You guys have no idea about how many Mastodon instanced died these years... 🤦♂️
@coyote Well, I understand users can come and go but, I mean, a whole instance?
If you start an instance you should keep it running or don't start it at all... As an admin you're providing a service, if you don't have time/money/whatever you can always give the server management to someone else... Seems to me that a lot of instances were born for fun, and not with serious intentions.
@mdallastella It's a real problem. I often save links to toots and process them later. Was going through that list a few days ago, and about 25% if the instances are gone :(
@minoru a real pity.
i am guessing it was less than the number existing and created.
@Nikolai_Kingsley I'm just surprise about the mortality rate.
