Good afternoon Folks,
With the flu hitting me hard, I have to call it a day. If anyone of you is interested to try Tuskr, please let me know.
I'm not ready to just dump the url here just yet as I know it is not a finished product but I know some of you will give me useful feedback so I can make it better and eventually just release it to the world.
Please note that as I previously said, you can't actually login to any instance, favourite or boost. You can only read!
1) A free and open social media system that can be distributed across many instances, creating a freer, more versatile and more eclectic social media network
2) I would personally like to see @Gargron and Mastodon embrace a commercial/FOSS hybrid. Make Mastodon.social commercial to fuel its growth, keep the software FOSS so others can build on the code and freely create their own instances.
3) Something new is coming, so keep your eyes and ears open!
Fun things admins could inflict upon naughty users, if #Mastodev did punishments:
1) Make their posts not federate.
2) Make their posts unboostable.
3) Delay all their posts by 12 hours.
4) Replace their avatar with a dunce icon.
5) Forbid all posts not containing the #imsorry hashtag.
All punishments would have built-in time limits. 🤡 👮 😆
Just updated @translator (email@example.com) with a new feature! It can now be used to translate existing statuses.
* Probably want to set the visibility on this to "Direct"
* Make sure to use firstname.lastname@example.org as opposed to the @translator on your local instance
* List of language codes and additional instructions here: https://goo.gl/t8h2YS
I could finally implement the translation feature!
Still some work to do...it doesn't seem to work with toots including hashtags....working on it!
New version of 11t released for android. Has an improved (I think) look for timelines, but mostly focuses on a simpler way to connect to Mastodon.
You now have to agree to a few things about privacy and (NSFW) content, and you can report content that is outside of these rules.
Next version will have user blocking and user muting, hopefully I can then submit to Apple again and get everyone on the same version.
Having an issue with browser caching and can't find an issue in github, is this already known?
1. Load mastodon and wait till the timeline updates with a new post.
2. click on link in profile description for hashtag on other mastodon instance  -> loads in same tab
3. hit "back" button in browser, timeline reloads in initial state, without the posts that where loaded after initial page load
 eg., https://octodon.social/tags/perl
1. It means a new tool to communicate and share ideas with people around the world;
2. I think Mastodon should be a contrasting social network, avoiding fan clubs(the reason I believe TW is down now) dedicated principally to share ideas;
3. I never spoke about it yet, just want to see how far I go without it. I only know one person from other social networkings here.
