Hi Fediverse ๐Ÿ‘‹

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon ๐Ÿค”

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks ๐Ÿ™‚


Maybe it would be a good idea to open source the site content, and get a few maintainers.

Encourage people to submit changes themselves, which could be approved by a couple of maintainers.

@tobias @swisode

@danjones Exactly! That's also my goal for this ๐Ÿ˜ I'm currently preparing everything.

Btw: The current codebase is already open-source:

But as it is quite a mess, I'm setting up a project from scratch currently:

Call for feedback and maintainers / helpers will follow soon ๐Ÿ™‚


@switchingsoftware @danjones
thats awesome. I may put forth my time in helping if you do a call. though I only know english so wouldnt be any use for the other instance.
