I have updated joinmastodon.org to exclude mastodon.social from the picker, because other servers need some new user love too!
@Gargron NO ONE ENTERS NO ONE LEAVES
@Gargron That's awesome! Spread the love!
@Gargron you've been cursed forever by the tumblrs may god have pity on your soul
@Gargron no one gets in! no one gets out!!
Thank you for this initiative! 😊
@Gargron WE'RE UNDER RADAR NOW, .SOCIAL USERS GO FUCKING FERAL
@Gargron Servers on 🔥 yet? X3
@Gargron Did you have a love overdose?
@Gargron It's because of that one post on tumblr that specifically mentioned mastodon.social
@Gargron Thank you! And the other huge ones?
got a little overwhelming i bet lmao
@Gargron tbh you didn't have to do it like that (like closing regs coulda been less drastic) but I do commend the action!
@jalcine Closed registrations servers also don't appear on the picker so I feel like this was the less extreme option as we don't need to turn down people who come here through old links
@Gargron ahh okay okay - didn't know that!
@Gargron a ver si es verdad criatura que el dedo no me da para silenciar.
@Gargron We at toot.io have some free resources 😋
@Gargron I joined on mobile so I didn't even know I could go to the .art server r.i.p!!
@nutomic ✌ thanks Felix! I don't have any followers so I'm pretty much safe to hop over to my own screambox over in .art jkdggh
@Grimm_ no problem 🙏
@nutomic How do I move my account to mastodon.art I am but a clueless child
@Grimm_ Just create a new account there, then you can export the follows from your current account (in the settings), and import them on the new one.
@nutomic Ah, okay! Ofc now it looks like they closed signups rip....
@Grimm_ Maybe you have to wait a bit then. Or pick another instance, there are a lot of them.
@Gargron Nah, you can leave that in there. Just boost other mastodon servers lol
@Gargron great decision!
@Gargron Bless You ❤️
@Gargron I have a question about other servers. If I want to join another one, should I just use the same email as this one? And are servers linked at all or do they all stand alone in terms of accounts?
@kirbyemmitt It doesn't matter what email you use. If you create an account on a different instance, it is basically completely seperate (you can point at your new account from the old one, but that's it).
@Gargron how do you change to a new instance? I think this is the most difficult part to sort out
@Gargron Are you sure about this? I think it might be a better idea to implement a general feature encouraging users to pick less popular instances.
Is it possible to transfer an account, including followers and followees, to a new server?
When I signed up, that's what scared me away from small servers.
I figured larger, more proven servers were more likely to stick around.
If you told people they could transfer and not lose anything, I think they'd be more brave about picking smaller, more niche servers.
@Gargron I think this is a great idea.
Out of curiosity do you have a long-term plan for mastodon.social (max cap of users, ramp-down of users, etc) or do you just take things day by day?
@Gargron yulegen ?
@Gargron we trully need distribution.
@Gargron Hi could you add "italian" in language section with our instance (mastodon.bida.im) in joinmastodon.org ?
@Gargron got in on the last wave
a position of privilege and status
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
