Hi folks,

some of you may have followed my recent post concerning the possible shutdown of this pod. If you have not, have a look at the following post: https://pod.thomasdalichow.de/posts/1377103#18d54900cb8b0137c662005056008410

From the feedback of this post as well as additional thoughts that have gone into the topic, mostly hailing from the security front, I have come to the conclusion to shut down this pod. It's a bit more than one month from now. 2019-11-16, 04:00 PM (UTC+1).

That being said, here are the steps I will take in order to shut down this pod:
* closing registrations on this pod
* inform you in the form of this post
* send a mail to every user registered on my pod in a couple of days
* shut down the pod at the specified date

Up until the date of shutdown, you will have the possibility to download your data (visit https://pod.thomasdalichow.de/user/edit and scroll to the very bottom). After the date of shutdown, you will neither be able to use the pod nor download your data.

I will immediately erase every data concerning this pod and the data of the users having an account here. It will however take two months to rotate out of my backup cycle. So the data will eventually be erased some time in January 2020.

Wtih one freed IPv4 address at my disposal, I will - in time - set up a different service to contribute to a decentralized world of encrypted communication or encrypted data sharing. However, I have not yet decided what this service will be. If you know of any decentralized communication network that needs another node, a short comment would be very much appreciated.

Well then. Good bye and thanks for all the fish!
Thomas

Good to see there are responsible #podmins that inform their users with possible (scheduled) downtime....
Personally I created an aspect with all users of my pod and send pod/admin related info to that aspect.

10 days ago, after the pod joindiaspora.com was completely broken for three weeks, its podmin wrote this post. I usually keep tabs with still unanswered questions open for a while, so I can ping again. Interestingly, when I wanted to check that post for updates, that post didn't exist anymore. It was deleted by the podmin.

Under the post I asked jd's podmin how he plans to prevent similar issues in the future. I commented that obviously asking for help within feneas didn't help as nobody responded to that question for 3 months.

Lukas then responded by calling me a liar, because somebody did indeed respond! And anyway, this was the first time ever that it took him so long to respond or solve such issues!

And .. wtf?
He was right, he got one response, but that response only added more questions, it was no response to the actual question looking for someone to help maintain the pod.
And I have no idea how on earth he could just state that similar issues never took him so long to respond to or resolve. I mean, just scroll #joindiaspora for a while! Joindiaspora completely looses federation almost every three weeks ("JD's a lonely island again", "Finally seeing other pods' content again after x weeks", etc). It constantly gives 502 or 504 errors to its users when trying to publish posts or uploading photos. Stream isn't loading for weeks. At times where it does actually work, it's mostly so slow that one can barely use it.
Users do talk about it. Users send posts with complaints. Users mention the podmin account and the podmin's personal account. And he usually simply ignores them, for weeks. His reaction this time was no exception, but his usual reaction. See screenshots.

Many people already left joindiaspora, because it's so broken. Other users desperately wait for the account migration tool, so that they can finally leave this broken pod.

If you don't ever see these posts: What kind of parallel universe are you living in?

So let me ask this again:

How do you plan to prevent such issues in the future? How do you plan to solve the issue of you being the only person with access to the pod/server - the only person who can fix problems?

Deleting your posts whenever someone in the comments asks about the future of your pod won't make JD's problems disappear.

#Podmins, I've included the scripts I've used to remediate fake accounts on our pod in the diaspora-scripts repo.

The first script, find-fakes.py will search the diaspora database for users that have no content and only a single log-in and write out the user ids to a file. You may specify --interval <days> to omit newly-created accounts.

The second script, purge-accounts.py will read in the list of user ids and either close (delete) or lock (disable) the accounts in bulk.

If you have no idea what this is all about, see this post.

What is a #Cuckpod?


The precise criteria are somewhat murky, but it seems to involve hurting a Nazi's feelings. Various lame attempts have been made at creating a static list, but thanks to @https://podupti.me we have proper software to do this.

If you're a #cuckpodmin, or just wish you were, add your pod to the list so all of the edgelord shitheels in the Federation know to steer clear of your NPC ass. If you sign up in the next 30 days, George Soros will cover all of your hosting expenses for a year*!

(* I mean, unless he already does -- which is pretty much a given, amirite?)
