@Gargron Idea: joinmastodon.org automatically and seamlessly forwards the registration link to a curated set of general interest instances. Not perfect, but better than everyone piling on one. And the list can grow in time.

What do you think?

@aral This is on my 2.8 roadmap wishlist. All the building blocks are there, it just needs to be assembled.

@Gargron @aral you could even use the country of the IP ;)address of the visitor (or the preferred language of the browser) to choose instance in one's country or language by default ;)

Language of browser would be better than IP. Some of us use VPNs
