Reminder for newcomers: Know about your instance!
Each instance should have an about page at /about/more (e.g. Octodon's is at: https://octodon.social/about/more )
You can usually learn who runs your instance (if you don't know already) AND, hey, they might have a way that you can support the costs of running the instance financially, like Patreon
