Pinned toot

Hey guys, I set up forums.lgbt.io and see if anyone likes to join and help shaping the forum community. :) I welcome feedback, especially on the forum sub-sections. And I hope you'll like the theme that I customised from a paid theme. Any feedback would be much appreciated! 😊

Happy Friday, Mastodonia. πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ

s/o to everyone just come over from Tumblr! I promise we're friendly. Things to know:

* Content warnings are your friend! Important for nsfw stuff.
* Reporting someone works! We have real mods.
* It is okay to not be very good at this! We know masto has a learning curve.

We're glad you're here πŸ’™

Welcome those new from tumblr.

Remember Content Warnings help keep this place a safe environment.

If you see a toot that might not belong here even if it is from another instance feel free to report it so either me, or @self can do something.

Enjoy your tooting.

no wonder all these people like slime so much it has smile right in it's name

Psychologically, why do people tend to control others? There are two control freaks in my own family, trying to control what I do and what I say in my entire life..

Cleared remote media that are older than 30 days, feeling great to see used disk space reduced by a big chunk πŸ˜…

Toot 1.1 is finally out! It is, as usual, available on the App Store.

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

If you have it already, you should see an update soon!

:lgbt_io: Everything is back to normal. We are on the latest version - v2.6.1. Thank you for your patience. :heart_pride:

If you're interested, have a look at the releases to know what's new: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

And, don't forget to subscribe to our status page for any future alerts: exana.io/s/o0a8u6gqz5pz23pg/pu

:lgbt_io: I have bumped up our instance version to v2.5.2 now, will proceed with the upgrade to v2.6.1 (latest) in the background.

Customisations will be reapplied last.

At the meantime, do subscribe to our status page at exana.io/s/o0a8u6gqz5pz23pg/pu so that you're not lost during any downtime.

Sorry for the prolonged downtime!

:lgbt_io: Instance is still not upgraded due to the prolonged backup process (worst of all it cannot be cancelled!). You'll be able to toot and read toots, but there's going to be downtime now and then for the next 24 hours. Please bear with me.

I have set up a status page at exana.io/s/o0a8u6gqz5pz23pg/pu which you can subscribe to, to get latest updates.

:lgbt_io: Server will be taken down for upgrade process in an hour (counting from this toot).

Or maybe set up something like Status Page (I can try looking for alternative free solutions)?

:lgbt_io: Is Telegram channel a good way to broadcast server status to you all? πŸ€”

I find it tough to communicate with our instance members whenever there's server downtime or when the instance upgrade took more than it should.

:lgbt_io: Hi fellow members, I will be performing the upgrade within 24 hours, counting from the time of this toot. Thank you for waiting such a long time! πŸ’Ÿ

:lgbt_io: Please bear with me a few more days and I will upgrade our instance to the latest version! :heart_pride:

Good morning Mastodonia! Take care of yourselves and each other. :heart_pride:

It's okay if you failed today. You can try again tomorrow.

Let's try to stay positive today.

It can be hard, but it's worth it to try.
