People have asked me if having local-only posting somehow discourages federated posting.
I finally did the actual queries on our instance database, and after about a year of having local-only as an option we are at almost exactly 50/50 local vs federated posts.
65% of our accounts have been active in the last month, which is on the high side of normal for an instance with 80 accounts.
We post about 2x more *federated* posts than other instances with ~40 active users.
We have some people on Friend Camp who *almost never* post federated, and that's okay. Their presence here helps keep other people who *do* federate engaged and enjoying their time on Friend Camp!
@darius let's just pretend you did give a talk but you didn't federate it
@mewo2 I've decided to actually write this talk as an article for my Patreon backers which is basically the same thing
@darius cool, although it seems like something it would be useful to share with the fediverse more broadly
@mewo2 I'll probably share it at a later date with the public
