sorry the server has been experiencing huge issues for the past 4 days (the home feed and notifications are frozen, among other things) and since notification did not work I wasn't notified until yesterday but couldn't look at it until today.

I had to ask for help from a mastodon contributor and we're still unsure what went wrong here.
If we've hit the right spot things should go back to normal by midnight UTC time. If not we'll still have some digging to do tomorrow.

Sorry for all this.

Sorry for the few days of down time, the machine crashed again and I have no idea why 😭

Hi everyone, I'm really sorry for the few days of downtime the instance experienced. The disk was full, I had to migrate the instance to a new server but I didn't have much spare time to deal with it until today. Sorry for that again 😣

This instance upgraded to Mastodon 2.8.0rc1.

This release allows us to somewhat reopen our registrations and request invites directly on the main page without having to contact someone on the instance.

This release also adds polls as one of its main features, and plenty of other things. Full changelog below:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Please report any bugs or problem you encounter here as it is still a release candidate.

The instance is gonna stay closed until someone finds a way to get rid of the spam bots

We are currently experiencing a DDOS attack on our server which is slowing down federation considerably. Access and use of the instance is not affected though.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll do my best to mitigate the attack.

Migration done... though there was a problem with the media_attachments directory which, for some reason, wasn't picked up by rsync and is missing so lots of media/pictures are not accessible right now.
This issue is taking care of right now and should be fixed in the coming hour

ok let's actually do something here..

(sorry for the downtime people :/)

Instance going down in 3 .. 2 .. 1 .....

Transphobia, USA politics 

Oh my god, that's terrible. The Donald Trump's administration is planning to make regulations to outlaw the concept of gender. It would have terrible repercussions for trans people.
