Also on our radar:

@Gargron @gaditb I don’t think we should shorten it at all (or only do so if the account is on the same instance as the person viewing it – that would be helpful in differentiating local accounts immediately). The full address is a cornerstone of what makes Mastodon unique (its federated nature) – we should be making that visible.

I'm not sure what to put into the press kit. Especially since the logo might get updated very soon...

Updated with:

- how it works section
- sponsors section
- branding section (but press kit link goes nowhere)
- fuzzy search on the instance list

"Thousands of images promoting goods sold on Amazon and other shopping sites have been removed after a photo-sharing service changed its terms. Ebay and Etsy have also been affected, in addition to many forums and blogs. The problem has been caused by Photobucket introducing a charge for allowing images hosted on its platform to be embedded into third-party sites. The company caught many of its members unaware with the change, prompting some to accuse it of holding them to ransom. Denver-based Photobucket is now seeking a $399 annual fee from those who wish to continue using it for "third-party hosting" and is facing a social media backlash as a consequence."

Yet another reason not to use the silo-style sites that centralize storage and self-host.

Are #introductions a thing on this instance?

If so, I'm a musician and artist operating in Morgantown, WV. Reppin' U92 college radio and the Bench Artists' Collective/ The Diamond Shop Gallery. Medium and genre are irrelevant these days, I jump around and mix it up. I play guitars, basses, drums, keys, and assorted toys, objects and electronics.


Everyone working on #Mastodon in some way does so out of the goodness of their nerdy heart. If you are enjoying the fruits of their labor, consider throwing some 💰 their way!
