Maybe it’s a thing with some of the apps?

Is it a thing that Mastodon profile fields don’t like https, or is it a bug?

Such a happy cat. Loves @aral’s lap.

Back in the homeland with the home cat.

These photos of @gigapup just had me in hysterical giggles. Either I’m delirious or Osky eating carrots is the funniest thing…

want to do an introduction, but struggling to know where to start.

Hi everyone, since the same issues come up again and again and are keeping people from using this site, I started a wiki page on Mastodon #accessibility stuff!

Please go and improve it, and share it with anyone who might need it!

It is supposed to help use Mastodon right now, by explaining useful features that Mastodon already has and showing workarounds for features it lacks. It's not meant to imply that improvements to Mastodon itself can't or shouldn't be made :thumbsup_paw:

Fuck you, Erdoğan, fuck you very much.

PS. I stand by every word I said. Tyrants come and go. I will visit the land of my birth again one day.

PPS. Remember this next time you feel like booking a holiday to Erdoğan’s Turkey.

@laura This one contains some suggestions, I however don’t know whether it’s the one you’re searching for.

I’ve heard tell of a great post with suggestions on when to use CW for sensitive topics. Anybody got a link?

‪Thanks to my sister whose tidying up found this photo attached to a homemade calendar adorned with bits of glitter and felt tip scribbles.‬

‪I’ve not changed much in twenty-six years. Maybe I should bring that mega fringe back…‬

There’s a Better update ready for you!

Just open the app to automatically get the latest blocking rules.

I’m at the point where I refuse to believe this is ignorant design. It’s malicious design.

When your (accept only!) cookie notice covers your footer, which contains your only link to your Privacy Policy…

Hey #Fediverse. When you post pictures, please please please with puppies on top fill in that description box for the visually impaired. You will be helping us out tremendously. We want to enjoy your pictures as much as others do. You don't have to write a novel, but just fill in some details.

Thanks with much love:

Like your books in audio? Accessibility For Everyone is now an audiobook!

Listen to me talk to you about how we can make a more accessible and inclusive web for less than four hours. Unabridged, narrated by me, and thanks to the hard work of my brother Sam.

I also wrote a little bit about the audiobook on my blog:

Back from a holiday break. Managed to get myself off some scroll addiction, so I’ll see how that works out!
