Galleries

Artodon is an open source gallery viewer for Mastodon instances. We were able to tweak the code (our sources [link]) to support multiple tags and have two galleries deployed showcasing our users work.

If you're interested in #photo, #photography or #photographie we have a gallery at gallery.photog.social showcasing our users photos.

If you're interested in not being alone in your #fotofails or #photofails we have a gallery of our users fails at fotofails.photog.social.

Other User Interfaces (UIs)

We have a couple alternate UIs deployed for photog.social users. One is very similar to Twitter and one has an almost Instagram feel to it.

  • Twitter Like: We have Halcyon deployed at itter.photog.social. It's a Twitter clone for Mastodon. You just need to enter your FULL username (@user@photog.social) into the login prompt and you'll be off and tooting in no time.
  • Instagram esque: We have Pinafore deployed at pinafore.photog.social. It's very similar to Instagram and includes text posts in a single column. It's also has much larger image previous than the standard Mastodon interface.

Approved Bots

  • @Announce: Announcements and other important info. Cross toots blog posts mainly.
  • @dPS_Challenge: Bot that cross posts Digital Photography School (dPS) weekly challenges.

Unavailable Content and Instance Moderation

We have blocked a number of Japanese instances media due to some forms of loli content being legal in Japan but illegal elsewhere. Given our server is located outside of Japan we took a pro-active stance on blocking media as a "just in case" moment. This does not mean you cannot interact with these instances, simply their media will not be cached or shown on our instance.

Some instances we have chosen to remove from our federated timeline. You can still follow accounts on these instances and if you follow a user on one of the instances that does not appear on our federated timeline, their posts will show in your personal timeline. These are mainly instances that tend to be busy and/or are known for overloading our federated timeline with posts.

Some instances we have chosen to block outright. Most of these instances are full of illegal content, hate speech and more. We've also blocked instances that have run harassment campaigns against others in the past. You will NOT be able to interact with these instances from our instance.

Unavailable content

Mastodon generally allows you to view content from and interact with users from any other server in the fediverse. These are the exceptions that have been made on this particular server.

Media files from these servers will not be processed or stored, and and no thumbnails will be displayed, requiring manual click-through to the original file:
