@TheAdmin このような時に、私はもっと日本語を勉強したかったのです。

@TheAdmin
What does this mean for us users? Will anything change? :blobwaitwhat:

@evelynyap They will take over operation of the mastodon.cloud from us.
But nothing is going to change.

@TheAdmin ...so you couldn't muster a simple 500 character announcement here?

@superroach @TheAdmin lmao, i know, right...? 😂

why only a link to some japanese blog site?

@RaccoonWillie @superroach @TheAdmin there is a link in English, below the Japanese one. But I still don't understand what they were trying to say 😂 It's an announcement for mastodon. cloud users but still I don't know what should I expect after their 'operation'. More anime? Lmao

@kejt @RaccoonWillie @superroach
They're just saying that operation of mastodon.cloud will change from ze French 🇫🇷 monsieur to the Japanese 🇯🇵 kibou-san.

As far as users are concerned, nothing changes. :awesome:

(I asked @TheAdmin earlier today.)

@evelynyap @RaccoonWillie @superroach @TheAdmin aaaaa... ok.... well we were confused for a moment.
I even felt guilty for no reason and had a vision that FOR SURE they'll kick me out of mastodon.cloud , but that's just me ROTFL 😅 Thanks for your support!

@kejt @superroach @TheAdmin lol, they're actually saying their preferred method of communicating is creating a simple text readme file and posting it on a 3rd party site like pastebin... even though the actual 'announcement' is less than 365 characters. 👈😎🇺🇸

@TheAdmin I’m surprised to know this news. I’d like to know how this affects the users of mastodon.cloud.

@TheAdmin
Thanks for all your hard work making this instance the success it's been.

For those missing the significance of "we have an announcement", it's that is being transferred to a Japanese concern. Whose commitment to English-language communications apparently involves not-entirely-accurate texts posted to Pastebin.

Google Translate of the Japanese announcement:
