Aprs to Fediverse. Some questions (polls will follow based on this poll's outcome)
Considering anyone could just put your callsign in the "from" field, I don't think it's desirable to accept toots directly from aprs and put them info your main account.
So, should it be a new instance like M0YNG@aprs.mastodon.radio, or a different account like M0YNGfirstname.lastname@example.org?
@M0YNG honestly, I'm 50/50.
@kb1gim that's why I'm doing this poll 😁
I'm hesitant to run a 2nd instance just for this, unless I can find a light weight fediverse server.
The next poll would be if we mark the accounts as a bot, to make it clearer that there isn't a human checking the messages.
If that helps you decide?
I'm for a separate instance, simply because the functionality would be limited if you'd choose to keep it aprs only - so then a really minimal fediverse server would be enough, the one which couldn't even follow other users
