Hi everyone, since the same issues come up again and again and are keeping people from using this site, I started a wiki page on Mastodon stuff!

Please go and improve it, and share it with anyone who might need it!

en.mstdn.wiki/Accessibility

It is supposed to help use Mastodon right now, by explaining useful features that Mastodon already has and showing workarounds for features it lacks. It's not meant to imply that improvements to Mastodon itself can't or shouldn't be made :thumbsup_paw:

Stuff like navigating Mastodon with keyboard only is missing, simply because I don't know much about it. I hope someone else will add that, and more :)

Also I know that Mastodon isn't a "site", my brain is tired and I feel silly for phrasing it that way, please don't laugh.

Oh also good info to add: Mobile apps stufff, like which have adjustable font size or use the sytem font settings etc

Heck, that old post where I accidentally called Mastodon a "site" (despite having known better for more than half a year already) sure is getting boosted today.

*learns to handle ridiculous feelings, one ridiculous feeling at a time*

@maunzikation I'm not good enough with javascript to add it to the web ui, but I am writing a TUI client that will be completely navigable by keyboard

@balrogboogie oh cool! (i thought i saw some discussion about keyboard navigation details some time, so I just assumed it was possible.)

@maunzikation

There's a Mastodon wiki now?

There's a .wiki TLD?

I guess this is what I get for not coming to the meetings...

...but bulkregister wants $35 to register a .wiki domain, so never mind.

Capitalists ruining things again.

@woozle hah :D it was a thing a while ago and never really took off, but I like that it exists.

@maunzikation Possibly because they want $35 to register a .wiki domain. >.<

I have a bunch of wiki sites I'd probably move to .wiki domains if it were more like $10.

@woozle @maunzikation use a subdomain instead and keep them all under that if possible?

@LottieVixen @maunzikation

That would kind of miss the point, I think -- i.e. having a nice, short, tidy (and descriptive) domain-name. setting up <something>.wiki and then putting each wiki as a <project>.<something>.wiki already kind of loses out to just wiki.<existing domain>.
