Like, you can't even click to view. Why is it there? I mean I understand the design consideration of remjndi g user that filter is in place and it's hiding content, but there should at least be a flag preference about whether it's actually visible or not.

The whole pt for a csrtain use case is too reduce noise. This is wayyyyyy too noisy. I will absolutely put out a pr if this hasn't been suggested, but I doubt that. Don't have spoons rn to dig thru github and check

Oof, really wish didn't show a bunch of "filtered" messages with toots filtered. The UI is great for creating filters. Context, etc is very useful granularity.

But the whole point of a filter is to hide stuff. If the UI shows a reminder of all the content ur hiding and clutters up the tl, it defeats so much of the purpose.

If anybody knows if this has been implemented on a fork of the project, but otherwise might take a crack at doing that, cause this seems suboptimal

prisons, politics Show more

Someone just posted this but I think it might have been deleted so I'll spread the sentiment.

The is an amazing project but we need to better leverage its potential for political change.

I'm not gonna go through the urgent list of horrors we face globally, but damn y'all, what are our plans to meaningfully address this on a large scale?

This isn't sanctimony or shaming. I'm in the same boat we all are

How do we turn the into a more effective political organizing space?

@interneteh it def isnt. Pretty tired of cat gifs when we need to be organizing / taking strategic action.

Let's up the political pulse in here :)

Currently "Who Am I?" from .

From the original Broadway version of the play based on the novel by Victor Hugo.

Everything about this track opens my soul wide open.

Looking for Romantic tragedies (plays, opera, novels, etc.) from any time period. I’m outlining a dialogue-heavy satire about a cat who is turned into a man and must navigate a human dinner party, and am aiming for flowery, archaic language that contrasts with a modern setting.

I’m starting with Shakespeare’s tragedies and will happily watch and/or read any recommendations. Questions welcome. Boosts will be blessed 🖋📚☕️

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.

Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.

Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
