@claudia because there was no instance that fit quite what I was looking for. I don't want to be on a donation-based or subsidized instance. Ad-supported is what I feel most comfortable with & if this instance grows to the point where it needs monetary support that's how it will work.
Plus running an instance is fun and helps me learn :)
Open Streets MPLS will be Sunday 11am-5pm, and here's tinyfed.com's confirmed booth location - Lake Street just north of Powderhorn Park between 12th and 13th. Hope to see you there!
Tinyfed.com will have a booth at Open Streets Minneapolis on the 21st! - This is something I've wanted to do as a low key way to just raise my flag and talk to people who may be interested in the fediverse but haven't heard of it https://www.openstreetsmpls.org/lake_minnehaha
@firewally @divergentdave @Chelseaknits et all from mspsocial.net - would love to have equal representation of other instances if anyone else is interested in sharing the booth with me - boosts appreciated!
Tinyfed has been upgraded from periodic manual offsite database backups to automatic daily offsite database backups 🎉 🎉 🎉 🎉
This is a big improvement and a key step in efforts to shore up the case that Tinyfed 100% belongs to be on the https://joinmastodon.org/ server picker.
A general purpose Mastodon instance supported by ethical untargeted ads.
