Yesterday was Quitter‘s 6th birthday! The first quip was posted on August 12, 2010. The celebration included the traditional Swedish smörgåstårta. Now we’re looking forward to the 12th birthday party!
Last year was a great year for En Kompis Kompis! Qvitter has improved, and the number of users on the GNU social network is constantly increasing. New instances pop up all the time too. Check out e.g. Quitter.no, Quitter.nu, Gnusocial.no and Anarchy.social, hosted by kollektivet0x242 in Norway. Quitter.is and Quitter.es is provided by MMN-o, and there is also laMatriz, Quitter.im, Quitter.cat, Gnusocial.de, Gnusocial.ch etc etc. Great!
We have bought a used but much faster server that also have a lower energy consumption. The server change also meant we could upgrade the OS and set up a much better backup solution.
We are very grateful for all the generous donations during 2015. More than half the internet connection fees and utility costs were covered by gifts from people on GNU social! The server was donated by @3mp0, our chairperson. This year we will get better at sending thank you emails to the people who donate!
Hannes has been invited to represent En Kompis Kompis at the GNU social camp in Gijón, october 7-8. He will will give a Master Class on the development of GNU social plugins and will lead a workshop.
Quitim has been updated to the latest GNU social and the user interface (source) has some new design features. The front page for logged out users now shows the latest popular images.
And user lists look better now:
Join us! :)
This weekend we installed a new (dumpsterdived) UPS. The batteries still worked, but we are considering replacing them with new ones.
