Hello! I'm new to this instance and to Mastodon. Would like to know what exactly a federation is and what being on this site is like (=^_^=)
@mewmew Thank you for the welcome!
@lunarised Surely it's unparalleled to the degeneracy of Reddit.. right?
@vivi Where's your saddle man I can't just mount a horse without the gear
@vivi If you say so, let's take this bad boy out to the parking lot
@Elfie I've been trying to maintain my status as a simple anime enthusiast for a long time now but I can feel the effects of the anime kicking in.. I- かわいい!!
@nerthos it's an uphill battle, huh
The best example of federation I can think of is email. How you can communicate with someone using a different provider (server) than the one you're using (i.e. you, using Hotmail, can communicate with someone using Yahoo or Gmail.)
As far as this instance, it's really nice! It's really comfy, everyone is pretty nice, and it's just a fun place!
@easthighNerd so you're able to communicate with people in other instances as long as you have an account with an instance, like email providers? That makes sense, thank you! And hopefully this is a nice instance :D
@Elfie which languages would you use to create your own instance? Also, could you perhaps link to the big instances?
@nerthos I think I'll be using this anytime I try to recruit more people into Mastodon and the like
@nerthos That's a relief, I'd been wondering if I was only allowed to have one singular account
@hakui gold subscription?
@yourlocalimouto hello! im also new,
All your moe needs! A kind, generalistic instance where everyone is welcome! Important: if you sign up, be sure to check "spam" for your confirmation email if it does not appear.
