I'd like to ask you people to boost this post to see how long it'd take for it to reach someone else from my town (Westervoort, The Netherlands).
Of course, that implies that I'm not the only one here that uses Mastodon, but hey, part of the challenge :)
Starting on the 18th of August 2020 :)
Ladies, Gentleman and everything in between, we've done it!
I've gotten in touch with a person in my hometown (frankly enough, he/she lived even closer than we'd thought).
Sadly, said person did not want to get announced here for his/her privacy.
Thanks everyone who has participated!
@Alexis Well, now you (kinda) know me : >
@finlaydag33k You made it to Tulsa same day.
@BalooUriza neat : >
Kinda the other side of the planet but hey, maybe someone there manages to get it closer again!
@finlaydag33k dat is precies de andere kant van het land!😅
@basvanhaastregt Oof :p
Nouja, het schiet in iedergeval wel op :)
Ik had er al eentje die 2 uur verderop woont (wss ook ongeveer de andere kant van het land, of onze buren).
De reach in ene dag is al best groot : D
@finlaydag33k zeker waar dat het in een enkele dag al ver gekomen is!
You found someone yet?
@CountZero Sadly not yet.
I have seen three people from the Netherlands fly by, but no-one from my hometown.
Considering we have around 15k people here, there should atleast be a fair chance I'm not the only one from here on Fedi... Even if I'd loosen the rules a bit towards (directly) neighbouring towns/cities (and considering Arnhem is one of them...)
Good luck then😊
@CountZero thanks :)
@SwooshyCueb Let's hope he'll be able to help out :)
(also, now you know two!)
@finlaydag33k I had to double check if I was reading a post from Facebook's Mastodon instance :-)
