#Mastodon update: Admins can now easily close registrations with a custom message. In other news, I have closed registrations to mastodon.social for now ensure a quality of service for all existing ones, and to promote other federated nodes.
@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.
