Livester is a social space for cam models, studios and fan, owned by SoulCams.
Livester uses the social media engine called Mastodon. You can read more about Mastodon here
Models can make their own channel (timeline) and share information, links, images and videos. Users can comment on posts and follow each other. You are allowed to share erotic content, just make sure it's legal and fits the terms.
You can create your free account at https://livester.net/
Accessing Livester from mobile devices
Livester can be accessed through various mobile applications.
There are free and paid version also.
Please see the list of the apps through which you can access your Livester account: https://joinmastodon.org/apps
How to upload content
Once your account is ready, you can start sharing content.
You can do the followings:
- upload images, videos, audio files (note: file size must be below 40 MB)
- create your opinion poll
- share any links of other sites (Youtube videos, other media platforms, articles, etc)
The main body of each status update can be composed using the text field. The default character limit is 500 characters.
Links must start with http(s):// and are counted as 23 characters regardless of length.
If you include links in your post, they must begin with http:// or https://. All links are counted as 23 characters, no matter how long they actually are, so there is no need to use a link shortener to save characters. In fact, using a link shortener is actively discouraged.
You can mention users by typing out their full address, e.g. @firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that any usage of@word will be interpreted as mentioning the local user with the username word, if that user exists. Only the username part will count against your character limit – the domain is not counted.
You can use a #hashtag to make your post discoverable to anyone searching for that hashtag. Hashtags can contain alphanumeric characters and underscores, but cannot contain numbers only.
Each server offers a set of custom emoji you can use, like on Discord. You can use an emoji using its shortcode like :thounking:, or by clicking the emoji face in the compose box and browsing through the “Custom” category. You can also browse through and search for standard unicode emoji.
You can attach either files or a poll to your status.
Thumbnail for attached media, with options to delete, edit, or mark as sensitive
Click the paper clip to attach a file to your post. You can attach the following:
- Images (PNG, JPG, GIF) up to 8MB. Images will be downscaled to 1.6 megapixels (enough for a 1280x1280 image). Up to 4 images can be attached.
- Animated GIFs are converted to soundless MP4s like on Imgur/Gfycat (GIFV). You can also upload soundless MP4 and WebM, which will be handled the same way.
- Videos (MP4, M4V, MOV, WebM) up to 40MB. Video will be transcoded to H.264 MP4 with a maximum bitrate of 1300kbps and framerate of 60fps.
- Audio (MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC, OPUS, AAC, M4A, 3GP) up to 40MB. Audio will be transcoded to MP3 using V2 VBR (roughly 192kbps).
Edit media to add a media description or choose a focal point for the preview thumbnail.
By clicking the “Edit” link on the attachment thumbnail, you can load a modal which will allow adding a media description or changing the focal point. Although optional, it is a good idea to add media descriptions that briefly describe what is in contained in the media. These descriptions will be shown when the media fails to load for any reason, or when accessed by screen readers and other assistive technology. Setting the focal point is also optional, but can make preview thumbnails looks better when they are not shown in a 16:9 aspect ratio.
A poll with 2 one-of choices, expiring in 1 day
Click the bar graph icon to attach a poll to your post.
- You can add up to 4 choices. Each choice can be up to 25 characters.
- Polls default to one-of / single-choice. Click on the radio button to switch your poll to any-of / multiple-choice checkboxes.
- Polls can be set to expire in 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 6 hours, 1 day, 3 days, or 7 days.
Content warnings and sensitive content
One feature that Mastodon provides that you may not have seen on other social networks is the option to attach a content warning to your posts. When a content warning is included, the status content will be collapsed by default, and only the CW will be shown, similarly to an email subject line or a “read more” break. This can be used to add a summary or subject for your post, to collapse long posts, or to otherwise provide context or setup for the body of the post.
When media is attached, a checkbox appears to allow you to “mark media as sensitive”. This hides the full media behind a blurred thumbnail by default. Adding a CW to a post automatically marks the media as sensitive as well.
