Given that this (mastodon.social) is most shared instance, to preserve the ideals of decentralization we have closed sign ups in favour of spreading new users through the various alternative instances

— you get access to the same network wherever you sign up —

You can find a lot of these instances here:
instances.mastodon.xyz/

And share this with your friends: joinmastodon.org/

@b_cavello They've been open for quite a while again. As we've been adjusting things, and increasing performance.

@maloki Interesting! I thought the goal was to cap off instances somewhat to increase federation, but I suppose not!

@b_cavello Not necessarily, Mastodon.social is a good gateway, because it's the link that gets spread.
Until everything with joinmastodon is ready, at least.

@Support Hi! :) I've noticed that most of the instances that I see on instances.mastodon.xyz have "About this instance" text written in a human language that I don't know how to read. I'm wondering if it might be possible to add support for filtering based on the language(s) that the "About this instance" text is written in?

@schala09 @Support There is a new version of instances going up tomorrow, with an instance picker, I am unsure if that version will have a language filter, but you can ask @TheKinrar about it. :)

@moonman @Mastodon I wonder how I can see this if you are blocked 🤔
