How to find and interact with toots that haven't reached your instance yet: https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/99942232570954068
Yesterday we updated to version 2.9 which brings a new single column layout. You can toggle it here:
It is the default for new users. I'm not too enthusiastic personally. It doesn't seem to allow for following hashtags which is the primary way of keeping in the loop on topics of interest
Also there is this weird CSS glitch. Might be caused by our 1337 character mod?
First #Florence release, the community Mastodon fork (which aims notably to solve its governance issues). So it's an initial release which is not meant to bring a lot of big changes.
And it's already very pleasant to see the changelog:
- toot length configurable by te admin (without any code hack as in Mastodon)
- same for the bio
- **we can choose to display DMs on the main TL**
I can't wait to see the next steps ! 🤩

I don't know how familiar you are with the fediverse but due to it's distributed nature it can be tough to find both people you know and discover new people or conversations you'd be interested in.
Everyone on our local timeline will see your posts, but to spread beyond it is recommended to use hashtags.
A good way of introducing yourself is by making a post introducing yourself to the wider network and mentioning your interests in #introductions / #introduction . This way people know how to find you.
Here is a post with links to explanations on the different visibility settings for posts and the different timelines in the interface.
hope you enjoy your stay and if you have questions feel free to DM me!

A year ago I tried learning ActivityPub, and more or less failed. I was confounded by a spec that was so abstract I couldn't make heads or tails of it. Turns out I was missing some key things.
I have written a guide to learning about ActivityPub that I wish existed a year ago when I first set out to learn how to write social media servers that conform to the spec:
I do projects on/with/about computers, networks, infrastructures.
