Free, but invite-only

Our community network is a small, sustainable hobby. We are tied closely to our users and developers through their Patreon pledges and small opt-in features. When you invite someone, they are associated with you in the user tree and you may be responsible for them if they abuse the network.


You will need an app from a developer to do even the simplest things, but they can build very creative software! From iOS to command line to Blackberry, they have made beautiful apps. The API encourages a high level of transparency and control of what comes across the network.

If you have questions or would like an invite, get in touch!

Looks like the update went out. #riposte
It's luck, it's perhaps fitting that my post 1337 here is a bit geeky. Tomorrow is International Towel Day!



Proposal: we change to the *first* Monday each month.

Any 'no' votes? ;)
