ūüźė If you tried Mastodon and you "got bored" quickly, you were using it wrong.

Here's how to fix it:

· · Web · 10 · 54 · 40

@cfenollosa How do you juggle multiple interests / hobbies / communities then? Signing up on each one separately is impractical.

@nilesh @cfenollosa

That'd be cool, I like how small/niche these communities are. but bouncing around I don't understand yet.

@cfenollosa @jawmes I think, the decision of which instance to sign up on should be based primarily on who the admins are and what their rules are, rather than a topic which is perhaps best solved via hashtags, lists/groups etc. Not everyone interested in a topic should be forced/encouraged to choose a single instance. This is just centralisation all over again. @binyamin

That's an interesting point @nilesh. I don't want to be bouncing around either, but I do want to "subscribe" to other local feeds. This could be easily solved if every post from each instance had a hashtag of the instance: #fosstodon. However that would be very noisy and that's Metadata that's available anyway. I wonder if that can be a client-side feature... What do you think @Tusky?
@cfenollosa @jawmes @binyamin

@nilesh @cfenollosa I totally feel that. I don't want to have to ignore a new interest of mine.

@binyamin @nilesh I think you're taking that decision too seriously. Take a look at each community and join the one where you feel the most comfortable! :)

@cfenollosa hi! This is a great post I would like to translate into Russian, but it is licensed as no-derivatives. May I get your permission to do that?

@cfenollosa I joined fosstodon today after reading this and I feel right at home :)

Pedagog√≠a fediversal :) 

@cfenollosa Hola :) Entiendo que la intención es hacer pedagogía. Al lío, pues…

>If you tried Mastodon O no. ¬ŅY si te da por probar Pleroma? Esto es el #fediverso , una federaci√≥n y el Mastadonte solo es uno de los programillas‚Ķ

>and you ‚Äúgot bored‚ÄĚ quickly Me da la sensaci√≥n que subestimas el poder del dise√Īo dopam√≠nico intencional. Podr√≠amos debatir sobre el ‚Äúgrado de culpabilidad‚ÄĚ de las usuarias finales pero creo que perder√≠amos el foco‚Ķ

>you were using it wrong. Me parece una frase desafortunada… Entender los ecosistemas descentralizados no es moco de pavo…

>The Local Timeline is Mastodon‚Äôs greatest invention Yo dir√≠a que ‚Äúla local‚ÄĚ ya la ten√≠amos de antes‚Ķ El Fedi tiene 12 a√Īos, Mastodon solo tiene 4 √≥ 5‚Ķ

>How to choose the right server Jopetas… Solo promocionas al Mastadonte…

>Before clicking on ‚Äúsign up‚ÄĚ, always browse the local timeline, the about page, and the most active users list. Y a leerse el c√≥digo de conducta‚Ķ que luego se confunde la libertad de expresi√≥n con el derecho de admisi√≥n y se te muere la #katikornius jeje :)

Por cierto, al final del post pones tu dirección de mastodon pero es bonito y alentador visibilizarlo en nuestras webs también. Creo que quedaría mejor si te pusieras un iconito (en donde tienes los otros medios centralizados) y enlazaras a tu cuenta.

En fin, saludos y larga vida al #Fediverso

@cfenollosa So basically treat Mastadon like a Discord "server" with the option of viewing other servers for the best experience?


Great article! I was getting bored of Mastodon tbh. So it came at the right time.

@cfenollosa Great post. Totally agree that folks should not expect to migrate from Twitter, but instead make new friends.

@cfenollosa I found fosstodon on your list, checked it out and checked in. Thaks!

@cfenollosa Man this thing is massive ... gonna be fun scrounging around & learning the ropes.
