We're finally taking care of all the non-technical work needed on Write.as, like better help documentation and minor annoying bugs / missing pieces.

For example, we're putting all our help on (fittingly) a Write.as blog, howto.write.as, and then linking to that site from various places in the application. (Previously, we might've linked to an old Help page from 2015 or guides.write.as.)

Hopefully this makes everything much easier to use!

Anyone running #WriteFreely via Docker, by any chance?

I'd like to deploy it to one of my VPSes, but everything is running there in Docker, wouldn't want to set up WriteFreely + deps outside.

(Boosts appreciated)

Excited to support #ActivityPub mentions in #WriteFreely! (In progress here: writefreely.org/pull/195)

So far it works great with #Pleroma, but #Mastodon doesn't support mentions in the Articles we send out (only Notes). So we've opened an issue to fix this: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

You may see a "deceptive site" warning when navigating to HTML.house right now. We've removed the problematic page and notified Google, so hopefully this should go away soon.

In the meantime, you can click "Details" and "visit this unsafe site" in Chrome (or "ignore the risk" in Firefox).
