New to administering a Mastodon instance, hereβ€”
Any recommendations on how to go about increasing the character limit of user profile descriptions? I have seen this in effect on other instances. Thanks in advance.

Hello, Federation! I'm not entirely new to Mastodon, but this is my first personal instance. After leaving other big-name social networks, I wanted someplace trustworthy where people could find me by my real name.
I will do my best to use content warnings appropriately. Please correct me if I mess up!
Some of my interests:

See you around! πŸ‘Ύ

I'm really happy to announce that the company I work for has just publicly opened a #Mastodon instance for all its 5000 employees.

This is the result of an initiative @moritzheiber and I have started a year ago and have pushed through with the help of many other colleagues.

So if you want to hear my voice as a #thoughtworker, you can follow me here: @judeswae

Hey guys, how are you doing?!

Do you already know about the alternative gmail client named #k9mail client?

You can find it on @fdroidorg app.

You can use pgp encryption, it's amazing.

Share it, someone can use.

Hi #iOS #devs: The @matrix client #riotapp for iOS needs some accessibility love. Missing button labels, missing labels on bottom tabs, and rows that don't activate on double-tapping with VoiceOver on the Home tab. If you have a few spare cycles and would like to donate them to a good cause, this is one opportunity. The two Github issues are:
github.com/vector-im/riot-ios/
github.com/vector-im/riot-ios/
#a11y #iosdev

And just like that, we've reached the end of March...

Uhhh, I mean April? What?!

while #telegram is down (at least for some) take this as an oportunity to reflect:
- do you rely on a centralized service
- telegram runs on proprietary software
- it can't federate and creates by that something known as 'walled gargen'
- there are great alternatives you might like

#matrix (federated protocoll) -> about.riot.im/
#xmpp (federated protocoll) -> conversations.im/ , #jabber ...

for future use:
briar (in beta) has p2p
briarproject.org/index.html

Booted! System 6. It appears to have a full 4MB of ram already installed, so that’s exciting.

Can’t wait for my transfer cable and floppy emu.

BTW, if you're interested in working on pleroma (or a migration tool) please visit #pleroma on freenode and take a look at git.pleroma.social so we can coordinate and help you. Any help is very welcome!

Today I learned that Wordpress.com accounts cannot be deleted.

Hmm. I'm glad this is being worked on, but there's still a lot to do. I think an apology is in order.

OK, false alarm, I think -- it looks like you can drill down and get more specific with permissions in Hubzilla, beyond the three categories they initially describe.
