Or maybe a bugfix weekend! Imagine this:
"For this weekend only (midnight-to-midnight Germany time), every bugfix [and feature?] you submit that gets merged will get you $5 sent to your PayPal a week later, pending testing."
And then Gargron and other lead devs spend lots of time testing and merging things, and put out a new version a week later once everything has been confirmed to be working. And then everyone gets a bunch of money, and Mastodon is smooooother!

Whilst you dust off & set up a new home here in the Fediverse
connect like a real human.
We do things different here. We're not controlled by bullshit corporate algorithms. Boosts matter. Hashtags matter. There are THOUSANDS of instances so messages take a while to filter through.
Start by checking out new folks on #introductions. Write one yourself with those random things you love: HASHTAGGED. We'll amplify you & help you get discovered!
The airshow is one of the only two trips I really make to Eastbourne. The other is Wyntercon.
I like the suggestion that when one enters Mastodon one should leave one's Twitter grudges at the door.
I fully support it.
...but then the elephant in the room becomes that it means some people well, simply, don't.
@iona yeah, they did get weird towards the end, I think I started picking it up just before the crackly dance music.
Shame most radios don't have LW much these days, always used to like scanning that range to listen in on french music stations which often had better playlists
@iona I just about remember Atlantic 252. Was a bit of a secret station as had to listen in on long wave. Used to be a little eclectic for a pop radio station, even in daytime.
Was disappointed when they turned it into a sports station (that didn't last long).
Looking for more moderators for mastodon.social (paid), DM me if you are interested.
If I find someone I will reply to this toot, so if you find this much later than now please check it for replies before applying.
On Guernsey, if you invoke an ancient call to the former Duke of Normandy and say the Lords prayer in french, you can stop roadworks.
Wonder if there is any other ancient rights in the UK to stop current political mess.
Please add descriptions to your images.
There are visually impaired users floating about the federverse and they deserve descriptions.
A simple description of "airplane" or "cute Kitty" is sufficient. You can do more if you like, but at least add a succinct, basic description if possible.
I write web code and take photographs
