Only downside to this new world is "toot!". Who else hears the passing of gas?
@ardoomer Different instances have different terms for posts! There's a witch instance where you get 666-character "Hexes" instead.
@ardoomer I think you have to create an account there to get those individual features, BUT you can still see/follow people from those instances when you encounter them in your feeds
@ardoomer I'm following a bunch of people with mastodon.art accounts where they mostly just post their art and keep their chatting to a mastodon.social account
@honestlyjon I was literally like, "I UNDERSTAND. I NEED TO FIND A WITCH TO FOLLOW SO I CAN SEE ALL OF THE WITCHES"
@ardoomer It is possible to import an account into a new instance and keep everything *except* your followers
that feature+keeping your followers has been pitched to the community developers (though I hear it'd be a lot of work and this is mostly volunteer-run)
BUT as soon as that happens I'll likely migrate to a witch town, because DuH
@ardoomer (Also to limit the strain on this instance, as I understand the Great Comics Twitter Migration definitely caught this place off-guard)
@ardoomer that's one of the key features to Mastodon: though all instances can connect, they can all have different terms and conditions, layouts, basic features, communities, etc.
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!
