As a note to our new tumblr friends, the fediverse is a primarily volunteer-run thing with the admins paying for all the server costs out of their own pockets

If you'd like to chip in towards keeping the fediverse running then most admins have patreon or kofi links somewhere that you can throw a couple of bucks at from time to time


@troubleMoney honestly thinking we should add a built in "crowdfund this instance" solution; paid fediverse memberships where the instance admins can say "it costs this much to run the instances" and in order to signup, you pay a small share of that amount

@ThisIsMissEm I wouldn't be a massive fan of that, I prefer the sort of "hey, we've got this running, come join, maybe help if you want" vibe that's the norm at the moment but if an instance wants to go that way then that's fine

@ThisIsMissEm you might be surprised, with an admin that's approachable and a good community people generally try to chip in a bit when they can
