If you're currently on a massive server like, you might want to consider moving your account to a smaller server.

You can keep your followers when you change servers, here's how to do it:

You can find reliable servers at (all the servers listed there agree to the covenant at Try to pick one with fewer people.

There are lots of good things about smaller servers:

-Better moderation, because there are more staff per member.

-Smaller servers tend to have more personality, with a village feel.

-The local timeline on smaller servers is much more readable.

-Smaller servers protect the Fediverse as a whole from being taken over, because lots of smaller servers are harder to buy than a few big servers.

-It's easier to make a difference on smaller servers. It's easier to discuss things with the admin and other members.

It is surprising how easily i seem to have forgotten ever using the birbsite

I love art and it's great getting all the art follow recommendations. But i noticed art accounts for like 80% of my follows, and i am wanting more game-dev stuff.
I know it's also a function of how energetically @Curator boosts these posts, but i don't want to unfollow them.
Is there a game-dev "fedicenter" somewhere that i can follow?
Thanks for any advice!

How often do you use the Fediverse? (Mastodon, Pleroma, Misskey etc.)

Throwback Thursday to when I painted Thor going fishing with the giant Hymer. Thor baits a large hook with an ox head, which Jörmungandr bites. Thor pulls the serpent from its depths, and readies his hammer to kill it. Hymer goes pale with fear - he knows that if the snake's head rise above the water, the world will end. As Thor goes for the kill, the giant cuts the line, leaving the serpent to sink beneath the waves.

Still didn't feel well when #artfight 2021 started so I only managed to do one single artwork. I'm now running out of artworks to post, because depression slowly took over my life, even more.

May I remind you that our Android app's development began in January. The speed at which it reached its current state is phenomenal. @grishka and @samhenrigold did a phenomenal job.

working on the cyber-themed GUI. Gotta stop fiddling with this and use crude placeholder-work just to make something playable already!

.@jennatar just shared this TikTok of DALL-E 2, an AI powered image generator, and it's both exciting and terrifying.

(reposting with hashtags) Hi all. I am not a professional game maker, i am just a modder. Atm i am making a TC mod for the Torchlight2.exe/OGRE engine. Of course it is going very slowly, but its moving. I just need to stay motivated. 😅

phanjam boosted The fediverse is not just built on Mastodon, and that's the beautiful thing about it! :meownwn:

There's other software besides Mastodon, like Pleroma and Misskey, which are Twitter alternatives., which is a blogging platform. PeerTube, which is a YouTube alternative, and so on!

The fediverse is extensible, and that in itself is really powerful.

Which one do you use most?

Reply to explain. Boost for bigger sample.
