Jup, looks very good. Seems that this was the cause for some strange problems some users were experiencing since yesterday.

Show thread

Looks like setting the instance to TLS1.3 only yesterday lead to problems with some instances and clients. But not that many to see a clear problem. We reenabled TLS1.2 now. This could mean that there are older toots appearing in your notification.

Due to the increase of new users on other instances and the high activitypub traffic we have some performance issues. We are currently working to fix them.

To everyone who is new on chaos.social or hasn't read them before. Please read our rules: chaos.social/about/more

This is our living room and we want a nice community for everyone here on the instance and on the fediverse. So in the truest sense of the words: be excellent to each other!

⚠️ Hey, it is great that you like chaos.social enough to invite other people her. But please remember to only use single invites and not big or unlimited invite links. Yes this needs a click more but I just disabled over 20 unlimited invites. So if your invite doesn't work, remember this toot. ⚠️

If you used a mail address for sign up, that is connected to a ticket system, please! disable the mail notifications from mastodon or add and exception from the auto bounces. We don't want to know every time someone interacted with you ;)

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! 🥳

And now we are running on mastodon v3.5.1 🥳

More info: blog.joinmastodon.org/2022/03/ and on the Github release page.

We just updated chaos.social to mastodon v3.4.7. There is also the v3.5.0 release now but as this is a very big release, we will wait a few days to fix possible bugs.

We are glad to have you back on fairydust. All systems are nominal.

We also hope you enjoyed your free time without doom scrolling through social media ;)

Now we wish you a pleasant journey.

There was a problem with a broken bootloader that tooks some time but now we are back online. It could take some time for the instance to catch up remote messages.

Short announcement: There will be a short downtime this evening for hardware maintenance.

Admin note:
Please make your CWs descriptive. Communities use them for informed consent, not auto-hiding irrelevant info. If your choice of CW phrasing requires foreknowledge of current events to filter an upsetting topic, it's not serving its purpose.

This comes up a lot, but I'm currently speaking about referring to "Texas" or "politics" without making it clear that you're writing about transphobia. One word CWs are great but they should be the actual warning. If it would be something distressing in itself you can always use a more general warning and provide a specific "TW:..." line within, with more information for too-hasty clickers or user filters.

There will be a short downtime in the next few hours. We need to replace a failing disk.

Short reminder for everybody on chaos.social: We are an instance that is queer, left, tolerant.

Queer-hostile positions, including trolling ("but what about the children", exploiting the tolerance paradox) and right-wing crap are not welcome here. The same goes for general inconsiderateness.

If in doubt, please check the instance rules from time to time, including the section for "best practices": chaos.social/about/more

Thank you for travelling :fairydust:

Kurze Durchsage, als Erinnerung: Wir sind eine Instanz, die sich queer, links, tolerant positioniert.

Queer-feindliche Positionen, inklusive Trollerei („aber was ist mit den Kindern“, Ausnutzen des Toleranz-Paradoxons) und rechter Mist sind hier unerwünscht. Das gilt auch für allgemeine Rücksichtslosigkeit.

Im Zweifel guckt bitte gelegentlich in die Instanzregeln, die auch einen Abschnitt für „Best Practices“ haben: chaos.social/about/more

Thank you for travelling :fairydust:
