We've decided to close chaos.social signups right now instead of in the evening as we had planned originally. All users can create invites at https://chaos.social/invites.
Our reasons: We discovered that we were prominently listed on joinmastodon.org despite our opt-out, and the resulting amount of signups on what we see as a community instance was both unintended and unceasing. Communities, in our experience, are not limited in size, but in sustainable speed of growth. #mastoadmin #chaosadmin
@maloki @rixx @leah I was responsible for this issue. It's now fixed. I forgot to tell Gargron to use a parameter to exclude such instances in the requests from joinmastodon.org.
Now it's fixed and deployed, chaos.social may reopen registrations and won't appear on joinmastodon.org anymore.
I'm really sorry for that.
chaos.social - because anarchy is much more fun with friends.
chaos.social is a small Mastodon instance for and by the Chaos community surrounding the Chaos Computer Club. We provide a small community space - Be excellent to each other, and have a look at what that means around here.
Follow @ordnung for low-traffic instance-related updates.
The primary instance languages are German and English.
