It is still a Work In Progress, but we are now sufficiently far along to be able to share it with you.
We want to make it easier for new users to join up.
Speaking of feedback, we have set up a channel for all of it at https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/ which you are all welcome to, to join the discussion.
Step one is figuring out how we want to use it. You can start by joining the discussion here:
Instance admins have their own discussion board, which we are hoping to expand. https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/c/instance-admin
Hopefully we can move away from Discord in this regard. Just drop in and leave us feedback on how you’d like to use it.
@maloki It's interesting that a couple of years ago we discussed a generic term for our networks (including #GNUSocial and #PumpIo), and that time I came to conclusion that "Social network" is far better term than "Microblogging". Interesting discussion: https://loadaverage.org/conversation/6782883#notice-6796031
Tip: #AndStatus application can store messages for years, this is why I easily found that conversation ;-)
@Mastodon i dont understand why M'don is using a light on dark theme while all other big socnets use dark on light. is this to make a point or a difference?
i mean, the other big socnets have surely researched their color themes for years to gain the best user acceptance. why does M'don diverge in this aspect?
dark on light looks friendlier, more open, more understandable and even simpler for starters.
imo, light on dark is a big mistake regarding new user acceptance.
