Mastodon has a stance that accounts should be personal. However, in my experience through several underground editorials, and also seeing people making fun media projects together, i can see how entertaining collaborative blogging/channel maintenance is for both makers and readers.
Currently, microblogging is the most dominant federated activity, but amount of quality content still feels not enough to make a serious pull to at least read fedi regularly for an ordinary person. At most, i share 3 fediposts a month with my irl friends, and it is mostly art or unusual offers that one can see only on fedi.
Commercial companies flooding the fedi timelines would be bad, but making it easier for teams of individuals to form and to do media together would be extremely nice. “If you want something to happen, make it easy”
My first idea for this was an app in which it is NOT possible to post alone, but which has a staging area so you can team up and brainstorm ad-hoc.
The accounts in this should be fragile and fleeting by design. 2 weeks without a post? destroy! 2 weeks a teammember does not do anything? Teammate marked as dormant. Less than 3 active members left? Destroy!
Naturally, the goal is to make it work with teammates logging in with existing accs on different masto/misskey/pleroma/lemmy servers, but it is not required for start. A bit of a play-mode relaxed server, let’s play an editorial.
A more ephemeral bootstrap version than an app would be to have it as hackathon-like month-long events.
It is marked as a lift because it takes almost nothing to participate in, but leaves a player with a fun experience and hopefully a working team,
