I run a website (PractiScore.com) with a population of about 100,000 competitive shooters. Facebook and other “big tech” platforms and their anti-firearm policies are always a problem for us and our users. Additionally, most of the community would be considered “conservative” or “libertarian” and I see my friends constantly struggling with Facebook/Twitter censorship of their viewpoints.
I’m considering establishing social.practiscore.com Diaspora pod in order to provide our community with an uncensored, safe for the long term, social media platform.
We recently added a discourse instance with SSO/Oauth with our existing login structure for practiscore.com. Is that doable for a Diaspora pod? Instantly, it would have 100K users.
How is performance on a pod of that size? What scale server and other resources should I expect to bring up to successfully run it, if it is possible?
How are videos handled? Our community generates a lot of videos of our sport.
Are there any issues that obviously come to mind as you consider somebody doing this?
Thanks very much,
