I'm very disappointed in Mastodon tonight, and earlier today while I was mowing my lawn I was thinking about ways to move users to smaller instances and give them better information about which instance to choose.

Perhaps numbers or users on a given instance shouldn't be shown - I picked this instance because I didn't know what I was doing, didn't know the culture, and lacked imagination, and it's fair to assume that other people who've never used Mastodon will be just as ignorant of it.

I'm thinking one of those word cloud things, to kinda show a rough ephemeral idea of what people on a given instance are talking about. I'm also thinking there really shouldn't be any instances around with more than a couple of thousand users.

@ifixcoinops Yeah, I got lucky that I chose an instance full of techno anarchist Canadian dads. That was nowhere in the description but sometime the fates smile on you. Also, our admin is great.
