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’re investigating reports of performance issues. We’ve restarted the Mastodon service just in case.

@arh @rodti Don't worry, I spent ages looking at those instructions and Keybase just added us by themselves!

@tho mstdn.foxfam.club and weedis.life for spam, several gab instances, and we reject media from sinblr.com and humblr.social (hides porn images on the timeline, but you can still click on them).

@7 We are enthusiastic about open source and keen to run a well-maintained, performance focused, up to date and fairly moderated instance. And all with a nice, catchy domain name. What’s not to like? 😜

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.

@C_Chell We had lots of it the other day. Instance blocked.

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!

Come on guys, let's give @JPEG some better reviews to compensate for the Gabbers trying to sabotage him:


@Ziad Themes would be great but we could only really do it if they were available for download or developed by the community. Unfortunately we don't have time to design any ourselves!

@lebaux The certificate should now be working with www.mas.to!

@torsky Once you've got your head around the fact that there's LOTS of Mastodon out there to explore it's quite exciting. Keep an eye on the federated timeline for stuff that interests you, or try searching for hashtags or subjects you're interested in.

@torsky Check out the federated timeline. That will give you a look at what people are doing on other instances. If you like what they're saying then (like Twitter or Facebook) you can follow them.

@Ziad We only started up quite recently but since being added to the joinmastodon.org instance finder we're gradually adding users. Onwards and upwards!

@Ziad We've added a batch of custom emoji to get you started. We'll add more soon!

Hello! This is mas.to, a general-purpose, predominantly English-speaking instance.
