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 I like being on mastodon.social because I have been here for a while but I am still debating switching to another instance because there are so many people here. It feels weird.

@inmysocks @Gargron what makes it feel like so many people for you and when did that happen here (as far as you can tell)?

@Gargron @inmysocks wait nevermind I just looked at the user count bot. Wow!

@inmysocks @Gargron but if you close registration on mastodon.social indefinitely, every account here gets major hipster points

@bcrypt @Gargron @inmysocks what's identi.ca again? this is a predicted and well known federated site problem

@Gargron @inmysocks @bcrypt they should just toggle on and off semirandomly as a janky load balancer :D
