Hello, Ben Roberts from the Social Web Working Group and Social Web Incubator Community Group and the W3C (that second one is open to the public if you are interested in joining). I was looking for some feedback.

In yesterday's Social Web Incubator Community Group telcon, I brought up the issue of WebFinger. The current implementations have had some differences in how they are implemented. Also there are several limitations to it. Its important to invest....


@dissolve Actually, the path to webfinger has been standartized in the final spec. It's always /.well-known/webfinger. Subdirectories don't matter as long as that path is at the root domain. As for the acct format itself, Mastodon expects username@domain, the domain cannot contain paths (you can't have two different webfingers under same domain)
