I was trying to get #emacs to show me lunar phases in the modeline yesterday evening - didn't work, but it appeared overnight. do I need to call a priest??

For those joining #Mastodon from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. things might seem quiet at times and not as active when you first join.
Remember that no on here is collecting your data, building a profile of you, algorithms trying to keep your attention to sell ads, and you are not a product.
In a way the more time you spend looking for people to communicate with, replying to toots, and boosting toots will connect you with more people.
Also remember use a couple hashtags once in a while for things you're interested and excited about.
Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.
as far as a 0.5 second google search tells me there is no patron saint or god of elbows, for example.
