Pinned toot

Hello, everyone! If you've been following @maloki for updates on the ongoing effort to , then you may be happy to know that we had our first meeting on Saturday and are still planning out governance and infrastructure before the project "officially" starts.

If you're looking to follow the progress of the fork, or you're looking to get involved, follow here for updates!

Ok, it's time shape Funkwhale's future, in terms of moderation and anti-abuse tools!

We can and will reuse tools from existing projects, but there are also things we'll have to work out ourselves.

If you want to be a part of that, the whole discussion will take place here: code.eliotberriot.com/funkwhal
(you can answer this post as well but please read the issue before!)

Take the time you need to read / contribute. the issue will remain for at least a few weeks before any implementation happens.

A friendly reminder that the #ForkTogether project is basically run by a bunch of spoonies at this stage.

If you're interested in helping move things along, feel free to reach out to @lightdark and @Satsuma or @paulference and they'll probably be able to introduce you to the rest of the group, and help you find a place you can help out!

#ForkOff

CORRECTION TO OUR PREVIOUS POST:

We're not voting on the bylaws, yet. We're still researching a location (either Holland or Norway) and need to finalise a name for the project.

You can help by taking a look at our current bylaws and providing feedback! forktogether.space/mw/Bylaws

Please message us with your comments!

Here are the results of my recent survey of Mastodon users. :) The bits about gender and race are particularly interesting, I think!

#meta

You can get access to the @forktogether discord by asking @clar or @PaulFerence

You can get an account on our wiki by talking to @woozle or @ryliejamesthomas

If you want to help, but aren’t sure what needs being done, ask in the discords #general channel or check forktogether.space/mw/Help:Wan (if you have a project you’re working on for #forktogether and need help, feel free to post in both of those places as well!)

Here’s a survey about the social network #Mastodon. You are invited to take part regardless of your level of involvement or how often you use it or how long you've been here.

I don’t work for them, I’m just curious.

@eliotberriot @forktogether thanks! We’re in theory gonna pick a different name and therefore logo eventually but at this point we’ve had both a while so inertia might end up winning :)

@forktogether Hey there, I just wanted to tell out loud how much I love your logo. It is so cute!

@forktogether
Suggestions:
Ability to translate toots inline.
Ability to block an entire instances from federating your toots. (Like I want my toot to only be seen on X,Y,Z instances and not TechBroSphere or something)
Ability to ONLY post to my instance. (Glitch-Soc I think has this already)
Ability to post a toot publicly where you can block all replies, or some replies. (Sometimes you need to vent and don't want DudeBros sliding into your replies)

Hey, everyone!

Right now, I (@clar) am working on actually listing down all of the features that we deem "important" for the fork. This way, even though we don't have any formal sense of what's prioritised, at least we have something vague written down.

If you have any specific things you'd like to mention or clarify, please feel free to reply to this toot with your thoughts!

I'm having trouble remembering everything, as there's quite a lot. The current list: forktogether.space/mw/Requirem

We're also still working on the code of conduct, which you can find at forktogether.space/mw/Code_of_ and discussing what the future infrastructure for the #forkoff project should look like (general consensus seems to be open source as much as possible, but we haven't worked out exactly what will fit our needs yet)

So if you'd like to help with either of those, please do! The discord is at: discordapp.com/invite/T2BeU2Q

& you can message @woozle or @ryliejamesthomas for an account on the wiki

During today's @forktogether meeting we elected a team of four people (me, @Laurelai @e and @hoodie ) to head the work on the bylaws, since very little had gone done with the previous method of disorganized volunteerism but we're still taking suggestions from members of the provisional #forktogether organization (anyone who's attended a meeting, done work on the wiki, or helped in the discord work groups)

You can read the current draft of the bylaws here: forktogether.space/mw/Bylaws

Just finished our second meeting! Thank you to all who participated. 😊

Meeting minutes will be up later this week.

Hey, all! The meeting is coming up in about five hours! If you're interested in checking out what happened at the last meeting: forktogether.space/mw/Minutes/

I'm handing off the discord for the meeting space etc to @clar and @Satsuma as admins.

They did wonderful with moderation during the meeting, and got bumped to admin after, because I needed to hand this project off after a month of intense work.

Thank you everyone who's been supportive of me in this process, it's been a rough month, but also fantastic.

Now I need some well deserved rest, and going forth I'll dedicate about 1hr to the project a day, until I catch up

If you're specifically interested in what's going to happen next meeting, the agenda is up here: forktogether.space/mw/Agendas/

Hello, everyone! A quick on the upcoming meeting for the fork.

The meeting will take place tomorrow (Sunday, 8th July) at 7 PM UTC.

The meeting will be done via Discord. This is currently the most accessible option for now, although we are planning to move to another system like Matrix later. You can join the Discord here: discord.gg/T2BeU2Q

This account is managed by @clar and @Satsuma. You can message either of us for questions.

@Magess Currently the project name is @forktogether

And hopefully the meeting this meeting will get to decide the name. If not we'll wait another week.

You can now follow @forktogether for any #ForkTogether updates, and you can mute that account if you don't want to read about it at all!

Other previous official hashtags have been #ForkOff and #ForkOffTogether.

Keep Calm and #ForkOn!
Stay strong! 💪🏻💪🏼💪🏽💪🏾💪🏿
