Hey #MastoAdmins, just a reminder that the current version of #mastodon is v2.6.5. There are some great security and other misc updates. Make sure to upgrade incrementally and follow release notes here:
Thanks to all the developers, admins, moderators, etc who make this such a great community to be a part of
@slackz what you nmbeen hearin about the internal instance warefare recently? Is this still knzk getting attacked? (Also, thank you for the reminder to assemble a block list, sigh)
@Wewereseeds I'm not familiar with what's going on there. This was just a general PSA cause I just noticed I was a couple minor versions behind.
Sorry i haven't circles back to moderation block list stuff yet, still on my calendar. This weekend was pretty shitty / stressful :/
@slackz i getchu i'm not in a rush, the chuds will still be there
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 organizing.social, 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
