@evandornbusch The @microsoft account was created in April of last year. It only posted it's first post a couple days ago. I doubt it would have been approved it if was created today, but since Microsoft DOES contribute to FOSS and they haven't outright violated our CoC as far as I can tell, we'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

@Nujtag if you want to know the team, here’s a list - hub.Fosstodon.org/team

Thanks for contributing!

Fosstodon boosted

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. :blobcatfingerguns:

@fluffy@social.handholding.io hi, @kev here. I just checked the report, it appears that the toot below is what was reported. Although the toot isn’t marked as NSFW, it is marked as sensitive, so that’s the same thing in my book.

We won’t be taking any action.


Side note: I can only assume that the details didn’t come through to you because the user didn’t select the right option(s) when creating the report. 🤷‍♂️

@administrator @ThisisSprouts@anime.website @satori that’s an automated report from Mastodon.

We're thrilled to say that Fosstodon is now a proud member of the .

This is thanks to all the donations our members make, where any excess funding is donated to worthy projects.

@jawsh sometimes searching for the URL instead of the handle works. For example ubuntu.social/@ubuntu

This is just when federation hasn’t occurred yet. Once you’re federated with a remote instance, you should be good with searching via handles.

@garritfra we have been asked this a number of times, but we're a small team and simply don't have the time.

@wholesomedonut unfortunately not. We don’t have the time to manage something like a Peertube instance.
