Mastodon Logo

What happened to

Nobody was using it. It was severely out of date (and needed significant changes to be rebased). It was not working right. I didn't have time to maintain it.

Ultimately, it was not useful and presented a security risk.

Is there an alternative?

There is an Akkoma instance if you want a microblogging-focused fediverse server, and there is also a Lemmy instance if you are looking for a reddit alternative. These are running without modifications and are substantially easier to maintain than Mastodon, so are likely to stick around longer than the original.

How can I get my data?

You can't, all data from the Mastodon instance has been deleted.
