Anyway to find out what number user I was?
I hope Bluesky continues to grow and also NOT become a dumpsterfire like Twitter was (and still is)
When can we use gifs?
Sir! How absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for giving us an alternative to the site-that-shall-not-be-named. I managed to import nearly all the regular contributors to the Mystery Jukebox, a small but well loved Saturday music-sharing thing. I couldn't have done it without you. 🤗🤩
About deletion - but first, thanks for your incredible communicativeness, it's a big plus of this platform - I heard something on a German podcast about deleted posts not actually being completely deleted but still existing somewhere at some level. Was that accurate and if so is it going to change?
yeah but on mastodon every post you make has to go through the Terms and Conditions of every single entitled autist's personal neuroses and you'll still have people crying about a picture of a beetle you did all their stupid warnings for so like, maybe don't brag about how full a toilet is
I am autistic. My wife is autistic. We're also both actually physically disabled, too, and trauma survivors. There's a pretty fat line between ableism and not tolerating obsessive control-freak behavior from a self-insulating esotericism-centric community.
Is that linus techtips european name?????
There's about 150 million on Threads. Userbase size is hardly indicative of the quality of a platform. 🤷 (That, and there are *zero* instances of *anything* on the Fediverse which can actually interact with accounts on *every* other instance. It's just not a thing.)
Internet needs a Dorseybot, lol. I wonder how many people from bsky actually go to mastodon to make an account and be like bsky is better... I know most people here tried masto and were like - too complicated, too many restrictions, too many people telling I'm doing everything wrong.
I had accounts on multiple Masto servers, before bsky was even taking signups in 2022. It was kind of a pain in the ass, even though I was fine with the "drink from the firehose to find content" deal. Each instance was been deleted by their owners with no chance to move my account.
> too complicated uh, i think email and phone are complicated too > too many restrictions if you are talking about the fact that you can’t be a xenophobe and discriminate against other people on independent grounds... Why didn't you stay on twitter? Or didn't go to truth social?
Are you on mastodon
"Private Browser Window" does no "remember" any settings you have on the non-private version of the same window. But you can sign in on that private window. The App - Blue Sky is a public app, meaning, anything we do here is open to the public. I heard DMs are coming... I am not sure when
The situation is confusing. Unlike other sm platforms, "private list or forums" do not exist. In THIS way, Blue Sky (Bluetopia) is 100% public -so far. However the correct answer to your question, is "no" one has to be a BSky and be logged into the app to see posts.
FAQ Bluesky is a public social network. Think of your posts as blog posts – anyone on the web can see them, even those without an invite code. An invite code simply grants access to the service we’re running that lets you publish a post yourself.
It's user accounts, not users of course. For instance, some people have alts, even a lot of alts in some cases! There are about 500,000 user accounts active every day according to this stats site, that's a better measure of activity, but total accounts milestones are fun 😁🎉 bsky.jazco.dev/stats
We use the dot . for thousands grouping and the colon , as decimal fraction separator. Others use ' for thousands grouping and then there are cultures, were the grouping is different altogether (like India with lakh and crore instead of thousands: 1,23,45,678) en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal...
