honestly though, mastodon instances are run and moderated by real people who care about the network, to the point of often paying their own money out-of-pocket to run their instances.
the *one* time i've had to report a post, my instance admin messaged me directly to let me know the action taken about it.
don't be shy to report. it works here. the rules aren't there just to keep things advertiser-friendly.
welcome to mastodon. don't be a dick. hug your local mods/admins.
@funkwhale how can I add multiple stars/likes/faves to this? Ah ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Sooooo happy to ready that Free Music Archive is staying online and functional and going forward!!!
"In the coming weeks, we will reopen artist/curator uploads and our Music Submission form and resume our regularly scheduled audio weirdness, curated playlist posts, and new releases here on our blog."
If someone tells you they're suffering from depression and you'd like to make them feel better, choose *any* topic other than their work or hobby accomplishments. They're probably finding it really hard to work on those, so you're pointing out that their merits as a human being center on a current failing.
Even if it's someone you only know through their work, there's plenty of encouragement and warmth to be shared by complimenting their past conduct, openness or kindness.
@malerbabomba surely not. i just think that it seems to me that people who talk about cultural appropriation might actually be talking about capitalist exploitation and commodification of everything - heritage of indigenous peoples included. i feel that there's a border where culture stops and there's only pure unethical inhuman commerce left.
but, maybe I'm wrong, since I haven't encountered and researched too many cases where there's been strong accusation of cultural appropration.
@malerbabomba reminded me of:
@deadsuperhero really looking forward to this!
WeDistribute Update - Looking for Wordpress Designer Show more
I've been sort of dragging my feet recently due to being spread a little bit thin. There are some outstanding issues with my frontend theme, and while I could try to tackle it on my own, I would really like to launch #WeDistribute before the year ends.
If there's anyone in the fediverse that specializes in #WordPress frontend development, please let me know! I would be willing to pay you for your work, and plug your portfolio.
