Thank you @thegibson and @isolategab

, and other social accounts are all still seeking good uptime today. Just sayin’….

@Gargron Specific to :

"There is precedent for open source communities to push back against those who seek to use their tools to promote hate speech. One such case is Mastodon, an open source social media community which has waged a long-running war of attrition against an influx of far-right users from Gab – a war which, as of December 2020, they appear to have won."

Important research out from ISD looking at how hate groups & extremists use open-source platforms - including and . It does a great job of showing some ways to address - while still respecting the open-source ethos.

While it focuses on them, is given a shout-out, one model that the other platforms should look to in this...

Hi , wonder if something could be coded into to make the Federated feed a bit more useful.

I stay away from it for the same reason I stay away from alogrithmic feeds on FB or Twitter or YT....I want something less noisy and cluttered.

Am NOT suggesting anything like an algorithm, but maybe ways to change settings on Federated feeds to suss thru them more? Even user-configured anguage filter, or keyword filters, might help.

I’m really liking the new official app for iOS…. But are lists not yet a feature? Hunting around for where to find my accounts lists to no avail. cc: @Gargron

Question to everyone: I have been very impressed with the voluntary ' server covenant.

Has any other server-based self-hosted open-source platforms done something akin to this?

I'm familiar with other attempts at contributor covenants, but not other server based ones... But hope there are others out there....

So many of these features are already in btw, like bookmarks.

Others seem like an easy lift for future versions... Editing toots is almost already akin to the Undo Tweets feature...

tech and get a shout out 28 minutes in talking about breaking down the social media silos:

Hi folks: is there any effort in the works to make "remote follow" and "remote boost" etc, of posts something less than a 4 click experience?

The more I think about features that would be strategic, the more I think folks should build in features and tools for hyper-local communities to use. Lean in on "instances" intended specifically for networks of a dozen (or at least under 100) friends and family. In essence a replacement for "FB groups."

The certainly do more, but that seems like a strategic opportunity. In essence what Darius Kazemi has been thinking about for a while.

Hi or types: is there a way to create what is functionally a "list" where you can see all the public posts form Instances?

For instance if I wanted to be sure to see all the public posts from an instance like this. It's almost a customized "Federated" view:

has already built so many of these ideas in. Which ones do you think are good ideas and still lacking inside Mastodon or the ?

Wonder if could securely implement GIF reactions like GIPHY into it in a fashion akin to how Signal did...while still supporting privacy....

Interesting to see the users accounts getting pretty close to passing 4 million users.

An idea: @Gargron and other Wouldn't this be served by a stand alone instance just for doctors allowing publicy anonymous posting? Would need some for of verifying doctors into it but could be anonymous to the outside world

Someone really needs to build a web based wizard-like tool helping those who want to and Instagram migrate as much as can be salvaged from their social friends and content over to and .
