I'm pretty glad I have my own instance in the fediverse, but think of everyone in all of these situations:
- Don't have any technical know-how on how to run a Linux server
- Can't buy an instance on masto.host, or they don't know they could do that
- Not part of any community yet
They'll just naturally pick one of the biggest ones, as in most likely the flagship instance run by the dev himself.
I guess the best you can do is to encourage these people to switch instances and join yours.
This instance is mainly for the graphic calculator community, but is open to programmers, artists and related fields.
This is an instance for those who used to put games and hack on their TI-83+ instead of actually doing their math homework on it back in high school. Those who picked up programming because it's fun. Those who will put their favourite programming languages to creative uses and maybe make up new ones. You are encouraged to show your projects off on this instance and show other users of the fediverse what you're able of.
Mostly everything is allowed, but just keep it friendly, okay? No abuse, use common sense. We're just a bunch of nerds here. All hail the mighty walrus.
