Mastodon isn't sustainable.

Even on what is mostly a single-user instance like mine it uses around 10GB of disk space per month. The database stores 348.389 statuses.

If we want Mastodon to succeed, we have to solve this.

Please take a moment to check whether your remote backup scripts will overwrite existing backups with empty files while the machine being backed up is down :flan_cool:

Relaying this message for a friend, honestly :flan_pats:

I leave Mastodon for a couple hours and suddenly teeth are the new slime. What is wrong with you people?

I really wish Mastodon had something like G+ circles so that you can either limit toots to a certain group of users or just ping multiple ones in one go.

I set up a Raspberry Pi to connect my 286 to the internet over wifi and also act as a fileserver using etherdfs and everything’s just... working mastodon.social/media/17vyKUj9

With 2018 being almost over, I've decided to build some absolutely inofficial Fediverse charts.

If you want to take part, simply reply to this toot and tell us about your game, movie, or album release of the year and I'll collect the data and build some funny graphs at the end of the year. Deal? 😊

If you think more categories should be included, feel free to respond with whatever it was you liked best this year, and I'll try to group all responses.

Boosts appreciated!

Did I ever tell you people about Bernd das Brot? It's a show that plays on the German KIKA TV network in the night when they have nothing to broadcast otherwise.

It's a show about the existential crisis of a depressed, sentient loaf of bread living in a blank white universe tormented by robotic arms and a creepy narrator. It's utterly brilliant.

okay yeah so, this site is very welcoming to NSFW content and stuff, but please make sure that everything lewd is placed under a CW or at the very least, marked as sensitive with text like "lewd, NSFW, 18+" in the post so that people can know what's there! Also, if you notice porn that's not hidden properly, don't boost it!

(this is a PSA disguised as a joke. I've seen several people using 🔞 thinking it means adults only)
