Hm, I'd want to integrate a user count graph into joinmastodon.org somehow, but it's not as easy as it sounds. I don't think there's anywhere to get the data from programmatically. I'd have to build a stats aggregator myself...
@DarthChillash I mean there's nowhere to get the ready aggregated data from. Each instance provides number of registered users and weekly active users publicly, the task is to discover all instances and collect the data and ideally detect anomalies because malicious actors could fake their numbers and inflate the aggregate number
@Gargron the old mastodon radar did this. Still miss that site. You can spider the known instance list and and peek into the main feeds looking for new instances and grow your list with that. I think people would help with moderation to keep the data clean provided with the tools to do this.
@Gargron https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fediverse#User_statistics but fediverse.network is down ATM
@Gargron I think "search with keyword" feature has to be implemented on mastodon, right now I can only search with hashtags instead of the actual "words".
