Yes, #Tusky 5.2 is crashing when you have polls in your notifications.
1. We are aware of the issue, a fix for the crash is already in the Tusky nightly. You can use it until Tusky 6 is released. Tusky 6 beta will start in about a week.
2. The polls feature is not even a in a Mastodon release candidate yet, maybe wait before running it in production?
3. No Mastodon does not coordinate such breaking changes with app devs.

"Why should I trust 'apt install' to install what's intended?"

"apt doesn't just roam to internet and download random software. It checks for software in the repositories configured. The repositories that is configured out of the box are curated and very unlikely to contain malicious code.

Don't worry, apt isn't npm."

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:

Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)

Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

Has anyone figured out how to give users private keys (that they can actually use) yet?

Browser extension maybe?

I've *basically* turned 's web client into a webapp version of . I've got all the UI hidden and use it 99% with keyboard commands.

It's not for everyone, but I'm really enjoying it—and I love that their custom CSS is flexible enough to let me do so.

Anyone else both use Proton Mail and crazy enough to want this? I'm trying to decide if I should throw it up on Git.

My Emacs is fast after implementing KISS to the Modeline!
After time using smart-mode-line and come to doom-modeline. I begin to study modeline, I had clean doom-modeline a way that I want (like removing features I don't want)

It really spends the time to maintain, so I look back the default modeline. It is really very good after understanding what purpose of modelin…

It sounds like a lot of good improvements are hitting mycroft. Will hopefully get to try the update out soon now that I have unboxed my Mark I.

Ok folks, I need your help. I know you’re gonna say I’m dumb and I’m missing something obvious, but it is what it is.

I’m trying to backup my data folder to B2 using Duplicati, but my user can’t access the data folder without sudo (www-data owns it). I’ve added my user to the www-data group, but still no joy.

What am I missing, folks? I either need to run my backups as sudo, or get access to the data folder without trashing NC permissions. Thanks all!

I think we've made a bad assumption about community.

Mastodon and the like have taken the format of Twitter and distributed it across many instances and just assumed that this will somehow lead to healthier communities.

At it's heart this is still Twitter, and has the potential to manifest many of the same problems along with a few new ones of its own creation.

What does a good community consist of?

You can very easily browse hashtags on the Fediverse by going to a large Mastodon instance and using the address (instance)/tags/(hashtag).

For example:

This page includes public posts from the Fediverse using that hashtag. You don't need to be logged in to view the page.

Click on a post date to see it enlarged with replies.

Different instances show different combinations of posts, depending on who people follow on that instance.

@Gargron are there any plans to improve the moderation tools in Mastodon? Our instance has just been hit with a rather large spam account campaign and the only way to clean them up is to go into each profile one at a time and suspend them.

Bulk action functionality is desperately needed. Some kind of integration with services like "StopForumSpam" would also be beneficial.

@tomterl still, Jami is an interesting project and one of the few that present itself as a communication (and not collaboration) platform!

You can use ... to specify a range of commits in git. So if you want to see what file(s) are changed over several commits, you could do it like this: git show --compact-summary aecc...4490 (where aecc is the latest and 4490 is the earliest commit).
