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.

anarchism.space just got upgraded to Mastodon 2.6.1

Major feature: The direct messages column has been remastered

Highlights from the changelog: blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/10/

The migration is done. If you see anything that doesn't work properly (email, missing image, mixed-up image, …) please report to me

- @ChatLibertaire

anarchism.space is going to be down for a few hours either tonight or tomorrow to migrate to a server with more disk space, I wasn't expecting the database to grow this quickly, it's my fault, I'm sorry.
However it should take a lot less time than the previous migration and cause much less problem.

- @ChatLibertaire

Sorry anarchism.space was unavailable for the last few hours. I made a mistake while transferring the domain name to a better registrar and haven't seen it was broken until a few minutes ago.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

- @ChatLibertaire

anarchism.space is going to hopefully migrate to another server around 20:00 tonight (GMT+2).

Long downtime to be expected

Sorry we had a bit of an disk space issue on the server and this instance was unavailable for the past two hours an a half. The federation and login was broken for everyone. Sorry for the inconvenience. This is now fixed.
