Staying with Mastodon

September 10, 2018

After playing with Pleroma for the last couple of days, I have learned a lot (see archives for notes) and have had a lot of fun tinkering. In the end though, it's still a bit rough around the edges and there are some issues that are keeping me from using it as my main Fediverse software.

That said, I really like the software and hope that Lain keeps up the excellent work on the software as it is looking to be a great alternative to Mastodon.

I will find some time this weekend to get a test/personal instance running at home on a Raspberry pi so that I can keep up an instance around and keep it updated to see how development is going with it.

Here are some of the minor things that kept me from using Pleroma right now. They are minor and shouldn't hold people back from using Pleroma themselves.

Again, Pleroma is awesome. I really like it, but it's not ready for me right now, though I have high hopes for it in the future and will continue to play with it. My Pleroma instance ( will be decommission and I am moving back to using my Mastodon instance, even if it costs a little more to run.
