Can anyone tell me how big the witches.town instance was when it shut down? Either total accounts or active users? Even a broad guess like "more than 10, less than 100" would be useful to me.

(I ask because I'm writing about instance succession and what happens when an instance shuts down.)

@darius @staticsafe As of archive.org's last snapshot of the about page, here: https://web.archive.org/web/20180417044653/https://witches.town/about

2394 users, 1,259,571 statuses.

IIRC, that was like a week or two before the instance was shut down - the next snapshot from 2018-05-02 redirects to joinmastodon.org, as it was after the shutdown.

@bhtooefr @staticsafe@mastodon.zombocloud.com Thank you!

@darius Total was somewhere around 6000, I think, with maybe 400 active? Those are both just vague memories and impressions though.
