Mastodon's 2 Year Anniversary: A retrospective
Are you hiring people? Or all alone?
@Gargron Someone's going to razz you for "irregardless," but it's fine.
@Gargron it looks good to me!
@Gargron it's pretty good, I'd just say it could use maybe a little fluff?
It's a listing of facts, which I think is fine, but reads a little dry 🤷♂️
It's seriously fine, I'm just looking for something that could be improved...
I learned about the shatner thing.... I like it ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
@Gargron it's good! And you introduced me to a new word - Fazit - so that was fun 😀
It's good the way it is. Maybe a bit techy. I would have put the last bit you have on there first and fluff it a little. I can send an example for you to work from if you want to change it but I'm still not even sure if you have me muted after jabbing you a couple times.
@Gargron Fazit is not a common english word, probably, but a little flair is allowed and good
@Gargron 'irregardless' is not a word.
@Gargron #1 on hecker news already
@Gargron This is an awesome synopsis! Love the synopsis and to see the progress. Very inspirational!
@Gargron gz man
Congratulations on two years of this wonderful social revolution!
May many more come to pass!
@Gargron happy birthday Mastodon!
@Gargron Congratulations! Quite an achievement. 🤜 💥 🤛
@Gargron Congrats! 🎉🎉
@Gargron What does "Featuring friends on public profile" mean? Is this the list of followers with profile pictures or can you actually hand-pick a few friends that will be shown more prominently?
@codewiz in the web app, go to someone's profile and open the menu. you should see an option something like "feature this profile". if you click that, your public profile will show a list on the side called "[your display name]'s choices", and up to 4 random links to the people you selected as featured.
you can see what it looks like by opening my public profile page, where it says "infinite love's choices"
@trwnh Ah, interesting: If you picked more than 4 accounts, it randomly displays 4 of them each time you reload.
Just so you know "irregardless" isn't a word - you just mean "regardless".
@Gargron Well done!
@Gargron this means I've been on Mastodon since half a year after it's inception - cool!
@Ayior I think I joined originally in October of 2017. It was the first I'd ever heard of it! Felt like I'd missed the boat. But it didn't really hurt me in the end. :)
@Gargron Congrats!!! 🎉
@Gargron the person who apparently creates the stats you used in the post is subtooting how bad it is to not give credit. Just a heads up.
@jerry Added link and DM'd author. It's my bad.
@Gargron Congratulations to you and the Mastodon project.
@Gargron @ashfurrow not bad. Honestly though I really hope it gains enough traction that brands start getting on it just like Twitter. Even if you don't like the funny memetic advertising accounts, it is just plain useful as a way to ask a question (especially if relevant to others), or to put bad company behavior on blast
@Gargron will you have looking forward post?
@Gargron I like it so much! Where is Myspace Tom? 😯
@EmmaG That was just a little joke. All new users follow their server's admin by default (like me on mastodon.social), so those admins are like MySpace Tom used to be (default friend on MySpace)
@Gargron happy birthday 💞
