I’m hosting my site on GitHub pages and occasionally, third party services will not be able to connect to the site while it’s up and responsive to me. This mornings example is with mail chimp. I’m configuring a simple new post notification based on my RSS feed and the merge tags stopped working. Mail chimp reports the RSS feed isn’t valid but I can open the feed fine in the browser. Another example is this SEO quality checker site I use for new posts. I suspect GitHub is doing something.

We've also launched an early version of Inkscape 1.1 alpha for testing!

Calling early adopters to help us test and provide your feedback to improve the major release in the spring.

@Gargron my take is that if you're looking for people to see how big of a community they can interact with is, then go for the whole fediverse. Not just because its bigger but also because that's the pool that people are going to be able to interact with.

I’ve added a testimonials section to, I’ll keep adding quotes over time, let me know what you think

Hello Fediverse!

It's been more than 60 days since "FEP-a4ed: The Fediverse Enhancement Proposal Process" was received.

I kindly request final comments before the proposal is finalized.

If there are no objections the proposal will be finalized in two weeks (on 18th of January).

Thank you!

@dconley was wondering if exlibris is still active.

If yes, then I will add to #activitypub watchlist. In any case I'm curious to your experiences with #gofed

Looks like a cool project!

We want to remind users of our new automated moderation tools.

You may see the page indicating the action you just performed was flagged as suspicious until a human can review it.

Please don't be offended or take it personally! This system isn't perfect and we are working to prevent false positives. #pixelfed

Cool that this instance has steadily grown to 541 users. Very glad to see that growth and thanks to you all.

Let's say I wanted to hook up a town with lots of on the Fediverse by creating a server, which platform would you recommend? ? ? ? Another one?

✨ Fediverse - Social Reimagined

We should adopt broader perspectives on what #fediverse means. While we consider our app domain in terms of end-users, we look at fedi as an infrastructure layer. It's more than that:

Fediverse is a Social Fabric!

I posted a follow-up to my proposal to start a #FediverseFutures initiative outlining this idea:

Give your feedback on the #SocialHub forum, so we'll make this #YearOfTheFediverse rock 🚀

Join the initiative?
Boosts welcome.
