@phildini welcome back!
The normal eddies of ‘this instance isn’t being moderated & is now full of Nazi’s’ discussion can be caught up on fairly quickly via # FediBlock, the only other thing of note is that the new “official” mastodon app disables unlisted posting, the local timeline, and the federated timeline which everyone has of course found to be a ah, questionable decision
You now know enough to safely pretend you never left :P
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.
