@seithichurul Engage! Reply! Boost! Hashtag! Discover other users on both your local and federated servers!
@gry It's just WordPress and The Event Calendar plug-in. There are premium add ones to sell tickets which would make it a more robust Eventbrite replacement. But I'd take Eventbrite over Evite any day!
@curiousowl I understand that. But I'm asking specifically about the micro.blog platform. Details at that domain.
I love discovering, promoting, and attending local startup and STEM events (and hackathons and geek meetups and...). I spent so much time tracking and sorting them, I decided I might as well build a site to share them. Check out HawaiiCal.com... and please help spread the word (and add your own events) if you like it! #hawaii #startups #stem #scitech #events #calendar #thatnewsitesmell https://www.hawaiical.com/events/list/
@MathewVarghese There are no 'verified' accounts on Mastodon, but many users just add a checkmark emoji (☑️) to their profiles to make it look that way... usually in irony, not seriousness.
@scrivener They're making money, so good for them. Just can't figure out the appeal over existing open source platforms.
@prashant Yes, you can transparently interact with users of any Mastodon server as if they are local to you. You can also sign up for accounts on other servers if you like. Open, federated, a little messy... just the way we like it. No "verified" badges, however.
@prashant Check your account settings inside Masthead/Mastodon to make sure the email address is correct. It may also be that your email address needs to be verified, but if the link works already, that would likely already be the case.
@sidvee There are no 'verified accounts' on Mastodon. Profiles can be reported to instance administrators, but if someone sets up fake profiles on 100 instances, that is indeed a pain.
Anyone really into micro.blog? Many people I follow are really into it, but I'm not sure I understand the draw. #microblog
@scrivener Thanks! Fixed. Took a while, Josh is using a block-based WordPress editor plugin called Elementor, I wasn't familiar with it.
@gry I didn't even know about the process when I created my first page. So far it's been left standing. I definitively focus more on pages that are flagged as needed editing on the community portal.
All the news that's fit to toot.
