I need help from the :
At the beginning of this year I discovered a mastodon account (on a different FOSS instance) called "Freed Creative", they also owned a channel with the same name and uploaded awesome tutorials.
I noticed NewPipe complaining about not being able to find the account, like 2 weeks ago. So I did a quick mastodon search but it only returned and .
Does anyone know what happened to the account?

@comcloudway @mike

Is it possible that it was on an instance that is defederated by Fosstodon? Yesterday some people commented under a post of mine that I couldn't see.

@Mehrad @mike Maybe, but then why did they delete their youtube account, all videos on tilvids and on peertube.
I'm not blaming them, but they did a really amazing job at promoting krita and foss in general.

@comcloudway @mike

Well, that make things complicated. One thing to factor in is that tilvids does not approve educational only content. This is verbatim of what they told me:

"The most important thing to remember is our focus on edutainment content; any content you upload should be educational in nature, but also entertaining."

So if the videos were not entertaining, the tilvids might have removed them?

@Mehrad @mike Whilst that would make sense, it does not really explain why the account vanished everywhere - Maybe I'll find the mastodon instance

@iooioio @freedcreative Thanks - I hadn't seens thoose accounts yet, but they appear to be inactive. But I'll check their blog on the website

@comcloudway @freedcreative Yeah, I also just noticed they have been abandoned. Maybe the ones you mentioned were just the next in line and new accounts will pop up again eventually.

I also enjoyed following their work. Thanks for digging it up in the wayback machine.

@iooioio @comcloudway Hi, I didn't even realise I still had this account but got emails about this thread.

I did bail on all social media, but this was such a nice thread I thought I ought to give an explanation.

I have a serious ongoing health issue and need to dedicate all my time to it. I found that as long as I have videos or threads anywhere my discipline is insufficient to keep my focus on point, and I hit major overload.

This thread was really nice though, thank you.

@freedcreative @iooioio I'm sorry to hear that you are not doing well, and whilst I think that it is sad that you deleted all your old videos, I understand why you quit social media and deleted them.
Anyway, just wanted to thank you for taking the time and reaching out and letting us know.

I'm not in your situation, but I hope you'll get through this hard time.

(Sorry didn't know if I should answer, let me know if I should delete this)


What @comcloudway said. Thank you for all the material you shared. Sending positive thoughts. I hope you get through whatever it is you're dealing with and come out the other end stronger than before.
