It's been a bit of a difficult week for a lot of people :birdheart:

I wanted to do something positive to end the week and apparently my stress response is to plant trees, so I've just added 350 mangroves to my Tree Nation Forest.

One for every member of Mastodon.nz (there's 341 of us now! 😱 ) rounded up.

Pew Pew Pew! :laserkiwi: :laserkiwi: :laserkiwi:

I don't know what the carbon cost of running a Mastodon instance is, but it's also 7000kg of CO2 offset, as well as helping restore mangroves in Madagascar.

@explorergrace I don't know if there are any conversion tools out there! But we're averaging 75watts~ at the moment (spike was intense migration heh)

@idanoo 🧐

Huh. I just did a very basic attempted conversion using some tools on the web. If I'm calculating it correctly (who knows??), the carbon cost of the .nz server would be approximately 180kg per year. So at 7000kg offset, I think we're looking good even if I am way off! 👍

@explorergrace Sounds like we need to scale some more 😉 Thoughts on adding ourselves to joinmastodon.org? (There isn't a lot on there and it's on the app homepage so would be a huge boost)

@idanoo 👍

Hmmm my only concern with adding ourselves to joinmastodon.org is what if we get a massive influx? Moreso than the last week. 😂

I assume admin would just boot anyone who was an asshole or spamming the place, but would that create a huge amount of extra work for you?

@explorergrace We definitely have the capacity, can always cap registrations if need be. Moderation should be okay, there are 3 of us and open to adding more as needed!

@explorergrace @idanoo I think once people realise this is a place run by volunteers and we don’t have to put up with their crap, they’ll learn. Hopefully.

Seems it’s mostly spam accounts we have to deal with that sign up to sell viagra or whatever; there are “free speech” instances that attract most of the annoying eggs elsewhere luckily.

@swansinflight @idanoo I think people here would be quick to report anything inappropriate as well.

@explorergrace Dang, you go Girl! How cool is that? I must find out more. Off to check out your link.
