Hi people of Qoto! Nice to meet you, my name is Evan.

I LOVE the innovations on this Mastodon instance. It is truly inspiring, especially the group service you developed on!

I was wondering, I noticed that the domain is around $2000 USD on Namecheap first year only, (a mere 13$/year after that !! !!) .

I personally would be willing to contribute 200 $ to the devs of Qoto to purchase that domain name and host a federated group service on it.

Having as an available asset would be a huge service to the Fediverse! A dream come true!

Would anybody else be willing to contribute funds towards a fundraiser to make this happen?

Please let me know and I can set up a liberapay, get in contact with the owners to make this a reality!

High hopes for the future,



You can see it as a problem or a challenge. If you decide to take it as a challenge:



Good luck.

re: AI 

Interesting. You wrote the original or one of for the general case?

Most people prefer images of demons to those of angels, I think mainly due to the hollywoodean image they have of .
Thei’r so wrong! Allow me to show you the real angels.
This is the of from 10:11-14,20-21

When they moved, they would go in any of the four directions, without turning as they moved. For wherever the head faced, the cherubim would go in that direction, without turning as they moved.
Their entire bodies, including their backs, hands, and wings, were full of eyes all around, as were their four wheels. I heard the wheels being called “the whirling wheels.”
Each of the cherubim had four faces: the first face was that of a cherub, the second that of a man, the third that of a lion, and the fourth that of an eagle.

These were the living creatures I had seen beneath the God of Israel by the River Kebar, and I knew that they were cherubim. Each had four faces and four wings, with what looked like human hands under their wings.

And some that correspond, more or less, to the above description. They look so much more and impressive than the images of demons! *
