I'm Amber, I'm a trans woman living and working in Dublin, as a software developer for a video game studio that shall remain unnamed.
I run the gravitas.cafe instance, @ me if you have any thoughts/opinions/concerns/requests about the instance, or have any questions about how the Fediverse do, I'll do my best to help out.

They did surgery on my grapes.
It looks like I've got about 6GB of cached avatars stored on my Mastodon instance. This is by far the largest usage of space other than the media cache, does anyone know a good way to trim/prune this similar to the remote media purge? There's no way my instance sees 6GB worth of avatars on a regular basis.
surgery mention, coming out Show more
Ok did the thing. Turns out it was the first time that I've come out to anyone who doesn't already have in-depth knowledge of trans issues, which I hadn't realised before.
Yes, she asked about surgery. Yes, I deflected it and told her that was super personal.
No I am not looking forward to answering that question 500 more times over the next few months.

For gravitas.cafe friends Show more
Local instance friends, I'm thinking of setting up a Google Form for other folks to apply to join the instance, and advertise it a bit. Are y'all comfortable with that, or would you rather it remain a more exclusive space?
You're also all welcome to invite your friends to join whenever you want, there should be an "Invite People" link in the Getting Started section.

Alright, it's a new day, we hit 151k jobs in Sidekiq yesterday (5th December). Reminder that's up from only around 20k on the 3rd. Relays, man, they're some shit.
I shouldn't need to say this, but if you see a celebrity and disagree with them being here: don't harass them. Don't justify harassing them. Don't go down the slippery slope of "they're famous so it's ok."
We've been through that before and it's not cool, and even resulted in unrelated trans people being harassed for trying to facilitate. Please let's not do that again.
no matter what community you're on if you need help getting around here it's a good idea to tag your admin(s) or include a screenshot if possible
your community may be using their own customized variants of mastodon or even other software such a pleroma with different features & apps
sometimes when folks from other communities are trying to help you out they might not notice which software or variant your community runs
Small, friendly Mastodon community. A safe, comfortable place for people of any shape, ability or gender.
