There’s been some fantastic work by others, and I see you all. And boost a lot of your good shit.
We’re all building this together, by our presence, by our code, by our outreach, by our care for each other.
I think this mostly covers it.
Hi, herd, I’m back!
Ps, did I ever tell you that I am ?
(Totally seamless, no one will notice! )
Last time around I couldn’t deal with DMs due to lack of spoons, that is not an issue now, so my DMs are open, but always remember, for more efficiency it is in 9 of 10 times better to write me a public/unlisted message, especially when you have questions, so I can boost the questions I can’t answer at the moment.
In regards to this I will also be making myself an alt account for more of my private stuff. But also, just a place I can hang and chill when I’m not necessarily working. I will without hesitation block anyone who brings up work with me to that account.
So, if you want to talk about mastodon the project, you find me right here on @maloki as usual.
But if you want my private side, i'm over on @maloki 🕵️♀️ this one wont be open for everyone but posts probably mostly public.
I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of questions. Some of you wont even know what I’m back from/for?
I’m back as Project Manager for #Mastodon.
I’m back from being sick, too sick to function. I ended up getting a month and a half of sick-leave, but it took me a while to actually get there. And that, together with some other stuff, has brought me back, on top of the world (that's how I feel)
It’s not April 1, but I knew it then. I wanted to tell you all, because I mean wouldn’t it be a fantastically bittersweet cruel joke, that turned out to not be a joke?
At the same time I felt it was too mean, since then I’ve been sitting here eager, happy, and excited to tell all of you that I am back.
And hopefully back to stay.
