@picamanic @proactiveservices Hey, the UI is definitely very focused on writing 😅 But you can also find the Log Out option when you hover over your username on other pages 🙂

There's also a pricing page here: write.as/pricing

If you need any help or have any questions, I'm always happy to help!

@gytis @writeas_dev That looks really cool!

If other people are interested in it (maybe start a forum topic?), I definitely think it'd be worth adding. The text-based nature of it definitely aligns with the platform 😊

@RantingWordsmith @wordsmith In case you need one, I run Write.as, which is a free, writer-focused blogging platform. So not hard to maintain, and no character limit.

But they work well together -- you can even follow your blog directly from this community, e.g. mine @micromatt. But of course any platform should do!

Hey @RantingWordsmith! The only real reason is that 500 is the default for Mastodon (the software powering this community), and it really is just made for "microblogging".

Unfortunately we don't have a ton of control over this with the way we're set up, so I'd agree with @wordsmith that using this alongside a blog is probably best.

Was gifted an old Lenovo Yoga with Windows 8.1 on it. I have enough Linux machines already; can I do anything interesting with this one?

Woke up to sub-70° air outside and I instantly feel better, like I can relax and finally breathe again. Endless summers have done nothing good for my mind. For some reason I crave a long winter, gray skies and cold.

@June @maloki Hi! At the moment, Snap.as is pretty closely linked with Write.as, our hosted WriteFreely instance. So if you wanted to use it for image hosting, for now you can get it by paying for Write.as/Pro.

That would give you everything on @write_as, but you could always just use it for the @snap_as side (and know you're helping fund @writefreely development too 🙂).

Otherwise, WF will have built-in support for images in the future! We're just still working out the details.

@lightone @ademalsasa Thanks for correcting that! That's right 🙂

I'm thinking of moving our documentation to a more purpose-built platform / site generator, instead of the custom one we have now on writefreely.org/docs.

Ideally, we'd switch to a tool that supports Markdown (current docs: github.com/writefreely/documen), and allows people to search.

Any recommendations?

@dajbelshaw Really great way to put it!

Makes me think of it as:
Nouns = passive, directed by convention
Verbs = active, directing
