Experimenting with a new ComposeUI option to limit federation per-post.

Never would have thought of this, credit to @trwnh for suggesting this!

The wording and placement might change, but I think giving people more control over federation is important and aligns with our goals.

You can "follow" hashtags on Pixelfed and see them in your timeline.

It's an interesting way to discover new content in your home timeline.

Though I wonder if people would prefer if it showed one post per account, or keep it the way it is and show the latest posts with that hashtag. What do you think?

Federating :pixelfed: licenses would be neat, don't think any other implementation does this yet.

I feel like spam has been increasing on the as of recent.

This is causing some backlogged queues as processes federated deletes in the same queue as other activities.

Thinking of moving Deletes to a separate queue, should reduce the federation lag in larger :pixelfed: instances.

The network timeline has been improved, it now loads faster than home + public timelines.

Working on reducing load times from other timelines next!

Added a "Mark as Spammer" moderation tool to .

One click to remove spam and prevent it from appearing on public timelines!

Updated the join link on pixelfed.org to point to fedidb.org/software/pixelfed until the new instance picker is ready.

I'm working on a new instance picker that will be easier to use and filter instances based on interests.

Good Morning :blobcatcoffee:

FundOSS is matching OpenCollective donations for today, please donate if you can! 😁


Added Rules to pixelfed like mastodon has, not for mobile apps but for .

My goal is to eventually use FediDB for 's instance picker, and every other listed project will have one too!

I have big plans for FediDB aside from ActivityPub testing πŸ˜‰

I feel incredibly blessed that Pixelfed has grown so much over the past year.

Total users, posts and active users have doubled, and our project is among the top 5 most popular.

Though we haven’t had our viral moment like Mastodon or PeerTube, I’m confident that when we do, we’ll be ready.

I look forward to the next 3 years and beyond! 😁

Asked some friends to use Pixelfed, they didn't know who to follow.

Empty timelines is not good for onboarding or new user experience.

Adding Suggested Posts to an empty timeline will encourage users to discover and engage with content without having to follow someone.

The new Home Timeline will keep track of what posts you've seen to show you posts you haven't seen.

When you reach the end, you can browse Suggested Posts or View Older Posts!

Good Morning!

Discovered a spammer had sent hundreds of DMs on pixelfed.social to local users.

Since we filter out DMs from accounts you don't follow, no notifications were sent and impacted very few users.

The spam detection system works great, over 1600 posts have been caught and prevented from appearing on timelines (on pixelfed.social)!

Sometimes the spammer will appeal, which means they are adapting to our new measures πŸ˜„

Built a linktree like service for the fediverse.

The beta will be rolling out later this week for pixelfed users, will open up for everyone in a few weeks.

Built a Linktree clone tonight as a demo app for the pixelfed api, was a lot of fun 😁
