Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

"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."

Ya know what the coolest thing about the fediverse? Being able to have a conversation with the actual people who create apps that are making the world a better place both online and offline.
Being able to just hit up people on like @Gargron and @dansup. Creators of @Mastodon and @pixelfed. And they actually respond to your questions or concerns like a human being and not some damn giant corporation only interested in your money.
Thats what is the coolest!

PSA: I have identified a bug affecting federation for instances that have COSTARS enabled. The bug prevents valid statuses from being stored due to an incorrect variable.

A fix will be shipped ASAP.

v0.10.x will be the last version of Pixelfed that ships with pre-compiled assets.

Instance admins will need to compile the assets during deployment using webpack/npm.

Someone stole my swingline and left this old dollar store stapler. Discusting

I'm not a fan of shilling myself but I'm in a situation now where I have to do so.

The person I was living with just got arrested, I don't start my job until Friday, and I need to start saving some money and looking for apartments in NWA else I'm stuck in a tiny room at a family member's house with most of my stuff sitting in boxes.

If you can spare any cash I'd highly appreciate it, will go towards keeping up, helping me find a place, etc.

Thank you all <3

Hey, listen.

I've been unemployed for the last few months, recovering from intense burnout. I'm in the process of looking for jobs, but realistically, I'm very close to being broke.

I'm trying my best to live lean and come up with some kind of income...but to be honest, I need help. I've got only 400 bucks to my name right now, and bills are going to cause major damage.

I'm trying to work my way up to $1210 to cover rent after the next month. While I don't at all expect that kind of money to just be handed to me, I'm not confident that I'm going to be able to get a job in time to cover it.

My biggest costs right now are servers. I'm running We Distribute and VidCommons entirely out of pocket with no donations. This probably is why neither have been updated very frequently in recent months, but if they're to continue operation, I need at least 80 bucks to cover it. If I can't, both of those projects will be on ice for a while, with their sites taken down.

If anyone would like to help me financially during this trying time, here's some links for donations. I hate having to do this, but I'm trying to survive.
