Mastodon - Who blocks whom
cross-posted from: https://fapsi.be/post/161886 A few days ago, a page was published in the Fediverse where you could check which Mastodon instance is blocking whom in the Fediverse. This was made possible by a programmer who used the new Mastodon API introduced in 4.0 and automatically read out the blacklists of the instances. The information about who blocks who is in many ways more than just interesting for those who want to choose an instance. As it was already written in a German thread about the topic, it would be helpful to know whether you reach your target group at all, if you register on an instance.

When I search for a hashtag am I searching my instance or all federated instances?
I can see people from different instances so I guess I'm seeing all federated instances? But I only see 13 posts for the #piracy hashtag. So maybe my instance is not well connected?

A document with ideas and links for improving Mastodon ecosystem
Here is a copy of what was in the Etherpad (updated 2022-11-05): **Easy, anyone can do it:** * Help improve Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_%28software%29 **Somewhat advanced - Provide suggestions and help improve relevant software:** * https://github.com/tuskyapp/Tusky * https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore * https://github.com/ihabunek/toot * https://fedilab.app/ figure out how to efficiently encourage people to choose or move to the instance that is most fitting for them there should be more / better tools to help people easily find the instance that fits their interests the most Interface for finding server should let user mark various interests and return sorted list of most fitting servers process of migrating to a different instance should be made easier **Cross-post your Mastodon posts to Twitter:** * https://crossposter.masto.donte.com.br/ * https://github.com/renatolond/mastodon-twitter-poster * https://moa.party/ * https://gitlab.com/fedstoa/moa find ways to Twitter replies to appear in Mastodon, resulting in a fully bridged thread find ways to import some or all existing data from existing Twitter profile figure out how to efficiently encourage people to choose or move to the instance that is most fitting for them * there should be more / better tools to help people easily find the instance that fits their interests the most * process of migrating to a different instance should be made easier **More technical stuff:** * Look through open issues, see if there is anything you can help with. Also help clean up by going through old issues and suggesting outdated or resolved ones for closure. https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon * Help write documentation https://github.com/mastodon/documentation * host your own instance getting people to use it will help distribute the burden that is currently on mastodon.social * https://the-federation.info/mastodon takes long time to load. Probably transfers whole list before parsing it or something. Find ways to split the process and make information display faster


Favorites? hmm

Why do I need an account to see mastodon?
I've tried to access mastodon.social but it asks me to sign up. Why can't I just take a look without signing up?

Is the new official Mastodon client worth it?
I'm still using Tusky on Android because it's on F-Droid. As far as I can see, the new official client is not there. Is it worth installing it or not worth the effort since it's not on F-Droid and I can't one-click install it? What do you recommend?


Command line tool to move Mastodon accounts?
I was wondering whether there is a command line tool to move Mastodon accounts between instances. Actually, I want to test moving an account from a Mastodon instance to a Pleroma instance. [This should already work](https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/merge_requests/2773) but it is not implemented in the Pleroma frontend yet.
