Visste du att det nu finns en SVENSK Mastodon instans borta på


Jag föredrar att inte prata svenska, men lite coolt i alla fall!

@maloki Det visste jag, men det var bara typ jag och fem andra användare när jag kollade senast. 😃

@fenomenologen Man måste börja någonstans, och jo, jag visste att du visste :P Därför jag började följa dig. :)

@fenomenologen och, sen kan det ju inte få medlemmar om ingen vet om att det finns! :P Fattar inte att ingen tootade till mig om den :D

@maloki Nu har jag inte koll på Mastodon alls, men är ni ett svenskt gäng bakom det? Eller är det folk lite överallt, som det brukar bli i sådana här sammanhang?

@fenomenologen Nej, @Gargron sitter i Tyskland, och jag är i Malmö. Andra contributors är lite utspridda

@fenomenologen Hursomhaver, jag föredrar att prata engelska. :) Men ville skriva just den tooten på svenska!

@maloki Super fun - I'm at a US college founded by Swedish immigrants, and Swedish classes are still popular. I'll have to see if there are language learners interested.

@Holly That's a good way of doing it! :)

Step one would be reading and understanding the about/more right? :D

@maloki Hi! my partner's Swedish, but I've yet to (properly) learn any. Would it be annoying/inappropriate If I joined the instance as an means to try and learn Swedish? (I won't harass people for lessons)

@sajan I think it's a great reason to join. Learning a new language by osmosis is good.

I'm actually trying to get @Loa (my boyfriend) to consider signing up there so he can practice his Swedish more.

He just finished the Duolingo course in Swedish the other week.

@maloki @Loa Oh noice! I did try duolingo, but I think I gave up pretty quickly/found I wasn't retaining much from it. Excited at the prospect of this being potentially more effective though!

@maloki well i'll try my best...
yeyybon shnur de burgy hurgy tooten-toot, bork bork bork!

@maloki Hvis ikke en domenehai allerede hadde tatt hadde hatt det navnet i dag.

@thor If you want to you can write me a Norwegian text (that fits in a toot) that I can post to advertise your server. :)

@maloki Oh, thank you, that's very kind of you. Any requirements for how it should be worded?

@maloki Nice. Tack för reklamen! Men vad menar du att du inte föredrar att prata svenska? 🤔 Har precis börjat och slätar fortfarande ut lite rynkor i driftsättningen, men tanken är som sagt att nyttja domänen som jag haft vilandes ett bra tag. Och ska det vara .se så ska det lika väl vara riktat mot svenskar.

@stemid I toot and tweet and post almost exclusively in English.

Mostly because I want other people to be able to understand me as well. But I understand that some Swedish people have this inherent need to speak Swedish (I also took a BA in English last year, so that's probably why I prefer English).

It looks (from the replies I got) that some people were looking to maybe sign up to practice their Sweidsh, that'd be okay with you?

@stemid To Clarify: It was me announcing the existence of the instance, while clarifying that I prefer people to speak English with me :)

@maloki Sure. Goal is to remain a publically available instance for as long as possible. But technically I haven't started promoting the instance yet because there are still some deployment issues I want to sort out. Also to get a few other people on board as sysadmins and do what we can to increase transparency and accessibility of how the instance is being operated.

@stemid Woopsie, I should probably have looked into that first :D
