Time to announce this plan: I am working on a redesign of the server picker. I am also planning to switch out the data source from to my own API. The main reason for this is the addition of a new guarantee that I would be able to give when linking to servers from That those servers would meet certain standards and enforce some basic rules of conduct.

If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.

1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).

2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.

3. Click follow!

This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!

You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.
