Tihi :blobcatgiggle: I was just searching if my local municipality is already on #Mastodon but instead I found a "council request" to talk about getting them on the Dutch gov instance within a few months :blobhappy:

That's pretty cool :mastodon:

So unfortunately, the mastodon server instance I was using for Vintage Apparatus has just vanished without warning. So I'm looking for a new home for all the retrocomputing / vintage computing stuff i do on https://vintageapparatus.com/ - Any suggestions for an instance? I know of oldbytes.space - that has 370 users on it, which isn't a ton. Any others?

(I'll also be setting up something on Bluesky, but not as my primary)

A few weeks ago we ran a poll asking your opinions about bots & spam on the Fediverse.

A 38% majority said that some features help combat bots, but it's not enough.

When we saw our process automatically deflect the bots in the Spam Wave, we knew we could help. That's why we're working with other instances to build a set of tools for admins and moderators.

If you're an admin or instance owner, feel free to get in touch!

Friendly reminder:
En el fediverso (ergo tambi茅n en mastodon) los hastahgs son importantes.
Tanto para que la gente pueda silenciar # que les incomoden c贸mo para buscar temas y personas de Inter茅s.
As铆 mismo si pides ayuda o lanzas una pregunta, o tienes una propuesta o invitaci贸n no la tires al aire, usa un hashtag para que llegue a m谩s gente.
Depender de los rt de la gente est谩 bien, pero los # viajan s贸los distancias m谩s largas.

As we near the end of the month, please remember that your instances are run by individuals who pay for hosting of services to provide you the tools we all get to use to interact with each other.

These hosting services cost money, so if you can spare a few bucks, please support your admins!

You can support #AllThingsTech via this link:

A couple of dollars goes a long way!

What's the damn point of #lists in #mastodon when everything you send to a list still shows up in Home?

If I add something to a list, I do not want to see it until I click so see the list.

Home should be everyone I follow EXCEPT those I have assigned to a list.

#twitter did lists much MUCH better.

I had given up on pleading for more alt-text but I'll try again!

Please add alt-text to your photos/pictures it only takes a minute and does not have to be fancy. My policy is not to boost images without alt-text and I am not the only one.

This is one of the cultural things I like about Mastodon, the inclusiveness. Please don't ruin it.

(Edit) was sent a guide for alt-text

Literally TIL this existed, I used Fedi for what, almost a year now and I just found this out. -_-

And I wondered why I couldn't get any publicity for my books. (It's off by default which is probably a good move but if you're a creative you should turn it on. Preferences -> Public profile -> Privacy and reach.)

Hmm, seit ziemlich genau zwei Wochen verliert @heiseonline kontinuierlich Follower. 馃槙 Das hatten wir noch nie. In Summe sind jetzt schon etwa 1000 weg. Irgendjemand irgendeine Idee, woran das liegen k枚nnte? Wir machen ja 眉berhaupt nichts anders.

@ivory Is there any chance that the app could work with @gotosocial in the future? I have accounts that use both #GoToSocial and #Mastodon and I really don't want to have to use two apps.

I'd like to remind all Mastodon users that you can add a language filter to any follow relationship on Mastodon.

If you follow me and you don't speak German, you can easily remove my German posts from your timeline by adjusting the language settings.

Go to my profile page, select the dot menu and click "Change subscribed languages". Then select the languages that you speak.

This really is a hidden gem 馃拵 on Mastodon and not many people seem to know this feature :awesome:

Is there any way to make a #static site that is effectively a #microblog using #Hugo and #Mastodon?

Mastodon has no plans on expanding the content cache to feature retaining 鈥渇avorited鈥 posts. In short, when the cache wipes history, your and your users鈥 favorites will go too; like dust in the wind, and that鈥檚 now considered 鈥渂y design鈥.

What an awful design.

https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/26647

Edit: Good feedback here; I have created a different Req., clarifying we want to keep the media. Text database = small potatoes https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/30449

A thing I always liked very much about the #Mastodon web interface is the "media" tab on the profile page with a nice gallery!

Many social platforms just show posts+with+media here and I get that is what the tab means but it feels a little lazy 馃し鈥嶁檪锔

This is just so much better, love those details


In the end, it took me over an hour to extract one link from my #Mastodon favourites, as someone who already had a Python environment set up ready to run an archival tool without much fuss.


I actually have no idea how many boosts and favs some of the most successful posts get here in the Fediverse, because my instance shows a fraction of them no matter how successful they are. But guess what? I don鈥檛 care! It鈥檚 the best part here, to effectively unlearn that like-craving social media trait.

Everyone likes 鈥漧ikes鈥, but in here it happens in our own terms and overall the metrics don鈥檛 really matter in the end.

There's also an unexpectedly large number of tools to export #Mastodon data to #Prometheus. I'm not sure I even understand what Prometheus is, nor why so many people apparently want to export Mastodon data to it.


Anybody have a handy guide to mastodons architecture? Looking to understand how mastodon uses sql, redis, and sidekiq.

For people following along at home, I have two replies so far telling me I'm using #Mastodon wrong. In 10 minutes on a Sunday. Impressive.


I found a #Mastodon archiver (https://github.com/kensanata/mastodon-archive). But while it has a `--no-favourites` flag, it doesn't have the reverse (i.e. skip my own posts and only download my favourites). It doesn't seem reasonable, in terms of instance server load, to grab a bunch of data just to throw most of it away.

How do people meaningfully search and/or export their #Mastodon favourites? I've been favouriting (not bookmarking) a bunch of useful and/or interesting stuff since I came here, but the data seems difficult to access in a useful way.

When I use my instance's website, there's no search facility on the Favourites page. It only loads a subset of favourites upfront, so without pressing the "load more" button hundreds of times, I can't use my screen reader's find feature either.

When I try the favourites timeline of Semaphore, it also only loads a subset of my favourites, but apparently without a means of loading more of them.

In Mona on iOS, I would likewise have to keep finding, and then pressing, "load more posts".

When I try to find information on the internet about possible qualifiers for searching my own favourites, I get results about API calls and installing Elasticsearch as an instance owner.

In the "import/export" section of my account preferences, it doesn't say anything about favourites, and doesn't make it clear whether my posts archive would include them.
