This is a pretty small instance that I set up for friends, but for me is mostly a gateway to keep in touch with friends elsewhere on the fedi, as well as to meet new folks.
Registration is generally open unless there's some bot fuckery going on.
There isn't really a "theme" here but I'm happy to welcome anyone who is good-natured. I sort of want this to be the next evolution of that message board where you used to just go to hang out.
Hey peeps, I'm Stu and I run straylight.expectnomore.net. It's a small instance where I constantly try to cajole old internet friends into joining, but it's also open to anyone looking for a home online.
I post mostly about my pets, music, game development, and home improvement. And also usually links to weird shit.

Does anyone have suggestions for an online software for organizing mutual aid in a neighborhood? I'm thinking something like forum software, less ephemeral than things like Mastodon, and with email digest functionality. I'd prefer to avoid proprietary stuff like google groups, and definitely not locked into a certain social network e.g. Facebook.
(Never have to lose my baby in the crowd.
I should be laughing right now.)
