the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

for a lot of reasons, both personal and practical, i don't think i can effectively run a public mastodon instance any more, and i need to retire cybre.space. i want to do this responsibly and make sure everyone has a chance to migrate and export properly, so here is the plan for the instance retirement (feel free to share this link around): cybre.space/~chr/cybre-space-e

due to ongoing moderation load issues and understaffing, between now and 1 november, the instance may be undermoderated. for other instances, if this poses an issue for you, i encourage you to use federation tools at your discretion. i would only ask that you be clear and public about your decisions so that cybre.space users can figure out where they will be able to migrate their accounts.

thank you

@chr I kept pondering, but I guess it didn't feel like an option for you to pass on the torch to someone else?

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr oh no, sorry to hear that it's become so much of a burden on you despite all the cool things that happened with it over the years

@chr thank you! this instance was amazing. i liked spending time on here, even though it was brief (around 8 months). this was the first fedi instance i joined and through it i met loads of cool people

and thank you for communicating clearly that the instance is going down and giving a notice in advance.

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr thanks for harboring us when we had an alt back in the day. Definitely a piece of fedi history going down, but we respect your decision fully.

re: the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr RIP cybre space

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr thank you for your efforts!

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr it has been a pleasure to federate with cybre.space, and I hope its users find a good alternative.

anyone from cybre who wants an account at transmom dot love just ask me! it's a tiny but stable glitch-soc instance exclusively for moms who are trans. (not necessarily literal childcarers; you are trans and a mom if you tell me you are one.)

transmom.love/about/more

in practical ways you are probably better off at larger instances, but if you like the domain name and glitch-soc you're welcome.

@elilla Maybe I don't understand social media or Fediverse. Isn't this kind of thing better as a group chat/Matrix server?

@sysinshell I do have a Matrix server, if you want to chat with friends. the mastodon server is to do the equivalent of twittering

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr Thank you for all your work, including the care you're taking over the retirement process.

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr I know you're getting a ton of messages, but thank you so much for what y'all put into this place over the years. On my journey through here, I made all sorts of friendships and connections I never would have made otherwise. ❤️

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr *offers hugs* was nice hanging out here, good luck to ya

re: the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr I will always remember fondly the florps and pings and sideways toots that originated from your corner of the federation, my friend, and I hope to still see your presence in my feeds after the retirement :blobpats:

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr thank you so much for handling this responsibly and being able to admit when it's time to end gracefully. much prefer that to a big explosive end.

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr Thank you so much for running your instance for so long, a wonderful you did! :purple_sparkling_heart:

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr may the future treat you well and thank you for running the instance all these years

@chr
Totally get it, and what amazing times I've had here! Thank you so much for the work you put in <3
I'm super sad to leave, but as I said, I've had a fantastic couple of years!

Wishing you all the best, please take care of yourself:)

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr

Damn this is a very well managed exit, nicely done :)

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr Oh wow.

I guess this has been a long time coming, but it's still sad to see cybre.space go.

Just as when pv and switter went down, I think this demarcates the end of an era for the fediverse. 😢

Still the best domain name and I've been spelling it cybre ever since.

It was a really good run, tho and I hope cybre.space will rise once again. 🖤

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr thank you for this service!

the mastodon instance at cybre.space is retiring 

@chr Aw, sad to see the instance shutting down, but you've been doing a lot of good work for a long while now, and I hope you feel cherished for giving that for this long to so many.
