@pixelfed I completely understand doing this, however I feel like the various federated services still could go a lot father with helping people to find the new instance that suits them best. Still a lot of learning to do here, but I'd bet we can improve on having just a list of random instance addresses with a couple of statistics. Maybe you have something that looks at your profile tags and finds the instance with a high number of posts with those... Or find where your contacts are...
Finally, although this one is more a @pixelfed (the software) issue:
So, if the #pixelfed *user* is in the EU/EEA, they need to be 16 or older.
Then again, #IANAL
