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

patreon.com/fosstodon.

A big "thanks" to all of our current/past supporters as these types of things wouldn't be possible without you.

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.

My post on how does work is very popular, so I decided to take some time out to give it a re-write.

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.

Please don't hesitate to raise a hand (toot) and ask questions. If you prefer some reading material, @kev has written a great article to help you get started:

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.

We have added a new sticker design to our shop and they’re available for purchase now!

@selea@social.linux.pizza @fosstodon@fosstodon.org do you know any good CloudFlare alternatives for bot protection? I'm using their services only because it's free and gives me ddos and HTTP bot-raid protection and it's working very well. And I couldn't find any better options yet, I would like to move away, but now I don't see I can.

Following some feedback from one of our members, we have replaced with for our instance.
