I can't help but notice many toots from helpful newbies encouraging you to support the Mastodon Patreon.
It's fine to do that but understand it goes to just two big instances and the official Mastodon dev team.
It does NOT trickle down to YOUR instance. If you want to support your server, donate to it directly. Nearly all the costs of the explosive growth of the past few weeks is borne by local instances.
Mastodon is decentralized. There is no Mastodon Inc. This is not Twitter.
I didn’t realize that the Dutch fought for their bike lanes. There’s a lot of history within this that I’m currently naive about but excited to learn!
Here’s the article I’m starting with — How the Dutch got Their Cycle Paths: https://www.pps.org/article/how-the-dutch-got-their-cycle-paths
I am absolutely ❤️’ing the idea behind the #Fediverse and can’t believe the concept is less than 15yrs old.
After feeling completely abandoned by the ideology of connectivity as a expansion of self and curiosity due to the extreme that social media found home in, I am renewed by the idea within federated software.
It also encourages me to help build an add value to it, which feels wonderful and empowering.
Thanks you to all you who’ve built this timeline 🙌
To all mastodon admins:
Hi! I’m Evan Phoenix, the primary author of puma, the ruby webserver that powers mastodon!
Please reply or DM me if you need tuning help! I’ve got no officiation with the mastodon, just want to see you succeed!
(Quick Tip: set WEB_CONCURRENCY to core count * 1.5 and then tune MAX_THREADS. High thread values will see diminishing returns!)
I’m beginning to see quite a few “this is a positive space, there is no place for negativity here” style posts (especially by newer folks) so I want to hopefully clear something up:
This is also a space to be protected. From fascists, bigots, etc., and also from corporate capture (unless you want to watch it turn into what the greater web turned into. Some of us lived through that once. Would be nice not to again.) Opposing such things—and vocally if need be—is not negative; it is a positive.
What's it with people reporting every single one they dont like..
Please, stop with that.
This is not #Twitter. Please use features like mute or block if you don't like people but stop reporting otherwise I'll start banning people who keep reporting for nothing
I'm trying to keep things running with so many new people and it's such a waste of time to hear whatever you don't like
Otherwise go waste Elon's time, not mine
Maybe good to do a little #Introduction also Never done that before
Well uh.. meow! I am stux, I’m from the #Netherlands where I live with my girlfriend and our two little cats called #George & Washington or #Washy for short! We’ve adopted them from the streets and they’re named by people here on the #Fediverse
Like my gf, I just became 29 years old and I have a huge love for #tech, #space, #science and more nerd related stuff 😇 Over two years ago I started mstdn.social as a replacement for my former mainstream social media since it became hell. Since than I have expanded mstdn.social with other services like Misskey, Pixelfed, PeerTube, Matrix and so much more!
Since about a year now I quit my (terrible) job at a telecom company where I worked in customer support, I couldn’t stand the yelling anymore.. so I started my own business! It’s called Stuxhost.com♥️ @Stuxhost
My goal in life is to change the world, like many others I guess
