Time to ditch Instagram and join pixelfed!

@fribbledom this is a neat looking link, but suffers from the same issue as Mastodon. The average user will see ‘Registration is Closed’. And they’re done. Back to Instagram they’ll go. #libre and #federated i awesome, but the barrier to use it in the manner it is today is too high for the average person.
@cyberpresidentvanellope @fribbledom oh no, I agree totally, federated is better overall for the libre part if nothing else, it’s simply that a new user who is immediately met with a message saying registrations are closed, is a lost potential user in most cases.
I would just like to see an easier way to pick a server that is accepting registrations without having to go to another page, then copy, navigate back, and try to sign up again.
Just another Pachyderm trying to fly like a bird.
