After publishing my #Nextcloud setup guide, a couple of people asked me whether they can host on shared hosting.
TL;DR - Yes!
@tootapp when is core functionality such as the ability to report within the app and polls coming?
The lack of progress with the app, considering it’s not free, is getting frustrating. I thinking about switching to Mast, but I don’t want to as I really love this app.
The new #Mastodon layout is so good! I’m actually considering removing the mobile apps from my devices and just using the WebUI.
Great thing about iOS is when you add a webpage to your home screen, it kinda acts like an app anyway.
We’re now on Mastodon 2.9, which comes with the new single column layout.
New users will get the new layout, but existing users will need to switch.
You can switch between the single and multi column layouts by going to Settings > Preferences > Appearance then enabling/disabling the “Advanced Web Interface”.
People of the Fediverse, I need your help...

Over the past 6 months or so, a few members have asked us if we accept donations via #Liberapay.
We moved away from them because they were having issues; it looks like those issues are now fixed (we hope). So we’re happy to announce that Fosstodon is now accepting Liberapay donations again. 😁
Start a blog and write your first article, get $20. Write another 3 articles within six months and get another $20.
Hey @tootapp I love the new iPad interface. However, it would be great to have the ability to shrink the sidebar to just icons (or hide it completely), so it doesn’t take up a 3rd or the screen. Is there somewhere I can make a feature request please?
A friend of mine (relatively new #Linux user) complained that they didn't know how to mount a partition in Ubuntu, so they can use it for backups.
They know how to do it now, hopefully this will help others too.
We have been asked about the longevity of Fosstodon, especially since a number of key instances have gone.
Hopefully this post will allay any concerns. TL;DR - we got your back!
There's a few hours left for you to submit an Open Source project that you think we should donate to.

Opinions are my own.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
