Fosstodon boosted

Hey folks, we had a little outage for a while there, sorry about that.

Our DB decided to have a brain fart in the middle of an upgrade. All should be back to normal now though.

Hey again,

We believe that the technical issues we were experiencing earlier have been resolved. We're continuing to monitor the system to make sure everything is working up to our standards.

If you see anything that doesn't appear to be working as expected, please let us know!


Hey folks,

You might be having issues with things like image uploads and notifications not appearing (among other things).

We've exhausted our server resources (nice problem to have!) and are working on upgrading now.

Please bear with us...

@markusl @carroarmato0 @KeybaseIO nothing changed this side, unless it’s something that’s been done up stream on Mastodon.

Hey folks, it’s that time, again, where we’ve saved up enough donations to support a few open source projects. As we’ve always mentioned; we’ll spread the love to open source projects when we’ve reached a surplus in funding. For this round, we’ve decided to make 2 donations, in the amount of $300 each.

@apetresc it’s open to anyone who donates. The problem with Liberapay is that it’s anonymous from our perspective, so we have no way to validate who has donated.

If you can email us some proof (receipt etc.) we will be happy to add you!

@martijnbraam like a colophon? Not really, but here's a high level:

We host with Masto.Host (

Our CDN is provided by BunnyCDN.

We have a $5/m digital ocean droplet that handles our Mattermost server.

We register domains with NameCheap.

We host email with Zoho mail.

@totoroot that only includes people on Patreon. It's VERY difficult to find who'e actively donating on Liberapay as it shows people who give 1-off donations too.

@apetresc here's the issue -

If you want to see this implemented, go add a comment, see if we can get the dev team to move on it. 🙂

@apetresc we've discussed that lots of times, but unfortunately, it's not possible without a huge amount of work.

There are GitHub issues logged on the Mastodon repo to add such support, but they haven't had much traction, last I checked.
