I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.

I am proud to come out as a gay man.

I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.

I love you guys ❤️

I am anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, and believe black lives matter. If you have a problem with that, smash that unfollow button.

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

Keeping people informed, safe and supported are important core values for Pixelfed.

We will be rolling out labels to posts related to COVID-19.

What we enabled for #Pixelfed:

- Add photos to stories
- Display stories
- Remove media from stories
- Authentication with 2fa

What we will add:
- Disable comments on posts
- Tag accounts on posts
- Add a location
- Display comments on posts

All previous actions (like, boost comment, pagination, mute, block, etc.) have been moved to the new API.

Some of my servers will be turning 10 years old soon, might not use them anymore but I can't just get rid of them.

Long may you run Abkco and Rubbersoul.

I've wound up taking lots of screenies in #minecraft ..
so now I've made a #pixelfed collection of them.

I promise I'll post other stuff next time 😂 📷

Text only posts federate, just a few things to finish before they are ready!

Release time!

This one adds the ability to set image descriptions (good practice for accessibility reasons, but also handy to comment on each photo), and there are translation improvements (plurals are now supported, so languages like Russian with more nuanced plurals can translate things correctly).

Thank you for the crash reports, a regression caused by a change in the last release was fixed!

#Pixelfed is still a big work in progress because we are switching the API.
You will be able to connect with 2fa, have access to stories, have dedicated features such enable or not comments to your posts, tag accounts, add locations, display and add comments...

It’s the pixelated icons for me, scammers should be using svg icons!!

Snowpiercer season 2 starts tomorrow, can't wait 😁

Avatars from remote instances now fetched and stored on S3!

This was one of the last things to do before releasing v0.10.10.

Database backup job was causing a brief daily outage due to table locking. Will be shipping a fix for this in v0.10.10 lol

Good Morning!

Added Blurhash support to timelines last night, much better UX especially when using cloud storage + uncached media!

Giving away all my good ideas. But then again, everything I've built has relied on other people giving away theirs.

I've said @spritelyproject is a "research lab" for the fediverse; if we manage to inspire implementations that are more successful elsewhere, that's success.
