So uh, decided that after March, since niu.moe will close, I will put the instance in "isolation mode".
You will no longer be able to interact with people outside of niu, neither they will.
I also will slowly purge out every remote content that is stored on niu.
It should allow me to :
- be lazy and don't have too much work to do
- shrink down niu to an acceptable size, making way it cheaper to host
- keeping it up longer so ppl that haven't moved yet can still coordinate themselves by coming back from time to time
- still be able to build archives of your accounts if you wish
I still want everyone to find a new home, so I might come up with evils ideas to make life less funny in niu.moe to push you too move in another place but with love
niu.moe future, important²
...I would like to add to this that in "isolation mode" you will no longer be able to migrate your account and that all your remote followers and follows will be removed.
Doesn't think it's time added up for this kind of task, if you still want to profit from Mastodon's "migrate" feature (aka allowing-you-to-move-followers-and-stuff) you will need to do it before March.
If you don't plan to use it, or to use niu as a reference for who you followed, then it's fine.
So uh, do backups of your follows now if you don't want to have a downsized version of them in march 👀
@Miaourt no remote interaction? I should lock my account to migrated mode before then
@ilovecomputers wonder if I can trick the stuff and add to everyone's bio some info about what's going on
@Miaourt After the closing will you leave a mew mew in my memory
re: niu.moe future, important²
@Miaourt oh heck march is just a month from now 😰
are you going to federated-delete all the niu accounts or will they stay as ghosts on other instances forever?
