Question for experienced mastodon admins:
Do you have a way of exporting a list of all the instances your instance has federated with, for analysis? Just a huge plain-text file of domain names?
@thufie I only copy paste from the web interface.
Because of the many pages, I would probably use the source view in the web browser to have a quick way to access the names
@kyzh where does it show the instances you federate with in the webui?
@thufie ahhhh you want the known instance, not the blocked one.
I'm sure someone has a trick, but beyond proding the interface with the emoji I dont know of a way.
Maybe a site like fediverse.network has that kind of data
@thufie the accounts table is a list of all the accounts you've federated with and I'm sure you could write a little script to extract all that from there
@thufie if you go to moderation then to accounts then to remote, it gives you a list of every account youre federated with
@FirstProgenitor yeah so far I think exporting that and doing a bunch of regex magic on it will be the best option
@FirstProgenitor oof, can't export it. For now I'm just going to do the same thing with my follows, but I was hoping for a better dataset...
Smol server part of the pixie.town infrastructure. Registration is approval-based, and will probably only accept people I know elsewhere or with good motivation.
