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.
We have added a new sticker design to our shop and they’re available for purchase now!
We're looking for a Community Manager to join our team. Could it be you? Find out more here...
@email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.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.

Yay ^^ They finally arrived! The @fosstodon stickers. Adding another topicstarter to the billboard side of the thinkpad, it's been a great place to be ever since I joined. Thank you all!
We have had some issues overnight where the instance’s timelines were not updating. Out host, @mastohost appear to have fixed the issue and we should be back to normal now.
If you’re still experiencing issues, please email the team at email@example.com
Apologies for any issues caused.
#Fosstodon is growing fast and we need your help!

Unfortunately, we have had to update some of the instances we have blocked.
All Gab instances and been 'upgraded' from Silenced to Suspended. Mstdn.jp has also been suspended.
