“I’m just joking” - a very irresponsible phrase

:lgbt_io: Enjoy Mastodon v3.1.2 (especially the Bookmarks) 😉 :heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: Our will be shut down for backups, server updates and Mastodon version upgrade in about two hours counting from the time of this toot.

:lgbt_io: We will be updating our instance to the latest Mastodon version within the next 36 hours. Will try to minimise downtime during this update. Apologies for the delay!

:heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: Apology for the downtime, I did not notice it until I was off work. I'm unsure why it happened but it has something to do with Redis failing. But we are back.

:lgbt_io: Effective immediately, everything crossposted from Twitter to our LGBT.io must be set to "Followers-only".

Thank you.

Next release of Mastodon will allow admins to post important announcements to their users, and yes, those are reactions

:lgbt_io: Now that we can create categories for custom emojis, I will be categorising them and add more custom emojis (including those from MutantStandard emojis) gradually. :heart_pride:

:lgbt_io: Our instance is now v3.0.1. Sorry for the delay!

:lgbt_io: I will upgrade our instance to v3.0.0 or latest this coming Sunday (it can happen at any time).

Kindly expect some downtime on that day. Thank you. :)

Why do people only listen to story from one side and decided that THAT IS the true story?

I never did an that I can remember so here we go

Hello! I'm a trans lesbian who enjoys reading, blogging, board games, and tinkering with interesting tech things. I mostly toot about Gender Stuff but every now and then I branch out into some of my other interests. I live in upstate New York with my wife and two cats.

Mastodon in general and this server specifically have been really welcoming and great, and I'm glad to be part of the community.

:lgbt_io:​ Thanks all for boosting. <3 I've received a reply from the chatroom owner explaining that linking the chatroom to our site was just meant to be a recommendation rather than association, and it appears that the trolls have been banned from the Riot.im chatroom. :)

:lgbt_io: It was brought to my attention that there's a Matrix/Riot.im LGBT chatroom (filled with homophobic messages) has linked itself to our website lgbt.io.

A Masto user and myself have contacted the owner of the chatroom (appeared to be "thekyriarchy") but no response so far.

I'm not entirely sure if this is a pure mistake or a troll to our site.

So, can you all kindly help boosting this toot and hopefully some people might come forward with more info or ways to contact the chatroom owner?

Thank you very much!
