@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

Looks like 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 ๐Ÿค”

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.


@z428 @pixelfed Hmm, thats not good. Are you using a shared IP or proxy? What types of interactions are causing the 429 errors (ie: liking posts, composing new posts)?

(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.

(1/6) Was recently contacted by someone who mentioned the trending feature has changed the way they use Pixelfed.

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.

Also been working on the mobile app, new Pixelfed.org, FediDB, forum, instance picker, translation platform and linktree clone.

The Pixelfed ecosystem is about to get a whole lot bigger!

I started the installer and UIKit back in 2019 and just now are they almost ready ๐Ÿ˜…
