If you're looking for the Matrix chat page, go to https://chat.turtles.social.
If you're trying to use Element or another Matrix client on a device such as a smartphone, make sure to enter https://matrix.turtles.social as the homeserver URL.
The bare minimum you should know:
- Spaces are like Discord servers.
- Rooms are like Discord channels.
- Your username should something that you would feel comfortable giving to other people to connect with you. Do not pick something that you would not also use as an e-mail alias to communicate with others. This cannot be changed but your display name can be changed at any time.
- Enable secure backup and cross-signing or you risk losing access to your historical messages.
- Save your security key somewhere safe or you risk losing access to your historical messages. A good place to keep this is in a password manager.

- This Matrix homeserver is currently being run for the purpose of evaluation. There is no guarantee that data will persist beyond this period.
- Stick to the Element clients for the best compatibility but feel free to try others like FluffyChat.
For other homeserver administrators
