A hotkey to clear notifications would be great. I do this every morning so that only that day's notifications are shown. I don't care about older ones.

Alternatively, an option to only show today's notifications.

Please consider adjusting!

1) A server policy to recognize the inherent human dignity of every person.

Reason: history shows labels (e.g. homophobia) are misused, often thrown around recklessly against those of opposing political or religious beliefs.

2) through 4)

Overkill as a rule for startup and other small instances. Unenforceable. Better: require instances to *state* their policy for administration, backup and shutdown notice.

Agree mostly with your comment, however...

People are not so 1-dimensional. Someone could be many things that you find admirable as well as some you don't. If they support the project and their contributions are helpful then great.

I think it is unwise for Mastodon as a project to take positions against any lawful use. It's unnecessary and counterproductive. I find lots of instances and users distasteful, so I didn't join those instances and don't follow those people. My choice.

Just updated keybase and see several more Mastodon instances were added.

We can not stress enough the importance of allowing ANY / ALL / EVERY Mastodon instance to be supported.

I am hoping that the Mastodon list is completely removed and you just prompt for the user's mastodon profile. I am not really clear why that isn't already the case.

OK -- as long as the admin can control (at least disable) it.

Better -- some means for the admin to modify the text with their own community specific HTML message.

Yea, wait until you are older to see just how bad that gets...

Not really. The problem is Twitter (and most social networks) deciding for their users what they may see and what they may not see.

If a service is promoted as for general use, then that should not be the case. True/false, hate/facts, etc. are not universally agreed. Censoring is an attempt to force a viewpoint.

If Twitter, Facebook, et al wanted to offer opt-in features to allow users to choose their censoring suggestions that would be fine. To force it unilaterally is not. IMHO


The order appears to be newest to oldest. It would be nice to offer alphabetical sort too. That would make it easier to check for someone. (Alternatively, search but that feels like overkill.)

One thing that I liked immediately was the clear notifications button.

I do this every morning on the web interface but it takes many clicks, making it a hassle.

A solution to this could be a hotkey sequence, e.g. "cn".

Very nice introductory video, covering *a lot* of ground, but quickly and in a manner that is not overwhelming. Good work!

The article is terrible. She seems to trash Mastodon because it is not agenda driven in line with her viewpoints.

She could make such an instance, but that would apparently not be enough. All these instances out there without anyone controlling the message... the horror.

Please ignore her. Thank you @Gargron for your tireless work on this project. It is appreciated.

It's $5/mo for 1TB and no download costs. The price is prorated after the first TB.

My instance is about the same size as yours. I just moved from S3 to Wasabi.
