I just created a #Pixelfed account and everything is hunky-dory, except that it doesn't seem to federate with anything! Not with other Pixelfed nodes and not with other federated platforms. All I can see is the local results - and that's slim pickings at best. Is this a permissions issue related to my pixelfed server of choice only?
So, to rephrase this as a question: how do I find content from other Pixelfed instances, and how do I follow people on different #ActivityPub platforms?

It seems that the choice of which "facet" of the Federation (Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Mastodon, etc.) one inhabits depends mostly on the features available in that particular instantiation. Some of that might depend on the culture of the individual node -- I admit that I've almost completely ignored the "Local Community" functionality -- but with the ability to connect with anyone anywhere in the overall Fed, that seems like a secondary concern at best.
Friendica seems to have some solid advantages over Diaspora, namely:
- Forums (equivalent to G+ Communities)
- The ability to edit posts and comments
- Threaded comments
- The ability to talk to more other platforms
So, for Diaspora users: why are you using Diaspora? What's "better" about that platform than Friendica that I'm missing? Thanks!

I wonder how the federation deals with such things. I know podmins can block an individual user or a pod, is that correct?
But are there ways in which podmins communicate with each other about such things? To notify others of accounts/pods that try to spread horrible content?
I know many in the federation are heavily focused on free speech, but if I decide to host a pod in the future, I do not want to allow my members to be subjected to horrible things (if you don't like that, then don't register on my pod 😉 ). I think it would be very handy if people can warn each other about specific accounts/pods. At the same time, there's the issue that keeping a public list can act as a way for horrible people to find each other and it could be abused.
How does the federation deal with such things? Do we just assume pods like that will not infiltrate the bigger network because any pod with an even remotely human podmin will ban them? (Is that really a solution? Because: how many podmins will have to see such content first?) And how about fringe cases, like hate speech, with or without direct calls for violence? Or even more into the realm where many people think we ought to let it go: obviously fake news?
For the record, I do not care as passionately about making sure people don't see fake news as I care about making sure people don't see these things that make me reconsider my stance on the dealth penalty, but I would still prefer not to be subjected to it and not help it spread through my account or pod.

Q: are there any well working JSON-LD libraries or shall I just go the way I initially was going to, ie "it's all JSON"? 😀

My actual system is base OSRIC with some "secret sauce" OSR bits thrown in. Rounding out with a sprinkle of #Dragonsfoot Footprints articles and my own houserules wiki.
