I guess its finally time for an #introduction.
I am Eurritimia, or just Eurritz / Ritz for friends, and I'm your local #pineapple 🍍. I like Pokémon, The Sims, drawing, pineapples, pizza, making games and chiptune music. Also I'm aromantic asexual agender and I have a queerplatonic relationship with a person who is not here on Mastodon unfortunately.
If there's a need for 🍍, you can mention me - btw I don't eat pineapples at all, nor even on pizza but I don't condemn who does it.
ICANN granted Amazon.com the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.
Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.

cis transhumanists be like:
hey, "human" is an arbitrary and limiting constraint, and we should transcend it
now *gender* on the other hand...
Dice appreciation toot Show more
People sometimes joke that I hoard dice.
And to be fair, I have a lot of them.
But every time I meet someone who is interested in #DnD but has never played, I give them a set of dice.
What better way to start a new adventure than with an unexpected gift?
Behold: my dice hoard.
The Modern Trap of Turning Hobbies Into Hustles, also known as the "Hooo you should sell that on Etsy" syndrom (wink @email@example.com)
I had a lot of people asking me to sell my foxy stickers on Etsy as well, nope, I prefer to offer them :)

florence-masto: seeking instance admin feedback Show more
hello, all! as a prerequisite to getting Florence-Masto released we're interested in figuring out how instance admins manage their instances, and what the best way of doing releases is.
how do you usually find out about releases, and what would be ideal for you? do you simply follow the official account on .social, do you subscribe to GitHub releases, etc.? is there a way that things aren't announced currently that you'd prefer, like a mailing list? anything about the current changelog you might want to change?
if you're a system admin who hosts Mastodon, how do you do so? do you use Docker or Vagrant images, or do you install it manually? if you don't use a pre-built image, what OS/software do you use? are there any particular guides that you find helpful for installing/updating?
basically, I'd love to know what people are interested in and what the best place to focus on would be.
mastodon ui gripes again Show more
are you kidding me DMs really still make it look like the person you sent to was the person who wrote your messages? jfc
Mastodon doesn't go out of its way to make life easy for moderators. Wish I could:
- Reply directly to involved parties through the admin UI
- Tell whether a local user had forwarded the message to another instance's admin
- See the another instance's admin's address without having to dig around on that instance's UI
- Ideally, have inline chats with the other admin
- Automatically send resolution notes to the reporter
Right now there's so. much. manual work in trying to respond to reports.
