It seems like some people just assume they can throw ActivityPub on what ever they want and then suddenly be just like Gargon and work on a project that they at least like in the comfort of their living room.

The current welcome screen goes over these things in this order:

1. Hi, here is what your username is with the domain part
2. This is what the compose part is, and what options you generally have
3. These are the different timelines you can see
4. Here is who your admin is

And while that's kind of useful information (varying degrees of) it feels like it's missing a narrative in some way, something like "how do I make this place useful for myself"

I'm a complete New Englander, sorry- Paradise for me is a pine forest so quiet and empty, you can hear the snow fall.
