Hi, I am a new user. Thanks for providing this great alternative to Twitter with an open source and crowd source base
I have a few things that I like to tell about my user experience as new user.
When I want to follow someone else at another server I had to enter my username@domain. Since the domain the server is new for me I don’t remember it exactly yet and like to copy/paste the whole name @firstname.lastname@example.org . So I went to https://mastodon.technology/settings/profile to find my username@domain and from there on it is very hard to select only the username@domain part. So easier selection or even better a copy button next to the username@domain will help. Another solution can be using the URL instead of the name. In my case Jurjen de Vries (@email@example.com) - Mastodon for Tech Folks .
After following someone from another server I want to favorite and respond to his toot. I got the question again to give my username@domain with a note “Why is this step necessary? mastodon.nl might not be the server where you are registered, so we need to redirect you to your home server first. Don’t have an account? You can sign up here”. This is very annoying. I don’t want to create an account for every server I want to interact with, and also no extra steps every time. Once per domain would be okay, but not every time. Can’t this be fixed by a cookie, oauth or another related technology solution?
