MSP Social has implemented the following features that are not in the official Mastodon codebase:

Local-only toots
"Request an invitation" button
Described-image indicator icon
500 character bios
Minnesota-flavored error messages

There's more to do, but honestly I'm impressed we've gotten this much with a non-coder admin.

Thanks to the coders that have contributed code and github-expertise: @ecogeek @divergentdave @iangreenleaf @brandon @renatolond

Just had a kind of mind blowing realization:

Vanilla is the garlic of baking.

Crowdsource help please. Anyone know anyone who has a spare projector I could borrow for half the day tomorrow?

I'm giving a training on caucuses and conventions as Saint Paul has a convention this year and I'm not sure the location of the training has AV equip.


I think this may be my favorite moment in television. Hits you right in the feels.

If you hear of someone in the working class getting better pay or benefits than you for their labor, your reaction shouldn't be "they don't deserve it, they should suffer like me," it should be "I deserve what they have."

...and then to recognize that they reason they get more than you is because they're in a union...

Remember when programming used to be all women and their code got us to the moon? Lets go back to that.

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.

Recurring contributors: @hfrazey, @brennen@mastodon.social, @Jennybellium, @densetsu, @iangreenleaf, @britvulcan, @joeld, @yeahno, @paulference, @billmk, @brandon, @benjotron, @june @wafflesoup and anonymous.
