@_Sattam_ Hi. Yes and no. Every Mastodon Instance is an indipendent server with his own rules, policies and moderation. Said that, every Instance is in connection with the others (you are on mstdn.social and I am on mastodon.bida.im) somehow like email works (a gmail account can send an email to a yahoo account, right?). Hope that this will help you to understand how Mastodon works. 😊 @naukarshah @naukarshah @prasanna_s
Sorry but I have a bunch of n00b questions.
So how do I join social.coop and should I join it?
What happens to the current account I'm using? Will all the followers from this one move to the other one?
@Memeghnad @prashere @naukarshah @prasanna_s Even I'm not sure about all the details, but my understanding is people can follow you across communities. Each community can have it's own set of rules. I think the point of moving to a bigger and reputed server is that that server would be better funded and possibly more mature rules and admins.
@varkychen @Memeghnad @prashere @naukarshah @prasanna_s Exactly: every Instance is an indipendent server with his own community, policy and moderation. Also, every Instance can decide to interrupt with Instances that permits bad behaviour like trolling. For that reason here is very easy to isolate harrassers or content that you cannot stand.
On the question of "plain" Memeghnad handle - you can't have it as you need to identify with a server. The full identifier is only required only when composing toot, auto-linked in TL.
You can host personal instance and have a identifier Memeghnad@Memeghnad.me :)
