Anyone know a good federation relay that I should hook up to? Not sure how to find one...

@mastohost have you considered running a relay, even perhaps just for your hosted instances to use? Might be a nice feature...

@floppy I haven't really considered it, I haven't even looked deeply into relays but there are many issues that come to mind when thinking of running a relay. Mixed languages, content moderation, server costs, just from the top of my head. Not really something I would want to get into right now.
It would be nice if it was done right but just putting a server up and letting run would probably end up being a bad move.
