@Gargron @unagi is there a specific request I can look for in my logs to help troubleshoot what may be happening when I enter the full server name?

@Gargron @unagi is there a setting that controls whether is instance is returned via the joinmastodon API? I couldn’t find the source code for that anywhere.

Thank you, @amosbatto for believing in our mission 😎
