Just use the ✅ symbol to signal what instance you're currently active on. That way, there's finally a good use to that bloody check mark.
One more hat-tip to @five for this.
The ✅ symbol @ firstname.lastname@example.org, signals that I'm actively using that instance, and that my other nonchecked instance identities are hibernating. Hat-tip to @five for the idea.
Agreed. Now if only we had cheap/easy account migration and/or meaningful account linkage of some kind. This would be the only thing likely to motivate me to start an instance.
There would be an attraction to starting one with membership only open to people who've been around my infrastructure coding group a while as a badge of honor thing, plus local feed making it easy for alumni to connect.
