I’m going to be taking on a rather large change of life in the very near future, and I’m having to dump a bunch of responsibilities and hobby-type things.
This lemmy instance falls in to that category. I would love to see someone with the technical know-how volunteer to pick up the domain, this database, and host this somewhere, keeping continuity going.

Is this still happening?
edit: I see that it already has! Sorry!
I could possibly do that. could you tell me some details what you’re using to host it currently? you can pm me if that’s easier too.
I’m happy you’ve volunteered to take over. I just started with the fediverse and it’d be sad to have to restart already.
I’m not terribly technical, but I look forward to helping build up the content. If there’s a way I can help, let me know.
It’s just a vhost on a dedicated server that I have for a bunch of things. Requires rust and postgresql - and I’m not sure how light of a server would handle it. The lemmy processes are taking up over 5GB RAM, but that’s mostly due to pict-rs, and I’m not sure if it’s just being lazy with cleaning itself up or not. (if I restart pict-rs it’s very light)
The DB size is about 566MB presently.
Anything other particulars you wanted to know about presently?
just out of curiosity, which installation method do you use (docker/ansible/scratch)?
also, approx how much moderation do you do?
I’ll try and get Lemmy running in the next week or so, just to see how that goes, and to make sure the server has enough horsepower.
How’re things going?
sorry, things are taking longer than I anticipated. I hope to have something working by next weekend. I’ll keep you posted.
I got a test instance setup easily. everything seems straightforward. so I’m willing to go ahead with this, if you are!
My setup is from scratch. Most of my moderation is spam removal: https://lemmy.ca/modlog
