Thinking about adding an FAQ to’s about page, including the obvious “Why not regular mastodon?” and “why dads and just not parents?”

The short answers are, btw, “while mastodon is a great foundation, the creators of the project are most interested in open- and cross-compatible groups, and have nixed some of the features I care about most in a small community where people are talking about their families.” And “this space is partially for stoking conversation about the meaning of fatherhood, culturally and practically, distinct from gender. I want that conversation to be front and center. What makes /you/ feel like a dad?”
