Very interesting emerging life like system simulation out of a pretty simple equation.

Somebody made the perfect developer survey – sadly on Twitter, but the results are hilarious. https://twitter.com/tef_ebooks/status/953186333455015936
Before I go ruining my instance, is there any way to give a user their username back? I assume I can do something with the database but I'm not 100% certain.
Friend made an account, I promoted them to admin expecting to have to option to demote them if needed but I found that I didn't. So I had them delete their account then remake it. Only to find that their username was taken.
Anyone know how to fix this so they can have the same username?
(please boost 🙏)

I'm kind of nervous about this but I think it's finally ready.
What I've been working on over the past few months is, in part, my website. I've added a few pages, changed some things around, and done a lot of CSS work. It's a lot cleaner than it used to be.
In addition to that (and this was the real time-sink), I'm now #selfhosting 9 different #libre applications available for anyone to use completely free of charge. #NixNet is now a Libre Hosting provider!
