Proud of how the server architecture of mastodon.social and the code of Mastodon is keeping up with the load, but wishing for this to transform into new Mastodon servers springing up.

If you were considering starting a Mastodon server, right now would be a pretty good time. Anyone can do it from source, see docs:

docs.joinmastodon.org/

There are also hosting providers (not affiliated with me) which are super easy to work with without technical knowledge, like masto.host and hostdon.jp

@Gargron if I were to run my own instance, is it possible to disable federation to not show stuff from other servers? It's for a family group.

@vaasu Actually yes, it is possible. You'll need WHITELIST_MODE=true in the environment file.
