Hello everyone! We've upgraded to Mastodon v3.4.4 because that's the sort of crazy thing we do.

More details here!

@CitrusTree @FediVideos Looks like it's fixed. We've had a few issues since upgrading to v3.4.3.

HELLO EVERYONE! We've upgraded the instance to v3.4.2 and then v3.4.3 as the updates were released in quick succession.

We've noticed there might be an issue logging out of your account using Safari. If this happens go into 'Preferences' and select 'Logout' from the list on the left.

Hey, it seems there's some malware that bots try to get people to download on the fediverse. Be wary, don't click on weird links sent to you by people you don't know, and report those to your admin. Stay safe!

Hello folks! @frederic has asked if any of our users would like to help with a Mastodon survey they're carrying out.

Frédéric says "the survey is in english, no sensitive datas are collected and the informations will be used for research purposes only."

If you'd like to help, the survey is here:

Hello everyone! It's the 1st of June and time to do something we haven't done in a while...

This instance has always been and always will be free to use. It's run by a private individual and paid for out of their own pocket.

mas.to currently costs around GBP80/month to run.

Hey there, no we're not worried about the content of you instance!

Where do you keep your backups?

Hi everyone, the issues with our object storage provider appear to be resolved and everything is back to normal (although the fix we implemented earlier seemed to work anyway).

Hello everyone! We have good news and bad news...

GOOD NEWS:

BAD NEWS:

Our object storage provider is having issues today which has broken media on this instance. Hopefully normal service will resume shortly.

Those of you that caught the announcement earlier will know we were expecting a little downtime today. A faulty disk has been replaced with minimal downtime, everything is back to normal :-) Thanks for your patience folks!

Hello everyone! I hope you're having a nice day. I'm having a nice day. And the fediverse is having a nice day!

And guess what? Mastodon v3.2.1 has been released! And we've upgraded to it already!

We've not asked for donations since the first lockdowns earlier this year, as we know a lot of people will be in difficult circumstances, however we've still received several donations since then.

Thanks to everyone who's donated, it means a lot to us!

This instance is and always will be a free service, but anything that helps cover our costs is hugely appreciated. Stay well and stay safe folks! ❤️

Hello everyone! We've upgraded the instance to Mastodon v3.2.0. More details here:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

There's an issue with playback of audio files that was introduced in v3.2.0rc1 which does have a workaround, but which we've not successfully implemented. We'll get this fixed as soon as we can.

Hello my little friends! Today we have upgraded to Mastodon v3.2.0rc2, and that's got to be a good thing, right?

Toot toot!
