Hello! Thanks for the welcome @roadriverrail I'm looking forward to trying this whole Mastodon thing out again. This time in an instance that more aligns with my personal interests and social preferences.
(My last try, in a large instance, did not go particularly well.)
@seelix Yeah, the local instance here tends to be pretty cozy and is mostly through personal friendship networks. Of course, you can find the whole fediverse through here, but the local group is pretty intimate.
