as for the remakes they look to be pretty close to the originals, with some additions. They might be the most faithful remakes yet, and while some can view this as disappointing + not be fans of the art style, I’m glad we’re getting them at all. D/P/Pt are probably some of the best (at least among my favorites) Pokémon games, so games carbon-copied on them can’t possibly be bad, even if they aren’t groundbreaking, I’ll gladly experience Sinnoh again through them
If you have Twitter I cannot recommend you enough to follow James Turner, designer at Game Freak and art director for Pokémon Sword and Shield, his art is so delightfully cute just looking at it is enough to cheer me up https://twitter.com/JamesTurner_42
Why does the official iOS app for Mastodon not work for donphan.social? (2/3)
is too much for me to humanly manage. As such, it is not something that I intend to fix.
Please note that only sign-ups are affected, if you already created or create an account outside of the app, you can still sign onto it.
With that said, another reason that I am not particularly pressed to remediate to this issue is the fact that the official Mastodon iOS app does not implement the local timeline or posting on the "unlisted" privacy level, which is a vision of Mastodon that clashes with small and/or themed servers, such as donphan.social, where the Local timeline is the lifeblood of the community and an easy way to find people with common interests and who signed up on the website for the same reasons as you.

Hey there! Your instance admin with some sort of official statement concerning the compatibility of the official iOS Mastodon with donphan.social
So, after having a friend test it for me, creating an account on donphan.social with the official iOS app does not work, as this error shows up.
The technical reason behind this is that the server is running a customized version of a Mastodon fork called glitch-soc, and one of the modifications I’ve made is dummying out the API calls to create an account that the application uses, so that sign-ups can only be done through the home web page using a hCaptcha verification.
This is a measure to fight against automated spambot sign-ups, something that donphan.social is unfortunately being targeted with a lot, sometimes dozens an hour without any measures, which (cont)
Btw, I’m always looking to welcome new users in this community and the wider fediverse. If you still have a Twitter account and want to help me, you can RT this promotion tweet that I’ve made! https://twitter.com/Siphonay/status/1422220488672165890
It always takes a few hours of work on https://donphan.social maintenance to remind myself how proud I am of this server, how long I’ve cared for it, and all the heart I poured into customizing Mastodon’s style and codebase to make it what I want it to be.
It’s one of my most tangible creations and achievements. Even if the server sometimes is a bit quiet, I’m very grateful for every user that’s along for the ride.
Thank you so much for using d.s
#MastoAdmin question, boosts appreciated!
I upgraded my Mastodon server to 3.4.1 and this warning showed up in my admin dashboard. Is there anything I need to do? What exactly should I be configuring?
I'm streaming a test of Windows Neptune on twitch: https://twitch.tv/Siphonay
I just did a MSpaint cubone
I will upgrade the server to Mastodon 3.4.1+glitch some time within the week. This new version features a new presentation for server rules, I'll take the occasion to rewrite and reword some of them if needed, but an explicit mention of antivax content being forbidden will definitely be added.
