Fosstodon is growing fast. When we first started back in August 2017, Mike and I were pretty sure that Fosstodon would end up being a niche instance with me, him and maybe a handful of other FOSS enthusiasts.

I think it's fair to say that when Mike and I started Fosstodon back in 2017, we didn't think we would be the biggest FOSS based instance on the Fediverse. That's just awesome and we love the fact that our little corner of the Fediverse is growing so well.

A few weeks ago, we decided it was time to make some changes to the Fosstodon team and how we manage things around here. We have a really strong team of moderators and also Mike and Kev carry out some moderation duties, as admins.

A few days ago, I wrote the following Toot:

This post caused a lot of upset across the Fediverse it seems, so I wanted to set the record straight in a longer form. This blog seemed like a good place to do it.
