Read https://blog.soykaf.com/post/how-federation-works/ and it appears to me there's a lot of initial work to do before I invite friends over. 😕
Also... why don't I see anything when I visit a profile on any other instance? Can #Pleroma not request the full profile? Why *just* what we *need*?
@celia Wow, I hadn't heard about spacebear. Pretty good pricing, too. I *kind* of want to have my own mastodon instance, but I like it here too much.
@robby Going to try it again. 🤷♀️
Mastodon is far more stable as an overall product imo so I want to stick with it for now. Hometown, although, doesn't have an exit path, sadly.
@celia Couple of minutes, usually. Depends if their server is up.
But following affects your Home timeline, not really your Federated one (unless it's the first follow between the two instances – assuming Pleroma works like Mastodon, anyway).
@wizzwizz4 Yeah it would be the first follow between these two servers. I think it does work similarly.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
