There's Life Announcement and Request (long)
Hello, world! Or, more specifically, the #TheresLife community.
I hope you all are doing well and are having incredibly enjoyable days.
The announcement: I'm going to be stepping down as administrator of There's Life. I will be increasingly busy with work, school, and family in the following months and I was wisely advised to pass my role to someone else.
I'm not going to write some farewell address, since I'm not leaving just yet. Instead, I am currently looking for another capable administrator who would be interested in taking my place.
This would involve:
Administrating the server (updates, general sysadmin stuff)
Administrating the website (managing federation, descriptions, helping people with their accounts, etc.)
Guiding the direction of There's Life
Along with any other miscellaneous tasks these require.
There are many people who can manage a server, but fewer are likely to be willing to handle all of these.
All other projects related to There's Life, including the Plume instance, Funkwhale instance, and all future plans, will be continued or ended according to the discretion of the new administrator.
Yes, I'm looking for another "BDFL". Unless the community is coordinated enough to manage everything by itself, this is the primary option available.
The whole transition will take place over a certain amount of time and will involve lots of communication (text messaging, video calls) to ensure that the new administrator will be faithful and trustworthy.
Has some experience with system administration (it need not be professional)
Is a follower of Jesus (this is a Christian community)

Feel free to ask any questions you may have about this.
More information about this will be posted in the coming weeks and keep the process transparent to the community.
Check out my super hip, ultra light simple display manager :P
I wrote it because both lightdm and gdm are tilting when they try to figure out my display resolution and it was driving me mad. Simplicity has won the day.

Please boost if you like #haskell, niche programming languages, retro computing, or smallnet, please. I'm looking for online nerd friends.
Regarding the freenode controversy, I had thought the fault was mostly on one side.
But after seeing this post by prawnsalad, I'm not too sure...
May be the 'echo chambers' played a role?
