@Gargron time to bump weekly backups to daily.
@Gargron I agree with you, but the truth is, most people can't be sure that they will be able to warn their users three months in advance before a shutdown. If you are not rich, it's complicated to be sure of something so far ahead.
Also, our previous experience with witches.town showed that people can successfully migrate in one month, even from a medium sized instance.
@Sylvhem @lnxw48a1 @amic I can't really know if people are lying about their backups, emergency access, etc or not, but the covenant gets them to commit to it. It puts in their mind that they should do those things, and that not doing those things would break a promise, which is an incentive to try their best. That's the goal.
@Gargron RIP me
@Gargron schon beim ersten punkt kommts mir vor wie im amiland "white supremacy" ?! Also darf ich als schwarzer hier alle weißen durchem kako ziehen?
warum nur transphobia? Ist homosexualität egal ?
mit solchen punkten kann man persoenngruppen sehr triggern
@oct2pus It's a committment. It serves a purpose of setting up the expectation that the admin's gotta do it, but it can't really be enforced.
@oct2pus I mean sure, if that happens, the admin will not be trusted any longer
@Gargron Who else has access to mastodon.social data?
The bus factor is important yes, but so is knowing who can read your DMs.
@dansup The person who used to host the mastodon.social infrastructure for about a year prior
@Gargron Who is that? I assume it's not just you since mastodon.social is listed on the instance picker.
I didn't know that CobaltVelvet also had access to this instance before you mentioned it a few moments ago.
What I am saying is that it's important to know that before someone else who we don't know or trust takes over.
