I've created a for Mastodon (and works with ) to make columns a bit and shows full images/thumbnails rather than the fixed cropped you get by default.

Install the extension in ( and then install my User Style from here:

This week's #ff list

@emsenn is handwriting a website from scratch in an interesting way

@leonivek made a Stylus theme that widens Mastodon's columns & handles images better:

@LibertyPaulM posts tech news (much like me, but without getting distracted by pooptoots!)

@Taweret has excellent opinions on Star Trek

@starbreaker is a novelist/techie that recently moved instances

@cefiar makes great retro hardware suggestions

@rowens is friendly & helps new programmers

New v1.5.2 of my Full Image Preview and Wider Columns . This fixes the number of images per row in a toot user setting that was no longer working. You may need to remove the userstyle first before installing it again.

Don't forget to click Customize Settings if you want to customize your style before installing.

Have you installed Privacy Badger by the Electronic Frontier Foundation? Privacy Badger automatically learns to invisible .

I was going to announce it a bit later and more properly, but Mastodon received a $70k grant from Samsung NEXT through OpenCollective. I intend to make it available to those who contribute to the project, and have already notified some of the most regular contributors. The way OpenCollective works is that anyone can submit an expense and all transactions are listed transparently. It also holds the money.

As for myself, I intend to continue using Patreon for my own wage/costs.
