meemu has a trello board to track what's coming and what's underway!

hey meemu users and meemu adjacent friends, April is meemu’s 5th birthday (and real life meemu’s almost-11th!). We’d like to celebrate, would y’all be interested in a meemu anniversary Jackbox game?

CSS Style For Identifying Undescribed Media 

Recently, several users expressed a desire for a way to quickly check if the images in the toot they were about to boost were described. It would be nice if Mastodon itself offered warnings for that, as well as for forgetting to describe media in your own posts, but until then, this is actually one problem admins can fix on our own!
All you need to do is go into the site settings and add a bit of CSS code that will display a red border around any undescribed media. There are two examples available, depending on how subtle or noticeable you want the border to be; experiment and see what you like!
Thanks to @IngaLovinde for thinking of the starting code and @FiXato for improving on it! They did all the work here; I am just sharing this along.
Open this post in a new tab and look at the image to see how this can look like. The example image is my avatar, described in another pinned post.

fediverse crawler 

Requesting a whole bunch of posts (user-agent is already in my bad bots list, so it's just getting HTTP 503 responses):

IP address: (RDNS
user-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; BLEXBot/1.0; +

Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.

something went amiss with the cert renewal but its back now F

#mastoadmin how many sidekiq jobs failing a day is "normal"

for some reason i have yet to discern my backup script doesnt always clean up after itself!! but i'll sort that out at some point

oops ran out of disk space for a sec!!! got it now

mild admin PSA 

#mastoadmin: here's a useragent string regex to block crawlers from a bunch of extremely scummy-looking SEO companies


Some of them have evidently been crawling posts from other people's masto profile pages because they keep hitting the same handful of mine with regularity. Consider burning these leeches off for your users' sake

going to spend some time this week getting us on to the latest version of mastodon, 3.3.0 <3

repostin' because I'm learning how to mastodon

This might be my favourite thing I painted this year c:

good cw etiquette 101:

-content warnings can totally be used to shorten/title posts! they don’t have to be for sensitive content

-plz use CWs for posts with possible triggers like alcohol, food, self harm, mental health, drug use, etc- we also cw for eye contact in photos here (ec)

-plz cw your lewd/nsfw content! there are kiddos here as well as sex repulsed folks

-cw stuff that can fuck with screenreaders like large blocks of repeating words or emoji spam

thx for makin fedi a safer place!

sorry, ran out of disk space for a sec x~x we're back now!
