I wanna see how far this poll can go, vote and then boost please! 🌐

How long have you been in the fediverse?

Comment if timeframe is not listed!

@Reno >no option between 1 year and 2 years
@realcaseyrollins @Reno @e its also missing an option for "I have no idea how long it's been."

Haha 😂😂 I joined the #Fediverse when #Gab did so it’s not hard for me to figure it out

@realcaseyrollins @shebang @Reno @e I wrote a blog post on doing custom Mastodon CSS in 2018, and I remember trying GNU social too at one time, so I know I’m over the 5 year mark.

@shebang @e @realcaseyrollins well if I wasn't limited to 4 options it would have more, which is why it says to reply if it's not listed.

but @Reno you could definitely have divided the time differently: this is not big social, you don’t need to trick people into commenting for the ml model

cc: @shebang, @e and @realcaseyrollins

@Reno Come and join Blimey Social. We offer far more pill options 😉

@shebang @e @realcaseyrollins

I just noticed I wrote “pill” instead of “poll” 🤦🏻‍♂️

@Reno In November it'll be two years since I arrived to fedi as cheru

@cheru @Reno
In October it'll be two years since I arrived to fedi :blobcatgiggle:

@cheru @Reno @thebiologist1117 @frankie

@tio, how long have you been on fedi? I know you used to have a mastodon account before moving to Friendica and then to your own instance.

@futureisfoss @Reno @cheru @frankie @thebiologist1117 I think I had a mastodon account since like 3 years ago but didn't use it much at all. Only when I moved to Friendica more than a year ago I started to use it. Mastodon was a mess for me. Even now I could not use it, it is too limited and the way you reply and such is confusing to me. Like Twitter is. So Friendica made me stick with the Fediverse for good.

@tio @Reno @cheru @frankie @thebiologist1117
Its pretty cool that all of these platforms can communicate with each other, so everyone can choose the platform of their liking and still chat with everyone else, fediverse is awesome 🙂

@Reno If GNU social and count, then pretty long. I still have some patches from 2013.

In my first year on the fediverse I wasn't really active. I only started to become active when I created my current account.

😭 Missing option for between 1 & 2 years (me for another 2 weeks)

@Reno Erf, I'm really close to 5 years now, but still below so I voted 2. :p

@KekunPlazas @Reno More than 1 year but less than 2 years vote option seems to be missing

@HugeGameArtGD @Reno Yeah it's forbidden to be on Mastodon between 1 and 2 years.

@Reno had diverse accounts since 2012 but always leaving because there were to few exchanges on the subjects I like and too few people I knew. I have been back for some weeks and finally find what I need.

@Reno I think I am approaching a month of usage & I love it! I decided to do a solo instance of Mastodon as I believe that represents the best intent of the software.

@Reno I first started out 4 years ago. Stayed for about 2 years on and off. And I started again a few months ago. Now, I am here to stay.

@Reno Pretty much depends on what counts as starting date / platform...:


what's about 18 months?

it's not "less than a year"
nor "More then 2 years"

@Reno i voted more than 5 years, and then I checked and it's not until December it's been 5 years. I thought I created it earlier in 2017.
(I *could* count since I created an account, but I barely used it so I won't)

@Reno technically since 2019, though I've had quite a lot of absence throughout that (i wanna try stick around this time though)

@Reno I said more than 2 years, but I've been inactive a fair share of that time. My only fediverse thing is mastodon, but I started on here a few years ago, then stopped hanging here, and then came back in The Great Emigration

@Reno also more than a year, less than two years, also less than a year really actively and regularly, so I ticked less than a year

@Reno the case you're missing is
"Between 1 and 2 years"
