@jake74 I was wondering whether it's worth spinning up a football fans instance, either competition level (premiership.fans for mass appeal) or club level (dcfc.fans to trial then scale). Thoughts?
@si @jake74 @mastohost I’m sure it could be done. The logistics of all of that sound annoying but I’d gladly chip in at least a few bucks to get started and then see how it goes. My biggest reservation would be not knowing if Mastodon would stick for me... though having groups that make it fun and worthwhile would help.
@si @jake74 here’s something I don’t get about Mastodon that maybe you understand - is there a way to follow a second instance without creating an account at that instance? I know we can send messages back and forth between instances without issue, but if I wanted to follow the discussions in @toot.futbol, is the preferred way to just make a second account or can I “join” it with this one?
@si @jake74 ok! So Tootdon on iOS will let you search for an instance (presumably one that’s in the public directory) and then at that instance’s local timeline to the app alongside the Home, Local, and Federated timelines for the instance you’re signed in to. I’ve attached a video showing how it works. This seems like a decent solution http://jonkit.ca/cdn/temp_share/Tootdon_Screencast.mov
