When I started pixelfed, stuff like blocks or mutes wasn't even on my radar.

I have never experienced abuse or harassment online. I've never blocked an account on twitter. It was naive to think those should not be a priority based on my own experiences.

I've learned so much this past year, and strive to build a safer alternative to IG for everyone.

It might take a bit longer, but it sure is worth it!


@dansup One thing I've learned building software and watching how this plays out. Diverse teams build successful products. I figure that goes for open source projects too.

Good on you for starting to understand your experiences are incomplete! You can do this!

@pandora_parrot Thanks, I'd really like to see more contributors. The current team is pretty diverse but small!
