@wowaname @administrator @orekix I did see a report about antisemitism on anime.website two days ago which did not appear to be antisemitic in the slightest, so no moderation action was taken. It did (in Mastodon at least) have two posts tagged. Obviously if that user posted multiple incorrect reports I’d speak to them about it, but not for just one.

@zylaxis 3) Again this is more down to the way the Mastodon software works and federation in general rather than anything specific to mas.to. Some useful tools include the 'discover users' sections of each instance, and recommended users in people's profiles. Hashtags are another good way to find people with similar interests. And of course you might find interesting people on the federated timeline.

@zylaxis Hi there! Thanks for your feedback.

1) Announcements were introduced in a recent version of the Mastodon software. I've used them for maintenance announcements, but will likely continue tooting any non-admin content from the @trumpet account. Announcements will appear as a little 🎺 at the top of your timeline.

2) I'm not aware of any functionality in the Mastodon software to handle that. Possibly a feature request? github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

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!

The migration process shouldn't have caused any problems but do let me know if anything is misbehaving. We did move to a new IP address but our DNS was changed before the move and so should have already taken effect for most people.

Hi everyone! Our migration went reasonably smoothly but not perfectly.

Our first attempt to backup and restore the (compressed) 33GB* of core Mastodon files and databases failed. We tried again with uncompressed data and the migration worked perfectly.

The whole process took just over an hour.

The instance should now be more responsive, and we have plenty of room for future growth.

* Our media is stored in external object storage totalling around 1TB, but didn't have to be moved.

Okay, we'll be going offline in 5 minutes. Back soon...

To answer the question that precisely zero people have asked so far, we don't _need_ to upgrade at the moment and have plenty of capacity to spare, but we have the opportunity to do it now.

It seems a better idea to upgrade when we want to rather than when we need to!

Hello everyone! A reminder that we'll be offline tomorrow (Wednesday) morning from 10am GMT. We're moving to a new server which will keep us running smoothly into the future 🙂

Hopefully this shouldn't take more than an hour, it just depends how long it takes to move the data.

If you have any issues connecting after the upgrade try clearing your DNS cache, as we'll be on a new IP address.

@Gargron I think this has been handled really well, thank Eugen!

⚠️ #Mastodon v3.1.2 is out with an important security fix:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Likewise, v3.0.2 and v2.9.4 have been released to port this fix to older versions.

HEY THERE. We've updated to v3.1.2 of Mastodon and that can only be a good thing, right?

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Hi everyone, we had a few minutes of downtime due to essential maintenance. Everything is back up and running now 🙂

Oh hullo there!

We've upgraded to v3.1.1 of Mastodon which resolves a minor dependency issue in v3.1.0

@leip4Ier Looks like there was a problem with Elasticsearch which has been restarted. Should be fixed now. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Thanks to those of you who have donated this month. It makes a huge difference to have help towards our running costs 😄

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.
