I never know what to toot over here. On Twitter I've generally seen something (on Twitter) that provokes me so I tweet or subtweet about it.

the tactility of the board game is half the enjoyment

trying to get back into chess but playing the computer is no fun

there's some wild masto instances out there

I could do the whole Twitter bridging thing but that's annoying

I'm gonna try and use this more, I put it on my bookmarks bar so I remember it exists.

Wider columns on here on the web would be 👌

Went and got an app for this, Mast on iOS. Pretty nice 👌🏻

Is this where all the FOSS people are since G+ is dead?

🤙 ayyy I'm back (until I forget about using this again)

The overuse of hamburger menus (or overflow menus) is still the worst and Firefox has essentially two (three if you count the overflow menu in the URL bar). Two vague icons in the toolbar that both serve as to represent menus that are catch-alls for a bunch of things.

How everyone got away with the hamburger is beyond me. It's not simplification of the UI it's complication. Simplification would be paring down unnecessary function so you have no need for overflow menus.

I definitely think the Mastodon columns should be wider (for both writing and reading toots), especially when toots make use of the full 500 character limit. IMO, it would make these large blocks of text appear more balanced instead of cramped and stretched.

Bridging Twitter and Mastodon so your tweets show up here is not "using Mastodon".

If you're using Linux and engaged in development processes or on IRC channels and are familiar with the names of things and what different distros (or even what "distros" are) are and the nuances between desktop environments, then I'm definitely not designing anything with you in mind. You're already here.

It'd be great if you could switch instances but take all your toots, follows and followers with you. I'd more inclined to move to another instance to lessen the server load on this main one if I didn't have to start over.

‪Things you never see: projects putting up developers’ code for vote by the public/community. “Hey guys, which of these code blocks do you like best?” It irks me that it’s done to designers because a) it shows a disregard for their expertise and b) it’s no way to make decisions.‬

I stagger the screen positions of dual-monitor setup in GNOME so I can trigger the Shell hotcorner on both displays. 🤓

(It's also nice because my monitors are at different heights irl)
