Hi Fediverse 👋

it's @tobias here, broadcasting via this new fediverse account representing (formerly) 🎉

Please follow, dm and @ this account for everything related to the English version ... as @swisode wants to write German posts again 😁

It's been one week since the . There hasn't been any news from the original author yet. So, I believe, it's on us to keep this project alive.

Please stay tuned as I'll ask for support here - after some more preparations. 💻

@switchingsoftware @tobias @swisode thank you so much for picking up the baton! I was shocked and am still mystified about what happened to the original creator/author ... hope he/she is okay.

@switchingsoftware Thank you very much for your great work 👍 I hope we have a working version of SwitchingSocial again soon 😃

@switchingsoftware @tobias @swisode

Hi! And thanks to bring to life again #switchingsocial :)

I found a Yutub link where it says Mastodon "has quite a good video" switching.software/federated-s

Could you please replace it for a Peertube video? :) peertube-index.net/search?text

Thanks in advance :)

@switchingsoftware
Thank you very much for your work. It is much appreciated.

🙂

@switchingsoftware @tobias @swisode
I have a copy of the Switching Social eBook that I can send to you as a PDF if it's of any help getting things started again? I heard what happened but haven't been following since then.

@blacklight447 Sadly, there is still no sign of life from the original anonymous author of the website. I hope he is fine.

@switchingsoftware @swisode @tobias I'm glad you condemn change .org (switching.software/replace/cha), but there is a much better reason to avoid #changedotorg than what you give. Change.org is a #CloudFlare site, which means ppl are *excluded* from signing #petitions. Petitions to be available to all ppl. CF is also a privacy abuser, so supporting a good cause becomes entangled w/a bad actor.

@tobias @swisode @switchingsoftware note that #moveOn has the same problem (#CloudFlare). Consider suggesting thepetitionsite.com as an ethical and inclusive alternative

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo
Yes that is the big problem with these so-called #petition sites.

The petitions they produce are not even strictly legal because real #petitions need to be signed by hand in #Australia.

We tell people to haunt #shoppingCentres, high traffic areas and #doorKnock to have your petition signed.

Person to person.

Btw how did you work out change (dot)org is Cloucflare? Twas elusive to us.

@switchingsoftware @swisode @tobias

@switchingsoftware @swisode @tobias
...and then we tried visiting the site directly and was blocked by #Cloucflare. :(

Thanks for the tip off, @aktivismoEstasMiaLuo.

These people are experts at #dataMining. They really have it 'down to a fine art'.

@dsfgs @tobias @swisode @switchingsoftware there are a couple plugins for dealing with #CloudFlare sites. This one detects CF sites & automatically redirects to a cached version of the page: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef This plugin detects & refuses to load pages from your choice of CF, AWS, MS, Google, etc: gitlab.com/gkrishnaks/cloud-fi
