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. #mastoadmin
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. #mastoadmin
To everyone who is new on chaos.social or hasn't read them before. Please read our rules: https://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. ⚠️ #announcement #mastoadmin
And now we are running on mastodon v3.5.1 🥳 #mastoadmin
More info: https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2022/03/mastodon-3.5/ and on the Github release page.
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.
Short announcement: There will be a short downtime this evening for hardware maintenance. #mastoadmin
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. #mastoadmin
We have updated our instance rules. Please have a look at the change: https://github.com/chaossocial/about/commit/d84a6b4dcf778e1d8442e834d8af0f199ef48e65
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": https://chaos.social/about/more
Thank you for travelling
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: https://chaos.social/about/more
