I have decided to chance my mind and head over to shigusegubu. After realizing that the hosting platform didn't really at all change from the region and noticing that some of the users I follow were not displaying on my feeds, I felt that this is the best place to go. I will keep kawen as a backup tho.
I apologize for fediverse hopping this sudden as I really don't like doing that that often. I do usually stick to one place at a time.
