:masto: Hey!

I know I'm a Void & I usually don't meddle in human biz, but would it be possible if you amazing artists & other imagery creators/sharers could use the image description feature?

Just writing something descriptive like "drawing of a bunch of unicorns" would be a great help for people who use screen readers!

:fediverse: If you already do this but sometimes forget, @PleaseCaption is a cool bot that only follows you if you follow it first & it reminds you to caption your images! <3

Long intro: 

Should I do one of those toots?

I mean, I think everyone knows about me & that there are no needed, but ok...

Hi, I'm the void!

I like to stare back at rude people who just stare at me for no reason.

Then I end up falling in love with them and understand they weren't being rude. They were just curious about me.

But then I get heartbroken, because who wants to go home with the void to meet parents, right?

*sigh*

Sorry, this turned out to be sad...

Giveaway Results!!! (aka: We have a winner who we've also already verified to be +18. Wooohooo!!!) 

We're really excited about this! :D

> We won't keep the suspense long, but before we announce them we'll explain our randomization process so our prints creen will leave no doubts to anyone about who won:
- We gave each entry a number in the comments and pulled those numbers and names into a spreadsheet;
- We then used random.org's sequence feature to randomize the order of those entries;
- After that we used the standard random.org process to get ourselves a winner!

**The person who'll get home an Orange Pi and some extra tech goodies at home is: @alyxmaia**

📣 PSA 📣

Quick update.

----------

We've received a lot of support for receiving funding form the Arm foundation.

***As much as we'd ❤️ that to be true... we have received zero funding to date from Arm (or any other company for that matter).***

----------

The Works on Arm initiative granted us access to a HiSilicon based Arm server provided by Packet.com. That's the only things we've received as part of our sponsorship.

We do acknowledge the hardware we have access to is non-trivial, amazing and we're using it to the fullest extent possible. 😄

----------

Our current financial situation is:

We have 2 backers on our Open Collective and that is the full extent of our incoming dollars and cents. ($55 / mo before fees, both backers signed up in early February 2019). To date the project has been fiscally supported by the founders own money.

Hi! It's hard to describe in a sentence, so I've been sharing some stuff under these hashtags that may help non-voids to understand VoidCulture!

Thanks for asking! :star_eyes:

Lets take a moment to talk about the many faces of Activity Pub (this network) 

Mastodon wants to replace twitter (some of their warts and all)

Pleroma wants to empower communities and users by building a great platform for "the socials" that has a STRONG focus on safety (I promise, there are some amazing features like MRF which are not widely known or understood). Think bulletin boards / forums in a very very broad sense.

Pixelfed is slowly building federation support to take on Instagram

Plume is a blogging engine that leverages the network for comments and sharing of content (Tumblr alternative)

PeerTube is hoping to take on YouTube

FunkWhale is inspired by grooveshark and wants you to get your groove going

PInafore is a lean, mean UI that's pretty

Halcyon is a tweet deck alternative

we have a couple CLI UI's as well

We have some tools that auto-delete posts after a timeout

We have some tools that cross post rss feed articles as posts

We have a LOT of developers from ALL over that are doing some really cool things.

This network isn't just a singular instance OR experience. It's the human condition of many views upon a topic expressed in a technical form.

About #Trunk: a still fairly recent project to help people (especially newbies) populate their home timelines with people who have common interests and "volunteered as tribute"! 

#NewHere and/or in look of more people to follow?

Besides checking the Introductions hashtags + the Local & Federated Timeline and meddle in the conversations, you can also use #Trunk!

Check it out at: communitywiki.org/trunk/ - its goal is "to connect newbies with people" by allowing "you to follow a bunch of people in order to get started with (...) the Fediverse."

If you click on one of the lists in there, you'll see a page full of people that volunteered to be on it, which is based on interests and/or identities.

You can follow the list; opt to follow just one by one, or just move along to the next list and check it out.

For example, there's a list called Friendly People. Another called Open Education, one for FLOSS, and you even have Clown in there! 😋

@TheVoid a note about IOS apps: I use Tootdon for most of my browsing/tooting but I can’t figure out how to add image descriptions in the app. I keep Amaroq installed to post images with descriptions.

:masto: Hey!

I know I'm a Void & I usually don't meddle in human biz, but would it be possible if you amazing artists & other imagery creators/sharers could use the image description feature?

Just writing something descriptive like "drawing of a bunch of unicorns" would be a great help for people who use screen readers!

Feeling a bit lonely around here, within myself.

You know this Voideness feels kinda day, right?
