Long overdue, but I finally created an account on Patreon and started pledging to creators of useful stuff on the internet.
If you are using a large Mastodon instance, why not see if you admin has a Patreon profile to raise money for operating the instance?
My admin has: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3581610
buying a 20EUR VPS and hosting my shit for myself in a WMPU instance. I have over 40 blogs in the family so it makes sense for me.
the two things I think would be good additions to Mastodon feature set:
- bulk follow another instance's local timeline, e.g. I'm on mastodon.technology but interested in a press related timeline
- quoted boost, like quote in Twitter
- block, just because
three things i think would......

Q: How can I find a Mastodon Instance to join?
A: A good starting point is http://tooter.today, which will make the choice for you. There's an automatically updated list off of https://mastodon.social, the primary instance, here: https://instances.mastodon.xyz/
The GitHub project also lists a set of manually-updated Instances: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/blob/master/docs/Using-Mastodon/List-of-Mastodon-instances.md
My Mastodon app "11t" is out of beta!
For Android, you can find the app here:
For iOS, the app is in review and will be released after Apple has reviewed it.
by the way, it's CSS Naked Day, does anyone remember? ;)
do we do introductions here? i'm gergo, used to be a linux guy, now just a geek. and very interested in how to start my own instance. and whether it makes sense. so: hi!
questions so far: does it matter which instance i'm on?
if it does (guess it does, for 'local timeline'), how do i migrate to another instance?
