Does anyone have a miskey/firefish/iceshrimp/sharkey server with negligible members but still want to continue hosting for the public ?

I have an idea, to create an MBTI focused instance. check this if don't know about MBTI

I cannot afford to create/maintain instance; therefore asking.

The features of misskey or forks are perfect for this use case !

I will do the group creations and stuff ....

the ultimate motive is to create something like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pdb.app&hl=en&gl=US but open-source

I meant that such instances are collecting cookies for login without informing the user or/and not providing any Privacy Policy. Even if they are not collecting IP addresses (which I think is not the case for many), the fact that those instances are not mentioning what data is being collected makes me think that they aren't concerned about user anonymity.

So I was interested in Lemmy, I checked Privacy policies of multiple instances; so far I cannot find any instance which doesn't collect IP address at all; many instances dont even provide any info about what data they are collection (however they are using cookies so I assume they will be logging IPs too). I found some instances that say they delete IP address logs after 12 months, these are :

  1. linux.community
  2. endlesstalk.org
  3. lemmy.one

If anyone knows any other instance with similar or better policy for the user, kindly comment because I took quite a time to read through the "Legal" section of the instances.

Also, I find it odd that lemmy instances are storing 12 months, many firefish instances store IP addresses for 90 days
