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)
