🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a of servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🤷

Here's the link: u.osmfr.org/m/550053/


if you run a region or locale-based server, please let me know so we can add to the map at u.osmfr.org/m/550053/

@alexevon I can't get the site to load, can I pleaese confirm the URL? social.aiqwest.com/ is not working for me

@jaz that should work. The CDN will force you to an ssl connection

@jaz hi you can add tooting.ch with physical location in Lausanne Switzerland

@jaz mastodon.scot for, erm, Scotland! 🙂

@rodti already in, as well as glasgow.social. So now you've beaten Wales twice, once in the and another in the number of Mastodon instances per country 😃

@t3rr0rz0n3 just tell me the server and the locale or region it is intended to serve. and optionally if it's signed on to the Mastodon Server Covenant or not.

@jaz The node is mine, which I am admin, is called Xarxa.cloud and you can put it next to mastodont.cat (in Catalonia). It's a regional node.

@jaz Greetings from Hertfordshire


Still early days of a setup on this server so not the most exciting posts. Plus just me for now.

@bumblebee no worries mate. For the time being the map is intended to help people find servers to join "near them", so while I love that you're working on your instance, I'll keep it off the map until you're open for business and targeting the area - general instances aren't going to be on the map. Batten down for Christoph!

@jaz darmstadt.social is for, well Darmstadt in Hesse, Germany ;)

@ij @w4tsn it seems we are on track to have one server for every household in . This is a good thing™️

osna.social wurde hinzugefügt, danke 👍

@ewen merci bien, c'est fait, et d'un Gallois a un Gaulois - salut ! 👍

@papaeng89 alors c'est fait, merci. J'ai passe deux semaines a Auxerre/Tonnerre quand j'avais 13 ou 14, c'etait tres jolie! C'etait mon premiere fois en France.

@thomas Hi Thomas, the map is for open registration servers only, are you accepting new members?

@jaz oh, sorry. AS Long AS I dont know how to be compliant to gdpr and those things, I wont accept registrations.

@thomas I am not a lawyer, but article 4.18 of GDPR states you must be engaged in an "economic activity"; and the personal and household exemptions apply to undertakings with “no connection to a professional or commercial activity”. So, certainly a grey area, but if I were flying solo and not charging anyone, I would personally presume I am not subject to GDPR.

@jaz Do add us at indieweb.social based out of DC area in US.

@tchambers hi Tim, thanks for the link, I'm focussed on locality and indieweb.social seems to be topical, not locality. I read your about page etc., I don't see the DC connection, am I missing it?

@jaz Ah got it, you are correct, indieweb.social is not a "local" focused instance in our topic. Sorry for my confusion.

@tchambers no worries at all, I'm enjoying being exposed to so many servers I was unaware of!

@jaz Can you add fulda.social?
Located in Fulda/Hesse, Germany?
