Wow, something weird just happened

I received a notification that there was an upgrade available. And I ran it. And it worked.

Well, that solves a number of issues, but not the principal ones: governance, flexibility, and control of the setup, especially the email setup.

So we’re almost ready to move on to https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/. If you did not already make your move there, and want to transfer your stuff from here to there, PM me and I’ll get you sorted.

… and this thread just happens to be #666 :wink:

I may have missed the memo on this (I just learned about the move to the new URL), but will socialhub.network eventually be redirected to the new URL?

We don’t have access to the server. I thought it was gone when the IP address vanished, but apparently it was just a glitch. Phew…

As we do not have access to the server, etc., we can’t port the topics we want to keep to the new installation: having this service go down would be terrible for our common history.

Anyway, I did not see you yet on https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks, @strypey!

Yeah, sorry, I’ve been busy :wink: Will sign up soon.

Hmm. There ought to be a way to scrape the content and replicate it without backend access to the server. We used to be able to do that with YahooGroups, and that service wasn’t even free code. Surely this isn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened. Have you asked on the Discourse forums?

Even if we redirected the URL, we could still have prominent links on the new site that linked back to the appropriate places on this one. For as long as it stays up :confused:
