So, a simple few lines to make life easier both to us and the users who want a nextcloud account.
On a sidenote, people who log in with github and such make life difficult for me to verify… should we maybe turn the feature off?
Nextcloud is an open source file sync and share software, but by using plugins it goes beyond that: you can do polls, share notes, sync your browser bookmarks across different devices, use it as mail client and more.
As it is quite resource hungry, and it is offered as a complementary service to those who are active in qoto.org, you must be an active user on the mastodon qoto instance to register.
How to register
If you are a qoto.org regular user and would like to also use nextcloud, that’s great. Create an account on cloud.qoto.org using the same username you have in your qoto.org mastodon instance and expect a DM from a mod in a matter of days to activate your account.
If for some reason you wish to use a different username, that’s fine: create the account on the cloud and DM mods to tell them that you created that account.
We also offer login via github and google. Your account will be disabled at the signup though, and you’ll see an “Error: account disabled”. Reach out to a mod from qoto.org to enable it
What do we mean by active
As a rule of thumb, more than 50 posts and over 1 month old account should do
