Hey everyone, nice to meet you! My name is Evan and I am into the digital humantiies, and in recent months gained a ever growing passion for ActivityPub and the fediverse.

After hopping around several Mastodon instances, this is the one that finally feels like home <3

I was wondering what the invite rules are for this instance? Is it cool if I invite some of my friends? What about big fediverse promotion campaigns? Should I direct those to a different instance?

Also, you will probably see me posting a lot about @poetrygarden

It is the first Wordpress multisite and buddypress social media platform, with open registration that integrates with AP! (kind of-- one way syndication for now).

It's catered to literature publishing and portfolio building. I love this project and would love to get feedback from some folks here <3

@evan Helllllo. Our glorious leader @bgcarlisle should have the answers to your questions

@Cyborgneticz @evan :BlobCatSurprised:

Don't worry, it's not real glory, I'm just covered in a lot of sunscreen rn hahaha

As for inviting friends to Scholar, sure! We have a general focus on teaching and learning (very broadly defined) here, and our rules are a little different from other instances, so keep that in mind

If they're looking for "more Twitter" or "edgelord shitposting," Scholar might not fit

But generally speaking, anyone's welcome if they'll be respectful of others :)

@bgcarlisle @Cyborgneticz

Cool no problem! :) I might just mention it in a list of cool mast. instances in articles I publish down the road (planning on really trying to help popularize the fedi through Poetry Garden and related projects).

And yeah, the specific identity on this instance is what makes it so great! :)
