That's quite sad.

I often see people complaining publicly about Mastodon development here, but I almost never see people thanking @Gargron and contributors for the work they're doing.
I'm sure most people have more positive feedback than negative to make but don't.

Mastodon might have its problems but it's still a great piece of software.

Send some love to Gargron and others.
Or contribute. This is free software, you know.

@TheKinrar, @Gargron et beaucoup d'autres font un formidable travail sur Mastodon, et c'est vrai qu'on ne pense pas souvent à leur dire. La critique est aisée, mais il faut aussi voir ce que l'on a : et c'est franchement pas mal du tout. 🐵 .

Un grand merci à eux et à tous ceux qui apportent leur contribution sur Mastodon.

@Asriel @TheKinrar @Gargron

Use Mastodon is actually a little contribution. ^^

Indeed, Mastodon is great and really "social", thanks @Gargron !! :D

@TheKinrar @Gargron
Has less problems then most social media outlets*

@TheKinrar works like a charm, thanks to @Technowix and @Thoh for hosting, and ofc @Gargron for writing coming up with the idea behind Mastodon and implementing it.

@TheKinrar @Gargron Is one of the tragedies of OSS. Maintainers of successful projects rarely get the adulation they so richly deserve.

@TheKinrar It's just humans. They take positive for natural and complain for the rest.

Postitive hurts no one so no one makes an epidermic reaction to react.

Yes, it's late and my english is quite approximative. Hey! I live in Burgundy 🍷 😋


@TheKinrar @Gargron I am very grateful for this site, but I think critisizing the faults is part of showing that you care about Mastodon and want to contribute towards making it a better place.

@TheKinrar I defend Mastodon vigorously when I see it being attacked. And @Gargron is ever so awesome. But I try not to mention him too much when Pleroma users start poking, because I don't want to stress him too much with things of that nature.

Just keep in mind Eugen, we love and deeply appreciate the work that you've done. Your passion and dedication is the reason why Mastodon is so fun and so beautiful.

We wouldn't change it for the world! Thank you 👏

@TheKinrar The way you know it has reached the masses is when you get the full range of personalities here. If there are only like thinking people, then it is insular, not popular. And for the vast majority of the world, saying “it’s free software you can contribute” is like saying “The skies are free, get your plane and fly.” The number of people qualified to code into this is infinitesimally small. Don’t make the majority feel guilty making it sound artificially easy.

@TheKinrar @Gargron There's also the project's liberapay for those willing to donate financially 🙂

@TheKinrar Thanks a lot @Gargron, for giving us a truly social network 🤗

@thekinrar I regularly see people praising gargron as if he somehow created all of mastodon single handedly with no help

@thekinrar that still puts his name first above others

and everyone regularly thanks these people

@zeezeemoomoo I used the name of the person who contributes the most. Still, I did not say he was the only one.


still, he gets a disproportionate amount of praise
