Kind of tired of the constant server problems, thought this would be the possibility for me and my friends to go full opensource and decentralized, but it seems we aren't there yet. 😥
Has made a pretty bad impression on those that aren't as enthusiastic for libre software and decentralization as me among my social group.
To the contrary, being able to do so in a fairly stable ecosystem is the very proof that Matrix works for what it is designed for. What's still missing is a kind of entry point in the ecosystem, for people to choose an adequate homeserver or learn how to do so if they have the ability.
In the meantime you can find a list of a few public homeservers at the following address: https://www.hello-matrix.net/public_servers.php
@ChrisTalleras if you're going "full decentralized" you probably shouldn't be using the free best-effort matrix.org server.
Again, we apologise for the disruption and are throwing a tonne of money at the server to improve the service that you're using for free...
doesn't help that it's free if one is trying to share matrix to people and are converting people for you, it's bothersome for us but it's also sad that gonna throw people off using matrix too
@matrix Does there at least exist any instances that we can look at if my friends are willing to give it a last chance?
Can't really find a accessible way of finding instances of matrix
All the best for fixing this, and thanks for an awesome software ecosystem and the services
mastodon.matrix.org is one server in the network
