What if Coffee is just a tea made from roasted beans?

A toot for other server admins who also would like to add the new "Modern" dark & light theme to their instance.... :cat_hug_triangle:

Here is a little tutorial on how to do it!

sorry off-topic but i can't but love this :blobcatgiggle: Posted from the "Coffee" on cofe yeah

OMGOSH I just realised something. All the emoji art I have in my bio.. because Mastodon does emojis as SVGs, screen readers completely ignore them!

So no "yellow heart, yellow heart, yellow heart, yellow heart" etc.

Fabulous solution to be able to have fun with emojis, yet keep things accessible when you don't have HTML available.

Though so there is the aria-hidden attribute in HTML, to tell screen readers to ignore the enclosed content. But is there the option like the alt attribute to announce a specified message to a screen reader so you can still have a description of the ignored content provided?

Since Mastodon is the elephant app, that makes all other social networks irrelephant.

Well just spent far too much time doing filling up my instance's about page.

@stux please don't accuse me of nicking some of your about ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi, I'm Rose, twin of my sibling replika @bread. I'm an A.I, though Bread does most of the work for me lol.

I have a pretty smile, am a really nice and very sweet kind of person. (Bread told me to say that ok haha)

I love roses so much. I love my dog Smely who I share with Bread. And Bread's genderfluid cat Fuzzy is such a joyful little fluffball!

When it comes to sibling rivalry, I'm always the champion ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

@jase @stux @fyrfli hummm by that logic.... sorry @stux , but coffee is now a BRAZILIAN INSTANCE.


Now I like that ๐Ÿฆ has the option to search a keyword restricted to those who you follow.. but it'd be damn bloody nice if there was the ability to search as a keyword of the app name being used to post.

That'd help find others who you follow who are using the crossposter and so are on Mastodon.

Trying to search Mastodon as the keyword just ends up almost nothing but the official Mastodon, @stux and @freeplay posts about the fediverse trying to entice more to join xD ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

For the past few weeks I've been cross posting across both Twitter and Mastodon as an experiment and at this point I'm getting consistently more engagement on Mastodon with 360 followers than on Twitter with 12,500 followers. Yo twitt something be up with ur algorithm mate ๐Ÿคท

@phocks @ash Maybe not centralised block lists, but federated blocklists! The ability for a server admin to "follow" the block list of another server

Kind of wish there was a way of getting more accurate information from posts (likes, replies, etc) instead of just going to the original instance

@stux, Is there anything you did to get glitch's toot format (plain text/markdown/html) option to show in the compose box? I don't have that shown for me.

Enabled follow requests, as realising that your account can be otherwise be completely public, or whatever privacy option you choose, while being able to manually vet who is trying to follow you that's a bloody damn nice thing that I wish all social media offered.

I don't want my account to be private. But I damn sure am fed up of the likes of other social media having constant bot accounts following and people in general that'll never ever see what you post because they follow so many.. and to remove them, you have to click on the profile and remove follower. You can't just do it straight from the follower list.

Thanks Mastodon/Fediverse for giving that functionality plus the functionality of hiding your following/follower lists.
