@peduarte Mastodon clients/apps vary. Most important thing to remember is that DMs are not public, but also not secure.
Anything sensitive is better in email really.
And my DMs are brimming with spam about becoming an amazon delivery driver. Which is new for me.
I'm basically checking in there just once a day now, and mostly just feeling stressed each time I do.
Gonna delete the app from my phone very soon, now that Mastodon is taking hold quite nicely for me.
This is good to see.
And as @biilmann said over on twitter, "Open source done with secret roadmaps and surprise launches is very different from a truly open collaborative processes that allow all users of the project to plan ahead and align around future roadmap items."
I heartily agree. Bravo, Remix team!
A handy tidbit from @davatron5000’s RSS feed about grabbing stills from videos on the web:
Stage 1, seeing if Mastodon suited me:
Crosspost my tweets to here.
Stage 2, happy here. Leave breadcrumbs:
Switch to crossposting toots to twitter.
Stage 3, giving up on twitter:
Remove crossposting and get comfy here.
Feeling pretty at ease going quiet over there now, and just participating in what feels like a much more constructive environment here.
More than happy to send feedback as an issue in a repo of that is better, but since I can't access that at this stage, here's a little thing I noticed:
The link to my profile in the top right has some overflow issues for the long-ish name I have.
Once again... this all looks and feels outstanding!
YES! Seeing that piqued my interest immediately.
Pinafore has been getting lots of positive attention due to its good accessibility support, so I wonder where you are on that particular frontier. Could be an important differentiator for wide adoption
Ooooh! First impressions are amazing!
This looks outstanding.
Do you want any feedback in the form of issues or PRs as I spend time using this? (Only asking as I see one tiny UI issue and I'd like to only give feedback in a helpful way — or just hush up if that is most helpful :) )
But this is good too. I’ll be round to to collect on the last Friday of each month.
@charis Totally! I quite like the idea of a company having their own instance so that they're not taking slurping up the capacity of a popular instance. Although they could of course contribute to help fund it.
But then again it might be a sign of being a better citizen to host their own. It also avoids popular companies getting too much influence over community instances.
