@christa if you're looking for alternatives and decide down the road to resume a presence in this space, something a bit simpler could be to use the ActivityPub plugin within WordPress. Other things to look at could potentially be Write.as/WriteFreely. At least you're not throwing any more money at Bezos though.

Sorry about any 502s, I reserve the right to upgrade my instance without prior warning.

@christa @christa What's your spend on AWS? Have you looked elsewhere for affordable infrastructure, or for managed hosting such as @mastohost? I don't know if they support Hometown though.

@mastodonusercount Looks like someone's spinning up a big instance right now.

⚠️ An issue has been reported with the `tootctl upgrade storage-schema` command in relation to DigitalOcean Spaces. Avoid executing that for now if you're using Spaces.

Also, a warning has been added to the release notes: You don't need to run that command at all. It would incur data transfer costs to do so as it moves files around.

I'm pitching the Fediverse to the Howie Hawkins / Green Party campaign after hearing about how their Twitter account got suspended.

@felix @melissasage I wouldn't take any confirmation to be official other than an account on state-owned infrastructure (presidencia.gob.ve for instance)

@art Good rain here in Northeast LA. I'll take an entire month of this weather please.

Hmm, is it just me or are a lot of people joining Mastodon right now? Did something happen?

Big spike in new users signing up on mastodon.social - who's moving into the Fediverse today?

Do any public health or mutual aid groups want/need a presence on the fediverse? If you have a domain name and are interested in exploring this space, get in contact with me via instance.community and I'll help you get something up and running
