Think I might shut down this instance, it's fucking pointless.
@bootblackcub I have another instance, Nuklear.family, that I've always posted more on. My partners don't even bother to post on here anymore, and every time I try to make noise about Fetish Church in the London scene I'm just completely ignored. I'm done with trying to convince cis people my ideas are interesting.
@reverend yeah, it's such an uphill struggle to get 0eople to join mastodon, let alone use it regularly instead of established social media sites
@reverend i'd be sad to see this instance go, but also running an instance takes time and money so no one could blame you for shutting down if it's no longer any fun for you

@reverend It's a good concept. But yes, it's very difficult to lure people over, however awful the usual stuff is; persistence is the key.
I'd vote to keep it going.
@porsupah Thank you, I needed that. It _is_ a really damn good idea, the only real good hyperlocal implementation of Mastodon I've run across if I'm being totally honest.
It'd be such a waste to throw it away now, and surely I'm not the only one so angry at how fucking cisgender, how heteronormative, how ENTIRELY FUCKING BORING the London scene is getting.
@reverend Thinking on that, not that I'm remotely connected (more's the pity), but any idea how LICK did/is doing? It sounded promising.
I'm sort of surprised there aren't any other /local/ instances. Or rather, local, but not specific to just one location. Maybe the past decade of "social" media's numbed people's expectations that effectively such a thing becomes nigh inconceivable vs just setting up accounts on all the usual You Belong To Us sites because Everybody Else™ does?
@porsupah Pedestal is in that location once a month, Roma used to also be in that space sometimes. Not sure if it runs regularly??
