Pinned toot

Hey guys, I set up 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! 😊

Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.

In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.

The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.

In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"

Here’s a survey about titles that should only take 3 minutes or so, for literally anyone who speaks English:

It’ll end at noon UK time on Sunday 13th January 2019 at the soonest.

Every survey response, RT and boost is really helpful! Thank you. :)

Although I am not actively tooting or reading toots, I handle reports almost instantly (except when I'm sleeping 😜). So just a reminder, please don't hesitate to report any offensive toots/instances.

I do apologise for not able to proactively monitor all the toots.

Thanks to all of you who actively report offensive toots, very kind and helpful of you! :heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: Sorry for the slight downtime. We are back up. Disk space was fully occupied too quickly. Media older than 14 days will be cleared in the background.

LB new friends and especially new Tumblr transplant friends, I know you're used to the blue hell where everyone posts upsetting 50 million words long politics posts full of upsetting photos untagged constantly, but thank fuck, Mastodon culture is to... try not to do that

"politics" "uspol" "eupol" "ukpol" "upsetting" etc all good CWs

Did you need a new social network to migrate to after a certain network made a few poor decisions yesterday (*cough* #tumblr *cough*)? Well... Welcome to Mastodon! πŸ˜„πŸ€–πŸ”₯

And if you’re using an iOS device, I’m sure you’ll want a beautiful app to browse on - #Mast is a great contender!

Don’t just take my word for it, it is now #3 top social networking apps on the App Store! πŸŽ‰

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.

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

Just saw there's a new app for Mastodon on iOS called Mast, looks interesting

: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:

And, don't forget to subscribe to our status page for any future alerts:

: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 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 which you can subscribe to, to get latest updates.
