A Mastodon instance for people who support Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
FLOSS.social was launched on 1 April 2018 as a Mastodon instance for people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS). Of course, discussions aren't limited to just FLOSS -- we all share our unique interests! English is preferred for maximum conversation opportunities within the FLOSS community, but it is not required. Respect is required, however: Users on FLOSS.social agree to abide by the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct. This service was installed and is maintained in part by Masto.Host with equipment located at OVH.
Our goal is to receive sufficient donations from our users to crowdfund ongoing operational expenses related to operating the instance: web application hosting (monthly), outbound email server (monthly), and domain name registration (annually). Any excess funds will be held for future related instance needs or in the event donations dip below expenses.
Regular expenses (US Dollars):
- Domain name registration: $30/year
- Outbound e-mail and deliverability services: $10/month
- Enhanced ElasticSearch indexing for full-text search: $10/month
- Right-scaled web application hosting, CDN, monitoring: $70/month
Wish list of future improvements:
- A small Matrix server to host a room/space, and accounts for moderators
- Improved monitoring
- Blog, e.g., WriteFreely
