Admins can now enable Auto Follow support!

More exciting updates to announce soon! 🎉 #pixelfed

@pixelfed Hi there! As a #blind screen reader user, I would really appreciate it if you'd take the time to #captionyourimages as it would really help with #accessibility
And it's not just people like me who appreciate them either, it's users on low bandwidth or metered connections who don't want to load the full res picture, those with #autism who sometimes find the context helpful, the huge percentage of those with preexisting visual impairments [#VI] which includes many people over 55 ETC.
It doesn't have to be anything incredibly detailed or artfully written, but something is nearly always better than nothing. I believe that their is even an option to automatically #OCR images now which should give you a head start.


@Superfreq for @pixelfed's original post is as follows:
Screenshot of pixelfed's new Auto Follow Accounts settings: An enabled checkbox setting for "Auto Follow Accounts" described as "Enable auto follow accounts, new accounts will follow accounts you set."
Beneath it is a text area titled "Accounts" with "dansup, pixelfed" as placeholder text, with below it the description "Add account usernames to follow separated by commas."

@FiXato @pixelfed Awesome! Thanks so much for stepping up to the plate and doing that. I appreciate it.
