I appreciate the optimism, guys, but I'm fairly confident it's going to be Charles.
My main selling point to try and bring my blind friends to Mastodon from Twitter is people using alt text. I know I never claimed everyone did it all the time, but still, please don't make me look like a liar! #AltText
I don't know who needs to see this but this is my all time favourite photo of my cat.
Something came in the mail today. I can only draw one conclusion.
I’ve gotten one crypto spam tag on #Mastodon this morning, and it was already removed before I clicked the notification.
Having real people that care running your community makes a difference. Thanks for holding it down @Gargron and team! 🙏
We're aware of the spam attack hitting mastodon.social right now and our full moderation and DevOps teams are on the case mitigating any way we can (incl. switching to approval-mode registrations)
Prior to Mastodon and the fediverse if you wanted to create a real and viable social media platform it would cost you millions.
Mastodon being well developed product that it is (thanks to @Gargron ) really and truly gives news orgs the power to run their own social site for hundreds to thousands of dollars, not millions.
It's six months exactly since I first signed up properly to Mastodon (well, I had set up an account on one of the big instances earlier and then noped out almost immediately), and I have to say it's been the most fun I've had on the internet for a really long time. I've semi-drifted away from most other places, but I really like it here, and I hope it continues.
Thank you all for being your interesting, silly, thoughtful, entertaining, wonderful selves and making this place what it is.
