@pixelfed I'd like to see in your FAQs (or homepage) what federation support means for new users to Mastodon/Pixelfed, along with other reason to support Pixelfed instead of Instagram, et. al.

doesn't really tell anyone much.
@ster Haha, I know what you mean. It certainly can feel that way, even if you know that it's not rationale.
One of the expansions comes with a deck of cards you can draw from instead of rolling, which causes each number to come up in exactly the statistical chance (my terrible numeracy means I might not be explaining this well). So, like, the odds of a 7 are X% per roll, normally. In the deck, there are X number of 7s, based on the statistical percent...my head hurts. LOL
Played #Settlers of #Catan again today.
I want people to #disagree with me here, so please #discuss
This game pisses me off, for 2 reasons
1) The #robber takes half your cards and often punishes people who are struggling anyway. I got stuck with 8 cards and lost ones I wanted. Why not just discard down to 7 cards?
2) Development cards aren't fun. They're too #random and it makes it hard to tell when someone is going to win. They're not skill-based, and uncontrollable
To be more transparent about server blocks, I have decided to follow the example of others and publish a list: https://github.com/Gargron/mastodon.social-misc/blob/master/README.md
That list is now linked from our about page. It also explains how different block severities work.
You might notice that bofa.lol is on the list. It's at the very least a temporary measure because our mods had to deal with a lot of problematic content coming from that place yesterday.
I'm now accepting commissions! ✨ Currently only for Twitch Emotes and Sub Badges since I'm a busy child, but if you're interested you can check out my prices and info here: https://trello.com/b/r1dG5mUb/commissions Here's some examples of Twitch Emotes I've done before ↓ ↓ ↓
I have installed some apps on my #kdeneon system, like KeepassXC, CopyQ, Simplescreenrecorder, but unfortunately the tray icon doesn't show up. This make these apps almost unusable.
Have you the same problem? Any solution?
Can a person on instance X issue reports on instance Y about a person on instance Y?
It appears that @wilw is being driven off that instance because the admins are getting too many reports every day.
Would he be "safe" from the dogpiling on a smaller instance?
There's a lot of customer culture attitude in Mastodon-the-community, where people treat Gargron and other devs, the instance admins, moderators, etc. like service workers. It's a spoiled, entitled attitude, where "the customer is always right" and it's okay to be abusive or demeaning to people providing a service when they don't give you what you want.
The fediverse isn't a corporate model. When you're rude or demeaning to someone here, you're being abusive to volunteers building a playground
