Hello everyone who is new to Mastodon! Make sure you try and find some folks to follow who have been here for a long time. Don't make the mistake of just following folks joining right now or those you know from other places. Because many of these will leave soon, making you think this place is dead when in reality it's buzzing with activity. I've seen it happen too often with new social services and sites.

Still looking for a really compelling auxiliary language. Lojban is unwieldy. Toki Pona is simple but inefficient. Something in between? Both have great design improvements over natural languages (including Esperanto).
