Hi Fediverse 👋

this is for everyone interested in supporting switching.software 🙂

Here is my proposal on how to reorganize and improve the codebase of the website:


I would really appreciate your feedback - comment right here or on the issue 🗨️

Also, who would like to join the effort? And don't worry, we will figure out the "how" together - soon after the proposal is community-approved 😁

@switchingsoftware Hi there, question: who are you?

Your bio says “formerly known as switching.social” but I spoke to the person who was running (and shut down – for personal reasons – switching.social) and they said they don’t know who’s running this and that they’re not involved.

Can you please clarify?

Thank you.



It's a project to reconstruct the work from switching.social after disappearing.

It appeared after the original author disappeared without any notice from one day to the other.If you have contact to them, please tell that I and I guess a lot of other people, wish him the best :)

@tobias is currently reconstructing the website and resources.

(I'm just a bystander but enjoy both's work, the original switching.social as well as the new switching.software)


@sheogorath @tobias @switchingsoftware Thanks for the background. I believe the original author is aware of how much we all appreciated/appreciate the resource.

Congrats on the effort to relaunch it, @tobias

PS. The original author may or may not be a he. They wish to remain anonymous.

If you have contact to the original author, could you talk to them about maybe transferring the switching.social domain in the spirit of 4042302?
It think the disappearance of the domain broke quite a lot of links out there that would profit from that.

@sheogorath @tobias @switchingsoftware

@ck @sheogorath @tobias @switchingsoftware I know it did and I hear you :( But as far as I can tell, they are done with it. And I don’t want to push.

Please thank whomever it was for all their work, a true treasure:)
