All that said yesterday, I'm not one to hold a grudge for very long. And I'm willing to forgive and move on.
@Gargron said one thing to him, and I read another to me.
It happens, and I'm not above fault, neither is he.
It would however require us both to be willing to ask for forgiveness. And work something out that would be sustainable for the project.
And here we are, I have another #Mastodon announcement to make. I guess my last...
I’m sorry that I deceived you, but I didn’t know it at the time.
Due to a misunderstanding, somewhere along the way, the one month contract was just that, one month only. I had interpreted it as “I’m not sure if I can make a new contract with the same terms, because there’s not enough money right now, but let’s start with one month and take it from there.”
If you want to support me personally, for long-term sustainable work with Mastodon (in case Gargron doesn't want to hire me or can't keep me hired, or I can't work enough to warrant being hired), consider supporting me directly on #Patreon or #Liberapay.
I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of questions. Some of you wont even know what I’m back from/for?
I’m back as Project Manager for #Mastodon.
I’m back from being sick, too sick to function. I ended up getting a month and a half of sick-leave, but it took me a while to actually get there. And that, together with some other stuff, has brought me back, on top of the world (that's how I feel)
While elekk is sleeping I'm just going to drop this beauty here!
The digital tabletop bundle is live on #HumbleBundle
It includes games like Armello, Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game, and Pathfinder Adventures!
Reminder: using this partner link supports me and a charity!
That was fast.
Wdym, no elekk is not sleeping.
There's currently a Mega Indie Week sale on #HumbleBundle
You can pick up games like Hellblade, Frostpunk, Darkest Dungeon, all of which I'd recommend!
Checking it out via my link does help me, even if you don't buy anything today. And if you do buy something, a little bit goes our way!
Thank you for your consideration!
(boosts also help a lot! 💞)
Hello, everyone! If you've been following @maloki for updates on the ongoing effort to #ForkTogether, then you may be happy to know that we had our first meeting on Saturday and are still planning out governance and infrastructure before the project "officially" starts.
If you're looking to follow the progress of the fork, or you're looking to get involved, follow here for updates!
Hello, everyone! A quick on the upcoming meeting for the fork.
The meeting will take place tomorrow (Sunday, 8th July) at 7 PM UTC.
The meeting will be done via Discord. This is currently the most accessible option for now, although we are planning to move to another system like Matrix later. You can join the Discord here: https://discord.gg/T2BeU2Q
But do we really have enough coders? According to the survey, as well as people who reached out in person, yes, yes we do.
We have 50 people who say they can contribute with code. 20+ people who can contribute with Governance of software of organization. Others want to help with experience, money, emotional support, resources. (hover photo!)
Some of the "other:" responses were: Testing, Sysadmin, Code Review, Copywriting, Mentoring new contributors, Security/Penetration testing.
Actually over 100 people (109 responses to the survey) wanted to #ForkOffTogether. And all in all we had 171
To put that in perspective of the 470 contributors that #Mastodon has had on the GitHub repo, I feel like we have a solid base to go from here.
Some of the comments even suggested that "No I don't want to, but we need to", explaining why they ticked No.
First Order Of Business: Laurelai, Maloki and PaulFerence are rejecting any direct involvement in management, interim-committee, or the committee of the ForkOffTogether initiative in its first FULL year.
This should offer a good time frame to build the governance that You folx want for this w/o us.
The wording of this can of course still be adjusted, to be even more clear and strong.
But the point we're trying to make clear is that we do not want to be nominated, nor accept any roles in this management/committee.
We just want to help you all to kick this off.
#ForkOffTogether update #4
A small survey about what makes a good CoC for you is now out!
As well as info about what kind of meeting I want to invite everyone to:
TL;DR #ForkOffTogether Update #3
We are only trying to use the survey to invite everyone to a meeting, to start up an organization of the meeting's choice.
Another survey, together with more information, is coming out tomorrow to help us rough draft one of the documents we will suggest at the meeting.
Everyone will get a vote.
