@darius I'm interested in checking out friend camp ... tried to join, but your link takes me to mastodon's sign up section which has no link to join friend camp. is there a trick to it? or maybe not open to signups?
Here's my own profile w/o metrics on Mastodon.
Get the gist here: https://gist.github.com/bengrosser/ee350ffb6c2629348418fa1dc188ceba
I hacked up a quick Mastodon Demetricator, which will hide all visible metrics throughout Mastodon.
Since Mastodon's design is so logical and there aren't many metrics anyway, it didn't need me to do anything fancy like I have to for Twitter/FB/etc, so I just coded this up as a .css stylesheet to use with an extension like Stylus. Let me know if any issues. Install instructions are at the link:
New project--> an epic Zuckerberg supercut I call ORDER OF MAGNITUDE. Drawing on Zuck's every video appearance from 2004-18, I extracted a few words he speaks regularly, revealing the scale of his obsessions with growth, metrics, and more. https://bengrosser.com/projects/order-of-magnitude/
Worried about becoming a pawn of disinformation campaigns, yet don't want to #deletefacebook? Concerned about the impacts of Facebook on your mental health, but don't want your friends to miss out on those "likes?"

@Gargron can a forked and modded mastodon federate w/ other non-forked/master-based instances? IOW, could I fork mastodon, make some desired changes, start an instance, and still interact w/ other instances?
seems like header images that are at 1500x500 get cropped ... what size should the header be so it doesn't get cropped in the profile view? @Gargron
In case you also use Twitter, try it without the metrics: https://bengrosser.com/projects/twitter-demetricator/
