Mastodon should make it easier for me to view a user's instance (by clicking the latter part of their username or something)

it came to my attention that this mastodon instance randomly throws 500 errors this evening, i think i found and fixed the cause, if it still happens to you, please ping me.
#tchncs :tchncs: :mastodon:

so there’s a new search engine for the fediverse: search.social.

most people probably don’t expect their public posts to be searchable, especially if they use mastodon, so here’s how to opt out (for mastodon): open your settings and go to Preferences > Other, then check “Opt out of search engine indexing”.

if you’re an instance admin, you can opt your entire instance through robots.txt. you can set this up in nginx: stackoverflow.com/questions/10

Not that many see that side as positive but if there is the will and backbone it gets stuff moving along nicer than if the folks go it alone...

To be honest most are too tired to make fresh moves in right directions, i am speculating but it could be true as it is not instantly rewarded as it ought to be.

But i find that taking things in a good stride is a good feeling tbh!

Seeing all #Fediverse #Mastodon and #Matrix managed services: it’s good but still it’s not self-hosting if many relay on one hoster. I appreciate the effort they do bringing all the opportunity to have an own instance with own domain but, better to make it yourself. I’ll start a session to get people into the tech from very first stage without need of knowledge. #soon by #KABI

In case i FORGET IT, i am reposting stuff tbc!

Have a look at Matrix/Riot. It's great and can be self hosted as a part of a federated network (like Mastodon).

Using it since 2 years for all internal & family chats, radius growing.

I was a detractor of the #Matrix sequels but after the splendor that was #Sense8, I’m inclined to be open-minded about a new movie.

Most folks who use the tag are not quite english-speaking it appears? 😆

I strongly recommended #Matrix #Mastodon #Diaspora and #PixelFed to them. #PrivacyYathra

When I asked people to raise their hands if they don't use #Facebook, there were many hands, when I asked for people not using #Facebook nor #Instagram the number reduced, when I added not #WhatsApp, there was just one hand. I'm happy there was at least one person. Abhinav, their FOSS Cell coordinator was that person.
