Hey fediverse! This might be a slightly awkward question, but what are your fav servers of the fediverse and why?
I'm still writing on this one German blog posting about Mastodon, and I have some, but would really appreciate the input. Thank you!
@TQ the obvious stuff for obvious reasons:
chaos.social and social.tchncs.de both because they have a nice community and are tech related.
@TQ if a look back into the past is also allowed: playvicious.social was nice, as it was a Black instance in the otherwise very white fediverse.
@TQ I know a lot of people were very fond of niu.moe
My personally fav is (of course) octodon, one of the longest-running fedi instances. It has no specific features (apart from having a great admin) but is is a pretty safe space.
@TQ besides the ones that I'm part of (this one, rage.love and tabletop.social): probably merveilles.town and weirder.earth. There's a lot of creativity coming from those and random cool stuff. Also some very small instances with only a handful of users for different reasons but in general they tend to be better moderated.
Mention on sexism and racism
@moth you know, it's not so much admins choosing what to talk about. I can talk about sexism, racism and other hurtful stuff, no problem. I can share whatever I like.
It is engaging in behaviors of oppression that gets users and instances blocked. Which I very much appreciate!

re: examples of sexism
@moth yeah, like getting dic pics sent? Getting doxed? Your face in a porn pic? That kind of "disagreement".
You know nothing, Jon Snowflake.
re: examples of sexism
@moth hey, you know what, I think we got one of these casual disagreements here!
I won't listen to you belittlement, you won't acknowledge my experience. That's fine.
Leave me be, go away. Live your life in peace. Bye!
@TQ post.lurk.org because it is small, the community is lovely and more lively than the name of the instance might suggest :)
@TQ my own. Because my house, my rules.
It's only there for me, but I'd open it up for family if they cared.
You know that feeling in college when you find one of your lecturer/teacher super cool and you want to hang out with them?
Scholar.social feels like a teachers' breakroom crowded with cool teachers like described where the conversation can switch from neoliberalism to plunderphonics in no time (and never ever gets pedantic).
Also appreciate it for the serious community standards.
I hope it's ok to keep the answers coming @TQ ?
Because every day, more "things I like or find interesting about instances" are coming to my mind.
Today: I never used one, but think I like instances running the #hometown-fork, as I imagine the ability for instance-only toots helps create a better community feeling.
friend.camp would be one of those
