Hi! Given the influx of new users, I figured this is the right time to post about this!
I’m not a millionaire, I’m not a CEO. I’m just a guy in my 20s who runs a Pokémon Mastodon server for fun, experience and my love of online communities.
I’m not in for the money and have no plans to monetize donphan in any way shape or form. This is a passion project, and I’m giving some of my own time and money every month to keep it running. I do everything my myself, from customizing the Mastodon software, to running the server, to moderation and community management.
If you think like me that having these kinds of online social spaces that are not owned and run by corporations and billionaires, then you should consider, if within your means, supporting your instance admin so they can keep it up for as long as possible.
