@thunderbird hmm what's the difference between mastodon.social and mastodon.online?

@[email protected] @[email protected] Different instances, but all connected together to form the same fediverse. Just like you're on animesexual.community, it doesn't matter what server you're on, you get access to the same place.

@dwarf @thunderbird That I know. mastodon.online's description is "A newer server operated by the Mastodon gGmbH non-profit"; I wonder what's the reason for a "newer" one and which one should people choose?

@[email protected] @[email protected] I think at some point it's getting a bit troublesome or expensive to have 100k+ users on one instance, I'm guessing load balancing?

@lamp social is overcrowded, so gargron started online as his second instance. I think he closed registration on social for a while, but later opened it again.

There is no difference in policy.
