Bonjour à tous,
Je chercher une solution de planning / prise de RDV.
Via un lien, les personnes pourraient réserver sur un créneau libre et entrer des infos, les créneaux déjà pris n'étant pas accessibles et bien sur les informations non visibles pour les autres.
Seul l'admin verrais les infos.
Une idée de vers quoi m'orienter?
Eventuellement chez @zaclys ?

This one makes me laugh every year… because it is so very true.

The Turing Test poisoned the minds of generations of AI enthusiasts, because its criteria is producing text that persuades observers it was written by a human.

The result? Generative AI text products designed to "appear real" rather than produce accurate or ethical outputs.

It *should* be obvious why it's problematic to create a piece of software that excels at persuasion without concern for accuracy, honesty or ethics. But apparently it's not.

Pedantic hill I will die on 

Stop saying there are no algorithms. Algorithms don't necessarily involve opaque machine learning-driven decisions. Showing posts in chronological order is an algorithm. Showing a partial ordering of posts coming in from other nodes in a federated distributed system is an algorithm. Anything involving computers uses algorithms.

Even if you can predict what it does, there's an algorithm. ESPECIALLY if you can predict what it does.

Thank you for coming to my Ted talk.

Seriously, multiple times today by very different people : stop sharing posts made only of numerous emojis that have no CW. Don't. Either repost with a CW or don't repost...

Ne partagez pas de murs d'emojis sans content warning, c'est un enfer pour toutes les personnes qui ont un lecteur d'écran...

Juste out of curiosity, how’s your delivery towards MS emails from your instance?
(hotmail, live, outlook, etc.)

“Please leave the registers as you would like to find them” calling convention.

🧵 Si vous êtes inscrits sur les instances mastodon.social ou mastodon.online (que j'appellerai dans ce thread "S&O"), il va falloir qu'on parle, pour votre bien, avant que ça ne dérape.
Et si vous arrivez depuis peu sur Mastodon, je suis désolé pour ce qui suit (mais il y a une solution).

Voilà : votre instance se fait de plus en plus invisibiliser/bloquer par d'autres instances. Ce qui signifie que vous perdez progressivement accès à vos voisins.

Quoi ? Mais pourquoi ?

If you setup a Mastodon instance recently, you may not be aware of this mailing list for Mastodon admins to exchange best practices and tips:

lists.ffdn.org/wws/info/mastod

There are many French admins there, but the list is English-speaking.

If you want to see Mastodon at its best, strongly recommend these options:

:android: Android - Use apps Tusky or Fedilab

:apple_inc: iPhone/iPad - Use apps Metatext or Toot!

💻 Computers - Log in through your server's website

Mastodon was designed for websites and third party apps. These are *still* the best ways to use Mastodon!

(Official app exists because new people were only looking for an official app in app stores, and giving up when they didn't find one. You don't need to use it!)

It’s interesting that the biggest communication challenge facing Mastodon communities is explaining that it’s basically a protocol and a network of independent, interconnected servers, which is what the Web, e-mail, even DNS and most of the fundamental services we use on the internet are, and always were.
It just illustrates just how much ‘Big Tech’ proprietary social media platforms swallowed up and walled off, if it’s now difficult to explain what the internet actually is!

Getting a bit offtopic, I think a lot of servers just sort of upgraded to 4.0 assuming it would be basically the same with new features, but 4.0 has actually a number of changes and feature *removals* admins might find to be a surprise. Pages no longer load without JavaScript, which means they don't load instantly; the multicolumn "instance at a glance" view for logged out users is gone; margins have been tweaked, (IMO) breaking Advanced mode; the logged-out front page is now totally different:

Update: So the screenshot in that last post *was* what the URL I linked looked like last night. But apparently between then and this morning, brands.town updated to Mastodon 4.0. Before 4.0, the Mastodon front page linked a "/public" URL that showed a neat 3-column overview of local-timeline posts on this instance. As of 4.0 the 3-column view is gone completely, and the /public page is moved to a different URL, brands.town/public/local .

A thing I have been very much enjoying the past few days is just periodically opening and reading brands.town/public

Risks to Mastodon with increasing popularity 

Interesting comment on Hackernews regarding a possible scenario/long term risk should Mastodon threaten the corporate sphere of social media.
