Was thinking about image description text... it actually took a long time for me to realize that one can add image description text (separate from CW text). It's a little hidden cause you have to click on img to see text input box there

What if upon img upload, input text for description is immediately the focus? I think this would increase ppls' use of it significantly and thus improve accessibility

Happy to file a github issue for if folks agree and this hasn't already been raised

Ppl have def filed similar issues. Glad it's being discussed and hope UI improvements there happen soon. Very glad this functionality is there and it isn't just limited cw text and fighting with char limits

OrgSpace

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
