Hello folks dipping their toes in the fediverse :)

Please make sure you fill out your bios and make an introductory post so we know who you are and follow you.

If you’re here after following me from Twitter (sorry, Musk Social), ping me and let me know so I can follow you back.

Welcome! :)

@aral I guess I’m not the only expat from #twitter. Excited to see what it’s like in the Mastodon universe 😀! Thanks for spreading the word, as I would not have even know about such a space online. Now the question is how do the admins keeps the lights on without ads? And how do I support them?


@EAUnbound I’ve seen a bunch who use things like Patreon to allow community members to contribute to monthly costs, and I’ve also seen small servers like my own survive on a single financial backing which is usually just the Admin putting up the cost.

Personally I’m a big fan of crowdsourced funding for Instances.

I hope this helps even just a little bit.
