Looks like this comes from https://www.hexbear.net/, as I understand they started federating today (https://www.hexbear.net/post/272295) with 23K users and 271K posts.

This would explain the spike in the number of users and the number of publications. So no, they're not bots.

Hexbear migrated to upstream Lemmy yesterday (they were running a home developed fork from an earlier version of Lemmy). I submitted the instance to fedidb earlier today (after a bunch of failed attempts because fedidb kept erroring out/timing out for some reason). Afaik, federation is not active (yet) on their instance.

Yup, they don't seem to be federating.

tobor,

Not on Kbin (hi from sh.itjustworks) but I love to see it popping off. I just hope they're ready because if it's like this now, after the 30th is gonna be nuts

hiyaaaaa23,

I don't think we've seen any evidence of this yet but I think we should be skeptical of sudden spikes. Could be bots.

Edit: See here https://lemmy.cat/post/6401

atomKbin,

Not to mention a couple hours ago someone publicly disclosed a bug that could create thousands of new accounts quickly.

darkstar,

Where was this disclosed?

can,

Lemmy.cat

I cross posted it, check my posts.

Edit: Here's a screenshot.

bdonvr,

Way too sudden. Someone just either made a bunch of fake accounts or that graph found a big instance it wasn't counting before - hexbear possibly?

Organic growth would not be so sharp, you'd expect to see it continue for more than an hour and slowly taper down

ghariksforge,
callyral,

nice to be part of this, the fediverse is awesome. i joined kbin (readit.buzz) yesterday

off-topic but OP is your username related to The Good Place?

Very_Bad_Janet,

Yes! 😋

Ooh exciting stuff, I wonder if there is another wave with the appocalypse on the 30th.

I suspect that will be the next wave too. Then whenever reddit gets closer and closer to going public I have a feeling they have more steps in place they will start to change/shut down more subs that don't 'align' with a clean image they want advertisers and shareholders to see. The place will become more and more dry as everything becomes about pleasing those who pay them rather than the community.

I could be wrong but with how they ignored and responded to the recent protest (whether people agree with the protest or not) they clearly are hell bent on their way or the highway.

can,

It's weird because if they're going to do that why not just leave /r/piracy private?

Pilirin,

the r/modcoord people finally admitted that there's no use sticking around and have finally started saying to leave reddit

Cryst,

Who r those people?

Badabinski,

That's incredibly impressive! I haven't noticed a single hitch and I've been browsing nonstop for the past hour or so.

krevassi,

Odd 503 error here and there due to cloudflare, otherwise smooth like butter!

Yesterday I was receiving a 503 error a few times. I've run into it once today when trying to upvote a post. At the very least kbin seems to be handling traffic pretty well.

Cloudflare is gone now, the 503 errors are caused by things being worked on!

krevassi,

Progress!

The live page psuedo app is working well for me on grapheneOS with the vanadium browser, I do also get a random 503 error but it's already so much better than a couple days ago

Always good to see another grapheneOS user in the wild.

Halvdan,

One more reporting in!

soeren,

I think it's bots to be honest. my server went up to 1.5k from 120. not sure what i should do? i closed open registration.

Very_Bad_Janet,

Can you figure out which accounts arecreal people and which are bots?

ptsdstillinmymind,

Good, reddit should die.
