info for reviewers of this html page:

(1) we call this the !fediverse
(2) offered partly, e.g. for registration
(3) works over friendica
(4) every SN admin can pre-create accounts. The nickname can be changed by user itself again in options to her own choice.
Either a trusted group distributes this by a standard-check (or perhaps a script can automatically).
It could be faster than the new users waiting until SN admin checks email.
to be discussed: spammers, untrusted users ...
(5) the admin thinks about offering 2nd SN server which is more public, for now: he'd like to offer accounts for people he knows

(6) ...followed by Spanish, and then English. (7) Sweden, but tunneling through maltese IP
