NOTE: Servers are listed on an assumption of honesty. I check each server’s rules and Local feed for red flags at the time of listing, but I don’t have the resources to do a formal audit. Please let me know if a listed server has done anything problematic.

If you need help using Mastodon and the Fediverse, see my site at Fedi.Tips ⧉
