“I think that the biggest problem that Reddit had and continues to have, and that all of the platforms, Facebook and Twitter, and Discord now continue to have is that they’re not making decisions, is that there is absolutely no active thought going into their problems — problems that are going to exist in coming months or years — and what they can do to combat them.” http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/04/dan-mccomas-reddit-product-svp-and-imzy-founder-interview.html

H1 is an experiment in using the features of Mastodon to carve out a space for conversations about specific topics. The goal is to devote the local timeline (visible to humanities.one accounts and on the front page of the site) as narrowly as possible to discussion of the humanities. (FAQ: Local Timeline)
To that end, please mark personal and off-topic posts "unlisted." If you intend to use your H1 presence as your principle account on Mastodon, consider making "unlisted" your default privacy status and only making messages "public" when they're on-topic. (FAQ: Status Privacy)
