I tried to sign up for mastodon, through the mercury app, it took me to a website I put in the required information, but it keeps wanting me to match the requested form and I’m not sure what I am supposed to do I tried multiple things, my wife even tried to help me.

The main instance may be closed to new members. Below are 2 links. It would be best to visit the below on a computer, not a mobile device.

Join Mastodon instances

Or you could try the instance I'm in now. That link is below. Think of Mastodon like email. You join an instance, not one central social network. Pick an instance you like. Anyone can talk to each other across instances.

Again, do all of this on the computer, not a mobile device.
