Calling all admins of instances in the . The is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based , , , , , and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

@rysiek how many fediverse instances are run for profit?

@lain doesn't matter. The Directive will affect everything. And even if there are some exceptions, they will be artificial and eventually dismantled.

We either stop it now, or we get stuck with it.

@lain ah nice. Problem with that, of course, is that "profit-making purposes" is so wide that it's almost irrelevant.

I mean, yeah, private instances will not fall under that. But as soon as you accept any donations...

@lain @rysiek tbh I have the feeling that they'll fuck over all instances that have donations anyway
@rysiek i mean, yes, i think it's a bad idea and an unworkable law, but i don't see how it applies to the vast majority of fediverse instances
