Masto etiquette!

When you post an image to Mastodon, there is a field that you can fill in with a description

It's an expectation of this instance that you provide useful descriptions to aid in accessibility

Assume that the reader of your post will not have access to the image, to get an idea of what you should put there

So if you're posting a screenshot of text, copy the text as well!

Descriptions should be long enough to convey what the image is supposed to, without extra details
