@rugk I've prepared the ground for it with the sign up API, but it would take a lot of manual curation to make that a not-awful experience, i.e. you can't just rely on the full server list
@Gargron yes, i agree, also for privacy reasons of course, if you send mail and password to a randomly choosen server – you have to know that server is reliable. 😃
@rugk @Gargron I think this would be awful for many reasons: the URL is part of my identity I want do know and chose it. I have no idea on which server I end up. Can I trust the admin? Does they respect my privacy? Can they maintain a secure and stable service? Where are the data located? Will the server still exists in a few months?... A things I want to know and chose - 1/2
@rugk @Gargron I know I repeat myself, but for me the number one feature to foster decentralization is to support account migration with all data, including my bidirectional contacts. Only if I can freely switch between servers without losing my history and even more important my social network I will feel comfortable trying out small instances, run my own instance, etc. - 2/2
