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 #Fedi22, 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:

#FediverseInfo #Fediverse #FediTips #MastoTips
I couldn't resist :blobcatgiggle:

A wonderful project Daniel, congratz! :clapping: :fediverse:
are you accepting contributions to the guide? (text, rather than code)
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.
@humanetech the menu keeps sticking on the page after click on item. Maybe check your CSS config file.

Oops! Will work on a fix!
This is now fixed! You may have to refresh the page for the changes to take effect
It works ✅
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.

Also on Firefox Android it doesn't work.
Sorry about that, will investigate!
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! "
We added this, thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks! I've added myself to the directory!
Good project! 🙂

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.
hey @Jon Would you be interested in a halibut pixelfed instance?
@Jon @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
