As we have so many new faces on the fediverse in recent days I would like to take a moment to share with you the history of this place and what makes it so special as a community. β™₯ πŸ’–

Brings a tear to my eye that such a magical place with such a rich history can exist in a backdrop of what centralised services have become, I love you all

Wow, what a beautiful response from the community. Thank you! I tried to make sure I got diverse opinions for interviews and didn't give up, I'm very grateful for your kind words.

@sophia wow. Even as a long time Mastodon user I gained amazing insights into our history. Thank you so much for this video! ✨

@sophia So cool that you got a direct quote from Eugen for this video!

@peptostate im so proud of the breath of opinion and views I've managed to gather for it

@sophia I knew it, but I still had to see it. 😘
You never disappoint.

@maloki @sophia I read the post but not the poster, so I fell for it like the mug that I am. πŸ˜‚

Seemed only fair to play along.


Me, clicking play: I'm surprised this isn't a rickroll.

Me: never mind.

@sophia wow this is like those facebook highlight reels, all the memories πŸ’“ πŸ’– thank you so much sophia it's beautiful 😭 😭 I really am so proud of this community

I never learned so much in one video. Thank you for this, it was very informative.

@sophia I saved watching this video for a few days after I was away over the weekend and wow it's amazing

@sophia The content I've come to expect. I was fully braced, for once.

@sophia The moment I saw it was about 3’30” long I thought, β€œoh right, here we go…”

@considermycatjohn sticking a brief title up then adding it turned out to be a v effective strategy for this

@sophia The fact that rickrolling is still very much a Thing on here adds to the β€œlate 2000s Twitter” vibe, and I mean that in an entirely unironic positive way

@considermycatjohn I've been doing it on twitter for years prior to here tbf, most people who've been here a while are wise to me πŸ˜”

Ah hot dangit. Got rickrolled. I'll go back to watching your lewds, they're more fun :P

@sophia This is a great video. Personally I think the part about the DMs could have been a bit clearer.

@sophia watched the whole clip, very emotional thanks for sharing!

@sophia Pretty good. I do wish the narrator would have gone easy on the puns though. Saying "for instance" all the time gets a bit old.

@sophia thanks for this, it's always good to get a refresher on the basics after some time away

@sophia Me scrolls through the replies to check this is what I assume it is. It is. Sigh…

@sophia I remember seeing this video when I first joined fedi, and it's as good now as it was back then

@sophia NO... goddamit leave your reign of terror in The Other Place

@25kV oh mate the fedi gets it worse than twitter does haha
