On September 20 we will shut down koyu.space for a big #fridays4future event as a form of protest. In the meantime we will redirect to a site listed with a location near you in Germany where you can become active yourself and protest along. koyu.space runs on 100% green energy already and we want to continuously let it be that way.
We published our design sheet so if you want to design something for koyu.space, here's the recipe: https://web.koyu.space/uploads/designsheet.pdf 🎨
Since koyu.space is a relatively small instance there is not a big attack surface than on mastodon.social as this was actually happening. Hackers used breached password databases to get into some older inactive mastodon.social accounts. But still, do yourself a favour and care about your account security as we are limited in helping you.
That's actually all I wanted to say.
koyu.space recommends you using strong passwords and two factor authentication which can be enabled in Preferences > Account > Two-factor Auth. If you use the same passwords across different websites you are at higher risk getting your account hacked from a data breach. Of course we will disable your login if we detect that your account might have been hacked and send you an e-mail on how to get your account back.

Get $50 for a month on DigitalOcean and once you spent $25 we will get $25. Sounds like a deal? Cool!
Planned maintenance at 20:00 CEST for biggy/egg. The following services will be affected:
- koyu.space Matrix
- koyu's personal website
- Google Search Autocomplete Proxy
This means some resources like images might not load on https://koyu.space. Please be patient. The process might take up to 15 minutes.

"Amazon’s home security company Ring quietly removed the term 'surveillance' from a statement law enforcement officials provided to local news outlets, according to public records obtained by Gizmodo."
Let's call it what it is: surveillance.
It has been a recent trend to block Fedilab on instances. I think everybody should have the right to choose the client they want to have even if they might not agree with the viewpoints of the developers. Sure is allowing bad instances a bad thing (and we regularly block them), but taking user freedom away is also a bad thing. Choose a client you feel comfortable with. I won't care.
We now have an online shop. Selling physical goods over Patreon was a bad idea.
