The flagship instance seems to be open to new accounts again, so I'm moving there. :)

@aral the fact that it's also free software respects us on a whole other level too –we're not commodities here.

@ohyran I know several folks who are into toot blockers.

@hbons it seems to only show the accounts from your instance that follow a given account. The web version has an asterisk to note this, the iOS app (Amaroq) doesn't, I dunno about Android.

@bashfulrobot I know, but the issue of bad user experience still stands.

@gabrielelucci thanks, I draw all the mockups I do in Inkscape.

@ohyran well, of course the context of the competition does matter.

@shellkr I see what you did there. But regarding the logo, competitions are not good ways to do design.

@ohyran I enjoy the process as much as the result (maybe even more so) including the part where I defend or debate the design. :)

@rcmainak @Gargron I'd likely change it to a more conventional icon if implemented, permit me some whimsy in my mock-up. ;)

@ohyran @frd I know. But you're ruining my fun with the icons. ;) I'll likely use a common metaphor in the end if they get adopted.

@Gargron oh, haha. I look forward to it. Anyway, in the mock-up, I designed some icons to be less reliant on Twitter's design language (like the change to the boost icon) and to fit within their displayed size for clarity.

@Gargron I went about making some custom icons to show you what I meant by "tailored icons". 🙂

@mjd Mastodon is already establishing a new vocabulary with Toots and boosts.

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on and starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
