@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

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:

mastodon.at/@switchingsocial/t

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

#Mastodon

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.

Who called it a bank vault and not a crypt o’ currency?

Oh, by the way, version 1.2 of Mastonaut will also include a search feature, because why not?

It turns out that setting a timer on your phone is not the best response to, "Can we be serious for a minute?"

Are you a UK-based artist? Do you have a climate-related project idea? Do you want to get paid to develop it? Do you want me to have your back on the tech side? Apply for a winter residency at Watershed (where I work, starting July 1): watershed.co.uk/jobs-opportuni

"You (probably) don’t need ReCAPTCHA" by Kevin Davis kevv.net/you-probably-dont-nee

Great post. Anecdotally, I can say that adding a "click this invite link" notice to toot.cafe has stopped almost all of the spam. Maybe I should take his advice and add a simple "What's 2 + 3?" or something similar.
