@aidalgol @genericperson @HeartClock08 i think i made a small mistake when i made koyu.space. now instead growing bigger it is time to make it a "you are my friend" instance. when i started my first social network and koyu.space i didn't realize the purpose of it. i thought that it should grow bigger and bigger, but this is what my old psychologist said to me once about my first social network: "there will be a time for you that you cannot handle it once it grows big enough and why should people like me sign up for it when it's just you and your friends" and that guy was god damn right. i think koyu.space should be a friends-to-friends project now rather than another twitter.

@aidalgol @koyu @genericperson The problem is that people keep calling it "Twitter", but that's not just Twitter. The bigger a social platform gets, the more kinds of people you will meet there. Both the positive and the negative ones.

The fediverse is like Internet and every social place in general: it is neutral. You will meet people who will be nice to you, but you will also meet others who will try to hurt you. Because that's sadly how the world really is.

@HeartClock08 @aidalgol @genericperson and i know that, but i don't think i have the mental capability to take care of 400k people that were federating with us

@koyu @aidalgol @genericperson And I understand that. I don't think I could do it either, to be honest.

I was actually refering to the "some days, I think "the fediverse" was a mistake" reply.
Unless it was said as in "the fediverse was a mistake for me"?

@HeartClock08 @koyu @genericperson Oh, that kinda goes back to an old frustration I have with mastodon's format in general: that user-feed-oriented microblogging seems to foster hostility and flippancy more than topic-oriented forums, and seems harder to moderate.

@aidalgol @HeartClock08 @genericperson i was thinking about making a bbs or irc server at some point 🤔

@koyu @HeartClock08 @genericperson That'd be cool. A niche, retro-ish community (that aren't assholes, which is what I usually find).
