@jomo We'll keep an eye on the temperature, you keep an eye on our liability.
@tao I'm that they've probably forgotten it?
People have asked me if having local-only posting somehow discourages federated posting.
I finally did the actual queries on our instance database, and after about a year of having local-only as an option we are at almost exactly 50/50 local vs federated posts.
65% of our accounts have been active in the last month, which is on the high side of normal for an instance with 80 accounts.
We post about 2x more *federated* posts than other instances with ~40 active users.
My theory is that having local-only posts encourages a stronger community, which encourages more posting in general, which leads to more federated AND more local posts.
I believe that offering local-only posts *strengthens* federation.
(Comparative stats above were collected by me looking at the instance/activity endpoint on similarly sized servers to Friend Camp.)
Picked up this brand of milk one day because it was the only 1 quart bottle in stock. Figured the old school heavy glass bottle was a gimmick, but no, you can actually return the bottle to the grocery store where you bought it, get a deposit, and the creamery will reuse the bottle. https://www.homesteadcreameryinc.com/our-products/milk/
@sajan Finding a good translation into English is tough. I wrote a post about some of the issues I encountered with the version I recently read: https://lrhodes.net/writ-divine/addendum-bow-shiva/
@rusty I try not to quote anything from the first five paragraphs so it looks like I read a lot of the post I'm linking to.
