I've just updated chaos.social to mastodon v.2.4.0 :) πŸŽ‰

We have a serious influx of spammers, so we're closing registrations until further notice, as both our administrators are currently busy. Once they have the time to look at solutions, we may open registrations again.

🚨 Thank you for your feedback. Since the general mood was positive, we have decided to adopt the policy change (github.com/chaossocial/about/p).

So, if you have a bot on chaos.social, we'd like to ask you to make its posts unlisted.
If you're using a crossposter, please make at the very least all posts unlisted that contain retweets or broken twitter mentions ("foo@twitter.com").

Unlisted posts are still accessible to both followers and non-followers, they just don't show up on the local timeline.

🚨 We want to introduce a new rule asking people here on chaos.social to keep automated posts (mostly bots and broken crossposts) unlisted, meaning the posts are public, but don't show up on the local timeline: github.com/chaossocial/about/p
Please let us know your thoughts. :fairydust:

@Ambassador This bot tries to follow protected accounts, and when they reject the follow request, it tries to follow them again after some days. This is spammy behaviour, please stop.

Wow, after our blog post for our first year anniversary you've filled our needs on liberapay! Thanks to all of you β™₯️ We also increased the needs a little to get some room for future hardware improvements.

[en] It's our birthday! πŸŽ‚ One year ago, chaos.social opened registrations. @leah and @rixx have written up how the instance has developed during that year: blog.chaos.social/2018/04/15/o

[de] Wir haben Geburtstag! πŸŽ‚ Vor einem Jahr hat chaos.social die TΓΌren geΓΆffnet. @leah und @rixx haben mal aufgeschrieben, was in dem Jahr passiert ist: blog.chaos.social/2018/04/15/e

We updated our instance description and About section with clearer sentences and explanations (minor changes). We also added spamming to the explicitly listed offenses. See all changes here: github.com/chaossocial/about/c

Very sad to hear that witches.town is shutting down at the end of April. If you search a new nice place for queer, feminists, anarchists or related stuff your are always welcome on chaos.social.

I've just updated chaos.social to the newest mastodon release v2.3.1. You could find the release notes here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

We'd like to thank @blinry for this instance's new favicon! You can find high resolution/SVG versions over here: github.com/chaossocial/custom/

(If you're on Firefox, you might need to visit chaos.social/favicon.ico, hit Ctrl-F5, and maybe restart your browser after that to see the change.)

We are now running on Mastodon v2.1.0 \o/

If you want to know what is new you can find the release notes here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

As of Friday, this instance has over 1000 users – let's say "welcome" to our latest arrivals!

We blocked (suspended) federation with preteengirls.biz because it's exactly what it sounds like. It's also been added to our list of blocked instances: github.com/chaossocial/about/b

And now we are also back with our old custom styles. :)

After a lot of database migrations we now run mastodon v.2.0.0 at chaos.social. You could find the release notes at: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

There is currently a problem with our custom styles because of some changes but we'll have a look into this tomorrow.

It seems like we could mitigate the problem with another reboot of the server running this instance. But we will monitor this issue for the next few hours.
