“When you do a fault analysis, there's no point in assigning fault to a part of the system you can't change afterward, it's like stepping off a cliff and blaming gravity. [...] Once you look at it from that perspective,you realize that allocating blame never helps anything unless you blame yourself, because you're the only one whose actions you can change by putting blame there.”
If you have submitted patches (or translations) to Mastodon before and they've become part of the software, you can go here:

@grainloom @Oz Honestly these discussions are even further muddled by the fact that most websites, that is, non-social-media websites, deal with textual links indistinguishable from other text, while platforms like Twitter, Discord and Mastodon only allow linking URLs in the first place, which have a distinct visual syntax.
Not highlighting textual links is indeed stupid.
@Oz I've always accepted accessibility improvements into Mastodon in the forms of contrast improvements and screen reader markup. But this is the first instance when it requires a major design change. The interface is busy enough as it is without needing any more horizontal lines.

Quit using Mendeley people!
They started encrypting your database so you cannot easily move it over to other tools any more.

(Elsevier are a bunch of crooks, blocking interoperability one-way and not the other. Almost as bad as Google blocking uBlock for your safety...)
I caught myself cheering for my containers. "Go, profiler_2, you can do it!"
Maybe that's too much #sysops this week...
Hey @Humblr I support fully you providing a Tumblr alternative after their latest policy changes
However most of your instance is unmarked NSFW content from accounts with NSFW names and NSFW avatars. You are a problem in the fediverse right now.
I would suggest that you either try to enforce those rules (I understand it's a lot of work), mark content NSFW by default, or just disable federation.
Does #Mastodon load toots from profiles, if no one follows it or loads any of the toots directly? Is it deferred? It seems that no toots shows up the first time I look at someone's profile
