@josias It's kinda unfortunate that no frontend seems to make use of the option to pull timelines from foreign instances via API (unless that's disabled in their admin interface).
I only know of Mastoview (which doesn't seem to work very well anymore nowadays - see http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=benign.town&view=local for example), and Subway Tooter on Android has an option to load foreign timelines.
@galaxis I think having this as a backend feature would also be useful, so it syncs between clients. I think QOTO.org does this, but I haven't checked it out.
Basically, I'm not necessarily looking for an increase in post volume, but rather an increase of community.
Instead of merging everything into the federated timeline, this would enable viewing posts from specific instances, like those that share common values.
@pwarren Federation works fine, of course. This is just a suggestion for fostering inter-instance communities.
