Now social.coop is on mastodon 2.9+ you can choose to use the single column layout. I just switched, and find it much less overwhelming to look at.
See details here https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/06/mastodon-2.9/
@nicksellen awesome! Is Keybase.io integration being considered? It works from Mastodon 2.8 up
@michel_slm sounds a good idea! seems like it only requires writing a message:
"Mastodon has built-in support for Keybase proofs starting with version 2.8.0. If you don't see the instance you're looking for in the Keybase app, contact @mlsteele or email firstname.lastname@example.org to have it added to the list."
I'll write a message...
@nicksellen neat! For a long while our instance was really behind on updates so this was not even an option. Thanks for all the great work bringing us up to date!
I work in tech, so mea culpa - I should really have volunteered more, but my daily job is for a social media company and I was worried about a potential conflict of interest.
Come to think of it, if I'm not actually open-sourcing actual improvements to Mastodon I think I'll be fine. If you can use some new hands I'd love to help!
@michel_slm great! For sure, would be welcome. We have a tech call every two weeks. Next one is this Wednesday, at 8:30pm UK time if you can make that. It's quite nice to have a chit chat and get to know each other a little more. Although not required :)
We don't really have a clear roadmap at the moment so I'm not sure what to recommend right now. Hoping to get clearer on that as the weeks progress.
@nicksellen that's lunchtime on the US West Coast, so perfect for me. Details in Loomio, I assume?
we also have a matrix chat room here https://riot.im/app/#/room/#social.coop.tech:matrix.org (not very active, but worth joining for faster chat experience)
and a pad for agenda points / live notes during meeting https://codi.kanthaus.online/social.coop?edit
@nicksellen: I had to miss it today, apologies - will try and join the next one
@michel_slm no problem! Whenever it works out is great 👍
@michel_slm keybase said it's setup now, can you try it out and see if it works? I can announce it more widely then.
@nicksellen ooh, I like it!
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
