Exactly at this time five years ago the first toot on chaos.social was made. Since then the instance has grown and today our living room is bigger than we ever expected. But we cleaned up a bit and now there is enough room to celebrate this special date together with all of you! 🥳

We got no feedback on any 502 errors in the last 11 days so it looks like the problem is finally solved 🎉

The only problem is, we changed two things. We might change one back for a short period of time in the next few days to check which of both lead to the problem. So if you experience 502 errors it will only be for a short time but please still report them.

Oh and here are some metrics. That's the reason why we decided that the problem is less urgent and doesn't need immediate attention.

We as operators of chaos.social also wanted to set a sign for the world wide climate strike and added a custom mastodon art to our instance. The mastodon told us that they know quite well the consequences of climate change. So we gave them a sign to demonstrate together with us :)

If you want to add it to your instance too, you could find the SVG here: github.com/chaossocial/custom/
