Special Interest & Local Instances

Special Interest Instances

I’m starting a list of special interest instances in the fediverse.
The requirements are:

  • less than 2k members
  • special interest that not many other instances have
  • no instance from the FediBlock blocklist.

This sounds a really good plan, perhaps get all these added to Trunk

that way, hopefully we can make it much easier to find and join instances.

I think it is also important to say to people that these topics are not explicit I would assume people joining tech.lgbt for example can still chat about sport for example.

I think we need to remember that a person may join an instance, but have a range of interests so someone may be into tech, science and sport, in which case they won’t want to join 3 instances, but may want to follow people on each, so we need to ensure people understand this is fine.
