@pixelfed Will Pixelfed.social accept new registrations in the future?
@CaptainStack Nope, registration is permanently closed.
Users will be able to invite people in the near future, so you might be able to get an account that way.
@dansup Why did they choose to close it? I would think an official instance from the creators of the software would help adoption. Like mastodon.social helps Mastodon as a whole federated community grow.
@CaptainStack I chose to close pixelfed.social registration to encourage the growth of other instances.
@dansup I think that makes sense, but I will say when I am in situations like this it tends to give me a lot of decision paralysis. I don't want to accidentally choose an instance that will shut down in a few years, or that takes forever to update the software, or that becomes a ghost town.
@pixelfed I first mistook this as a badge as in “Dansup is a Pixelfed sponsor”.
@heluecht Not yet, that is planned. We'll use the same format Mastodon uses for custom fields.
@pixelfed does pixelfed dark theme?
@survivor303 Yes, dark mode is a beta feature.
@pixelfed great \o/ is it too bad to ask account for .social instance? ;)
@pixelfed i know thats why i asked and it is like "official" instance so.. but ok. does pixelfed offer instagram import tool?
@survivor303 There is no official instance, Instagram Import is a feature on our roadmap!
@pixelfed ok, not like "real" official but erveyone is there ;)
@pixelfed about that import tool, please do somekind parser for that json file what comes with that exporting zip. so content gets their real date and timestamps.
@pixelfed A way to easily specify a license for the photos would also be great.
