@mcrute @gruerproof Welcome! I find the community very friendly :)
Your feed might be quiet initially but as you follow more people, things will get more exciting.
To find your folks: check out the local feed, search up tags you're interested in, follow @FediFollows, and find people by topic via trunks (https://communitywiki.org/trunk)
Most of all, have fun and happy tooting!
