It's so beautiful to see masses of people switch to Mastodon / the fediverse. Big hope feels.
@Gargron you can say that again :)
wish i could convince my friends to give it another chance, though :( sigh
@Gargron It is indeed a good platform. Would be grateful if you can follow me back as I have few suggestions.
While it's nice to have them in the #Mastodon #fedi, it's sad that they're all flooding into a node that is #centralized on #cloudflare. Mastodon.social is a poor choice because it's not trully #decentralized and it feeds yet another centralized oppressor.
Mastodon.social users should choose a different node. This is important before they accumulate followers, because followers are not portable when switching nodes.
so kind of u😊🙏
@Gargron thank you for creating such a wonderful space. And tho I don't know you, thank you to the activitypub creators!
One Toot in தமிழ் please
@Gargron okai temme... where do u get the name mastodon and toot
@DILIPDRAVID The name Mastodon comes from a prehistoric animal, which is a fluffy elephant essentially. There is a band called Mastodon which is where I learned about this animal from.
The word toot comes from the Mastodon community. There was a long period when things were called just "publish" and "status" and people were coming up with different things to call them.
@Gargron wow.. interesting.. and thanks for sharing😍😍 mastodon👌👌
@Gargron so Mastodon means Mammoth?
@kshitijsrivastava They’re related but it’s a different species
@Gargron ohh..cool, had just started to read about them on wikipedia 😄Nice trivia.
@Gargron Thanks for giving us the choice !!
@Gargron Nice 👍
@Gargron Hi there
Is there an issue, should I see federated toots on my local scroll, galore at that?
@gazeshift Federated and local toots on federated timeline, local toots only on local timeline, both (but from people you follow) on home feed.
@Gargron Of course, but suddenly there is a flood of the federated ones on my local timeline. That's why I was a bit puzzled.
@gazeshift Those are local toots. If there is no second @ in the name, those people are on the same server as you are. "Local" as in "on the same server" (mastodon.social), not geographically. In your preferences you'll find language filtering options.
@Gargron Cool, thanksmuch.
@Gargron unless you suppress the sane voices and mastodon doesn’t become a platform for hate and bullying
@Gargron it's so exciting!!!
I havn't used it much. I like that it is more of a people's social connection arena with no agenda for currency making. I still use FB but only on a PC with Opera 'n' VPN. FB status tells me it has no location for me using it through that. Currently I am not using any Google Apps. I have a Google Android Phone but not signed in and am interested to make a more neutral phone.
@Gargron Play Store Apps*
@Gargron hopefully many more to come!
@Gargron - please mind the "Decentralize!" mantra as well... ;-)
@Gargron but where the hell are our earlier notifications feed ?
@Nadiim I'm confused. You can scroll your notifications as far back as you need.
@Gargron no bro it's not working and not showing my last day's notification too.
@Nadiim Did you press "Clear notifications"? If you have, they're gone. If you haven't, maybe your app is bugged. You can check if they're there from the website.
@Gargron no i didn't press this clear tab. It is by default showing like this.
@Gargron see this..It's not showing even you mentioned me now in your toot
@Gargron wish your board best time ahead
@Gargron Keep rocking!
@Gargron how many have switched since last week?
It was an easy decision, 'cause i found here no hate, no people who are trying to tell me, what to post and what opinion i should worship.
I found a nice community in helping each other, open to all questions and so i named this ... my comfort-zone 😊
@Gargron you've built a fantastic thing ! Thanks :)
It's less beautiful to watch the masses of people get attacked and driven away from the network for having centrist views.
@Gargron I see, so that’s your task. Funny how the truth screams you in the face but you can’t see it until the scales fall from your eyes.
@thj You ok there buddy?
@Gargron yeah, I’m all right. You?
