@PCI_Archaeology What are Pouets?
People? You can find all active people on this server in the directory. https://fediscience.org/explore
Mastodon is about having conversations with your friends, not about searching for term x and picking fights over that topic with strangers.
I cannot find the button, but I think this is a setting we could change. That would be a conversation to have. On a science server I do not expect people to pick fights as much & search to be more of a priority.
"Mastodon’s full-text search allows logged in users to find results from their own toots, their favourites, and their mentions. It deliberately does not allow searching for arbitrary strings in the entire database."
Fediscience is the social network for scientists.
