The makers of @pixelfed, the Fediverse photo sharing platform, have just created a slick new guide to the Fediverse at:

It's got a list of Fedi projects, a list of mobile apps for Fedi platforms and an opt-in directory of people to follow.

The directory is particularly interesting as it works very differently to FediFollows or Trunk. You add hashtags to your profile plus a special extra hashtag , then submit your profile to the site, and it will become searchable for the tags in your profile.

(And, yes, Mastodon is part of the Fediverse, see here for details:

@pixelfed are you accepting contributions to the guide? (text, rather than code)

@feditips @pixelfed It'd be nice if the projects listed had an "example" page to look at. Even Mastodon's instances won't let you check things out at times.

@feditips @pixelfed @humanetech the menu keeps sticking on the page after click on item. Maybe check your CSS config file.

@humanetech @tobi @feditips This is now fixed! You may have to refresh the page for the changes to take effect

@tobi @pixelfed @feditips

Weird. Doesn't work for me, both in Firefox (where I cleared cache) and Chrome (where I just opened it for the first time). In Chrome there's also a double scrollbar in the dropdown menu.

Note, that I test on my desktop PC, Ubuntu.

@feditips @pixelfed I love the directory! Might be nice to have a simple counter there saying "Indexing XXX accounts /people".

Btw, remove one of CCC: " Our process to submit your acccount is simple! "

That worked but it found some hashtags that definitely aren't in my profile though (just " #39 ") repeated several times.

@gme @feditips This is an encoding bug, it will be fixed shortly!

@feditips @pixelfed Good project! πŸ™‚

When I click on the "Watch an introduction video", the button moves a bit to signal that it has been clicked, but no video is being played. Firefox Browser on Linux Mint.

@feditips @pixelfed hey @Jon Would you be interested in a halibut pixelfed instance? @feditips hey Pixel I have been trying to submit my profile for inclusion in the directories, and I keep getting a server error. Could you add my profile manually? Is there a better way to get in touch with you? I have included the necessary hashtags
