@Gargron Sorry for spamming you with replies. For what it's worth, I opened an issue with examples of errors I see after making the change:

I'd appreciate any help.

I'm temporarily taking down my personal mastodon instance for some changes. Feel free to mention me here (and not my account on my personal instance) if there's anything urgent in the meantime.

It will be back up soon but may not be ready for use right away. I'll toot from it whenever it's ready.

@Gargron Hey, if I'm running mastodon on a subdomain (using WEB_DOMAIN), would it be possible to switch to top level (i.e. make WEB_DOMAIN same as LOCAL_DOMAIN) without breaking federation?

Hey y'all, go follow my new mastodon account @b on my personal instance!

Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad

Hi just your local rabid copyleft zealot here with a gentle reminder that

if @Gargron had not changed Mastondon's license to AGPL, then John McAfee could have taken his blockchain-scented knockoff 100% proprietary closed gfy source and we'd never know what shenanigans he gets up to within it. Thank you Gargron!

At a conference today I saw a talk about a Germany non-profit working with school kids in : teckids.org

This is really important stuff.

They do surveys which show school teachers require children to sign up to proprietary services which kids younger than 13 aren't even able to legally sign up to.

They are trying to teach today's teachers to not ask kids to use WhatsApp or github.

They provide alternative FOSS solutions for schools, such edugit.org with kid-compatible TOS.

Having seen @dagoth 's works around Mastodon I asked them to make an avatar icon for me (is now my profile pic) and I couldn't be any happier with how it turned out! You should commission them for your thing.


We've all been there!

I keep seeing these posts about people who is going to be kicked out of their homes and ask for help to the community

We shoud collect data about this phenomenon.

This could be the beginning of a worldwide welfare system

I also read that one of the GNUHealth guys was envisioning a worldwide ID system so that a receiver of health care performances could be identified if they move around the world and maybe their scans could be accessible
