Shortly following the publishing of “What are ‘Tildes’ and How You Can Use ‘Tilde Computing’”, an announcement was made regarding tilde.club:
A tildeverse-builder named Mike Buchholz ([email protected]) offered to take over https://t.co/RXxY0MEPYY AND the backlog of 10,000+ people who asked for accounts. I said, that would be a blessing!— Paul Ford (@ftrain) September 13, 2019
If you had an account, it still works. If you asked, they'll be in touch.
Then on September 16, 2019, I got an email from [email protected] which read:
You at some point have requested access to tilde.club. https://twitter.com/ftrain/status/1172545886968324098 I am Michael. I go by the name “deepend” in most places including on tildes/IRC. I run another tilde called YourTilde.com which I created because I really liked the tilde experience and thought I could try my hand at it. The reason for this email is to let you know if you are looking to have an account the waiting list comes first. (that’s you!) So here is what I need from you: I need you to fill out the sign-up form and we will get you setup: https://tilde.club/signup/ Once I have created your account you will receive a welcome email from tilde.club within a few days letting you know that the account was created. I do understand some of you have waited since 2014 for an account, which all involved do regret. But it is a new time and we all at tilde.club hope you join us on our new journey moving forward. Please respond within 1 week to ensure we can re-open registrations to the general public in a timely manner.
Registrations have since re-opened, and anyone can now sign up for the original tilde!
