Hey - I would be interested in supporting a Patreon (or similar) run by a person or group who keeps track of new fediverse instances and also any changes to the /about and /about/more endpoints of known instances and publishes a reverse chronological feed of the information on the web.

Anybody doing this? Hit me up and let me know where to support you, please!


@djsundog if no one else is, i'd definitely be interested in taking on this project

I wonder if there's a better way to discover instances than federation bots? maybe tapping in to one of the big relays or something?

@djsundog I suppose there is, could be a good way to start

@valerauko @balrogboogie also a good question - I think there are at least a few but have no specific live relays I can point to right now

@ben ooh, good point - hey @href have you considered possibly adding a reverse chronological changelog page to track instance changes to by any chance?

@djsundog @ben most definitely! I'll do it soon for most of the nodeinfo data & description/name & other changes (upgrades, …) -- a sort of timeline/changelog!
