@dansup It wont go down, I can promise that, but I also don't have time to work on it, since a long time ago. The best thing that could happen is that I could transfer it to someone else, but I'm also happy for people to contribute and I run it. The worst is if no one wants to do either :P
Twitter is rolling out Super Follow, a paid subscription service.
Looks like https://the-federation.info needs new maintainers!
I hope it doesn't go down like fediverse.network and fediverse.space. Maybe I should build one for Pixelfed 🤔
Many articles about the Australia-Facebook dispute noted that a large number of people rely on Facebook as their primary news and information portal. Because I think that relying on a big tech entity that treats users as products for advertisers as a primary news source is unwise - I suggest RSS as an alternative in my post.
Tusky 14 is out now!

- Timed mutes (for supported servers).
- Notification 🔔 for specific users posting, ring the bell icon on their profile (Mastodon 3.3.0 feature).

(5/6) Pixelfed cannot be a better and ethical alternative if it ignores the gamification and FOMO dark patterns found on popular platforms.
(4/6) I've observed that most trending posts on pixelfed.social belong to a small group of accounts with many followers, making it harder for other users to appear on trending.
(3/6) When I designed the Trending feature, I did not consider the implications of ranking content by like counts.
(2/6) They find themselves constantly checking like counts and trying to get on the discover trending page by engaging in like-for-like behaviour that is prevalent on other platforms like Instagram.
