@jonworth My biggest fear in that regard is that this might be something of an echo chamber

@noicebrewery I just looked up what a mastos actually is en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastos and well, let's just say I don't have one of those for my morning coffee just yet

My band is preparing its first album, so it's time to make sure we're sure about our name. Would you listen to an alt-rock band called The Board?

Seeing a bunch of people on Twitter talking about fleeing to Mastodon, so I've fired it up for the first time in months.

What happens to our profiles, people followed and posts if a Instance dies?

Maybe there should be some "buddy system" in place between Admins? Other ideas?
