We're exploring indieweb and other ways to share your content too!

He's trying to hide his excitement for the official pixelfed mobile app!

If you'd like to participate in our mobile app alpha, make sure you follow this account and boost this post.

We'll be inviting a few people at random (that follow us and boosted this post) to test out the app before anyone else!

Group moderation is the achilles heel of federated groups across all implementations in our opinion.

We're setting a pretty high standard, and we think it's worth the wait.

It's not who did it first, it's who did it right.

Groups will be rolling out to select :pixelfed: instances next week, and will be available for all pixelfed instances after we conclude federation compatibility testing!

Why did we suddenly add custom content warnings?

No reason, not like it was influenced by an official mobile app or anything 😉 🫣

Custom content warnings/spoiler text is now supported across our web UI, mobile apis and federation activities!

First impressions are everything!

We're redesigning instance landing pages, some highlights include:

✨ Modern design
⚡ Feature overview
✨ Customizable text fields
⚡ About page w/ custom html
✨ Improved Onboarding
⚡ Clearer instance rules

We want your feedback, admins please let us know what you want or would like to see!

Boosts appreciated!

Direct Messages still use the old UI, we've been working on a Metro 2.0 design optimized for both desktop or mobile browsers and light or dark mode!

Also we included a privacy warning similar to Mastodon!

We're looking into encrypted direct messages and look forward to working with other projects on this important endeavour!

Did you know you can search & interact with text-only posts from mastodon?

Though we remain photo focused, being able to follow and interact with non-photo formats is important to us!

Accessibility is important, and often taken for granted by those who don't depend on it.

That's why we added the option to require every photo you post to contain an alt-text description before it can be posted!

We're working to enforce this on 3rd party/mobile apps too.
