Hey, what tilde are you a member of?
Any recommendations? I personally am drawn to tilde-pink because its hosted on NetBSD and it seemingly attracts BSD users but would love to hear some thoughts and know where some good content is.

I'm on tilde.town. I chose it because I liked their policies and it seemed nicely sized and active. I've been satisfied enough that I've not bothered looking to any other places, but I'll admit I was almost convinced by pink purely for being pink.

I'm also on tilde.town for the same reasons as twee. I had an account on tilde.black, but somehow managed to lose the password. Not really sure why they even need an extra password, aren't ssh keys enough??

- Depending on the tilde, you can freely host websites, gopher, git, email, irc bots & bouncers
- Build group projects
- Socialize

You should browse:

I considered it at some point, but I don't need any web/git/gopher/email hoster, because I host everything myself. For the socialization bit, I joined the IRC channels over there and didn't feel like I was missing something. I'm however eager to join a few tech related communities like nixers for example. What do I miss by not having a tilde account ?

I made an account on tilde.town but I don't really know what to do there. I guess it's not really for me.

I like the historical connotation of tilde accounts (back when the internet was young, most people only had a ~username at some university) - but in 2020 when hosting your stuff is cheap and easy, that’s it, mostly.

I kind of have one, at my university (as jkl mentioned), but sadly I appear to be the only one who uses it as a tilde, and not just cloud storage.

But I too have my own VPS, and as far as I know, I got one, before tilde-sites got more widespread, but if that hadn't have happened, I would have probably started using a tilde, as I do like the idea.

I like that people are doing very simple sites over-there, no JS, no heavy css, mostly browsable in something like lynx, there should be more of such sites on the web. I don't like centralization/federalization, you don't really need it, it's necessary for something like a chat program, but not general stuff like sites. Why would you subdue yourself to a single 'dictator', they can block or ban you like you could be banned on reddit, twitter, facebook. same thing, just different site style.

tilde.black is gone now, which is a great shame!

I suppose I don't have any great need to be a part of a tilde, but I'm just after some good chats. Much like we have here and on the nixers irc. But because I live in a different time zone to most of you all (Australia) I tend to miss out on a lot of the chat. Lately I've just been seeking good community vibes in unconventional places, for which tilde fits the bill.

I'm signing up to 3 at this stage:
tilde.town - Most people seem to be on this one
tilde.pink - because NetBSD and because pink
aussies.space (aka aussietilde) - Because aussie.

Side note:
Interestingly, on https://tilde.club/ you can see that there were no new member from 2014 to 2019, and then a handful have joined this year. I think that might be the case for other tildes too. Same thing with gopher.. people are edging back to these decentralised parts of the web. Probably a good thing.

I know we spoke on irc about this, but for the benefit of the forum: rawtext.club is a great community for asynchronous conversations, and “slow” social interactions

Yes, thankyou! I'm glad you mentioned it because I had already forgotten.

How long do they usually take to register a person? I signed up last week, still no answer?
