- Say that your code of conduct is just "use your best judgment".

- Realize that the concept of "best judgment" isn't universal and leaving it that way is a disastrous decision. Spend some time writing a code of conduct to make sure everyone can participate in your community safely. Think of effective ways to respond to incidents.

Be a good ally. This is exactly the kind of situation in which you have the power to make a positive change in your community.

it was a long walk and now this small dog is all worn out

Found the Bilhete Único card I bought last year (not personalized), I wonder if it still works? @mavica

I already packed my bags for Wednesday and I'm low-key having a fashion crisis.

When an eyelash, evolved to protect your eye, falls INTO your eye? The greatest betrayal

Something that would really change my life as a FOSS dev is that people stop seeing FOSS as a finished product but instead as a best effort collective work by people that are [in position off] contributing for free on their free personal time on it and gave it to you for free [when this situation apply].

Like stop saying that "this is total shit" because you had bugs or because it wasn't top 100% perfect like you want for your super edge case that it wasn't designed for -_-

Normalize quitting things. It could be school, work, relationships, hobbies, or pretty much anything.

Quitting is often thought of as inherently negative; nobody wants to be called a "quitter". But there are plenty of situations where not only is it reasonable, it's the *best* course of action.

You can drop out college or switch majors when you don't care about the thing you're studying. You can end a relationship when it becomes toxic. You can stop playing a game that you don't enjoy.

Oh my god we have a goose emoji?!?!?! :honk:

Can't believe I will meet @mavica again next week. <3

I rescheduled my test and was authorized to answer it in digital form!

Public display of affection? 

I also broke a bunch of links on our app this week. Oops.

I have a handful of redirects to do manually on GitBook and this ain't fun at all.

Today is my partner's last day at his stressful job. Soon he'll enjoy a few weeks of a well-deserved vacation and I couldn't be happier for him.

He's also planning to start working remotely! My mornings won't be as lonely as they usually are. :blobcatheart:

I wish there was an optional "Why I want to follow you" entry field. I just don't understand why some people would want to follow me here, and I'm too cautious to let everyone in.

What sucks the most is, this isn't the first time something like that happens to me... And it won't be the last.

They apologized and will contact me to schedule another date and time for my test. This was kind of an awkward situation because the actual professor is currently traveling and the person who is supervising us was so embarrassed. 😬

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on and then as another user on * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other users, and only ever @ mention other users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email.
