Bluesky has successfully built a vibrant community of 600,000 users on its initial test server, but faces challenges reconciling its vision of an open, decentralized protocol with the community's desire for a more managed social environment. This proposal suggests maintaining the existing server as a standalone entity while launching a new, open atproto network. Users could choose between the two, maintaining their identity across both platforms. By potentially transferring management of the existing server to its users and exploring various funding options, Bluesky could align with its original vision of empowering communities, while still accommodating diverse needs and upholding the open protocol.
