Collectively-owned Fediverse instances

    I’m essentially bookmarking this publicly as it’s a useful reference for Fediverse instances (all currently running Mastodon!) which are collectively owned.

    What I’m interested in is diversifying and going beyond this very useful list. First, I’d love examples to be added which are running other Fediverse software than Mastodon. For example, I’ve got a test instance of Misskey running at

    Second, I’m interested in the governance of these instances. If you’re not involved with co-operatives or other organisations that are democratically operated, it can seem like a bit of a black box. So I think we need a collaboratively-created guide to collective decision-making processes when it comes to Fediverse instances.

    Fediverse instances with an explicit system of shared governance, usually made legally binding through an incorporated association or cooperative.

    This page will list also instances which are closed for registrations and dead instances, so that we can collectively learn from their experience.
