⚠️ An issue has been reported with the `tootctl upgrade storage-schema` command in relation to DigitalOcean Spaces. Avoid executing that for now if you're using Spaces.

Also, a warning has been added to the release notes: You don't need to run that command at all. It would incur data transfer costs to do so as it moves files around.

I'm pitching the Fediverse to the Howie Hawkins / Green Party campaign after hearing about how their Twitter account got suspended.

Hmm, is it just me or are a lot of people joining Mastodon right now? Did something happen?

Big spike in new users signing up on mastodon.social - who's moving into the Fediverse today?

Do any public health or mutual aid groups want/need a presence on the fediverse? If you have a domain name and are interested in exploring this space, get in contact with me via instance.community and I'll help you get something up and running

What's the best way to share lists of people to follow on the #Fediverse? I feel like this time of widespread quarantine is an opportunity to onboard people to #Mastodon.

I have a Mastodon list that I'd like to share, but the only way I can imagine right now is by mentioning all the users in a message manually. Thoughts?

yall just stop for a sec and remember how cool it is that we all own and run this here infrastructure. Yes its a complete mess sometimes but all that means is someone has to pull up their sleeves and plant some seeds, or jump nose first into the haystack and find the needle or make up a new idiom cause these are not cutting it

I've released a new Hometown, v1.0.3+3.1.2. This only upgrades Mastodon to 3.1.2, which incorporates a security fix so I encourage Hometown admins to upgrade asap. Also you get neat new Mastodon features like bookmarks and admin announcements.

More here: github.com/hometown-fork/homet

@stevefoerster I'm looking forward to further academic adoption. Do you know of any institutions with instances? I know MIT has one (mastodon.mit.edu).

#Fediverse developer preferences code-language wise 💻

1. #Python
2. #PHP
3. #Javascript
4. #Go
5. #Rust

Of course, if all Wordpress plugins (working and broken ones) and some OStatus tools are included, PHP might as well become number one.
