Mastodon's monthly active user numbers have risen by 84,579 since the Twitter buyout story broke on Monday (and I do mean across the Mastodon network, not this server)

@Gargron why do I keep getting this on "Local" and "Federated" view on my Tusky app?

@nonordinarytiles These timelines require some of the heaviest database queries to display, so I have disabled them here to make everything else work faster.

@Gargron Got it. But how am I supposed to find new accounts and follow new people? I use these views mainly to find new content.

@nonordinarytiles Check out the explore tab! I don't know if Tusky has added it yet, but we have an official Android app that does have it. Or the web app.


@Gargron @nonordinarytiles I hope this is temporarely, as new users are going to have a harder time finding accounts to follow without even federated timeline

@Mek101 @Gargron @nonordinarytiles maybe should stop accepting new users at all to cope with the load a bit better and to distribute the wave more evenly. Seems like many people just go for because they can not really differenciate that it's only one of alle the instances and that they could select more or less arbitrary between them because of federation...

@jr AFAIK stopped accepting new users some time ago, directing them to 👀 and now if you try to enter from a browser, it redirects you to

@nahuel yeah just looked it up, if you try to sign up it directs you to joinmastodon, thanks @Gargron
