I should clarify that while I am now hosting my own Mastodon server, it's currently configured to be single-user.

I'm aware though that my hosting plan gives me capacity for up to 100 user accounts. So I may open up registrations to the wider fediverse once I better understand what's involved with being an admin/moderator.


I've had a week to think about this.

I think my response if people ask "can I join your instance Bob?" will be "no, make your own!" 😅

This isn't a greediness thing. I think it's a cool idea for people to take control of their own data and computing. 💻

Besides, giving masto.host €5 a month to keep them running is going to work out better for the wider community than paying me $1 to spend my free time policing an instance.

@bobstechsite Same. I have no desire to have to manage other people’s behaviour. Hard enough keeping myself in check.

@bobstechsite I completely agree with the latter. masto.host is a gift to the world.
