My day job involves building websites for the ultra rich and it's weird to think about the vast wealth disparity.
Makes me so proud of Pixelfed, and how I am building an accessible and ethical IG alternative for everyone.
It's real. It's community. It's love.
No amount of money could buy this. ❤️ #pixelfed
Offer for all those frustrated with open source or shy and need problems fixed or features added
Hey, so if you want to use open source but find its problems too much, have errors or need certain features a project doesn't have but others whether than be closed or open source do please feel free to reach out to me and I'll go find a way to submit an issue or issues for you. Because open source is only good if we all work together and add or fix things others need or have problems with, not if we only selfishly only get our own problems fixed or get features only we want to see added.

I'm trying to follow up on this, will post another update if there's anything new.
The ideal (and least confusing) solution would be for PixelFed to release their own official apps which are still in beta testing. However, there isn't a release date for them yet.
"Our system thinks you might be a robot."
No, it doesn't.
It's doing a mindless look up of the IP address against a list of IP addresses - something which any beginning CS student could code.
But, still, thanks for saving me the time and trouble of ever viewing your site, finding out about your product, and having to block all the #privacy invasive trackers you surely have.
