I feel like the tech instances are cool but I don't have much sense of community and the political instances are cool because people "get it" but often mildly insufferable, because I get it you know how to read political books
My main question is how do I find a healthy, motivating community to be a part of?
None of the online spaces other than facebook are places where I even feel like having conversations means anything or will go anywhere so when I do post it's just depressive pessimistic shit
@nergalur my personal favorites are here, and maybe you'll find something that fits if you go exploring on their public tls:
These folks all blatantly advertise the desire to create healthy and supportive communities, and seem to follow through on the user end.
@nergalur I really like @canary answer and will second that you should view it kind of like picking who the hosts of a certain party you keep showing up to are. While it's meant for admins, I think @darius post about how to run a social network helps highlight useful things for users to consider, too. https://runyourown.social/
@canary going through the list and already i'm more intrigued by the convos than single issue instances
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
