@jakob Nope, just moving at the pace of one person, since I'm the only one working on it (@matt) 🙂

@Janetgunter @dentangle Those descriptions should show up as alt text! Though sometimes certain characters can mess up the parsing, leading to no alt text at all.

In this case, it might be the colon after "my email", based on the markdown I'm seeing here: janetgunter.net/links.txt

We've fixed the issue and put in protections to make sure it doesn't happen again. But if you've run into issues, please send us a DM or email us: write.as/contact

We'll be around all weekend responding to people and working to fix accounts quickly.

We found a very critical issue with our spam detection system that led to many people being marked as abusive users if they had a gmail address on their account. It seems to have started around June 24.

Truly sorry to everyone who's been affected by this.

@cregox Unfortunately this is a shortcoming of ... @writefreely sends out an "Update" event but Mastodon does nothing about it.

@devinprater A blank line after headings should work fine! Did you run into some issues with it?

Oh wow, @write_as is even cooler than I thought! People can now subscribe to my blog as an email newsletter! Just go to write.as/devinprater, put in your email address in the edit field at the bottom, and hit subscribe! You can also download my entire blog as an EPUB, but I can't find where to do that yet. And you can comment, using remark.as! So yeah I might just use this alone and just not bother with Medium.

Haven't done this in a while, but I'd like to get a sense of what's most important to everyone as we head into the summer. Are you happy with the platform? What planned feature development should we prioritize?

Please share your thoughts in our latest survey (and sorry for the Google form!): forms.gle/acgit3Z2QCTv2vjx9
