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!

- Make game rules you can survive when it isn't "your turn"
- The alt-right already joined the fediverse and then left https://conf.tube/videos/watch/d8c8ed69-79f0-4987-bafe-84c01f38f966
- 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

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?
Just wrapped up my first week at my new job, it went great! Now I’ll be spending a few hours on #pixeldev 😎

PixelDroid 1.0 alpha7 - https://apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid/index/apk/com.h.pixeldroid
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. #pixeldev
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. #pixeldev
