@ercanbrack Indeed, the total number of users is an interesting and important number, but - as you describe it - doesn't show the actual live numbers. That's why the #Mastodon monthly active (#MAU) or 6-months active users are so important:
* Users with multiple accounts
* Bot accounts
* The-federation's list is opt-in. It does not list all instances.
* Not all instances report active users due to privacy.
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
