So I’ve been thinking of making a second account dedicated exclusively to boosting people who need money/help. This way those with the means to contribute have one place to go to look through requests, like a Fediverse version of Gofundme if that makes sense. I wonder if that would increase visibility or be useful in any way to do something like that.

Well I’ve gotten a lot of favs and several boosts on this so it looks like maybe interest is there. Next step, are there any admins who want this on their server? I was thinking of @gimgerrroot@stardew.city because that’s where a lot of the help requests I see come from but we’ll see. Still wondering if there really is a need/use for this. Thoughts? Suggestions? Is this a good idea?

@Leannefaith i don't see the orignal post so im not sure what what the correction is for/about haha

@Leannefaith the only thing it makes me worried about (as does with most compilations of marginalized groups of people) is that folks will use the account for harassment

but yeah it doesn't sound too bad. it's not something im interested in hosting or anything tho

@gingerrroot makes sense, and it’s the reason I am asking for input. That’s something I didn’t think of.

tl;dr= no fascists, no bullying, no doing fucked up shit. You know what that means. Otherwise a lot of us are socialists, leftists etc. Dont bully people either. Or start witch hunts.
