Oh hullo there!

We've upgraded to v3.1.1 of Mastodon which resolves a minor dependency issue in v3.1.0

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Hello everyone! We run mastodon.scot as a free service because we love Mastodon and the fediverse, but it costs us money! Once a month we reach out with an appeal to our users for donations to help with our running costs. Even small donations are a great help, and all donations are very much appreciated!

Hello! We've upgraded to Mastodon v3.1.0rc2 which fixes the thing that confused us when upgrading to v3.1.0rc1 yesterday.

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

🎉 First release candidate for #Mastodon 3.1.0 is out for testing:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

There are security-related fixes, improvements of admin functions like search by IP, announcements, bookmarks, and more.

We're now updated to the latest version of Mastodon, v3.1.0rc1

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

The upgrade took longer than expected because of this issue:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

So actually most of the 1hr+ taken to upgrade was me scratching my head, rather than anything that slowed down or interrupted the server 😉

Ok folks, that's our maintenance finished (19:50 GMT 28/01/2020). It took longer than expected but should have only caused brief intermittent slowdowns.

Hi everyone, there might be some brief slowdowns or service interruptions for a short while as we're carrying out some maintenance (18:30 GMT 28/01/2020)

A couple of minutes of downtime there while we performed essential system maintenance. Thanks for your patience!

Not on Mastodon.scot but recently investigated running costs of an instance so PayPal donation made!

I'd encourage others who have moved from Twitter to make a small donation 😊👍

Hi everyone! We run a monthly fundraiser on our other instance and now mastodon.scot is busier we'll do it here too.

We pay for the costs of running mastodon.scot ourselves and are more than happy to do so! But of course if any of our users would like to contribute even that would make our lives easier 🙂

You can donate towards our running costs by PayPal:

paypal.me/mysteryvortex

or by Bitcoin:

Every little helps. Thank you!

Echoing that toot from @Gargron that I just boosted, the same applies here at mastodon.scot. Please be mindful of the instance rules, and if you don’t feel they’re right for you remember that there are thousands of other instances, or you can start your own. That’s the beauty of the fediverse!

Welcome to Mastodon, and mastodon.social specifically! Please be mindful of the code of conduct you agreed to when you signed up.

If for whatever reason you disagree with the rules on mastodon.social, Mastodon offers you a selection of 2,000+ other servers and the ability to start your own.

Cheers!

Merry Christmas everyone! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
