@Gargron is there a way to clear sidekiq jobs out of the queue related to a particular instance? I'm trying to clear a huge backlog and it keeps getting hung up trying to deliver to kznk.me

Is there yet a Mastodon instance themed around language learning, multilingualism and polyglot people?

I could be interested in opening one, if this niche is not filled yet.

if you have done any work on/in/around , you should definitely read this opinion piece by Jay Pipes about what he would do different today.

Worried about the dominance of big instances? No, really, this is quite natural.

As an emergent and self-governing system, it could be expected that the size distribution of #Mastodon instances roughly follows Zipf's law.

Does it?

At first you see the top 6 instances, and then the rest. But on a log-log scale the size distribution is close to a straight line, which would be expected from an emergent system.

I've heard a lot of requests for reply counters so you know if there's a discussion before opening a thread, and some servers like switter.at implemented it on their own already. Is this okay:

I've said it before and I'll say it again: you can't beat a good cup of tea.

mastodon.social down, maybe mastodon.technology works. But I still have no idea how to find the content I'm looking for over here in the mastoverse...

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
