Hello, scalie.business users.

It's taken me a while to come to this decision, and I don't make it lightly, but I don't have the energy I thought I did to manage this instance to the level I would like to. Since I can't provide adequate service, and don't see that changing in the near future, I am going to make this instance effectively single-user going forward. I've closed registrations, and after a grace period of a month or two, I will be disabling login on all accounts.

I recommend migrating to a larger instance such as yiff.life or snouts.online for instances with a lively furry community and active moderation teams.

You can notify visitors to your profile that you've moved accounts by going to "Settings", then "profile", then scroll down to the bottom and click "Configure it here" under "Move to a different account". You can also use migrannounce.tools.codl.fr/ to announce the move to all your followers.

Thanks for believing in this instance, even if most of you aren't active. I wish I had the energy to shepherd it better, but, I don't.

Your friend and kobold CEO,

Update: the date for this instance closing is now set at October 5th. Please be sure to follow the instructions upthread for migrating your account to another instance. All scalie.business users should have received a DM with this information. Thank you.

@ceo Sad to hear, but thank you for investing the time and resources to keep it running for this long.

@ceo hey this is really late but I really appreciated your community for the brief time I used it and it had a name I thought was cool. Also your default theme was infact, very good 👌

shame to see you go even if you weren't really that big, good luck w/ whatever spurred this!

@ceo popping back on this old account to say it'll be a shame to see it go, considering it was one of my first instances and the first place that truly felt like a fediverse Home. Thank you for running it, and for giving me that first fediverse home, and it's good you're giving the active users long enough to find a new home.
