If you know someone's Fediverse address, you can follow them by searching for that address in Mastodon's search box and then clicking on "follow" on the result.

Fediverse addresses look like this:

@ (username) @ (instance name)

You can find Fediverse addresses on every Mastodon profile page, just under the username.

Alternatively, you can search for a profile's URL, or even a post's URL. These will force your instance to display that URL's profile page or post so you can interact with them.

Also, all of these work with Fediverse addresses and URLs from non-Mastodon platforms too! :fediverse:

For example, you can interact with a PeerTube video within Mastodon by searching for that video's URL. The video will appear as a Mastodon post, but it is still the same video and replying to that post within Mastodon will create a comment on the video's PeerTube page.

I'm searching around for Designers.

Where might they be hiding? 🔭 👀

@feditips I have only found one big one by mas.to, and it is request only.

That's basically the problem i'm facing in hosting Fediverse instance, where can i ask if i meet some dead-end.

Do you know anywhere to read and discuss this kind of questions, regarding self-hosting Fediverse instance?
@feditips Hey, do you have any relay recommendations? I just created my Pleroma, and i read using relay is a good way to populate your small instance timeline

Gee wasn't Brexit supposed to shield workers from stuff like this? bbc.co.uk/news/business-608212 Oh I guess it wasn't about protecting workers after all. Huh.

If you're a Fediverse developer, you can apply for funding for your project from @NGIZero.

The deadline for submitting a proposal to their latest round of funding is 1st April 2022:

nlnet.nl/news/2022/20220201-ca

NGI has already funded development of many Fedi platforms like PixelFed, PeerTube, Mastodon and others, as well as lots of non-Fedi libre software too (see the very long list of supported projects here: nlnet.nl/project/current.html)

More info about the foundation that runs the fund at nlnet.nl

@dansup I've not fully thought about it, but maybe the comments from users without accounts, could be allowed only on the users Pixelfed instance.

Thanks.

Hi @dansup has a request to allow anonymous comments in Pixelfed ever come up? I've been thinking about replacing my Wordpress based photoblog with Pixelfed for a long time, but the one thing Wordpress allows is comments from people who don't have an account.

Most of my friends do not "do social media" but still like to comment on my photos. I'd like not exclude them from doing that.

Apart from that thanks for working on Pixelfed.
