so on the eve of the #tumblr shutdown, Tumblr IP-blocked the Internet Archive.

Just to be EXTRA dicks.

Hey Mastodon fronds

I'm getting close to a technical implementation of the NZ Mastodon Project.

There'll be legal stuff to do after (CoC, ToS, insurance), but, it's getting to where it's feasible.



To do this, to make this work, I will have to charge money. Can we have a frank conversation about what's reasonable here, what's viable, what's even sensible?

My opening thoughts are NZD$10/mo.

What are yours?

Hey is it alright if the new tutorial, once released, will show up for all, including old, users? It's short and cute

How long should accounts with a redirect be kept? Perhaps indefinitely, but I think some admins might appreciate an opportunity to free up space. Thoughts?


Instance is synonymous with server, and I think using the word "instance" was a bit of a mistake on my part during early Mastodon development. It's a programming term that less people are familiar with from other contexts. I suggest using "server" in your UIs

The more Mastodon servers there, are, the better. The more spread out people are across them, the more the network is resilient to various failure modes.

The basic premise of Mastodon is that you follow your friends from different servers! So go forth, and explore the fediverse โ˜บ๏ธ
