Pinned toot

as an open letter to all of mastodon:

please, do something fucking different. don't just become another twitter alternative or twitter clone.

the reason many people came to this platform in the first place was because we were all sick and tired of twitter. slowly, all the things we were tired of seeing have been coming over here and it begs the question as to why this platform even exists anymore. whats the point of using something that's just like twitter when you can just use twitter?

hey, an announcement - i'm moving to my own instance!

i decided to make my own instance, preciouslittle.life, to try and control a bit better how i use mastodon, plus as just a fun project. @maples is my new main account / home and chances are if i was following you before i've probably already sent a follow request. my personal account is also moving there (@mappy)and if you were following me on that at sleeping town, you can request there.
thank you for everything chitter and sleeping town!

gonna also ask: where do y'all reccommend going for domains? porkbun's been one that's reccommended to me but i wanted to see what others have to say

in lieu of the recent sleeping.town announcement i wanna ask a question - does anyone know how good masto.host's services are?
specifically, i'm looking at the €7 "Light" tier. if its good i might consider using it and changing how i use mastodon a little bit.

you'll find me over at @maple and i'll only be letting friends in now. i won't be coming back on main or checking it again so if you do want to see what i'm up to, you'll have to go to my twitter over at @mplblm.

so... i've been thinking.

on one hand, i seriously want to leave mastodon. the shitposty, chaotic and twitter-esque culture its becoming is not why i came here over a year and a half ago, and many of the friends i made here have ended up leaving.

on the other though... i dont want to leave the friends I still have here behind. many of them are close to me and many i can only talk to through this platform.

so, i've decided to recede. i'm moving to my personal account permanently.

i'm seriously thinking about just leaving. i rarely even come onto my main account here anymore - most of my activity these days is over on my personal account with the friends i met here. now that this site has essentially become a second twitter there's not much left for me.

i liked this site because it *wasn't* twitter. it was something different and allowed me to actually connect with people, many of who are now close friends and even partners, and now its become just "that twitter alternative", "that site without nazis", the like

the moment people started branding mastodon as just another twitter alternative was the moment mastodon was fucked

i miss actually having a reason to come onto this site and being able to talk to new people about interests and niche things, not coming onto this site and seeing wave after wave of shitposts, just like twitter
