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?

More info here:

Toot toot!

TOOT TOOT!

Hello there! We've upgraded to Mastodon version 3.2.0rc1. More details here:

Hi everyone! We've updated to Mastodon v3.1.5:

As always thanks to Eugen and the rest of the Mastodon development team for all their hard work 🙂

We've made some tweaks to the server to address the performance issues we've been experiencing.

Over the last 24 hours, does mas.to feel:

Hello everyone! We run mas.to as a free service because we love Mastodon and the fediverse, but it costs us money! Once a month we reach out with an appeal to our users for donations to help with our running costs. Even small donations are a great help, and all donations are very much appreciated!

Regrettably we've had to deal with several instances of racist content over the last 24 hours.

We remind our users that we have a zero tolerance policy on racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia on this instance, in accordance with our instance rules.

Like many other Mastodon instances mas.to is paid for and run by private individuals. We do not owe any user a platform, and will actively remove any user who believes they can post racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic content here.

In other news, spambots are increasing turning their attention to Mastodon instances. This instance is actively moderated and we do try and stem the flow of spam accounts, but we need your help!

If you see a spam toot, do please report it so that we can keep our instance tidy 🙂

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone's coping in these difficult times.

Usually at the start of the month we'd run a fundraiser to cover the running costs of this instance, but we're going to skip this again this month due to the hardships many of our users might be facing.

Stay safe and stay well! ❤️

We've removed the block of recent spam registrations and have blocked the offending IP addresses to try and prevent future issues. Registration is now open again.

Hi everyone, due to a recent surge in spam registrations we've temporarily moved to approval-based registrations. We'll move back to the normal registration model once we've dealt with these.

Hey, Mastodon v3.1.3 raises the minimum required version of Redis from 3 to 4. I have now included a bold warning about this in the release notes -- I'm sorry I haven't done so from the start.

So, after carrying out some forensic investigation on what went wrong, it appears that our upgrade to a newer version of Redis didn't work. It looked like it had, but hadn't.

We've corrected the issue with Redis and everything appears to be _properly_ working now, but we'll monitor the situation.

Unfortunately because of the nature of the issue the @trumpet account didn't receive any of your messages saying there was a problem!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused folks 🙂

The issue affecting our timelines has been resolved. Thanks for your patience!

We've been made aware of an issue where the federated timeline is showing our local timeline, and are investigating.

As it's the start of the month we'd usually do a fundraiser to help cover the costs of running this instance.

This month, due to the global situation with Covid-19, we'll skip the fundraiser and simply ask our users to stay safe and stay well 🙂

Take care folks!
