About #Trunk: a still fairly recent project to help people (especially newbies) populate their home timelines with people who have common interests and "volunteered as tribute"!

Fediverse, what's your fav book ever, and what's the last one you read that you loved?

I'm regrettably no longer able to offer my RSS to ActivityPub converter to the general public. This is because:

- it's wildly popular and my hosting costs keep going up for it
- it's been getting used for more and more purposes I'm uncomfortable with, which I've tried to mitigate but new ones keep popping up

I'll be releasing a new version soon that will let admins allow only people with permissions (either a user/password or a Mastodon account) to create new feeds.

Hey, who wants to run in the #StickersOlympics and show off the best of what’s on their beloved laptops / notepads / etc?

Lemme start with a double layer of sass (works as a great a**hole deterrent!). With some @stephaniewalter Jen Bartel, @LaQuadrature @commonfutures Night Call, MiXiT, @Framasoft Laurence Vagner, N26, Hackstock...

Hey I've been wondering for a while what the asterisks and plus signs (or lack thereof) over at https://fediverse.network/pleroma mean.

Typically, and by standard convention, when there are asterisks and other types of note/exception flags like that, one puts those symbols at the bottom (or top) of the page or document, which explains what those symbols denote - there's no such explanation of what these symbols mean at Fediverse.Network though.

Can someone please explain (if anyone knows) what those asterisks and plus signs and the lack thereof denote?

I've included a graphic (screenie) of the page showing how those symbols are being used, but without any explanation as to what that indicates.

Thanks!

I don't know if this is a donation link per se ( I've heard it's an option on the site but I haven't found it)
But I have two teespring store fronts. Profit goes to bills, and when those are paid I can worry more about my novel projects!

teespring.com/stores/shades-of <- political minded

teespring.com/stores/gryphons- <- fun/arty minded

@maloki I write a blog about the fediverse and the latest developments of the platforms in it. It's not always up to date, and I have a huge backlog, but We Distribute is a labor of love. It's also pretty much the only ongoing news publication entirely made for the fediverse.

Mastodon.host

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
