@kev While the decision to stop expanding mastodon.social was the right one, one could argue he should not have made the second one. I can’t help but feel he’s making the situation worse.

A decision could have been made to either make a series of instances, run by different people, and promote those. Or, even better, invest more in promoting existing instances to better distribute the influx of users.

@yarmo @kev I think promoting regional instances would help greatly. This would create more sense of community on the local servers while still being connected to the fediverse.

@LPS @yarmo @kev oh no, that's a great idea. I'm going to have to setup a community instance for the weird little town I live in now aren't I?

@oppen @yarmo @kev That seems to be the idea behind friend.camp (50ish people or so) by @darius
