Hi everyone, there might be some brief slowdowns or service interruptions for a short while as we're carrying out some maintenance (18:30 GMT 28/01/2020)

A couple of minutes of downtime there while we performed essential system maintenance. Thanks for your patience!

Hi everyone! It's January so we're going to have another quick fundraiser.

We pay for the costs of running mas.to ourselves and are more than happy to do so! But of course if any of our users would like to contribute even that would make our lives easier 🙂

You can donate towards our running costs by PayPal:

paypal.me/mysteryvortex

or by Bitcoin:

Every little helps. Thank you!

Echoing that toot from @Gargron that I just boosted, the same applies here at mas.to. Please be mindful of the instance rules, and if you don’t feel they’re right for you remember that there are thousands of other instances, or you can start your own. That’s the beauty of the fediverse!

Welcome to Mastodon, and mastodon.social specifically! Please be mindful of the code of conduct you agreed to when you signed up.

If for whatever reason you disagree with the rules on mastodon.social, Mastodon offers you a selection of 2,000+ other servers and the ability to start your own.

Cheers!

Similar to Twitterati on Twitter, what should folks on Mastodon should be collectively called :

We're going to use the following as our main Bitcoin address from now on.

Don't worry, our other one also works! But we'd prefer to use this one going forward:

We've already had one donation for which we're very grateful!

We provide mas.to as a free service and in the spirit of Mastodon that will never change. We will also always pay for mas.to ourselves, but any contributions are more than welcome!

To avoid spamming for donations we'll only send infrequent reminders of our PayPal and Bitcoin details.

Thanks for your feedback folks. We're going to run a trial of silencing three of the largest porn instances. This means their posts won't turn up in the federated timeline, but you can still follow and view users on those instances if you like.

(Our current settings on mas.to allow porn on the federated timeline, but obscure the images).

How do you prefer porn to be shown on the federated timeline?

Oops! We had a minor SSL certificate issue which is now fixed. Apologies for any inconvenience.

EXCITING TIMES! We have upgraded to Mastodon v3.0.0.

Thanks to @Gargron and all the development team for their hard work 🙂

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.
