If you’re new here, here are some tips for #gettingstarted in the fediverse! Show more

* post an #introduction toot with lots of hashtags

Like any other network, it takes a while to build up a feed, but there are plenty of interesting folks here! Welcome to the fediverse, and have fun :)
We've blocked some fediverse instances that don't fit with the sort of positive space we want to create. We're using the @blockchain from https://github.com/dzuk-mutant/blockchain/blob/master/list/list.md.
Only domains with illegal content are outright blocked. Others are silenced from the federated feeds, but if you want to follow anyone on them, you can; knock yourself out.
If you have any problems, or can't access accounts you really want to, let us know!
Registrations are currently closed on mastodon.me.uk while we work out how to stop a recent wave of spam accounts signing up. You can still send invitations though!
We're now running Mastodon v2.4.0, with many improvements including:
* Offline mode!
* Better direct messaging!
* Profile metadata!
* Custom emoji and bot badges for profiles!
* More privacy controls!
