So, in less than 6 months on Fosstodon, I produced over 1K toots (most of them poops really - can't refrain from sending stupid memes) and surpassed 100 followers.
Unlike other platforms, not a single one was I offended or attacked by anyone. Instead, I've had a good couple of meaningful conversations and enjoyed this weird feeling of being a part of a community that kinda makes sense.
Way to go, Fosstodon. Way to go.
@xpil it's great here in the fediverse! i don't feel obligated to share my thoughts for clout, i want to share my thoughts to make people happy and make new friends. no data mining here
@xpil the small community here is like a small town; I believe the small size makes the community nicer. Where a big city dehumanizes people, because they likely won’t see each other again, so bad behavior doesn’t weigh as much as it would in a small community.
@xpil late to the party here but I feel the same. I think it has to do with the smaller userbase and the ability to filter out posts to the instance you're on.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
