I can't even read whatever I just boosted but it has a photo of a nice crossing stripe

Gaining townie points as I begin to recognize randos in ward 4 of StP from various establishments, almost like I grew up here

Love how the train message about boarding with bicycles at the doors near to the rack exists and there's none telling people to maybe not stand right inside the bike rack and not stand in the doors when people are boarding/exiting generally

Lots of leg work went into this assessment of opponents to the Minneapolis 2040 comprehensive plan. Sold work, @oloigheruosne !

I don't have nearly enough piano in my life. I've been practicing on and off since 7:30 tonight, which is probably 3 hours total with all the breaks. Puts my mind in a good place, and I'm glad i've been on a piano practice kick this past month.

Many people have praised "Neighbors for More Neighbors" as a clever name. But did you know the inspiration for that name comes from a failed parody of a now-defunct Lisa Bender hate page?

Love when the train sign alternates between due and 9 minutes every few seconds and the next is listed as coming in a half hour. Oh and there are tons of bees swarming this stop 👻

What sets 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 account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your 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:

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