Here is some unsolicited advice to any fediverse newcomers. Since there are a lot of different services and instances within those services, you probably are feeling overwhelmed trying to decide one to join and if the one you picked is correct for you. You shouldn’t put too much thought in at first and join any instance. After spending time on one, you’ll learn more about the fediverse and probably will find another instance that fits you more.
Since all the instances are connected, there is no loss to deleting one account and moving to another one (other than the time spent migrating). You can still follow whomever you want and followers can stick with you on your new account. This is a big benefit federated services has over siloed services.
This Mastodon instance is primarily for ChicoCA locals, people who have left ChicoCA, and/or people who just love ChicoCA.
