Friendly reminder to everyone on Fosstodon - this is an English-speaking instance, so we would request that all Toots be posted in English please.

This isn't because we don't like other languages, but our staff can only speak English, so there is no way of moderating posts in other languages.

Unfortunately, we will need to remove any non-English posts we discover. We're sorry if this causes any frustration with our awesome members. 👍

Folks, we have had a number of new patrons join our ranks, thank you so much for the support.

If you pledged $5/month or more, please remember to drop us an email to so we can give you your forwarding mailbox, if you want it.

Unfortunately, Fosstodon will no longer be accepting donations via LiberaPay.

Per our Code of Conduct ( we have globally blocked those accounts.

Thank you all for the continued support - you're all awesome!

Sorry folks, we had some outage due to DB issues. Normal service has resumed!
