A very important thread about Tom Lehrer, genius, age 91.
I'd like to have your feedback regarding this redesign, especially on the content/copy/accessibility/bugs.
The new version lives at https://next.funkwhale.audio/
You can share the feedback here or on https://governance.funkwhale.audio/d/zVW3YaeF/funkwhale-audio-redesign.
Thank you so much for your help, boosts appreciated!
(don't mind the cat images, some illustrations are coming to replace those ;)
After careful consideration, we have decided that this new and exciting UI will be spun out as a separate Pixelfed Labs project.
This means you will be able to self host just this UI and use it with Pixelfed, Mastodon, Pleroma and other mastodon api compatible projects much like Pinafore and Halcyon!
for those wondering how to establish trade relations with crows:
- feed crows food A regularly
- when crows decide to bring you gifts, feed them food B
- when crows bring you different categories of gifts, feed them a food-per-category, ex: food C for jewelry, food D for paper money, etc
- crows will recognize these exchange patterns and opt to bring you things in order to acquire desired treats
good luck! 🐦
general PSA Show more
friendly reminder that Activity Pub (the protocol that lets your posts and instance federate with other instances) is not a secure method of communication. please don't use the fediverse for mission critical communications, organizing actions, or sharing personally identifying information. that's just not what AP was designed for.
PSA: if you need secure communications, use something with end to end encryption.
If you want to protect your followers' privacy, you can make your follower lists private:
1. Go to Settings
2. Go to Preferences
3. Tick the "Hide your network" box
4. Select "Save Changes"
You will still see your list of followers, but others won't.
(This also hides the list of who you follow.)
Translations needed for Fediverse projects Show more
If you know a language other than English, you can contribute to many different Fediverse-related projects by translating their text.
Here are some translation links:

#uBlockOrigin is a really good and easy-to-use ad-blocker for your web browser. It also blocks some other threats to your privacy.
You can install it from your browser's add-on or extensions menu, and it's available for all major browsers including Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Edge and Opera.
It works well alongside #PrivacyBadger, and switching.social recommends you install both.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do NOT install "uBlock", it has a similar name but is a totally different app.
Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!
@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.
The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.
There's an open issue for it here:
There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.
Can you help?
(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance )
An odd duck. Yes, that one.
Ceejbot's mastodon instance. This is an overprovisioned, personally-run instance running on AWS. I welcome friends to create accounts here. I intend to run it as long as people are using it.
