Welp. There's always signing up for a new one! Or making another account and trying to get ahold of the admin, or whatever...

Isn't social.tchncs the one that got itself pretty much blocked everywhere for the admin protecting a literal full-on bigot? Then trying to 'joke' his way out of it?

Or am I confusing that with another tech one.

I wasn't aware of that, but to be honest I'm not aware of a lot of things. If that's the case then yikes!

You likely managed to miss 90% of the drama.

Hard for admins to miss it though, usually people are pointing it at admins in general.

I'm glad icosa manages to not be hated on so much as others though.

We probably have an easier time than others.

I've heard of it but I don't think it's for me... I don't use Twitter or Facebook. I just don't use social media much in general (except for reddit, but even then that's only to read up on stuff).

So, given mine is defunct, is there a recommended instance I should sign up for when I create a new one?

Fundamentally, Mastodon seems better than Twitter. I have a Mastodon account I've used a bit, but it always felt specific to one community. Either case, I don't use it right now and likely won't in the near future; I'm doing just fine without endlessly scrolling Twitter and am not looking to get back into that habit

I love mastodon so much. I have three accounts:

@exo@niu.moe
@exo@cybre.space
@exo@donphan.social

I'm really hoping that it picks up more momentum, but two months in and it's infinitely better than twitter.

our critera is mostly "don't side with gamergate"

really, it's a generalist safe-space instance

Ahhh, that's easy enough then. Those people suck.

Any recommendations for an iOS app these days? I have Amaroq but I'm always looking out for the best…

@halian@icosahedron.website

Also, I tried setting an instance up in Docker for roleplaying purposes, and yet it will only listen on IPv6, no matter what my google-fu leads me to to fix that. What do?

The internet finally ran out of IPv4 addresses, I guess! Sorry!


I don't know what to do. Your server does have IPv4 support and an IPv4 address, right?
Some providers won't give you one unless asked

Yes to both. I guess I just have to set Mastodon up standalone.

I got one of these silly things. I don't really understand how to use it or what Mastodon is. Like, the federated-ness... of it... I didn't really know which instance to pick, so I just picked the default one. I guess Mastodon lets you pack up and go elsewhere if you really want, though, so if I see an instance I like I can just move to it... right? It's gonna be hard to convince myself to use it as much as Twitter when most of my friends are on Twitter already and convincing them to even try Mastodon's gonna be impossible...

I like the less Nazis part, though. That part's good
