Hey floss.social :) My name is Chris, and I am a first year college student, as well as a free software and privacy advocate.
I love contributing to projects, my favourites being Fracal, a GTK client for Matrix chat, and Godot. I have a (small, for now) blog at https://brainblasted.gitlab.io.

I have my Pleroma instance set up, but logins don't persist (I am logged out after refreshing), I can't change things like my user avatar, and I cannot login with OAuth. I don't think I did anything wrong because I followed directions, but I have no clue why it is so broken :(
