Framasphere.org is going to close

It has been announced in 2019, Framasoft, the french NGO which hosts dozens of free software as a service, wants to reduce the number of them running. If you have time, read the blogpost above, it really is interesting (and as we knew how important it is, we translated it in English). One year and a half later, it is time to plan the end of framasphere, which really takes a lot of energy to maintain, mainly because of moderation (and the too simple tools provided to deal with by diaspora).

The end of Framasphere was initially planned before 2021, but I convinced the other members of Framasoft to wait for the account migration feature release. Unfortunately, it still isn’t there and they don’t want to wait anymore.

Because Framasphere is one of the biggest diaspora* pod, its end will impact the project, so I wanted to tell you the news in advance (we still have a few months), to give us time to maybe react to this.
