Thank you for your reports. You're helping us keep the instance safe and friendly. Please keep sending them in if you see someone breaking the rules ( mastodon.social/about/more ).

Just so you know, there's no automated report handling on mastodon.social; we read each one carefully and make a case-by-case judgment.

Don't forget to mute or block if you see something that's allowed but you personally don't want to keep seeing. No one will judge you; your timeline should be your space.

"no one monitors this account, don't message it"

Use @Support if you want help.

OR ask questions publicly attaching and people will help answer your questions! (this is the best option)

Given that this (mastodon.social) is most shared instance, to preserve the ideals of decentralization we have closed sign ups in favour of spreading new users through the various alternative instances

— you get access to the same network wherever you sign up —

You can find a lot of these instances here:
instances.mastodon.xyz/

And share this with your friends: joinmastodon.org/

An important regression was unluckily reported a few hours *after* the release went out, so now we have to immediately bump it up to v1.4.3 with a hotfix. No special upgrade instructions but updating the code are necessary github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

We are truly sorry for the inconvenience. We have lots of systems to assure code quality, review changes, test releases, but sometimes errors still slip through the cracks.

v1.4.2 released with many important bug fixes as well as features, such as customizing web UI columns and deleting your own account

Upgrade notes: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Roadmap for 1.5, has been aptly named "Admin Love".
Hope you will all like what's in store!

discourse.joinmastodon.org/t/r

(Reminder this is an unmanned account, and we will not respond to any @'s )

In the 1.4 Roadmap we had the feature "patch-notes modal", but it did not come to fruition. One of the problems: we had not figured out how to do it in a simple way.

So we are now opening up the discussion for two ways of doing it, 1. as simple as possible. 2. bit more fancy with translations etc.

Wanna help with fleshing this feature out? Head over to the discourse:

Would another venue of supporting be welcome?
Would or be something a lot of you users are missing in order to support the project?

We've started a discussion thread where we want to hear, which one you'd lean towards, and weighing pros and cons of the two services.

@Gargron is taking a few days off. Payday refers to 1 of the Month, since that is when pledges go through.

This is his first real vacation days since early April, if not longer, so let's help him out. By not talking to him tomorrow!

And help us get closer to our stretch goal so we can pay more staff, I realize it says Community Manager, but this is subject to change:

A friendly remider:
This account does not have anyone monitoring it, so questions are better directed at @Support or one of our community moderators:
@CM_chrismartin @CM_noelle @CM_rushyo @CM_eramdam
Alternatively check out the github for issues github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ ,
or discourse for questions discourse.joinmastodon.org/


And lastly, we are going to set up a category for the greater as well, where you are all welcome to give us feedback on developments, both socially and technically. My, @maloki, hope is that this can help mend some divides in the fediverse. I will reach out personally to a whole bunch of you as soon as my thesis crunch is over (52hrs to go as of writing this)

In the meanwhile you can set up an account on discourse.joinmastodon.org/ if you are so inclined.

Further we are really want to hear from you, in the greater community, what you would want from this discussion forum. (on the forum, not in a reply!)

There is currently a thread up where you are welcome to engage in conversation about what categories (boards) you would like to see.
