So, I was fully aware that might happen, but the fact only bitcoin and conspiracy stuff ended up in my trending list made me a bit sad. It was my intention anyway to remove everything again and then add more curated instances. (TBH, I would have expected more outright porn instead of “Free energy” and “Face masks harm you horribly, also they want to abolish cash” stuff).
It actually motivated me to look into setting up the instance more properly, and thinking about opening it up to a small/medium userbase that remains possible to moderate for me and perhaps volunteers. Just for having more curated instances in the network overall.
I saw the option in the settings to follow some sort of curated public indexes of instances. Are there andy indexes like that I should look into?
Some other tips and tricks you would have loved to have known when you decided to try out setting an instance yourself? Besides info missing, anything glaring at you, screaming “security risk” when looking at it?
