This version also adds the filtering for gab. This basically means that should gab ever launch a Mastodon instance on one of their domains (which I'm not fully convinced they'll ever manage to), it will not be possible to add it to Toot!, or log in to it.

Everybody:

Here is this - i compiled this from a list that various #FediAdmins had been sharing.

It is as complete a list as I can compile of the confirmed, affiliated, and possible #Gab instances, includes notes, and everything you can do in Google Sheets, but it is not that. It is CryptPad Sheets.

You will need to login to Cryptpad to view, and later I can send edit links to trusted allies. I included a screen cap for those not wanting to login, even to a system as secure as Cryptpad.

Also: this is very much a first draft, and is very directly focused on Gab, and Gab organized instances. A start. See what you think. Open to improvements.

Another more secure link to allow for group edits to come.
