@nightpool Can you shoot me a link where I can read what instances we block here on cybre.space?

The current list of ways something can get into the federated timeline:

- someone from your server is following that user
- someone from your server replied to that user
- someone from your server is following someone who replied to that user
- someone from your server liked/boosted it
- someone from your server copy/pasted the link into the search box, causing the server to load it

heads up for cybre.space users

#Mastodon Instances need something like a UN. Instances that want to cooperate and have a set of policies they all agree on can come together and bolster anti-harassment and hate speech policies.

Hey weekend Masto peeps

I have a horrible living situation & need to get out of it this summer so I can start HRT! I have a place to go once the Fall semester starts, but would also really like to just live somewhere independently, so if any LGBT folks in south west PA are looking for roomates or would otherwise be able to take one on, I would really appreciate getting in contact.

Boosts appreciated

The breakdown of percentages of mastodon users by country of residence makes the whole "WHY AREN'T THEY SPEAKING ENGLISH" thing particularly amusing.

I mean the number of people on mastodon just from either France or Japan was what, 2/3 of the entire userbase, at least?

@bksmgglr Sure thing, here's the video, check the description for a link to the blog post: youtube.com/watch?v=HKJpCSyPn8

If you want to follow those rules, fine.

But you now have choices to make about who to federate with. You always had choices but now you are being forced to make them.

They're not necessarily easy choices. Doing what is "right" is subjective. I can't tell you what to do. I can't tell you what to do because /I/ don't know what to do.

Obviously "block illegal content" is up there on the list but whatever else you do is up to you now.

@Rushyo Plus, I think there's other ways to mitigate fakes, but they require a certain level of public awareness. News sites could run their own instances, so if Tom Brokaw isn't tooting from @brokaw@nbc.com, you know they're a fake. An instance could host celeb accounts and offer verification services, so the domain is the validation, not some checkmark. It's a different way of thinking about social networking, but probably a healthier/more sustainable one in the long run.

Me yesterday:

Let's build a air pollution sensor. This will be fun.

Me today:

Hm, is my sensor damaged? It shows values above the air polution limits. This can't be right πŸ€” .

Some things I learned about the Mastodon web UI:

The profile page of a user on another server won't show all of their follows/posts. Open it in a new tab (by middle-clicking their username in a toot) to view them all.

To boost or fav a toot on an external site, copy its URL into the search box on your local instance. The toot will be shown as a search result.

After 3 explosives went of near the bus of Borussia Dortmund the match got postponed a day. To accomodate the Monaco fans Borussia fans started a social media campaign opening their doors, offering beds. I love humanity from time to time. πŸ™‚

@bksmgglr @jd Ah, try https. I still need to setup http --> https redirect. Apologies for my laziness.
