On September 20 we will shut down for a big 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. 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, here's the recipe: 🎨

Since is a relatively small instance there is not a big attack surface than on as this was actually happening. Hackers used breached password databases to get into some older inactive 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.

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.

Good call @TheAdmin Good job taking care of your people here. This user just posted this to Gab. Now he is on the instance ... So I guess, it's your turn....

We blocked a service called Fedichive on software- and network level and recommend other instances to do the same. Protecting user privacy is our primary goal.

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.
