Average users per instance according to :

Mastodon - 675
Pixelfed - 222
Pleroma - 35
PeerTube - 159
Lemmy - 648

Mastodon, Pixelfed, Pleroma, PeerTube and Lemmy are the only projects that have at least one instance with over 10k users.

Only Mastodon has more than one instance with more than 10k users, according to FediDB.

No surprise that Mastodon has the most new instances in the past month according to

Fun fact: I wrote a twitter alternative before I started Pixelfed.

I didn't account for remote profiles, and when I attempted to implement ActivityPub I realized how much work it would be to refactor the code. I was so mad at myself, I abandoned it.

I started Pixelfed a month later to try again, and that is why I was so hesitant on releasing federation support lol.

Really hope Drake drops CLB on the same day as Kanyes Donda album, next Friday πŸ˜‚

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.

@Lapineige Oh I see, thanks for the feedback! Will just keep it as it is, chronological :)

@idanoo It only will show public posts containing that hashtag, what I meant was should it limit it to one post per account or just show the latest posts regardless of if its from the same account.

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?

The best focus group I've found is random drunk people at a party.

Brutally honest about what they like/dislike, and you get all kinds of different perspectives.

@geotechland Haha, I wish! AR filters would be so cool though

@msh Yeah I get that, I use the local timeline a lot on my instance for moderation purposes.

Hiding the advanced stuff like that is a brilliant idea!
