How does https://fediverse.observer rate pods?
Poduptime PHP script checks servers every day for:
- Is server online
- Is server connection SSL
- uptime %
- server stats if the server owner has enabled
- Language Detection from the main page text
- Location based on the IP address
- Code version compared to the available repo version
A server can score from 0 to 100 in one number increments each day, if a pod has a perfect "100" score and is down for one check its moved down a point to "99" and so on.
