Even better :-) Never used it but looked into for self hosting, not a twitter fan so the research was quick. This was a year or two ago so...

Same here. I already have information overload.
The opposite here ! I don't have a twitter or facebook account, because I know what it means, so I get information from some websites.

I read the link provided by Lysander666 (Thank you !) to know more about Mastodon and I like what I read.

I don't know if I would be a constant and regular user, but I could try.

I' am stuck on the FB monstrosity. Or so I tell myself and questioning that heavily lately. It would be cool to see a headline, short message group for Slackware and related news and content. Things though take a life of their own...

Like reddit I kind of started migrating from Twitter when they decided to go political and go past their boundaries of providing a service as many other services are doing. We do not like what you say and censor you, but allow clearly illegal and immoral (so immoral that the atheist and various religious are equally disgusted) stuff. So I vote with the feet.

If someone is sucker enough (j/k) to deal with the stress and has the time for such a group please post. I bet there is a lot more that are silent that are willing to take a look in the least.

It would be pretty easy to set up a server, or an 'instance'. I'd consider it, though I know next to nothing about Mastodon at present and don't have much time to research it. It may be better if someone else had a go.

EDIT: If there's already one, can someone point neophytes like myself in its direction?

https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon


Ruby on Rails, a whole bunch of CPU cycle thief JS, and a database but a sane one: PostgresSQL. This kind of service tends to require a lot of resources and makes a VPS for it expensive. You either need cash laying around (who has that these days?) or a huge pipe and spare machine in the basement. Think Mattermost. Or Diaspora. Few people have the resources or time for such commitment to maintain such services when they start getting users.


Not to discourage but some reality to think about.



I' am a big fan of XMPP and have my own ejabberd server. Chat rooms may be an option and XMPP is decentralized and efficient. htop takes more resources idle than ejabberd idle does on Slackware 14.2. All you need is the erlang-otp SlackBuild.

I also run a GNU social instance at https://fossforward.com

I could setup a Slackware group if anyone is interested? You can also feel free to discuss FOSS related things there.

It would probably be easier to set up a Pleroma instance instead of a Mastodon one. Pleroma is much easier on resources (and thus cheaper for whoever's hosting the instance). It also has a larger character limit, better support for the ActivityPub standard, and it's not subject to Gargron's latest whims.

Recently Fosstodon.org launched and there are a lot of open source enthusiasts on it including https://fosstodon.org/@poetgrant
Debian is also present among others.
I think it's a logical place for us all to hang out if anyone feels like it. I was on another random instance before and it was too full of newds and weird shit to stay on via either the local or federated timeline so I left for fosstodon which a pretty specific group obviously...

I'm a big fan of XMPP, too. A Slackware chat room would be great.

would be especially valuable if it would be bridged to ##slackware@freenode (I stay away of freenode because it's tor-hostile)
