    besides the whole decentralised nature which is a plus anyway

    Fun until you realize that other instances can block other big instances from accessing them. Ex. Beehaw defederated lemmy.world: https://beehaw.org/post/567170

    And sadly for mainstream users, federation is too complicated compared to single instance :/

      Wow I almost joined yeehaw instead of here… They seem too quick to block other instances

      It’s not a surprise people joined those instances – yeehaw required approval. To many people that means “wait 24 hours” so they went elsewhere

        Not just that, but from what I saw they also require you to write a motivation explaining why you want to join. I always find it extremely hard to write down that kind of stuff in my native language, let alone English. Wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of people are put off by that as well.
