Are you a member of any ~tilde's - pfr - 23-11-2020

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??

Same here, I'm on tilde.town.

What can you do with such an account?

- 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.


RE: Are you a member of any ~tilde's - pkal - 24-11-2020

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.


RE: Are you a member of any ~tilde's - stratex - 24-11-2020

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.


RE: Are you a member of any ~tilde's - eye - 24-11-2020

I just registered for tilde.town

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

personally, i'm on the majority of them that are mentioned on tildeverse.org, just for the craic really


RE: Are you a member of any ~tilde's - pfr - 24-11-2020

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.


RE: Are you a member of any ~tilde's - eye - 01-12-2020

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