Some of you asked me if I had a Patreon: it’s now the case! 😄

The received funds will be mainly used to cover hosting costs and illustrators’ commissions for nice visuals for the software I’m developing. 😉

Please consider the 1$ membership, as having a lot of small donators would be a nice demonstration of your interest and support. 🙂

I have a surprise for you all. 😏
I've committed someone to create a proper logo for .

I didn't go the "contest" way because it leads to make people work for free. So I found someone that has a nice portfolio and paid upfront.

He just sent me the result, I'm waiting for the final files but... here it is! 😀

"We think of censorship as suppression of information, but censorship is also the active promotion of certain kinds of stories that will resonate with the people."

Damn this article is good.

As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.

Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.

While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.

Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!

1.1.5 is out! 🙂

It's just a small fix to handle some replies (coming from some instances) not providing mentions anymore. Sengi will automatically recreate them at the start of the reply so that it can make sense again.

users, the last version (2.4.1) fixed a problematic regression and is now fully compatible with . 🎉

Huge thanks to @lanodan for fixing it. 🙂

1.1.4 is out! 🎉

It's a small fix but the bug it crushes is a huge relief for me. For a very long time Sengi could sometime mess up the user's handle when replying to people.
And it was not reproductible. And very rare. Maybe you never seen this bug but if you had, I finally found out how to reproduce it and it has been fixed! 😄

I created a #Discord server to provide current development insights for #Sengi #BirdsiteLIVE and other tools! 🙂

Feel free to come by and say "hi!". 😄

Also, if you have issues, ideas, etc, this is the place you can also come and share/get support/etc.

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.

1.1.3 is out but it's just a CICD fix, so that the binaries are available again on the project page. 😉

Thanks to @alejandrobdn for letting me know about the issue! 🙂

1.1.2 is out. 🙂
It's just a (very) minor fix for polls statistics. 😉

1.1.1 is out!
It's just a fix to improve polls (mastodon's users should see less discrepancies with MastoUI) and some (edge cases) fixes for boosting / favoriting / bookmarking statuses. 😉

users, there is an issue with the last release (2.3.0) so if possible don't migrate to this version or it will break a lot of functionalities in .
I've already opened an issue on the Pleroma repo, let's hope it will be fixed in the next patch/update.

It's time to stress a bit more the test instance! 😎

Please feel free to follow many accounts on it so that I could have an idea of how the code and server behave on higher loads.

The instance is available here: beta.birdsite.live but please keep in mind that it's a temporary one.

Boosts will be highly appreciated. 😉

1.0.3 is out! 🙂

It's a small fix to prevent CW to display un-encoded HTML (no security issue here, just usability).
Thanks to @Novimatrem for letting me know about this issue!

Great news everyone! The dev will resume development of his projects and now has some help!
