This instance is aimed at scientists, science students, science communicators, or anyone with a rational mindset wanting to interact with each other and to help share science-related topics and thinking to the wider Fediverse.

So come here to ask questions, answer questions, and to share ideas with other science-minded folk. The federated nature of the network will also help to spread your science know-how and enthusiasm with the rest of the Mastodon network!

We are only a small instance at the moment but we are stable and secure.

What is Mastodon anyway?

There’s a great guide here which is worth reading to ensure you get the most out of your time here.

Why do new accounts require approval?

In order to reduce the occurrence of spam, new accounts must be reviewed by a human and either approved or rejected.

Approval is at the discretion of the moderator and is based on whatever has been entered into the ‘Why do you want to join?’ box when you sign-up. To boost your chances of approval, you need to convince the mods you are not a spam-bot and that you have a genuine interest in joining the instance.

How long does new account approval take?

The new account review process is manual and is undertaken by an actual human.

In general, new accounts are reviewed within a few hours. However, depending on the time and season, it may take up to 24 hours.
