I’ve been transitioning to mastodon and exploring hosting an instance. It seemed like the epinowcast platform could be a good home for this instance?
The key pause has been having to commit to moderation which I strongly don’t want to do. That means an individual instance. However, I thought if others were interested we could keep it small and invite only? That would essentially have the same hosting cost as if I ran it for myself so happy to shoulder that.
