Or, on mobile/tablet through the Mastodon official app, choose “Pick another server”, type in penfount.social and select it. Go through the signup process.

If you’d like to see a wider variety of topics, you may sign up on any general-purpose Mastodon server.

How to join

Follow @penfount@penfount.social. On the webapp, type this in the search bar and it should come up, click follow. You should be followed back shortly (generally immediately, but may take up to a few hours). Once you’re followed back, you can post to the group.

To post:

Make a post and include the hashtag #FountainPen or #FountainPens. @penfount will see this and boost your post out to the group.

Replies to threads do not need a hashtag. However, using a hashtag will create a new thread, if you want one; it will still be linked to the original thread.

Follow @penfount@penfount.social or go to the community profile page.
