Currently this instance (en.osm.town) is hosted & paid for privately by me. Should I move this to the OSMF payment & control?

I am on the OSMF Board BTW, and this was a recommendation of the OSMF's FOSS Policy Special Committee

I've started the process of getting funding for this mastodon instance from the OSMF. 🙂

Good news! The has agreed to fund this server. More details to come.

@amapanda
Could it be renamed to social.openstreetmap.org?

@reclus I haven't thought about that much.
I like the idea of keeping the “en” part, to show that the english language isn't №1. I took the idea from fr.osm.social.
wouldn't everyone's links break if we changed the domain?
Would we lose all followers (etc) if we changed the domain?

@amapanda That's good. I recall that OSMF reached out to ask if I wanted to manage OSM's fedi presence but I pointed them your way because I'm kinda going through a lot right now and can barely manage my own.

@amapanda does this mean I need to read many pages of etiquette guidelines now?

@InsertUser there will be no change to the moderation, or administration, of this instance
