Instances

This is our search engine for Mastodon instances. It works this way: data of already indexed instances gets updated every night, and a shuffling occurs for the “random ordering”; also, once a week, during the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, new instances get searched for and added to the database.

Advanced search criteria are customizable, but by default they reflect our fondness for a decentralized and egalitarian Fediverse; with our blacklist we try to not give visibility to instances accepting fascist, racist, sexist, ableist, sovereignist contents.

We currently count 3.066 Mastodon instances, with 2.580.593 users (249.068 active during last month) and 380.409.054 published statuses.

We are a tiny organization educating and defending for indigenous voices, arts, lands, waters, and peoples affected by colonialism and surveillance capitalism. The destruction of Turtle Island and increase of #MMIW during the rise of fascistbook  and twoetter empires is unacceptable; indigenous peoples of Turtle Island deserve better -- to NOT BE ERASED, coerced, and censored. If you seek serenity and respite from the divisive colonist networks pumping malicious overinflated megacaps, let us know you are seeking invite, or find us from another mastodon instance.

We are a tiny organization educating and defending for indigenous voices, arts, lands, waters, and peoples affected by colonialism and surveillance capitalism. The destruction of Turtle Island and increase of #MMIW during the rise of fascistbook  and twoetter empires is unacceptable; indigenous peoples of Turtle Island deserve better. We will not let them be erased, coerced, or censored. Turtle Islanders deserve better: please read and share our free eZine, or request an invite for serenity and respite from colonizer social media. Beware the colonial savior complex with fistfuls of cash. Media and inquiries: Ecosteaders do not work in RCT*, nor are we available to consult with employees, shareholders, or volunteers promoting Facebook, Twitter, PBS, and other colonist-controlled networks. We do not exist to show ads, or to further English or other European languages or accounting methods regarding the history of settlements on our continent, or regarding the history of our DNA. Indigenous language keepers from across the globe are welcome to share with our network. Our public accounting does not support anything perpetuating colonial cash dollars or parts of dollars. We do not exist and do our work to be slaves to advertisements or the hustle-beg; and all of our public server code is built upon open-source and variant open-source protocols.

Due to a huge number of fake and spammy registrations, queer.party now requires a CAPTCHA in order to register. I sincerely apologise, as this does present something of an accessibility issue. If you have trouble registering, please contact me via the email address listed at /about/more and I will provide you with an invite link which allows you to bypass the CAPTCHA. Registrations are, however, now open without approval being needed.
Note for folks coming from Tumblr and Twitter; NSFW content is allowed here, but you must tag your posts as NSFW, and provide a clear content warning for them! NSFW profile pictures or banners, or explicit usernames/display names are not allowed. Please keep it friendly!
Tips are appreciated! You can throw spare change my way by visiting my tip-jar!

To support this server and the OMN project https://opencollective.com/open-media-network
Long description

Founded on #4opens, motivated by the #PGA hallmarks and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its an unfettered space for Activists and groups to communicate via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

https://campaign.openworlds.info
https://activism.openworlds.info

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.

How are OMN projects run?
