Pinned toot

Hello fediverse! lib.reviews/ is a free/open/nonprofit alternative to proprietary review sites like , , .

It plugs into sources: , and (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already. On GitHub at: github.com/eloquence/lib.revie - IRC: .reviews on irc.freenode.net - Matrix: matrix.to/#/#lib.reviews:matri

New featured deployed: If you have invite links to give away (you get those by writing reviews), you can now add a default language by appending ?signupLanguage=<code>, e.g., ?signupLanguage=de for German (see footer for list of supported codes) to the invite link URL.

That way if, e.g., you want to invite speakers, they'll get the Esperanto user interface right from the get-go, without having to click through English. :) Thanks to Patrick Noll for the PR.

Nice review (4 stars) by @Greg of the KT1 ergonomic tray - might be of interest to folks with wrist troubles:

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. :) If you've requested an invite and we missed it (or if you would still like one), please ping! We're using invite links for now to avoid getting overrun by spammers or other bad faith actors.

If you're wondering whether you should follow/unfollow: this account will post the occasional dev update, respond to questions, and boost reviews w/ hashtag , but no more than 1-2 toots per day to avoid spamming your timelines. :)
