Is Telegram channel a good way to broadcast server status to you all? 🤔
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.
That would force everyone to have telegram and be willing to share it. Maybe you can just post in a simple page people could manually check
@self Good thought! A plain webpage is probably the best overall, at least for status info, but Telegram would also work. For a simple website, NearlyFreeSpeech.net are good - tiny fees for the page just existing, and very low traffic costs too - drop $20 in your account, and it’ll last a year or two before needing topping up. ^_^ Nice bonus: getting HTTPS set up is easy, thanks to their “does everything” script.
