How I feel sometimes when trying to get people to join.

Trying to get a friend to join but he says it sounds like he’s being invited to a cult
I wonder why? Is it just because it's a less-populated playground, or is it due to the types of random public content around?

Or is it something else?

@Adam Clark I don't know, probably it's just how enthusiastic I probably sound compared to talking about other things. :-)

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Server went down, of course while I was away. Gonna be catching up on a loootttt of posts now...
Hi @JB Carroll. Oh, that doesn't sound like much fun! Well hopefully the recovery will go smoothly. Cheers, -Randy

Thanks guys! The workers are still cranking away on getting posts. Don't know what caused the shutdown, all I had to do was restart!



 

Welp.
