Happy New Year 🥳

We are preparing to release the next version that includes several new features and improvements.

The mobile app is almost ready for primetime, and we'll be shipping the Android version first (via @fdroidorg)!

PS - We have been working on text-only posts support 😉

The new Pixelfed website is much nicer and will include a federated forum, new documentation site, translation platform and improved instance picker.

It was a lot of work to built everything from scratch, but we'll be able to provide a better experience across the Pixelfed ecosystem for admins, developers and users!

Available soon.

Decided to ship the android version first, take that instagram.

network construction, uspol adjacent, hyperbrief commentary 

Briefly:
- Make game rules you can survive when it isn't "your turn"
- The alt-right already joined the fediverse and then left conf.tube/videos/watch/d8c8ed6
- Centralized social networks are playing a game nobody can win politically
- But the fediverse's present anti-abuse tooling probably won't scale to a larger incursion
- A better path forward: gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/bl

I'm just thinking about this blog post I wrote in 2018. Because even when Twitter makes a good decision, the first sentence comes to mind: Why does the entire world have to wait on the CEO of one US company to make a decision?

I need help from someone who hosts a instance: I need some help to make the plugin compatible.

Good Morning! Starting a new job today 😊

Pixelfed.social 55 minute outage yesterday was caused by low disk space, which we mitigated by moving to a larger server.

Our automated backup service triggered dangerously low disk space which caused other services to fail, had we used S3 for media this would not have happened.

I am prioritizing cloud storage support and it should be released later today.

Verified accounts could work in a local context, especially considering we use usernames and not display names everywhere.

Each instance could set its own criteria for getting verified or disable this. Not sure if I will proceed, what do you think?

Pixelfed now tracks status views for the new discover algorithm (available soon).

We just store the status_id & profile_id so we can display posts you haven't seen yet on Discover.
