The power of Mastodon, its federated architecture, is also the most confusing aspect for newcomers: “Where do I start?” To help solve this problem, we are building, our server. Mammoth will continue to fully and enthusiastically support all Mastodon servers (minus the icky ones), and you’ll continue to be able to use it to connect with your favorite server. But for new users, we are integrating an easy use Create An Account feature that is connected to We have the 0.1 build of our server ready. Today we’ll be signing up the first 100 users on our server. Head on over to if you enjoy living on the bleeding edge, warts and all!
