Dear Hackers!

In the last quarter of 2023 our community stabilize around 26k user accounts. We cleaned out a bunch of spam accounts and also gained some new friends, but all in all the size of our community stayed the same.

There were no changes to the team - tellyworth and Troed are doing an excellent job keeping this instance safe. Please express your gratitude when you see them online!

The cost of running #IOCX has stabilized around $350 per month - Here is the breakdown of the monthly costs:
~$300 Linode Server Hosting
~$50 AWS S3

Donations and memberships increased and amounted to an average of $300 per month. The rest of the costs @seb covered with his personal funds. A very big shout-out to everyone who already supported or supports #IOCX financially - It is much appreciated! Everyone, who hasn't contributed yet: Please consider contributing financially through our BuyMeACoffee page.

In Q4 we were able to execute on the following improvements:

  • Installed two minor Mastodon updates

There is always more to do of course. Here are some ideas for improvements for the future:

  • Adding a Translation feature based on LibreTranslate
  • Register a DMCA agent

Please keep feedback coming - Have Fun and Stay Safe!
