✔ idea to not let this day pass unnoticed - by @titi

[Re-listening to the Silmarillion awakens in me the desire to be creative]

Are there many designers here? I'm sure there're some although I haven't found many yet.

Let's use the tag - short and easy - for any user interface concepts of networks?

Since whole interface concepts require a lot of time and energy, I shall post under this tag small features that could be. The ones I'm too shy or too lazy to submit as issues. :)

Please, join

What?
You know more grants for 2021 in the fields of Interoperability, Privacy or Discovery – #fediverse or #activitypub ?
Why not add them here?

Wait a minute. the-federation.info isn't available too? My provider drunk again or what? cc @jaywink

I have little experience with sending money abroad, but rumours say both Visa and Mastercard support sending payments from your card to a card of a foreigner, using your normal bank's app, knowing only person's card number (or phone?) Commission is something around 1%. This is much lower than PayPal takes. Why then people still use PayPal for accepting one-time donations? If NGOs and other projects accepted this source of financial help, I would probably donate more often.

Hi all! We would like to hire one part time DevOps on Mastodon service maintain and helping us trying/integrating experimental features. We can accept remote work and welcome to apply. Please send us your Resume (or LinkedIn link) to Suji.Yan AT sujitech.com ;) Many thanks.

Fancy, finally an alternative to Let's encrypt!

It's always good to have alternatives around. ZeroSSL appears to be a European company that now provides free TLS certificates using the ACME protocol.

Does anyone know how to contact @href outside Fediverse? Anyone from ? Has the website got any other maintainers?

What's up with fediverse.network ? 😢 😢 😢 And pleroma.fr is down? 🙀

It's been snowing for hours... I was afraid snow will come late this year or not come at all. But it's here. Good to know some things are normal.

This is my annual post praising the Germans who are still in the lead of regional themed servers trend in .

Regional servers are great! (In theory) they allow users find neighbours, meet and do funky stuff together. Which is the best part of "social". ☕ 🍻

Hey, fedizens
I suggest choosing and using one hashtag for any small jobs *related to federated software* when you post about them on here. This will help more users find your offer. Will do? Or propose something else.

It's interesting that someone is looking for Friendica help on Upwork (extra exposure, yay), but I'm sure they could find someone to help them right here, inside

Calling Masto Admins that are hosting their own hardware:

Do you like having it local?
How do you avoid downtime?
Why are you hosting locally rather than using a VPS in the cloud?

#mastoadmin

Want to make Friendica more usable? 😀 - go to your Settings -> Display -> Content/Layout and enable "Stay local".

Now, whenever you click someone's name it will display their posts and profile and such on the same Friendica instance. Before it was redirecting to their original instance, making it very confusing for new users. Now it feels a LOT more natural considering that Friendica's best (in my view) feature is aggregating almost the entire fediverse and more, into one single piece (from mastodon to rss, pleroma to peertube and so forth). It makes it a lot better to keep it "local" 😀.

Thanks for implementing this guys, and I would strongly suggest to make this as "default". @hypolite @heluecht @alfred
