✔ 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

If anyone's interested, so far it has been established that Pleroma can remove attachments of deleted statuses from DB, but it requires (?) a server reboot.

Alright I'm ready to officially introduce:

Fediverse town is a #forum for any discussion related to the #fediverse.
Go check it out and me one of the first people to start a discussion there.

#Introduction #Introductions #FediverseTown #FediverseForum

There is now a frontend proxy app for Wikipedia.
Called Wikiless. You can visit it at :

Project page can be found here :

Came across a curious bug: when post with uploads is removed by user, Pleroma removes post, but does not delete attached files from database. Noticed on servers v. 2.3.0-1 and 2.3.50-develop. Eternal attachments 🤔

It's often assumed that because Twitter has a larger userbase than the Fediverse, that accounts would automatically get more followers there.

However, many accounts (especially FOSS projects) have more followers here on the Fediverse.

Some examples (as of 26th July 2021):

@fdroidorg has 10.8k vs 7.33k on Twitter

@k9mail has 1.57k vs 680 on Twitter

@Minetest has 1.39k vs 785 on Twitter

If you know any Libre projects that are yet to join the Fedi, please ask them to give it a go!



Now, tell me again why we can't have numbering which lets us allocate a unique number to a service? (I give a spam number, but I'd still prefer a decent-sized number block.)

QT mruef: Full phone number database of #Clubhouse is up for sale on the #Darknet. It contains 3.8 billion phone numbers. These are not just members but also people in contact lists that were synced. Chances are high that you are listed even if you haven't had a Clubhouse login.

sport, sexism 

The International Handball Federation fined a Norwegian women’s team for not showing enough skin:

Can we have a sport without sex-specific rules forcing the women’s event to be soft core porn? Sheesh.


#MastoAdmin Are any other admins with application signups enabled noticing a spike in spambots? We're getting a surprising amount of attention over here. Easy enough to reject, but I still wish there was something to block that'd just make them disappear.
Also, what's even the point of these phrases? "Licensed Frozen Gloves" seems like a very mad startup idea.
(Fantastic rubber bacon, though? I'd buy that!)

We have a couple of bits of exciting news for you all 🎉

Firstly: we've moved to a new forum. Check out our announcement here:

The other bit of exciting news is that we've forked the excellent Otter app to bring development in house. The new Funkwhale for Android has been rebranded and is ready for new development. Check the announcement on the new forum here:

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

🚨🇬🇧 Majority of the European Parliament allows e-mail, messaging and chat providers to search all private messages for allegedly illegal material and report to the police (#chatcontrol). We will take legal action.

Finished "Sunvault".

It has a beautiful cover which brings to mind floating city concepts.

The contents was a bit different from what I'd expected. Still there were 2 stories that made my brain purr.

Any more recommendations for reading (or visual) sources about solar, lunar, eco speculations? Non-fictional, real small stories of successful related projects would be of interest as well!

OMG. officially joined Fediverse!

Maybe my wishes are coming true only when I post them publicly? :fishthink:

OK, Fedi Santa, I wish studio Ghibli (jp_ghibli on Tw) to join Fediverse
