 reminder: activation can't really begin until N months after software is released with the activation parameters. That N months needs to be enough time to be sure enough of the community has upgraded to it.

The quicker the community upgrades to 0.21 (or the upcoming 0.20.2 backport), the clearer it will be that a shorter timeframe can be used for activation!

Is DXY a scamcoin? Should it be allowed here?

Please select "no opinion" if you don't want to look up what DXY is.

What are some instances that I can recommend to non-bitcoiners?

How can I follow a user on another instance, if their instance's web interface doesn't have a follow button? :/

Is there a way to turn off browser notifications for toot favouriting?

What is with people moving to Parler? Seems like it's just as bad as Twitter... Why not here to Mastodon???
