Out of curiosity, I've set up https://plausible.io/ to collect some stats about this Takahē instance. I'm fully expecting the number of (non-bot) users to remain in the single digits. The fediverse works with everyone viewing the content from their local instances. It should mostly track myself and anyone I share I direct link.
In related (good) news, uBlockOrigin will detect and block self hosted plausible.
