Pinned toot

Hello. I am @bixmediocre, and this is mostly meant to serve as support account for my invite-only instance, Write House.

Some combination of my appreciation for minimalism and fond memories of being around during the early days of blogging somehow led me to start playing around on @write_as, which led to this.

(I myself tend to blog about being , mixed in with random pop culture and occasional layman's tech stuff.)

Done! All instances are now up-to-date on #WriteFreely v0.10.0 :writefreely2:

This update brings plenty of fixes, instance-wide privacy, and the ability to customize your landing page!

Read the full list of changes on the @writefreely blog: blog.writefreely.org/version-0

Coming in v0.10: more control over your home page! As the admin of a multi-user instance, you'll be able to:

* Change the content of the home page (as seen here: pencil.writefree.ly)

* Change the default page that non-users land on (e.g. instead of the home page, it could be your About page, or a specific blog)

Having trouble deciding how I feel about this, but perhaps because it’s not very clear at all how this specifically affects development of the various things we still need to make Write House happen.

The progress toward opening up for members (invite-only by me, at first) will be slow.

I'm going to take some time to get more fully used to the system myself, and I might wait until the eventual v1.0, depending.

I'll be building out the site copy in the meantime, bit by bit (those parts of it I can modify, anyway).

Still working on the specifics of the code of conduct.

So I am trying to make some decisions about the code of conduct for @writehouse and it’ll be based either on the Community Covenant community-covenant.net/version or the @xoxo Code of Conduct github.com/xoxo/conduct or some combination. Thoughts?

Thanks to @writefreelyhost for the quick turnaround from order placement to instance setup!

We aren’t open for our initial invite-only members yet, but I’ve started up my own blog with the posts I’d previous had at @write_as while I was testing out the platform.

Sorry to do this but days later I see the typo in my intro post and it’s bothering me. Re-posting.
