Question naïve : c'est quoi le bail avec tout le monde en train de parler de Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès ? Pourquoi on parle de lui à part que les plateaux télés s'enthousiasment pour de la merde ?

@will_stochastique Pour le bail : hier la police à annoncé à toute la presse son arrestation à Glasgow, ce matin, elle annonce d'un air penaud que bah, en fait, non, c'était pas lui, juste un péquin lambda.

Et sinon, une belle illustration de la façon dont tout le monde se laisse embarquer sur les faits divers malsains, tout simplement, y compris dans des milieux plutôt habituellement critiques du traitement médiatique des faits divers. :-|

@will_stochastique La gueule d'une partie de mon flux twitter depuis hier, entre ceux qui spéculent et les indécents qui se lancent dans des concours de vannes sur le sujet, c'est 🤢

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.
