One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

Short reminder to fill up your insect watering place. It's spring and many regions currently lack rainfall.
Our six legged friends are thirsty, too.

@nextcloud Hey guys, wouldn’t it be a good time to relaunch your Social addon?

Heutige Erkenntnis: Unternehmen sind auf Plattformen, weil die User da sind, nicht andersrum.

Thank you for participating in the Mastodon Beta (codename "Twitter").

Over the past 10 years, we've collected valuable data that we can now use to improve the experience of the main platform and it's users. Without your hard work and dedicated shitposting, none of this would be possible. We're glad that you've decided to join us here on the final iteration, and hope you enjoy the new and refined experience!

Dear new users:

It's alright to take your time and get up to speed on here. You don't have to hit the ground running. You might have picked up the habit of interacting with social media as it it were naturally a competitive performance--we all did--but the best thing about Mastodon and the fediverse beyond it is that it's not like that. Take some time to decompress.

It took me about six months to fully drop the armor that I'd been wearing from being on other sites. That was three years ago. This place changes lives.

Also, it's okay to be picky. Sign up at a new instance, if the first one you pick isn't the best fit possible. You'll find your home, and folks here understand it takes trial and error.

Above all, take a deep breath. What feels weird now will make sense pretty quickly.

Glad to have you.

Ok, ok - Fediverse, wir brauchen euch: Aktuell gibt es eine Menge Leute, die sich Mastodon als Alternative zu Twitter ansehen.

Wir würden hier gerne mal Informationen sammeln, um diesen Menschen den Einstieg zu erleichtern: Tutorials, Tipps und Tricks, Übersichten über Instanzen, Empfehlung für Clients für verschiedene Betriebssysteme und Geräte - oder was euch sonst noch so einfällt.

Die besten Beiträge stellen wir dann auf unserer Homepage zusammen. / ÖA

"Mastodon ist auch nicht besser, weil da muss ich ja X Systemadmins vertrauen"

Leute, der ganze Punkt in diesem Internet ist eigentlich im Wesentlichen an vielen Stellen ein Stückweit Vertrauen.

We're seeing a pretty huge influx of new users right now. In 'normal times' we get maaaaybe 10 new users a day. We've had 300 in the past four hours.

If you'd like to help with server costs, we take donations at Patreon and Liberapay:

Anything at all is massively welcome - this is an entirely community-funded instance run by myself and a few mods in our spare time. <3

Hi! is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to instead of directly to People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!


Morgen ist #CarFreeDay. Mehr Platz für Gehen und #Radfahren verbessert nicht nur die #Klimabilanz, sondern erhöht auch die Kapazität von Fahrbahnen. Urbane Mobilität muss #klimaverträglich und platzsparend sein.


Wir sind hier, wir sind laut, weil Axel uns die Freiheit klaut.

Mastodon ist ein soziales Netzwerk. Es basiert auf offenen Web-Protokollen und freier, quelloffener Software. Es ist dezentral (so wie E-Mail!).
