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.

@CitrusTree I've just been made aware of this and will investigate now.

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

More info here:



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.

@binyamin Sorted, mas.to is now marked as safe. Strangely they’ve categorised it as gambling rather than social media. Will try and get that fixed too.

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!

@binyamin Thanks for letting me know! Not sure what their rationale is, will investigate.

@duy Hah! No you're right. I received a notification that GitHub has updated and didn't check the date stamp. Something odd must have happened on GitHub...

@florian Oops, I think there was a typo in your instance URL when I added it to the approval list. Try deleting/re-adding again!

@florian Nope, you should be on the approval list already. Try removing the relay, then re-adding it.

@florian Thanks for letting me know! You'd only really need to let us know if you removed the references to sexism, racism, transphobia or homophobia. If an instance using our relay removed those terms then we'd have to reconsider their use of our relay, but you're good for now! 🙂

@ernmander I have to acknowledge the dedication of our moderators @duy and @KNTRO in keeping things running here! 🙂

@gubi Thanks for letting us know! We suspended them yesterday, we have zero tolerance for that sort of content.

@azn I think that would be less problematic. You can redraft posts on Mastodon.

@azn If you dislike our rules or moderation style many other instances are available and migration of your account to another one is a simple process.

@azn mas.to is run by and moderated by volunteers. Moderation is done on a best efforts basis, and as per the rules of this instance moderation decisions are final. I've read the article and understand your argument, but I still believe the wording 'supporting church burnings' could be taken out of context and is potentially inflammatory. I'm marking this post as sensitive for the time being. The warning stands.

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:
