#RFC: #FreeCoop should be a platform to organize small worker #coop

The platform should provide features to:
- Add new members
- Hold elections and votes
- Find tasks for the coop to complete.
- Decide on how members are payed.
- Remove members

I currently plan to only develop the #IRV scheme for votes - but if there is a desire for other voting schemes or more variability on the kind of groups FreeCoop should enable, I'd be happy to develop those too.


If finally happened. My wife can brush off the worst of assholes normally but not this one. Some sexist asshole moved in on her normal running route and has been harassing women so badly she that has to change her route. It’s also our normal walking route but, conveniently, he’s always out when and only when some women go by alone so I’ve never seen him.

God I fucking hate Florida.

85% of Europeans believe that the EU should reduce its dependency on Russian gas and oil as soon as possible to support Ukraine.

With the #REPowerEU plan, we can do it.

It will step up Europe's energy security and independence and mobilise up to €300 billion.

In the Toot! app on iOS, is there a way to disable the shimmer effect on favorited toots? It bothers my eyes.

Are you using Mastodon through a computer?

Do you wish there was a multi-column TweetDeck-style interface?

There is! It's called the "advanced web interface" and you can activate it any time you want. It lets you add many specialised columns, subscribe to hashtags and all kinds of stuff suited to large wide displays.

Log into the website, go to Preferences > Enable Advanced Web Interface, tick the box and click "Save Changes".

(To restore the default single column interface, do the same thing but untick the box instead.)

This used to be the default interface on Mastodon, and very old articles about the platform will have screenshots of the multicolumn interface.

I'm not taking over the project by any means. This is my way of encouraging others to take up the torch and make it thrive. 🙂

The @nextcloud Mail app got some updates. The editor is much better and it generally feels more snappy.

However, now I cannot manually enter the From e-mail address for some reason, so I cannot use my mail aliases as sender's address.


“why doesn’t it just work?” asks the person who has never thought about what is required to make it work, or even formulated a meaningful definition of “works”.
