My hobby is writing stuff in awk and bash that should not be written in either.
Get you an instance admin like @ashfurrow #hugops https://mastodon.technology/@announcements/100572939080233466

So, if you see any emoji next to a person's name, like ♋☣✅🚾📴 keep in mind that has no significance beyond having emoji next to their name. On Birdland that little blue checkmark may mean something, here it is just a small fashion statement. Oh, and if you want custom emoji, talk to your instance operator.

Seriously. Sign up here:
Not only does your $ fund one of the largest instances and the default port of entry for refugees from the bad place - your money also funds development. So even if your instance is elsewhere - it is worth funding
At the moment it’s gettign < $50K per year funding. That’s peanuts.
On the influx of newcomers to Mastodon... Welcome. Strap yourselves in, it is going to be a wild ride!
Meanwhile, on another instance, someone is tooting the entire Communist Manifesto.
Home timelines should be all caught up now. Our traffic is averaging 400 req/s with occasional spikes to 1,200 req/s.
There are 23k active users on mastodon.social right now (8.7k arrived this week). Registrations are closed but invite links work. You can create an invite link from "Invite people" link or preferences page.
I have added 2 mods to the team (awaiting response from 3rd candidate), reports are being processed. Nazis can get fucked.
So, is it fair to say that the big difference between two instances (assuming the same Acceptable Use Policy and Performance) is the contents of the Local Timeline?
Population Counter is getting there...
