Minor update to joinmastodon.org - list will now only display instances upgraded to 2.0 and later, which is the quality you've come to expect.

@Gargron I do not think that people expect much when joining

OStatus isn't THAT bad

@Technowix @Pasty Yeah that's kind of irrelevant lol

@Gargron @Technowix I HAVE BEEN CORRECTED AND I APOLOGIZE FOR MY LACK OF KNOWLEDGE
2.0.0 really is the quality anyone would come to expect
anyways im outta here

@Gargron Eugen, how do you respond to folks who worry about "name squatting" on other instances?

@jpacker they don't worry about namesquatting e-mail addresses do they?

@Gargron Perhaps, but Mastodon, for all the distributed nature of the beast, is still seen as monolithic - and the hiding of instance tags in displayed names could easily lead to confusion that email wouldn't have, I think.

@Gargron I've found that the list page bogs down and crashes on me often. Has anyone else reported this?

@Gargron Hi there. Quick question - is there anyway to join different instances and have them connected within an interface - an app or whatever - or would they simply be in different tabs?

@Gargron My instance is tagged as unstable. Can I get some information of how this is considered?

@thomas but yours is marked as intermittent, not unstable (yellow, not red). to be green you need at least 98% uptime

@Gargron Ok, I had a couple of minutes downtime at the start, so I think it will get green soon...
