@Magess i-have-no-idea-what-i'm-doing.jpg I need to read some FAQs or something to find out about servers and whatnot.
@Taffer The server you join has a local timeline, where everyone who posts a message that's Public can be seen.
Servers connect to one another, so you can follow people across them, provided they haven't been banned.
The Federated timeline on your server is a choice collection of the people your server knows about because of who the other people on your server have followed across the federated network.
@Taffer It's not everyone, it's just a subset of everyone. But the more people that are on the server, the larger that subset is, until it reaches a point where there are so many messages in Federated that you can't read them.
@Magess Is there any way to move to a different server, or do you just create a new account and redirect on the old one?
@Taffer You can save your settings and import and set the old account to redirect, but there's not a "move"
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!
