Just a quick reminder that Free and Open Source Software isn't a competition among ourselves.
We're fighting against those who would co-opt general purpose computing.
It doesn't matter if you're on the BSD side or the Linux side, or if you believe that KDE is great or that GNOME is amazing (or prefer a tiling window manager). We're all on the same side.
We're at our best when we link our arms together and say in a clear voice, you'll have to pass through all of us to overcome all of us.
@cwebber I just realized that as well. That is just wrong.

@thj QOTO.org is a popular one that has some good policies.
Of course, I am also biased towards the instance I am on and administrate, so I won't mention it. 😛
SURVEY: Which instances do you think belong on this map of the Fediverse that I'm making? If you know something about the reputation of ANY instances, including big or general ones, please let me know!
The live spreadsheet of candidates can be found here: https://www.icloud.com/numbers/0on1P2oydvGPq_OdqAJyTCAwA#Instances
Posters of the map will be available in the https://mstdn.store by the end of July.
Please boost this post so it can gather as many replies as possible.
@zudn I'd say it is as safe as anything else, but maybe slightly better than apps like Google translate.
Which platform are you using?
@zudn Unfortunately no, since it requires a plugin server-side for any full-text search, which we had shortly, but was subsequently disabled due to excessive resource usage.
@raven I host a Plume instance. It has had some problems in the last update (I kinda helped them release it too quickly). I would recommend waiting for 0.5.1.
We are starting to use C more for our Bible software. See our progress here:
@Daintress You can upload videos.
In addition, YouTube links embed a player on Mastodon.
@jwinnie Well, first there is a practical difference between practicing the common religion of Christianity and following the Jesus described in the Bible. Many people claim to believe in the Bible and follow its teachings, but don't really live out their faith or really know God.
Following Jesus is about having a relationship with Him. The Bible just points at Him, and is a very powerful tool for that.
Revelation from God is possible, as the relationship between us and Him goes both ways. but He doesn't contradict Himself.
The Bible is one way God speaks to us, and how we can read to understand God better. We can know exactly what Jesus taught and what other first-hand followers of Him said.
I don't know much about your beliefs. What do you mean when you say, "I share most of the fundamental ideas of Christianity"? What do you believe?
Did you know you can export your Mastodon Follows and other things as simple text files? That way if your instance dies, you can simply join another one and import those backups.
It's in your Preferences under 'Import and export'.
I thought I'd mention it, since I often forget to do it for too long.
@redstarfish Super useful. I was looking for something like this.
