Many register on Mastodon.social to join the #fediverse. It is perceived as the easy choice allowing wider reach.
People tend to overthink the choice of their home #Mastodon instance, but there's some truth to the worries. From a small instance, it might be harder to reach an audience scattered on many other small instances. Often you rely on a pre-existing network of contacts, either on or off-fediverse, to boost or follow you. (#Introductions can help.)
If you're a #MastoAdmin, consider joining or running your own (for the instances closest to you).
There’s an invite-only relay run by @aussocialadmin specifically to connect Australian instances. ausglam.space is connected, it seems to work well.
Having said that, I have Trends turned off on ausglam.space because it’s just not very useful for us and I don’t have time to whitelist things. Originally pretty much every trending hashtag was porn related, which was exceedingly boring.
@pierobosio Thanks for trying. I understand. Did you feel a few instances in particular were problematic (in which case it could be enough to silence/suspend them)?
No, I don't like to suspend instances. The main problem is that most of the posts are in languages other than English and Italian.
Yes, however, I want to keep my instance open to each language, if i need to follow a German account, for example.
@pierobosio Maybe it will be better now: https://respublicae.eu/@praetor/108736336529813155 . Took me a few hours of work. 😓
Well, That's good.
Europe has been able to make the single euro coin, but has not yet managed to make a single language.
