All, I've migrated to @fahrni, please follow me there. Thanks!
@bixmediocre Do you know how to invite users to an instance? Mine is ready to go, I just don't know how to invite people. 🙂
There are many Mastodon instances with which your home instance federates but which you might not want to see in your timelines. Fortunately, you can hide all toots from a given instance.
1) In your home instance's web interface, open the account of a user on the server you wish to hide.
2) At the bottom of their profile, next to their follower/following stats, is a "..." menu. Click that.
3) At the bottom of the new context menu, click "Hide everything from <instance>".
@StevenJV the instance will be curmudgeon.cafe once I get it running.
@_ oh good idea! Yeah they were. Twitterrific's id is 643,443. So that means we started when Twitter was *half* the size that Mastodon currently is. Whoa.
@pth anyways. On twitter you’re scrambling for crumbs from a company that at best tolerates you and at worst is actively trying to fuck you over.
With some effort and a bit of risk you could easily be the de facto app for iOS and macOS here.
You want to be scrambling for scraps from Twitter for the next 10 years?
@padraig I see you’ve left micro.blog. I just joined but I’m finding mastodon more to my liking.
One misconception of #mastodon is that when you arrive here you expect to see all your #twitter friends or at least someone to follow. It's like walking into a library and expecting your favorite book to be lying on the table in the lobby waiting for you. The community you seek is here, you just have to do a bit more work to find them.
I’m keeping a really close watch on @foozmeat to see how his Panic instance spins up. I have a Digital Ocean Droplet spun up to host on when the time is right.
So, I got all excited and wanted to start my own instance but slowed my roll a bit. Can I move over to my instance with this account and followers? If I can I may continue my little adventure. If not, I may just stay here. If I do my own I figure it’ll be just me for a while then I can invite some friend over. I really want to do this. It’s like hosting your own blog in a way.
Follow friends and discover new ones. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. This server is run by the main developers of the Mastodon project. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
