[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

Jolly good holidays to all fedizens of ❄️

(Left-to-right: , and behind the scenes all the other wonderful projects that don't have mascots yet:)

#Fediverse 👋

A really great list is shaping up on Jonatas Baldin's #delightful curated list of Libre Hosters. Check'em out here:

@codeberg @humanetech has a wonderful project called #delightful lists.

It's basically a framework for high-quality, community-maintained collections of open source gems around specific themes/ideas. It helps promote some of the excellent open source projects that may not get the attention they deserve, and it helps users easily connect to more open and ethical tools and alternatives to the proprietary software they use day-to-day.

Most delightful lists are maintained on #Codeberg. I maintain and contribute to a delightful list of creative software on my Codeberg account here:

Def worth a shoutout. :)

"This weekend marked the 10th anniversary since the diaspora* project was handed over by its founders to the community."

Thanks and congrats to the devs and the community. Also, glad to hear that #diaspora* v1.0 release is on the way with pod migration feature and proper API support.

Oi! While I was away, you Fedi have accumulated over 6 million registered accounts! ✨

Mastodon seems to keep growing most rapidly in server numbers, as always.
Surprisingly, Pleroma fork grew rather quickly in nodes.

(will have a look at data details tomorrow)

I want #Sticker 😎 !

This is what I dreamed about since a few weeks:
I recently #remixed
@padeluun with @davidrevoy .

#Sepia (PeerTube), #Rose (Mobilizon) and Mastodon are riding a Rocket powered by #Tux (Linux) and #GNU

I'm awfully sorry for the unanswered DMs and MRs that waited for days. I was ill 😷 and had no energy for computerz. But now I'm back 😺

@FloatingGhost Hi, is there by any chance an official Fedi account (release announcements, etc)? Pleroma never had one. It's actually pretty handy when there's a separate account for a project - makes it much more pleasant to keep track of things.

Books, cats & kindness 

The book is "The cat who came for Christmas" 🐾 by Amory Cleveland

Storytelling might be imperfect and structure a bit chaotic. But the dose of kindness is just right. Bonus point: the author being a man, a sensitive one. Recommended to everyone owned by cat(s), and to those who need a hideout from bad thoughts.

Books, cats & kindness 

Recent months were stressful. I long for simple sources of distraction / optimism. TV series work so so: too full of deaths, jokes that were funny 3 years ago, and unnecessary drama. I turned to books and found that my 50+ unread bookshelf consists mostly of non-fiction on economics, politics, IT, spying + fantasy novels that aren't good enough. Then I saw the book I'd read years before. Because of it I adopted (not baught) a cat. My quest for optimism is over (for today:)

hi folks! i'm tao, returning to the fediverse after a hiatus. if you came across @fediversespace back in the day -- that was me 🙂

i'm currently working on, a privacy-focused email alias service. i'll mostly be tooting about privacy, email, and maybe elixir! it's nice to be back here on the fediverse.

#introductions has a new maintainer 🥳

Starting in November 2013 as, later settling on, there have been many stages to this site over time. Initially a rather simple #NodeJS app, the frontend was completely overhauled by @ into the style it is currently. Some years later a complete rewrite was done by myself to the current #Django / #VueJS stack.

After a few years of dropping into lack of maintenance due to lack of time from my part to contribute, the site has now finally found a new maintainer, @, who is also active in the #Gitea project (which you may or may not know is also working on ActivityPub federation \o/). is a rather dear project to me, and it makes me happy that it may still have a future with a new maintainer, instead of going into even worse disrepair and eventually shutting down. There is a rewrite planned to fix the horrible scalability issues the site has been suffering from (ever since adding ActivityPub protocol nodes into the mix), if you're interested see this issue.

For those who want to help, there is also the Matrix chat room:

I would also like to thank the various people who have helped maintain data over the years, hopefully you'll stick around to help the site grow in the future too! 💚

#Goldfish is a brand new project created by @stux as a FOSS replacement for platforms like TikTok & Vine.

Development has started a few days ago and the first rought draft is online at

The platform is build in Laravel from scratch and the plan is to also add ActivityPub so it can connect with the Fediverse in the future.

Our git repo will be updated when a good first version is done ✅

We also have a Patreon page for the project! Hopefully I can spend many many more hours on it's development ❤️

The supply ship entered orbit, the first in years. We converged at the spaceport and waited for the most important delivery. The shuttle ramp swung down, and a man in overalls wheeled out a carton of paper. Page after page of truly random numbers, writ small. Another identical carton stayed behind, parsecs away in our capital. A literal one-time pad.

Finally we could send encrypted messages to our loved ones again. We hugged the delivery man and thanked him for his gift: privacy.


What about a big fediverse emoji collection on @codeberg?
Like the one from @puniko, but bigger, where everyone can upload there emojis, so we all could use the emojis from another...

I have already created an organisation.

please :boost_ok:

Tagging @stux, @volpeon
and anyone else you would like to tag... (These were the first people I imagined, who maybe want to share some of their emojis. 😁​)

#Codeberg #emojis #collections #repository

Finally published the source code for #FediQuiz. Head over to if you're curious how it was put together. Please don't bash me too hard about the code, JS isn't my area of expertise.
