Just as easily as folks step away from the news to to get a break from certain topics, it is very easy to do the same on the fedi. I encourage folks to do this. It’s just good to step away.

But it feels like folks are demanding CWs with only certain topics in an effort to sanitize certain experiences from the fedi so they can maintain their fantasy of being ‘progressive’.

A lot of our lives are constantly affected be the ‘politics’ people want to ignore.

Our existence is ‘political’

TIL, the suffix "-stan" stems from the Persian word ـستان‎, for "place". Simple as that.

Ich suche Mitstreiter für ein Open Source Einsatzmanagement System für Hilfsorganisationen, Feuerwehren, etc. als Ersatz zu drkserver, hiorg server und Co.

Programmieren wollen würde ich das ganze in Rust + Rocket als webserver. Gerne RT.

Funny enough that writeup is still in my read-it-later backlog. 😀

I could even imagine this going further so I could annotate Toots with distinct topics - say "@bascht/tech" or "@bascht/politics" so followers could pick or mute separate streams.

Creating multiple accounts for this would just be bothersome.

I think CW's are already used for this but imo it's not a good UX and doesn't serve the original purpose of having a CW on a Toot.

Hi Fediverse 👋

what do you think of this new landing page design? ✨

Feel free to leave your feedback here 🙂

For a hot minute I thought that Mastodon finally supports i18n'ed Toots, but it's just the translation functionality of Fedilab.

This is still one of my pet peeves with the fediverse — I'd love to annotate Toots with their respective language, so I could start tooting on German and English in parallel.

New instance suspensions 

Hello my lovely :mastoart:•ists!

Just posting to inform you of a few new domain/instance blocks I added today:

These instances were created by people with racist, homophobic, antisemitic, and far-right ideologies.

These instances will no longer be federating with us.

Our full list of instance blocks can be found here:


This BMT album somehow went under my radar for one and a half years. ヾ(・ω・*)ノ

Keeping up with the latest drama is quite easy if you're administering a Mastodon instance.
