Remember, you can't search by text on Mastodon, except in your own timeline. That's so harassers can't just find people to attack via a simple search.

Therefore it's important to use hashtags so people can find your stuff, assuming you want them to.

@Nezchan Although the research feature looks really bugged, like only 5 accounts appear when I search one even if there's more of them and I need to specify the instance, it's annoying

@Strabysme

Yeah, I'm not exactly on board with the name search thing only giving a limited number of results either. That's a whole other issue.

@Nezchan Gargon (or whatever spelling) is honestly a shit with his dev and if you don't agree with him he just meh you away it's really awful from a free of right and opensource project

@Strabysme

I haven't had a lot of contact with him in that context, so I honestly wouldn't know tbh. I mainly interact with Mastodon as a common user, and with Eugen on a more social level. I don't see him in the capacity of Guy In Charge very often.

@Nezchan thank you. I was wondering why hashtags are a thing. I'll remember to do that from now on
