@Mastodon My favorite Mastodon memory is the announcement of ActivityPub support. Kick-Ass project giving kick-ass federation a major extra kick. Awesome.

@Mastodon A year? Wow. The very first time a friend here shared hashtag, I realized that a little corner of focused writing with narrow lens (but wider arc) might emerge in this corner of this world. It has.

@dogtrax @Mastodon I remember writing the first and thinking: this could be a thing.

And you can't make a thing like this by yourself.

@katebowles @dogtrax @Mastodon

Thank you, Kate of the 3D glasses. 😉

#smallstories is a tag which has more "stick" than most for me.

@dogtrax @katebowles

When you mark a post with a star, what is your primary intent?

☐ Approval
☐ Tagging for later reflection
☐ Seeking further interaction
☐ Other

@celesteh
@inmysocks

@Algot @dogtrax @katebowles @celesteh either approval or just a general acknowledgement I guess. I don't really have a clear idea of a general meaning for it.

@inmysocks @dogtrax @katebowles

@celesteh got me thinking about it. Even though it's text is "Favourite", the star seems to be less a simple "like" system in the fediverse.

@Algot @katebowles @celesteh @inmysocks First two boxes ... check ... but I don’t really know why I do it ...

@dogtrax @inmysocks @celesteh @Algot

I star things here because I'm saying "someone heard you". It's like making eye contact with strangers in public: recognising the human. I'm saying I might not approve, but I get that you care about this. I see you there.

I do it here very differently than on Twitter, where I'm mostly bookmarking.

@Algot @celesteh @inmysocks @dogtrax

I live in a small street. Many of us know each other a bit. When we drive into the street, we greet each other with a nod or a wave. When we see each other elsewhere, we nod.

I use the favourite function here as a kind of nod, a solidarity.

@Algot @dogtrax @katebowles @celesteh @inmysocks

I rarely if ever use the star icon. It's not that I don't like things, it's just that I don't like to play favourites.

@Mastodon Umm....I think my only #mastodonmemory was discovering it via @pzmyers's blog and then signing up on Octodon.social.

It's a lot mellower than birdsite, and fewer Nazis!

@Mastodon El primer año de existencia, siempre se recuerda de una forma especial, al igual que el primer día en que entré a esta red social, cuando me encantó su elegante diseño y buen desempeño.

Esperemos sean muchos años más, los que conmemoremos y celebremos, la evolución de esta libre plataforma social. ☺🎂🎆

@Mastodon There was the time I saw that adorable dog/cat/chinchilla/parrot/bunny/rat photo and I just grinned like a perfect fool.

Oh, wait. That's every day here. 😉
