Hello everyone and welcome to our (many) new users!

Mastodon might take a bit of getting used to but we hope you’ll feel at home very soon.

We work hard to make this instance a safe space for our users. If you see something that doesn’t look right you can use the ‘report’ facility to let our moderation team know.

Happy tooting! ☺️

mastodon.scot stands with Ukraine.

Content supporting the gross violation of international law by the Russian Federation is not welcome here, and will be moderated accordingly.

As this position is effectively a change to our published rules, users who are uncomfortable with this stance are welcome to migrate their account to another instance. Documentation on that process is here:

Hi there! We've just upgraded the instance to v3.4.6 which fixes a critical vulnerability. More details here:

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/r

Happy (safer) tooting!

⚠️ We are planning to release important security fixes for #Mastodon on February 3rd, between 13:00 and 15:00 UTC.

To make sure that most servers can upgrade swiftly, we will release the fixes both as v3.3.2 and v3.4.6 (they will, of course, be also available on the main branch).

To make sure the upgrades on those older versions require the least intervention, with just a process restart, we have just released preparatory releases v3.3.1 and v3.4.5.

Please upgrade!

Hello everyone! We've just updated this instance to v3.4.5 which is a preparatory update for an upcoming critical security fix. More details here:

Have a great day! 🙂

Just a reminder that we need your help to keep this instance a happy and safe place for our users 🙂 If you see spam or any content that breaks our instance rules then hit that 'report' button. Reporting helps our moderator team find content that shouldn't be on here and act on it quickly. Thanks!

Thanks to those who made donations to our running costs over the holidays. Your help is much appreciated!

Hello everyone! It's the 1st of June and time to do something we haven't done in a while...

This instance has always been and always will be free to use. It's run by a private individual and paid for out of their own pocket.

mastodon.scot currently costs around GBP20/month to run.

If you'd like to donate (and please, only donate if you want to and can afford it), details are here:

Thank you! 🙂

I love the smell of upgrades in the morning...

@FediFollows @trumpet@mas.to So in theory mastodon.scot, which is on the same subnet, should also have the same issue.

Hi everyone, the issues with our object storage provider appear to be resolved and everything is back to normal (although the fix we implemented earlier seemed to work anyway).
