:awesome: I've fixed the Linode DNS issue by using another DNS provider... take that Linode

I've also upgraded aus.social to the recently (5 hours ago) updated version of Mastodon... So we're now on v3.5.3 that includes a bunch of security and performance fixes!

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/r

Have a nice day, everything else should be back to normal :BlobHajMlem:

:goose_honk: Something is broken on the internet.

The Linode DNS seems to be having problems, which might cause a problem uploading images!.... I've started to investigate if there is something I can do.

:goose_honk: :sickos2: NOTICE:

I'm doing some maintenance on the server tonight... later tonight (around midnight), you might notice media is broken, but that should fix itself sooner than later a few hours later :vibing:

:binchicken: Upgraded aus.social to the latest release.

The biggest change is renaming the "direct messages" to "mentioned people only"... because REAL direct messages will be added back in the future. :Bunchie:

:goose_honk: :sickos2: I'm going to reboot the server now. Adding additional memory and CPU.

BRB in 10 minutes

:mastodondance2: Good afternoon, Please remember to add Content Warnings early, Content Warnings often. :goose_hacker: :goose_honk:

:democracysausage: posting without a CW, you better be sure that's a paddling.

It's not a crime to be horny on main, but the local timeline is not a place for exhibitionism! Please mark your content as sensitive, with a content warning!

or you'll get moderated away.

:leftsharkdance: I'm upgrading the server tonight. I've had a few hours of downtime in the last 3 and a bit years. So hopefully I only add a few additional minutes to my total tonight. :awesome:

As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.

Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.

While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.

Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!

:flipturt: :rollbear: Hello everybody, normally I would boost the and posts, but because we're got a hundred of them today, I'll ask you to keep an eye on those hashtags.

It's a fun ride. :coolstorybob:
