So this is my Mastodon experience. It’s been about two weeks since I popped my cherry and I’ve gotta say, I like this community. Props to the mods, admins, etc of @fosstodon. I honestly don’t know the infrastructure, but you know who you are.
I wanted to show some support and found the Fosstodon shop. Proudly, I bought some stickers. Thanks for all your hard work.
Thank you to everyone for the open source project submissions! We're no longer taking submissions as we'll soon begin allowing our Patreons to vote on them and narrow it down to 2 candidates for our donations. If you're still interested in helping us decide which projects to support, you can join us at
A big "thanks" to all of our current/past supporters as these types of things wouldn't be possible without you.
Just a quick reminder that we're looking to make 2 donations to a couple of open source projects. We need you to submit some worthy candidates! Please check the link, below, for more information. We'll stop taking submissions on Friday 6/26.
As recently mentioned, Fosstodon is preparing to make 2 donations to a couple of open source projects, in the amount of $200 each. We need our Fosstodon members' input on where to send those donations. Use the below link to submit the info for an open source project that you'd like us to support!
We'll stop taking submissions, on 6/26. At that time, our Fosstodon Patreons will vote on those submissions and narrow it down to 2 entries.
Regarding our support for open source projects: If you're interested in having a say on where the donations will go, you can sign up to become a Patreon, using the link below.
A HUGE "thanks!" to all of our current Patreons, as we wouldn't be able to do this awesome stuff without you guys!
Fosstodon has always taken the approach of supporting what we're focused on; open source projects. As such, we're preparing to make another round of donations and, this time, we're make 2 donations in the amount of $200.00 each!
In the next few days, we'll be posting a survey link seeking your submissions for open source projects that you want us to show some love to. While submissions will be open to our Fosstodon Community Members, the final vote will be determined by our Patreons.
So, you've joined Fosstodon and are wondering, "now, how does this work?"
One thing that sets Fosstodon apart from traditional social media outlets (and some other instances) is the community's willingness to help and offer valuable feedback. This is especially true with new members.
A big "welcome!" to all of our new members. It's great to see all the new faces and the steady flow of introductory toots!
For those members (new and old) that don't know, https://hub.fosstodon.org/ is full of information that is relative to our instance. From staff members to our Code of Conduct, you can find more information about Fosstodon! Make sure to check it out and, if you haven't already done so, make your first toot and tell us a bit about yourself.
We would like to officially welcom @cooper to the team as our new Community Manager!
#Fosstodon has a new sticker design! If you're needing to fill in some blank space on your laptop lid, may I suggest?
Hey @tootapp it would be great to have an option to hide image captions. This is an extreme case, but even normal captions regularly get in the way. Thanks.
