Mastodon is a free, open-source social network. A decentralized alternative to commercial platforms, it avoids the risks of a single company monopolizing your communication. Pick a server that you trust — whichever you choose, you can interact with everyone else. Anyone can run their own Mastodon instance and participate in the social network seamlessly.

BE WARNED this instance may actually be unstable at times. It will likely be used for experimenting with settings and tweaks to Mastodon. So the place may experience outages, not federate reliably with the rest of the world, have posts go missing, or other technical faults. As such it's meant to be a chill, maybe kinda playful place. Time to see what we can do with this thing! Time to ˥∀IƆOS HƆ⊥I˥⅁

BE WARNED I (beatrix, the admin) operate this instance according to my own best judgement. I will block other instances, suspend users, modify this instance, etc etc as I see fit. SOMETIMES that involves consulting or negotiating with users of this instance, admins of other instances, developers that work on the mastodon code, etc etc. Sometimes it doesn't!

followbots from other instances will be blocked. please report them
