What will help #Spoutible successfully create a real caring, connected community is the #Spoutible team has done everything in their power to give us control over our own experience on this platform.

It’s up to us what we do with this opportunity.

Can we #echo this to welcome new people?

#Spoutible has given us the tools and resources to allow us to create our own experience. It is up to us.

This platform requires a LOT more intention, engagement and trusting and dialogue with others.

There are real, real people here.

To create a positive experience here we need to be accountable, intentional in who we follow, the topics, we post what we're gonna choose to advocate for.

IMO, you get what you put out (invest yourself in) here on #Spoutible

This is a good thing. Cause this platform mimics real life.

You are the algorithm.

If you don't like watching your timeline and invest some more time, searching and engaging with people to find your "pod".

Thread summaries, another first and a feature I use. Sometimes, I use it to scan threads when I’m short of time.

News: Being able to select which news sources show up in my feed is phenomenal.

Group Chat: was not something I expected and have yet to use. That said, I can see it being useful

Definitely can. I’m a little miffed that those of us who are not new tend to be yesterday’s news.

Sorry, I’m just not my usual sweet self today.

There is no doubt that joining a platform and breaking into the OG takes time and effort.

Social media is time consuming and requires a lot of patience.

On this platform the effort produces a” net positive” return on effort. In my experience.

100%! We can't let the enemies this platform inexplicably has destroy the refuge that @cbouzy has given us here. We stick together, we win. Its that simple. I was skeptical but didn't take long to realize this is the real deal. This is exactly what Dorsey promised with bluesky, so they hate us here

This is the first platform that seems to offer what I am looking for. The bird and the others fall far short of genuine engagement and connection. I am happy to help the cause. Such nice folks here :)

Exactly, sir. We're on the cusp of letting things ride in the right or wrong direction. Canada can't get complacent.

Just digging in but so far my only complaint is I can't find where to set it so posts in my timeline show a date stamp in my time zone. Seeing posts from the future is ....????

Scheduling posts is coming, I’m not 100% certain but I think scheduling will be part of an affordable subscription.

I wish it was an app. I can only get it through the web. Maybe I'm not doing something correctly?

I would be open to paying a nominal fee for a premium package. I believe $3.99 was proposed at one point. Sounds reasonable to me if it helps support @cbouzy in hiring the best workforce available to support this platform and build out new and better enhancements.

Agree, although I want everyone to have access.

I’m actually more concerned that @cbouzy creates some kind of profitable model. OK with me if it’s (carefully selected) ads. He deserves to profit from his expertise and sticking his neck out. The man of the hour.

Nah, I don’t need anyone other than myself in control of who can respond. So far I have not yet seen high ratings, so anything to worry about. And why reject newcomers from responding, we all been there - recently?

I support a few artists monthly, have added Bot Sentinel to that monthly list. Later, I expect advertising will pay the bills, for now, if you have the ability to chip in and you believe in this project, please do.
