#FollowMonday, because I won't remember to make it a #FollowFriday

All of you should be following @ak_ephemera for the thousands of beautiful cat photos. Scroll through the account when you feel bad, it's soothing.

I continue to be amazed by how well #DS9 told the story of a massive inter-quadrant war while barely ever showing any of it on screen.

"In The Pale Moonlight" was the epitome of that: galaxy-shaking events, told with... I think ONE shot of a spaceship? It's mostly people in rooms, talking passionately. I know it's for budget reasons, but it really works -- it keeps the focus on how the war affects people, and how people affect the war, not how many cool spaceships they can blow up.

Remember when Dax told Lady Sirella "your 23rd maternal grandmother is technically a concubine not an imperial wife" --- phew.

That moment when you realise #DoctorWho "The Hand of Fear" is about a sexy trans alien lady made of crystals and therefore belongs in the same canon as #StevenUniverse. There's one gem shard that should have stayed bubbled.

Eldrad must live!

Polyamory should be part of LGBT+

Polyamory is as much of a choice for me as being pan, anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about and probably should not speak on polyamory.

Some people might whine that it will include straight people, but guess what: they're already here, in the form of straight trans people, not to mention straight ace/aro people (who btw do not deserve to be gatekept out thank you).

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.
