Hey new mastodon.social users! A few suggestions for better homes: 

@trwnh Do you know one for fantasy of tabletop roleplayers?

@PierreM

- tabletop.social is for tabletop games
- dice.camp is also for tabletop games, but a little bigger
- wandering.shop is geared toward fantasy and a bit of sci-fi

@trwnh .art doesn't have open regs, you have to get invited

@Gargron yeah, some of the suggestions i made are invite-based, but i made those suggestions anyway because invites can be obtained and i know people at most of those instances / i am one of those people

@trwnh Furry? Come over at vulpine.club :3

@ash Hmm, I could have sworn there was one founded by a journalism co-op at some point. Not sure what happened to it. writing.exchange might be the closest at the moment!

Hey new mastodon.social users! A few suggestions for better homes: 

@trwnh joinmastodon.org/ scroll down to Sign Up. "All you need to do to sign up is choose a server. Just like when signing up for an e-mail address, one server is going to be hosting your account and be part of your identity."

Choose one selection from "I am..." and another from "I speak..." column

@cosullivan This shorthand list was made for people who don't have the spoons to go through the instance picker. :) It includes a few instances that I know to be good, and to which access I can procure for new users if need be!

@trwnh This is one aspect of Mastodon I haven’t fully wrapped my head around yet. If I’m a fan of one or more of those things, what difference does it make which instance I’m on? Can I still follow related hashtags and people who use them?

@chartier Sure! Joining a specific instance can mean joining a specific community. If you want your local and federated timelines to be "flavored", so to speak, you can join those servers to cut out the "noise" of other/unrelated things. Your network includes your neighbors, who they follow, and everyone they talk to.

You can stay on a big instance, but your timelines will also be more crowded and less specific. You might find some hashtag usage by people who haven't been followed, though.

@trwnh so are we to create separate profiles on these topic focused communities? Or is there a way for me to view a feed without following a member?

@willimac It's up to you, really. Some people like making multiple accounts, but the best thing to do is find a good home and stick with it. There are some requests for being able to view local timelines in the webapp, but right now it's up to each app to implement that.

On web, you can go to unmung.com/mastoview and type in an instance URL to preview its local or federated timeline.

@trwnh where is the love for blocked instances ;.;

@trwnh The instance I'm on (soc.ialis.me) is open to registrations, while I see it has been mentioned many times that ACP isn't.
Seems to be about the same sizes too.

@b9AcE Also an option! I included ACP because I can invite people to it and also because ialis is running the slightly-outdated 2.4.0rc3, while ACP is running 2.4.3.

@trwnh Not for long, I'd guess soc.ialis.me/@tech/10057071543 :-D
Anyway, Just wanted to make sure it was known.
Such lists are a very good idea!
