Okay, so can someone explain to me, in a concise and clear way, the difference between the Local Timeline and the Federated Timeline? I'm lazy and don't want to look through the documentation…
@Amras local timeline has a real-time feed of toots from people in your instance - the one you signed up for. federated timeline is the same, but with all the other instances that your instance can see
@Amras Local timeline is people on the same server as you (in your case, mastodon.social), Federated Timeline also includes people from other servers that are followed by people on m.s
@Amras Local believes in states rights. Federation calls that racist.
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
