Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Unlike other social networks, the admins will interact in a friendly way.
A few changes to be aware of now that the instance has been moved.
The server location has also moved from the USA to the EU (in France). This should not ever become an issue, but please be aware that French and EU law is not the same as American law.
All other aspects of the community will remain the same as before.
The move is almost complete.
Some media files may be absent for the next couple of hours as those files transfer over, but all access and feeds should be restored. Uploads should also work.
Please reach out if you have any issues at all.
Downtime to begin in 5 minutes.
The move will commence shortly.
Again, there WILL be some downtime for potentially as long as an hour. If you cannot log in, please try again later.
An update will be posted once all is complete.
🚨⚠️ IMPORTANT NOTICE⚠️ 🚨
This coming weekend the instance is scheduled to transfer to a new server.
This is being done primarily for cost reasons but should also put the long-term future of the community on a more stable footing.
There WILL be some downtime most likely on Saturday and potentially for periods of up to an hour.
You will be able to access the instance as usual once the move is complete.
Updates will be posted when they can.
Please let me know if you have any questions :)
