Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Plus The Two Dollar Challenge‽
This holiday season we have so much to be thankful for: our family, health, friends, liberties (depending on where you live), etcetera.
But one thing we should be thankful for is the Fediverse contributions by:
- @Gargron@mastodon.social for @Mastodon@mastodon.social
- @email@example.com for @firstname.lastname@example.org / @email@example.com
- @firstname.lastname@example.org for @email@example.com
I know in the past there has been debate on whether we should support our local admin server hosting content for free or towards future software development.
Since both are critical, why not support both‽
The Two Dollar Challenge
On your local instance that you post upon, if you are using it without prior charge then donate $1/month to support it’s upkeep (bandwidth, storage, moderation time, etcetera).
The other $1/month commitment goes towards furthering software development. If you are interested in the two dollar challenge, then you can donate to these projects (or any that you use) below.
Mastodon: Mastodon’s Patreon
Pixelfed: Dan’s Pixelfed Patreon
WriteFreely: WriteFreely’s OpenCollective
Matrix: Matrix’s Patreon
I am also contributing (see the video above), & for those who can donate, thanks for helping out! Be blessed!
