Please consider the attached video introduction before reading this post, or replying to this thread.

Proposal
An OStatus compliant microblogging instance available on social.lainchan.jp or through an affiliate provider. Examples of such services include https://unsafe.space/ and https://gs.smuglo.li, which are built on postActiv.

Why?
There's a marked absence of decent cyberpunk communities in the GNUsocial federation, largely due to soykaf.com meeting an untimely demise at the hands of Canadian law enforcement. The domain and site are under new ownership, but unfortunately pleroma.soykaf.com will not be functioning for a while. social.lainchan.jp would provide a persistent social space outside of the IRC where the lainchan community could interact not only internally, but also with other federated OStatus services.

While people interested in the GNUsocial federation could just join an already extant instance, social.lainchan.jp would provide a central instance for people who would like to affiliate with lainchan and a community that is definitively by lainons, for lainons. The presence of lainchan on the "fediverse" could also act as exposure for lainchan.jp to a new demographic already receptive to cyberpunk culture.

social.lainchan.jp would provide microblogging and status updates from the lainchan staff, and could act as a home to statusbots and announcements that would otherwise be done through a centralized, proprietary service like Twitter.

How?
postActiv works pretty well. A fork of GNUsocial, it's got a good amount of documentation and several improvements over the original software. With Qvitter or PleromaFE on top it largely functions identical to how Twitter would, with the bonus of federation.

There's also Mastodon, which has become extremely popular as of late. It's become extremely popular as of late, but is built on Ruby and is a bit more complex to deploy than postActiv is. It also tends to make design decisions that put it at odds with other OStatus compliant providers.

Discussion
This thread is to gauge interest in this sort of service from the present community, for the collection of further ideas and thoughts about how this could be organized and deployed, and for any questions about the OStatus protocol or GNUsocial community I can answer.

I used to know karl IRL. This is actually not the real story. He just got tired of the broader social federation drama, and prepared a fake yet believable story about a takedown by law enforcement as a way to end it all without people personally blaming him. He didn't offer to transfer the domain to anyone because he's the type who would rather burn a project to the ground when he's done with it rather than see it flourish under someone else.

Microblogging is a different social format than either really. Imageboards are a good place to have impersonal conversations about a subject, while something like postActiv would allow users to post and communicate with a persistent identity minus the stigma of being a tripcode user.

Like I said also, the social site would be an OStatus presence for lainchan connecting it to other sites and social spheres in a more organic way than the affiliation system.

This sounds like a plan, to me. Been interested in GNUsocial but never saw any reason to take the jump until now. PostActiv is still compatible with GNUsocial, though, right?

 No.229

As in lainchan, I can't view webms in Tor Browser w/o JS for some odd reason. I say odd because it was always possible on other chans with the same software (8chan has vichan right?) Anyway just letting you know that this bug is here as well.
