#Mastodon 3.1 is out! 🎉

Among other things, bookmarks, admin announcements with emoji reactions, improvements to mod tools and loads of other fixes!

Twitter now thinks pedophilia is a protected sexuality. Make of that information what you will.

I really don't trust this server to be able to update to 3.0 while actually running this, so I'm gonna take this instance down for a short while in a few minutes.

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: .. Please speak up!

As the anniversary of the Twitter Wave of 2018 approaches I’m pouring one out for the ones who slunk back to twitter to talk about *checks* politicians and the same bigoted twitter personalities that they’ve been complaining about for the past six years

(Technically, "aghjunghje" is more like "append", but who CARES.)

1992 web: there are five websites. They all link to each other.
2002 web: There are thousands of websites for everyone's niche interest, you can find yourself a community and friends in this massive decentralized global network!
2019 web: There are five websites. They all link to each other.

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

I put >:3 in a commit message at work. mastodon has changed me
