We are Live with our first iteration of joinmastodon.org which is going to serve as the Mastodon landing page for new users.

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.

Feedback thread

Speaking of feedback, we have set up a channel for all of it at 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:

Any etc can be directed to this website.


Instance admins have their own discussion board, which we are hoping to expand. discourse.joinmastodon.org/c/i

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.


@Mastodon Don't you see that 500 characters limit in is ridiculous?!
You had to split one short announcement into three parts.

@Mastodon @AndStatus I could have announced it in one, but I chose to write more because I wanted to.

It's a micro-blog service, not a blog platform. This is the kind of case where forking is appropriate, if you want major changes you'd fork.

@maloki It's interesting that a couple of years ago we discussed a generic term for our networks (including and ), and that time I came to conclusion that "Social network" is far better term than "Microblogging". Interesting discussion: loadaverage.org/conversation/6
Tip: application can store messages for years, this is why I easily found that conversation ;-)

And here is how that old discussion on term looks like now in
(I like the dark theme although light theme is a default one now...)
