I tried to write as succinct a "How Mastodon is Different from (birdsite)" intro post as I could. Not sure I got it right.
Suggestions for tightening or clarifying it are welcome!
(Thanks @Canageek for the links to the 3 longer guides I included at the end.)
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
