Anyone know of an open source alternative to Padlet? https://padlet.com
I like the functionality but it did something weird: I had added some stuff to others' pads before I had an account; then I created an account and it had tracked me and added my contributions to those pads (before I had an account) to my new account.
When I emailed them to ask how this happened and how data is tracked, I got a non-answer.
@clhendricksbc I imagine it tracks anonymous contributions using persistent cookies in your browser; once you had an account it was able to connect them together.
@scottbw That's probably it. Annoying. I expect this sort of thing happens all the time and we just don't find out about it the way I did.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
