How many diaspora programmers?
With the growth in diaspora accounts (de-googleisation, facebook, googleplus), it seems reasonable to assume a proportion are programmers.
How many have joined the diaspora programmers' team?
How many have joined, then left? ;) (can you read between the lines? ;))
Is there a time limit on involvement, to encourage new people (again, can you read between the lines? ;))?

Pluspora - wo bin ich hier eigentlich? Und wem gehört das?
#Pluspora ist ein Diaspora-Pod, der von Ex-Plussern spontan für User eingerichtet wurde, nachdem #Google bekanntgegeben hatte, #GooglePlus im Sommer 2019 abzuschalten. Pluspora will User auffangen, die auf GooglePlus aktiv waren und nun eine neue Networking-Heimat suchen. Nach gut einer Woche sind bereits knapp 6.000 Plusser auf dieser Diaspora-Insel gelandet. Die aktuellen Statistiken zum Pod kann man auf der Seite Pod-Statistiken sehen.
Pluspora wurde übrigens von @Di Cleverly (Di Cleverly) aus New Jersey und ihrem Partner David gegründet. Unermüdlich begrüßt sie neue Mitglieder. Wenn ihr Fragen oder Probleme den Pod betreffend habt, ist sie vermutlich eine gute Ansprechpartnerin. Am besten, ihr folgt ihr, indem ihr sie einem euerer Aspekte zuordnet. Ist doch immer gut, wenn man den Hausmeister kennt
Thank you @Di Cleverly for your engagement here. Hopefully we'll become a big community of ex plussers!

Introducing Pluspora Wiki
I’ve been working on this lately, hopefully you will find my efforts worth while. What is the Pluspora Wiki? I wanted a space that would be beneficial both to moderators and users–where both could quickly scan and learn what types of conduct is or is not allowed on the platform. We want you to understand how to use the platform, but also know when to hit that report button if you see a user that may be in violation with a post, comment, or even a profile picture.
Here’s the link: http://bit.do/plusporawiki
I tried to break everything down into 4 simple categories:
- Bad behavior
- Bad users
- Pod people
With the help of my peers – @Di Cleverly, @David Thiery, @Steven Spence, @Matt Osbun, and @Ayoub – we’ve put together a lot for you to digest, but in small dosages.
I also tried to make sure it wasn’t just a list of no-nos, but also has useful information for combating no-nos.
This is by no means a complete work of art, I can already think of things I haven’t added yet. But it’s a start. And if you, dear users, find there may be lacking topics or have questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us with your feedback. We’re trying our best to raise a healthy, respectful community. Hopefully this will help us all come one step closer to that goal.
Phew… peace out.

Attention all #newhere!
Unlike other social networks like the soon-to-be-deceased #GooglePlus, Diaspora and other federated social networks don't have a central authority to perform #moderation. Mostly that means that there are a few lost souls whose behavior could be described as troll-like. You may find content you don't like, offensive and unwelcome comments on your posts, etc. This is an unpleasant side-effect of Diaspora's design: the platform doesn't need to bow to the rules and regulations of a single government, making it much harder to censor content. (Individual pods are subject to regulations of the government where they are hosted; but the network as a whole isn't.)
I've been trolled! What to do?
You have a few choices.
* You can go to the user's profile page and Ignore them. Ignored users won't be able to follow you or see your posts, comment on your posts, or @mention you in their posts or comments, although they can still comment on posts of others you follow. Like an old flame, there's no way to avoid crossing paths again.
- You can report a post or comment. This is actually a bit tricky to understand. Let's say your account is hosted on
diaspora.x.comand the troll has an account hosted on diaspora.y.com. If you report the troll, the message goes to the administrator of diaspora.x.comwhere they are given the option of removing it from your pod. The content will still exist on other pods (remember the thing about no centralized moderation?).
This is totally unacceptable!
OK. But that's also the way the system works. You can feel free to make suggestions for improving the system, or better yet, write a fix submit a pull request and make it available to everyone. I've advocated for some kind of machine-learning algorithm to help manage unpleasant content, but I haven't sat down to build one yet.
Thanks for signing up, and I hope you can see past the trolls and make some new friends here!

Diaspora* thru Dandelion* v 1.2.2 (35)
for those who lives with mobile, thru mobile and inside mobile devices (android based)
despite my own passion to Diaspora* social network in role to a brand new place for my social networking after promised G+ service shutdown, past week or a bit more I've had some portion of negative emotions. most of them were related with known different client side approach of Diaspora* using. if you are #newhere you may don't know that there is a minimum 4 ways to use Diaspora* in your mobile phone or tablet. first of all you can get into a federated pods network thru your Web Browser url line or choose one of known android applications: Native Diaspora app you can find in Google Play and two more options on F-droid FOSS apps catalogue: Dandelion* and Dandelior* apps. it seems like a good option of opportunities but isn’t. because you’ll have a different sets of broken features on each listed app. and it's enough annoying thing. especially if compare its with familiar to us who are #gplusrefugee less or more unified on all platforms and fully functional behavior of G+ applications. even though you’ll surf Diaspora* thru web browser it is not guaranteed a properly working features. I’ve had problem with @ tagging in Android Chrome and Firefox browsers in default Mobile view mode. only by toggling to Mobile Site @ tagging starts comes into effect. but Mobile Site view is a bit complicated for reading content on small phone screen. also, by running in front, I should say that this problem wasn’t solved in Dandelion* v 1.2.2 (35) too. and if you will want reply to whoever comment with mention or mention whoever in a post, you shall toggling between modes anyway. but I could firmly say that Dandelion* v 1.2.2 (35) don’t have any other known issues and its GUI is probably most developed and most comfortable to get most satisfied UX.
so, firstly you shall instal F-droid and find there Dandelion* release or find dandelions apk file on the web.
if it looks like this, probably you are on F-droid library and this is a right way
choose blue one, install and launch.
login into your pod from list of pods or, if your pod not listed, thru Custom Pod search wizard.
now you have almost fully functional application to surf federated pods community. in left side you’ll see Navigation Slide which is handy customizable for your personal needs (look at settings).
from Dandelion* you shall easy share posts from your stream to other services like Twitter FB and so on. just find a share to icoon in a right side of a top menu and do step 1 and step 2.
or, otherwise you can push to a posting time link in a post and there will appear post sharing popup menu like in web browser surfing.
also there is fine realised surfing by hashtags and by aspects
from Navigation Slide. and unlike from Native Diaspora app there is properly functioning photo upload to your posts.
only one there’s still not fixed. and this is mention (@ tagging). if you want tagg someone you shall switch between mobile/desktop views. hope so that it will be fixed soon.
so, now get the right app, enjoy the right social home. it's a Dandelion and Diaspora.
p.s. sorry of my broken English, I believe that it was possible to understand :)

Diaspora is going to need more pods
Based on @Di Cleverly and @David Thiery 's experience and estimates, Pluspora is not going to be sufficient or sustainable for the anticipated G+ exodus.
They see 20-40 pods of 1,000 - 2,000 users each being likely needed. Not necessarily all at once, but this is something that should be getting considered.
Operating costs are on the order of $25/mo using cloud services, or about $0.025/user-month, give or take. A quarter per year.
This works out to roughly 50,000 users migrating over. My previous estimates of user activity, backed by independent analysis by Stone Temple Consulting suggested 4-6 million publicly-participating G+ users as of January - March, 2015. The active core of that may have been as low as 50-100k, which seems generally sensible based on other indications.
The numbers are much squishier than I'd like but at least establish a starting point.
There are other alternatives, such as protocols / servers which have lower per-user overhead, but we have no data on this presently.

Tags and Aspects and Federation, Oh My!
For us Google+ refugees, adjusting to Diaspora* (and pluspora) can be a bit of an adjustment. We were all used to circles and collections and communities and we were comfortable. Sure, Google+ had hashtags but almost no one used them so it was almost like they did not exist. The good news is that Diaspora* works almost exactly like Google+ and you merely need to tweak your vocabulary.
- Post everything to Public using the drop-down menu next to the Share button.
- Add hashtags liberally so that people can find your posts.
- Follow interesting people, especially if they use a different pod (have something different after the @ than you do)
Tags work like supercharged circles. When you post, you add hashtags to it. These hashtags group your posts by subject, like a Google+ collection. You can add as many hashtags as you like, which is different from G+ which restricted a post to a single circle.
Tags are supercharged because they are also used for reading, to control which posts show up in your stream. You can follow a tag, regardless of who posts using the tag. On Google+, you could follow an individual's "caturday" circle but there was no way to follow all caturday circles.
When you follow an individual on Diaspora*, you add them to one or more aspects. This is almost the same as adding a Google+ person to one or more circles. Their posts will show up in your stream.
I wrote that aspects are "almost" like circles because there is a key difference between Google+ and Diaspora*: Federation. It makes following important. Google+ was one huge system; you could always see all posts. Diaspora* is a federation of smaller systems, called pods, and you can only see the posts which are on your pod. When you follow someone who uses a different pod (add them to one of your aspects), your pod copies that person's new posts from the other pod. This makes interesting stuff spread around the federation, since a public post becomes visible in more places.

Bonjour à tous
Et bien, quel joie de me retrouver ici sur Diaspora. J'en avais envie depuis longtemps et ce fourbe de G+ nous foutant à la porte a accéléré les choses. Si j'arrive ici à retrouver toutes les personnes de #googleplus que j'ai découvert au fil des ans et qui sont devenus des amis, j'enverrai un e-mail de remerciements à #alphabet.

A few of my favourite things are #abstractcolor, #abstractcolour, #beingwithtrees, #fineartamerica, #googleplus, #redbubble, #redbubbleartist, #soapfilm, #spinone #spinoni #creativePhotographer #creativePhotography
This is my second post, I had to remove the first. When I created my initial post here I wasn't aware that it was not possible to edit your post once you had shared it, so I am starting a new.
Here's to the future x All my best Heidi
Bienvenu au naufragé de Google+ !
Dandelion est libre ! Profitez en !
Rappel : Framasphère est un pod de diaspora, un réseau décentralisé, gratuit, libre et maintenu par des bénévoles !
Parfois (rarement), 404 est là, mais c'est vite réparé.
Welcome to the Google+ shipwreck!
Dandelion is “libre” (free) ! Enjoy it!

Pluspora is in the news again
With mentions of @Di Cleverly. This one is from CNBC.
Here's the excerpt about Pluspora:
As they and others in Lewis' group look for places to go when Google+ disappears, some have recommended smaller platforms like Mastadon and MeWe. Plus users have also been swarming to Pluspora, a community built through the Diaspora Foundation that was started about a month ago by a handful of people who feared that Google would eventually kill their favorite site.Link to full article: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/10/google-plus-users-mourn-shutdown.html
Diane Cleverely, a co-founder of Pluspora and a medical writer, said that Plus filled a gap in her social life and created something that feels like an extended family. She's met artists and scientists and hosted internet friends in real life.
Cleverely is grateful that she had the foresight to create Pluspora but is upset about the cavalier way that Google is abandoning its users. Lewis shares that disappointment.
Shout out to @David Thiery and @Steven Spence. #GooglePlus
I'm a #googleplus refugee, part of the Plus exodus (hrm, do I really want to #plusexodus this), a geek of #infotech, #llinux, and #economics, along with far too many other things. A #spaceAlienCat and #NotARealDoctor (but I'll play one if you like).
And for all the #dyslexics, I'm #nowhere
Many of you might remember me from popular social networks, such as:
YouTube: jpyper <- Go here for playlists of things that interest me.
YouTube: MaDpAGaN11 <- Go here for MaDpAGaN11 Vocaloid group, which I am a member of, and consultant for.
Calling all coders!
It’s been wonderful to see so many new members joining our community over the past few days, particularly all of you coming from Google+.
You might already have noticed that diaspora\* is missing some features that you’d really like to use.
As an open-source Free Software project, diaspora\* is created by its community. Now that you’re part of this community, we’d love you to help us improve it for everyone.
Our team of volunteer developers spends all the time they can spare working on diaspora\*. But there’s always a lot more work to do. The main issue that slows the pace of development is simply developer time. To increase developer time and so increase the speed of development, we need more developers!
Help us improve the software
- Get in touch with our core team before you start work on anything to discuss your proposed contribution. That way we can make sure that your contribution will fit well into the existing structure.
- Issues that involve federation (such as post editing, or groups) are usually pretty complex, so it might be a good idea to start with simpler issues until you’ve become familiar with the code and diaspora\* itself.
- We manage development via GitHub’s issue tracker. Look especially for issues tagged with the help wanted and newcomer labels.
Other ways you can help
If you don’t code, there are still plenty more ways you can help diaspora\*’s development.
- If you know someone who can code, and you think they might be interested in contributing to this project, tell them about diaspora\* and encourage them to consider helping!
- If there is a missing feature that’s really important to you, put a bounty on it to encourage someone else to build it! We use Bountysource for this.
- If you have a bit of admin experience, how about setting up your own pod?
- If you speak a language other than English, help us translate diaspora\* into that language.
- Another great way you can help the project grow is by spreading the word. If you still have accounts on other social networks, tell people there about diaspora\* and encourage any coders there to take a look at the project.
