I wish Mastodon didn't look so cramped on my vertical monitor :'( I really want just one column with all toots, and then a separate page for notifications, similar to Twitter or GitHub. Filed github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ and we'll see where that might take us...

@jonhoo may I ask you why you select `mastodon.at` among other hosts?

@alishir I did a bit of digging with instances.social/; I wanted a host that had A+ TLS and from the observatory, that was kept up-to-date with upstream Mastodon, and that was opinionated about moderation (e.g., no Nazism) without being too restrictive (e.g., no nsfw). mastodon.at seems to be well managed, has a good ToS which moderates highly toxic content while generally being liberal about what content is permitted. It's also large enough that it's unlikely to go away :) /cc @pfigel


@jonhoo @alishir well, our bus factor is still 1, but I guess as long as I stay away from busses, we shouldn't be going away anytime soon. :blobgrin:

(Regarding the single-column thing, you might enjoy Pinafore's UI! We have an instance running at light.mastodon.at/, or you can use the one hosted by the creator at pinafore.social/).

@pfigel Oooh, Pinafore looks like exactly what I wanted — thanks! Bus factor of 1 is unfortunate, but I'll take my chances with it for now ;)

@pfigel @jonhoo thanks I just unpinned mastodon.at and pinned light.mastodon.at :)
