By far the most common request I get is for alternatives to Google's Re-Captcha.
The situation is so unclear that I haven't done an alternatives section on the site.
Do you have suggestions for re-captcha alternatives?
(I know this has come up before, but the discussions are scattered across many threads which people are failing to find.)
@mastonaut Any plans to make a unified timeline (toots + replies + dms)? Then only a single column is needed for all three 🙂
@switchingsocial Any alternatives to Spotify's algorithms to find new music for you based on what you listen to?
@mastonaut Hello and thank you for the app! If you hover over the (what I assume is) the poll option in the compose pane, the tool tip is for content warnings
Some bozos: "You know not everyone on gab is a nazi, right? Have you seen their feed?"
Guess what? If they're choosing gab as their home, they're supporting nazis. If you support nazis, you enable the harm they do.
Guess what? They have the option of going somewhere--anywhere--that isn't gab. It's not our fault if they choose to live among the nazis, and I'm sure as hell not going to let hundreds of nazis into my mentions just for these people who "have their own reasons" for being there.
You can view all of a person's posts filtered by hashtag by adding "/tagged/" to the end of their public profile address, then adding the hashtag.
For example, here is a link to all of switching.social's posts tagged #MastoTips:
This can be very useful for artists wanting to link to a portfolio, or writers wanting to link to articles about a topic.
You can also add these to your public profile page by going to Preferences > Edit Profile > Featured Hashtags
If you were having issues logging in after the previous update, I do apologize. I’m happy to announce that the update that fixes this has been approved and should show up on the App Store anywhere from now to the next couple of hours.
If logging-in fails again, try a second time, because Mastonaut will now refresh its credentials after a failed login.
I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
