Dear chaos.social inhabitants – please be reminded that we ask you not to create invites for this instance that are valid indefinitely / for infinite people! We're looking for slow, organic growth, not a sudden onslaught as we've experienced in the past.

So feel free to invite friends and other people you want to see here – but please be responsible with this option.
Invites with indefinite availability are occasionally disabled by us, to prevent mindless use/abuse.

@taugenichts schreib uns doch Mal eine DM um welchen Account es geht. Es gibt ja noch weitere Gründe warum das nicht gehen könnte.

@taugenichts da sehe ich wenig tatsächlichen nutzen drin. Das hätte außerdem eher den Charakter von einem Pranger, das muss nicht sein.

@taugenichts ja, es gibt einzelne Accounts die ebenfalls blockiert sind, da sie deutlichst gegen die Regeln dieser Instanz verstoßen.

@blinry Jein. Bei Leuten, die hier auch aktiv sind, sind wir mit public Crossposting kulant, solange die Person wirklich hier aktiv ist und antwortet. Retweets sollten allerdings nicht gesynced werden, oder notfalls unlisted sein. Sowohl weil sie Twitter ungefiltert hier abladen, als auch weil Boosts auch nicht auf der lokalen Timeline sind.

After a server reboot, we ran into a spot of trouble due to some leftover troubleshooting from the last big Mastodon bug. We were lagging behind the fediverse for a few hours, but we're nearly back up to speed. :fairydust:

@pinkprius @leah @rixx We are nearly up to speed again, in five minutes everything should be back to normal.

People on chaos.social with an email account @me.com won't receive their notification emails until the nice folks running the blocklist server manage to unblock us.

@n8zug @Planet_Kai Da das ein Software- und kein Instanzfeature ist, müsstest ihr das unter github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ diskutieren, wir können da nichts dran ändern.

@SirTux Wissen wir aus dem Kopf auch nicht – die Limits werden von der Software gesetzt. Mach vielleicht mal einen Issue auf, dass die Beschränkung in der Fehlermledung erwähnt werden soll?

Hey, the announced maintenance needed a lot more time than planned. We had to upgrade our postgres installation before migrating the database for mastodon v2.5.0 (what was not mentioned in the release notes). The new database migrations are currently running and will need a lot of time too. But this time it should work without interruption. So at the moment it seems that we will finish the upgrade tomorrow morning. But everything should run as normal.

There will be a short downtime for maintenance in the next few minutes.

@darix @leah @rixx We'd prefer not to engage in theoretical problems that are unlikely to become reality. Let's solve problems as they actually arise.

We've opened the invite system again – users on chaos.social can generate invites for their friends at chaos.social/invites

To avoid a suden onslaught on the instance – PLEASE only generate invites for ONE PERSON AT A TIME.
Please don't generate invites that allow many or unlimited people to sign up – slow, organic growth works best for a community instance like ours.

We rephrased our about page at chaos.social/about/more to make sure all rules are understandable and included in a single list. The content hasn't changed and the changeset can be seen here: github.com/chaossocial/about/p
(We also added links to our custom stylesheet repository and our blog while we were at it.)

@ralf No, there isn't, apart from a mention of our server stats in our birthday blog post and some talks. But it's not fancy, most of the time we add some disk space when deleting non-local media doesn't cut it any longer.

@cw @chpietsch Dann ist es eher ein Fall für einen Mastodon-Bugreport oder einen neuen Browser.

@cw @leah Einladungen sind gerade eher schlecht. Gibt ja noch viele Instanzen, die unserer ähnlich sind. Mehr dezentrieren, bitte!
