i think it sucks how difficult it is to customize mastodon's interface. from colors to changing UI images. half the reason it's such a pain in the ass to upgrade yiff.life is because of the customizations i want to maintain between releases*

*yes, it should be in github. someday.

@sky I can't believe that despite it being so common for instances to develop strong unique identities it's still not easier to maintain that...


@bucktoy @sky I get the impression from the mastodon project that rather than viewing communities as separate social networks that all interopt as part of a greater social network they have become more focused on the greater social network to the point of just viewing individual communities as nodes or access points which offload moderation and hosting costs onto random strangers.
