Like A Phoenix
We are live [again]! Like a Phoenix, it’s time to rise from the ashes.
We failed in our project’s original goals 😿 It’s time to dial back the ambition and try this again.
We owe our sincerest apologies to ALL users of the compassion.online Mastodon instance. It was not our intent to shut down, but the cost had grown out of our budget due to some lofty ambitions.
Our heart breaks that we ultimately failed in or original launch and goals.
Rising from the ashes
Today we launch a basic website and blog. The website will be geared towards helping people build / manage Mastodon instances. We also plan to post materials that are non-mastodon specific to help with building any online community.
We will not be launching a Mastodon instance at this time. It’s an option for the future but for now we are focused on more attainable and tenable goals.
For now we want to focus on helping admins build quality #under1000 instances.
With the relaunch of the website we’ve re-instated ‘The List’. A list of good, bad and ugly instances. We’re launching this to help people find safe spaces, avoid toxic behavior and avoid potentially illegal behavior.
The list is hosted at https://compassion.online/the_list
We’ve also included a form at the top of the page that will let you submit new instances for inclusion/review.
Since ‘The List’ was last available, we added preteengirls.biz. It’s what it sounds like and we recommend a full Suspend + Remote Media Block.
You don’t want to visit that site, we promise.
