Pinned toot

@jpwarren @robcorr I have written thoughts about this issue.

In short - I propose - DMs are off by default. You have to make an explicit choice to use them and understand the risks.

We're launching on small instances, and will scale up as required to meet the needs of our friendly neighbours on this instance.

So we're going to keep it tight for a few weeks to make sure we're stable.... as I don't want to shut this down in a few months due to uncontrolled growth. also need to consider promoting people to moderate as we continue to grow. Be cool.

If you're interested in an invite, send us a DM.

Thanks for your understanding,
The Staff.

*snort* the bot's run script is called toot.sh and it's on a pi in the root's home so it's called /root/toot.sh

@trentyarwood So great. I figure all of what I actually want will end up here eventually as all my good peeps come over. There's enough now for me to stay.

So uhhh every Coles store in Australia is closed because of an IT problem... in case anyone else is planning on venturing out in the freezing gale to buy some bananas.

My name that I set in “Orwell” was Emmanuel Goldstein and I’m surprised it worked

People will argue that using DMs on here is unsafe because the admins of servers can view it. Arguably, you should use DMs for no more than you should be using them on any platform that doesn't encrypt them end to end, like Twitter.

It's about assessing your own operational security risk. Use DMs like private messages on Slack or a forum. Use Signal or another encrypted messenger if privacy is highly important.

This looks very "digital rights" areas - checkin' it out - 5 hours for a game about what looks like the panopticon peeps. get on it!
