@Gargron thanks !
send some folks over to mastadon.club, we're cool folks too :)
@Gargron I like being on mastodon.social because I have been here for a while but I am still debating switching to another instance because there are so many people here. It feels weird.
@Gargron yer a trooper Eugen
@Gargron Nice :D
@Gargron Wunderbar. A bar full of wunder.
@Gargron that was the good thing to do :)
@Gargron awesome! I'm setting up my instance now and was wondering about that. How about letting admins generate invite links to send people and keeping their servers invite-only?
@Gargron Good decision.
@Gargron Yay, added value to my account.
@Gargron good move, i hope this node and many many others continue to flourish!
@Gargron Is there an easy way to find other federated nodes?
@eqdw List of other Mastodon implementations are here:
List of other fediverse / gnusocial nodes are here:
Also, heads up, a lot of people are switching to maly.io as their identity provider, because of potential discontent with mastodon.social's blocking of other instances it deems bad.
@johnhenry why maly.io. Who/what is that? And also, signups have apparently been cancelled, already.
@eqdw Haha, yeah. Basically, mastodon.social drops federation with other instances, like shitposter.club, because of perceived social justice violations. While you can export the list of people you _follow_, it's harder to export the people who follow _you_, so the more you grow a social graph here, the more you open yourself up to censorship / stifling community policies.
@eqdw You can implement the "Mastodon" UI on top of any domain you want (see instances.mastodon.xyz), so it'd be best to build your graph on something like maly.io to prevent being cut off from other networks later. I believe @puellavulnerata / @0xdeadbabe are working on an instance, so I'll probably join theirs or another ingroup members' whenever it's ready.
Definitely a huge drag on the process :(
@johnhenry I'm considering popping up my own instance tbh, but it would just be a repeat of slack so what's the point?
@Gargron That's fantastic; I just set up my instance last night and was looking for an easy way to close registrations. Thanks for all your hard work!
@nolan was it hard? how are you hosting?
@Gargron such a great decision. not for the fact to keep us small and exclusive but to promote the idea of decentralization and keeping this instance from becoming the biggest instance of all
@Gargron Now I feel like on OG, even though I joined the network only this morning. Lol
@Gargron true migration (_with_ followers) is direly needed if this thing shall fly. Small instances can be shut down anytime and people are left with nothing, as happening now with gay.crime.team
@Gargron Thanks! I'm trying to get some more nodes setup too. :smile:
@Gargron I think, moving to another instance should be a first class feature. As in take your toots, followers, mentions etc with you 🙋♂️
@Gargron realistically, when can you get on the 1 hour PTL delay?
@Ashoka I am working on this non-stop
@Gargron godspeed mate, we are all cheering for you
@Gargron do you have any documentation regarding this? I'd like to close registrations on my instance :)
@Gargron Sincerely hope the mastodon.social registration hiatus is temporary! This one still have the best and most comprehensive code of conduct of any instance I've looked at.
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!
