"These five people that constantly shitpost are the backbone of mastodon."
This place is full of people that have taken the platform into theirno own hands and are actually building stuff with it. Your favorite shitposters are the celebrities of mastodon, in that they do essentially nothing but entertain you.
Fuck all the way outta here.

@Tetra i mean, lots of people have built instances. Any admin is more of a backbone that any poster that uses that admins instance. There are people creating co-ops, community forums, platforms for artists, mastodon forks because the main dev sucks, there are people that work as network alert systems for local and online abusers/harmful instances. What an odd question, it seems quite obvious to me what people are building here.
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
