Hi all, just a heads up that you'll probably soon notice I'm on a different instance! Todon.eu is a server I've always loved (Todon.nl was the first one I joined, around six or seven years ago!) and are a little smaller than Kolektiva, who have had their share of problems with breaches, defederation, and moderation. I appreciate them having me for so long, and value the efforts of folks there, some very good people, but my personal and political needs and expectations from an instance are now different. Usual transmission will resume shortly! Thanks.

Last RT - I actually don't even know what a Peertube is, but I assume some of you wise kids might be able to point them in the right direction.

"Is Kolektiva.media the only explicitly leftist/anarchist instance?"

MediaActivist,

@AnarchoNinaWrites Thank you!

Is Kolektiva.media the only explicitly leftist/anarchist #PeerTube instance?

MediaActivist,

@noondlyt @AnarchoNinaWrites Thank you!

MediaActivist,

@ch0ccyra1n Thanks, that sounds awesome but yes every time I looked into it and I think I've figured it out it's been the sheer expense that put me off!

MediaActivist,

@sparky Oh shit that's awesome, thanks!

MediaActivist,

@DavBot Thanks for this! Nifty content policy you have there for sure!

Any recommendations of Mastodon instances for a person (and profile!) like yours truly? Of course, as an explicitly anarchist instance, users of this server like myself accept that there will be good people making bad mistakes. I'm aware there was the breach issue, and also the disconnect with Firefish (for whatever reason), but this makes me concerned for Kolektiva: https://blackqueer.life/@tillshadeisgone/111144277933654132

MediaActivist,

@rybson I used to have an account on there, several years ago, and people grew weary of my numerous accounts on different servers haha, so eventually I settled on Kolektiva, who also run the Peertube server I'm compiling my old media activism archives on. But I've always absolutely loved Todon's code of conduct omg!

MediaActivist,

@skuppr We will, my friend! Maybe Todon?

MediaActivist,

@skuppr I actually always found a lot of their rules were in many ways more thorough and impressive than Kolektiva's but you're right, unless there is an improvement on what we're using now, there's no point.

MediaActivist,

@skuppr Good point. I was on .nl years ago but .eu seems pretty badass fwiw.

MediaActivist,

@skuppr I realised that never answered your question haha, I presume .nl was set up as a Netherlands-specific server, and .eu is broader. I just checked and blackqueer.life restricted kolektiva but not todon, which may be a good sign?

MediaActivist,

@skuppr Awesome!

Whoah what happened? Both my follows and followers have decreased at the same time by about a dozen.

MediaActivist,

@stephanie That's what I was wondering too! I'll have to look into it. Thanks!

MediaActivist,

@AntimonySchnuck Thanks for this. It's disconcerting.

Hey folx in England! Interested in utilising film to vocalise issues important to trans and non-binary people? I'm on the board for E.D.E.N. Film Productions, and they're running another Transforming Cinema project - there's just under a week left to apply to take part! More info on the website: https://www.edenfilm.co.uk/2023/09/transforming-cinema-film-project/

MediaActivist,

I'm hoping E.D.E.N. Film Productions will be on Mastodon soon. Show them the community is here! And feel free to recommend any servers for such an LGBTQ+ .

"The average human can name about 1,500 people, and we personally know about 500.¹

But most of those people won't help us in times of need.

The people who will help are our friends – and psychologist Robin Dunbar argues that we have an average of 150 people who we try to stay in touch with.² Within that group, we have about 15 friends and family we contact each month and one to two people with whom we share an intimate relationship – often a partner, and sometimes a "best friend forever.""

MediaActivist,

@antiaall3s Ahh yes! I agree, there can be the illusion of popularity on social media; I know folks who feel really isolated in the pandemic questioning themselves because all their Facebook "friends" are seemingly having a great time in cafes, restaurants, bars, and things, and yet meanwhile on here there are like-minded people staying true to science and principles, and that can be very helpful. We often "become the company we keep."

MediaActivist,

@olliethewobbly Not as far as I'm aware, but apparently they're aware, taking it seriously, and investigating. Hopefully he's toast!
