Hugo Gameiro is a user on masto.pt. You can follow them or interact with them if you have an account anywhere in the fediverse. If you don't, you can sign up here.

After doing more testing, I decided to go ahead and provide shared hosting for Mastodon instances.
This will be a trial but unless something goes horribly wrong, I believe that I can price it at €5/month for an instance of up to 100 users.
This can greatly diminish the cost of running small instances and remove the technical barrier from everyone who wishes to run their own Mastodon Instance.
Let me know what you think masto.host/#pricing-table

@hugo So I was wondering, do you do (or, do you think you can do) custom instances rules?

I mean say for example, 1280 characters limit but with CWs? Also, each Toot will get deleted in exactly 7x24 hours by default, but there's a toggle to keep a toot permanent (aka not-deleted), per toot? And combinations of customizations thereof?

These are all hypotheticals though, of course hehe 😅✌

Hugo Gameiro @hugo

@FerdiZ That could all be done.
Example @bea has created ephemeral.glitch.social
"toots on this instance are ephemeral; they disappear after a while (between 5 minutes and an hour)"
Also, changing the lengths for toots should not be a major problem, in theory at least.
But all of this requires that you fork the original code and know how to code the changes :)
