Hi everyone! It's December so we're going to have another quick fundraiser.

We pay for the costs of running mas.to ourselves and are more than happy to do so! But of course if any of our users would like to contribute that would make our lives easier 馃檪

You can donate towards our running costs by PayPal:


or by Bitcoin:


Every little helps. Thank you!

Similar to Twitterati on Twitter, what should folks on Mastodon should be collectively called :

We're going to use the following as our main Bitcoin address from now on.

Don't worry, our other one also works! But we'd prefer to use this one going forward:


We've already had one donation for which we're very grateful!

We provide mas.to as a free service and in the spirit of Mastodon that will never change. We will also always pay for mas.to ourselves, but any contributions are more than welcome!

To avoid spamming for donations we'll only send infrequent reminders of our PayPal and Bitcoin details.

Thanks for your feedback folks. We're going to run a trial of silencing three of the largest porn instances. This means their posts won't turn up in the federated timeline, but you can still follow and view users on those instances if you like.

(Our current settings on mas.to allow porn on the federated timeline, but obscure the images).

How do you prefer porn to be shown on the federated timeline?

Oops! We had a minor SSL certificate issue which is now fixed. Apologies for any inconvenience.

EXCITING TIMES! We have upgraded to Mastodon v3.0.0.


Thanks to @Gargron and all the development team for their hard work 馃檪

HI EVERYONE. Mastodon v3.0.0rc1 has just been released and we've updated the instance already.


We've just carried out an essential infrastructure update. You might have experience a very brief outage this morning but everything's up and running again.

Hi folks, we鈥檙e investigating reports of performance issues. We鈥檝e restarted the Mastodon service just in case.

We experienced what appears to be a DDoS attack last night. This was all handled by flow control upstream on our network and as far as I can tell this didn't cause any downtime.

We've suspended the weedis.life instance due to a flood of spam follows from dozens (hundreds?) of random users. A temporary suspension for now but we'll keep an eye on it.

If you are using Toot! or Mast on iOS please do consider leaving them positive reviews to counter-act trolls!

Do you have any suggestions for mas.to? Good or bad feedback? Let us know! 馃檪

Hello! This is mas.to, a general-purpose, predominantly English-speaking instance. We're enthusiastic about Mastodon, and want to make this instance special. We've settled on a nice, short domain name, keep up-to-date with the latest Mastodon updates and features and want to make an easygoing and fun place to interact with other Mastodon users.
