I've been working on improving the UX of joinmastodon.org with @pamdrouin and the changes are now live.


The sign up section has been moved to a separate page, the confusingly interchanging usage of tech jargon like "instance" and "server" has been removed in favour of "community". The questions "can I move my account later" and "can I talk to people from other communities" is answered upfront. Categories are now at the front and the communities are grouped by language with a prominent language filter option. Communities that don't offer instant sign-up are now clearly marked as such upfront.

@Gargron mir ist gerade noch ein wichtiger Punkt aufgefallen.

joinmastodon.org arbeitet nur mit dunklem Hintergrund. Ich bin zwar kein Wissenschaftler, aber das ist NICHT der Hintergrund, den z.B. Frauen bevorzugen. Sie lieben es eher hell und FREUNDLICH. Das kann man selbst testen. Einfach mal nachfragen, welche Hintergrundfarbe die meisten Menschen in ihren Chat-Programmen verwenden. Dabei möglichst KEINE Techies befragen. 😉
