the last time i thought about cohost was pre-mastodon.boiler.social, and i distinctly recall thinking "they need to get the tip button working asap if they want to keep floating"
i now have an account and can confirm there is no tip button so i am not optimistic
i think the platform is kinda neat, it seems like a sort of. mini-tumblr? almost? but i really don't understand how it's... different, other than being made by people who have spent far too much time in the Valley's grinder
perhaps it's just too early to be passing any kind of judgement. i've parked a handle over there because namespace land rush and we'll see what happens
