Introducing the #Mastodon Server Covenant: Changes to the joinmastodon.org server picker
Take a fucking bow, folks.
I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.

We don't have an official #Inkscape account on Mastodon, but I don't want y'all to miss out on the love. We just announced 0.92.3 here: https://inkscape.org/en/news/2018/03/22/announcing-0923-release-inkscape/

My friend @prokoudine has a new post up on Libre Graphics World on the state of mastering Inkscape and learning tools that is well worth your time to check out!
Also, don't forget to help support his efforts through his patreon! (https://www.patreon.com/prokoudine)

Use the moment to be educated, educate others, and embrace the growth of open source in all its shapes and forms.Sometimes it will feel messy, weird, even chaotic.
