To all mastodon.social and .online users, please migrate to smaller instances as soon as possible because many instances are planning to defederate both mastosoc and mastoonline. mk.absturztau.be may defederate mastodon.social at anytime.

@ahriboy Might potentially defederate from mastodonsocial too, mainly to decrease traffic. Please be warned that you should move instances or services if you want to still follow or interact with me. I may block mastodonsocial without warning

@asahi95 @ahriboy So how would that work? If you de-federate, does that block people on that instance from seeing you at all? Could we still actively look you up? Or does it just stop your server from indexing and displaying toots from that server?

@ahriboy Why are they de-federating? The amount of traffic?

@gerowen @ahriboy Not entirely sure, it could do the latter but people from that instance won't show up on my timeline nor I'll be able to search them up. It could also remove followers from that instance, not entirely sure if you can still look me up, yes it'll stop indexing and displaying posts from that instance

If you still want to follow me, I recommend an different instance such as fosstodon.org or even move to Calckey

@asahi95 @ahriboy I may check one of those out. I've kinda stayed here since it's ran by the devs and gets updates fast, plus it's not likely to get turned off just because one guy gets tired of messing with it. My wife made an account on a smaller instance that the app recommended and its feed is several hours behind everybody else. My experience here has been pretty positive so overall.

@gerowen @ahriboy Fosstodon is very much nearly up to date with mastodonsocial, so that wouldn't be a major concern, plus the admins there are very active and aren't gonna give up and shut down anytime soon
