reading a bunch of comments about Mastodon on tech news sites about how it "will never succeed" or will go extinct. Problem is, that defines Mastodon's success in the metrics of Silicon Valley VC. The point of Mastodon does not appear to be a growth -> exit -> brand vehicle strategy that Twitter has been struggling with.

I'm having a good time here. Isn't that success enough?

the social network experience should strive to be maximally intimidating, like piloting a jet. more buttons, and possibly a display that wraps around your head. many flashing lights, several of which signal imminent death

If you're an admin of a large mastodon instance please DM Toot or bird site chirp at me. I'm starting a place to share admin tools and scripts, as well as discuss experimental mastodon custom server features, this includes themes/CSS to infosec related experiments in PGP Tooting and Signed profiles

while i want to celebrate the increasing popularity of, it's pretty sad and rude to see people talking about being the "first ones here", "getting in on the ground floor", even debating what to call users of

we already did that, we already had a culture, and goddamn it we're called tooties

the issue is that with so many people here we might hit a point where just eugen moderating is unsustainable. trying to do algorithmic moderation is a mistake, and you can only do so much with tech solutions. getting more federation will help a lot and making our spaces hostile to antags will go a long way to reducing the need for human moderators. maybe hard caps on instance and/or invites?

i do hope eugen decides to hire on some moderators, even unpaid

Hey everyone, I'm a recently unemployed junior developer. Please help me jumpstart my career and find a job. Thanks!

did a bunch of white cis (and maybe het) men grousing about rules & expectations suddenly appear on this instance, en masse? if so, there are so many other instances where you can set up your place. is one such spot. you can even make your own.

this instance,, is dominantly queer and trans folk, and i get the sense we'd like to keep it that way :thumbsup_tone3:

oh also infosec folks, unless you're here for the furry and the gay, please find or make your own instance, this one is being overcrowded, thx

Hi awoo.spacers-

If someone has a strobing avatar, please report the account to me if it's visible here. I will silence them so they cannot show up in notifications and the PTL.

For others: if you were silenced for this and wish to ask for the ability to interact with again, make sure you don't use a strobing avatar again, and please message me over at @vahnj since I won't get it here.

Cool Mom boosted

hey infosec ppl new to, please try to remember that the queer furry weirdos were actually here before you.

Please don't post channer slang or slurs or pepes on the PTL. This is a shared home.

If y'all could do me an amazing kindness and boost this link, it would be a life saver.

I am in need of a lot of medical treatment I can't afford. If you have a spare $1 and enjoy my work, please consider supporting!

Thank you so much. 😻

Throwing it out there again - I just spun up a brand-new instance with a fairly beefy dedi behind it.

Registrations are open, don't make me regret that. :P

new users:

Things you wanna know:

"Local timeline" means only
"Federated timeline" means Mastodon and any site it talks to (think wide world/public)

Android app = Tusky
IOS app = Amaroq

CW means content warning. This will hide your toot. Good for spoilers and things like that.

Rules here:
