@bhtooefr@calvin That, and this may be the case, you really need to have a strong in-instance community to interact with. With just four users, it very much looks like "I'll start my own instance with blackjack and hookers".
@bhtooefr@calvin Yeah. There's definitely a good justification for going on a big instance. Part of that depends on how you want to use it and I think that's part of what makes it a liiiiittle bit of a thing that essentially presents itself as "for" techno-elites.
@calvin@bhtooefr We'll see. and it was noted on bolix yesterday that we are on an old version (I guess 1.6 and 2 is out?) so that was a bit of a thing. that may make it better, but the pictures I've seen on the GitHub still show this interface, so there's that.
@samis@calvin@bhtooefr There's one that simulates twitter, I'm fine with the interface, but it took a few moments. Calvin literally set up the server last night, so it's not *that* bad, but I don't know what it would be like to try to introduce new people to it.
