Hello everyone 👋 We have a lot of new users, so, welcome!
Just a head up that this instance is moderated by a team who are fairly progressive, and who enforce our rules. If you see something breaking the Code of Conduct, please use the report feature. You can find the rules here: https://mastodon.technology/about/more
Thank you and take care!
All done! Thank you 🙏
We have added language to our Code of Conduct to make this explicit: stalking, harassment, hate speech, or doxing is not allowed, even if you do it on other instances (or even other social media platforms).
Basically, if you’re an asshole elsewhere but you’re nice on m.t, then you’re still and asshole and will be told to leave. Reach out to @ashfurrow with any questions.

Have a good day, stay safe, take care 💜
We’re running a database backup now, when it finishes we will take the instance down.
Latency is returning to normal. Low-priority tasks are still an hour behind, which can affect things like search indexing. But normal posting should work as expected again.
We’re still experiencing problems and are actively tweaking server configs. Expect slower performance and intermittent downtime throughout the day.
Latency continues to be lengthy, but it is decreasing. We've made changes to our Postgres configuration to help. (We have further changes planned.)
"Latency" in this case is the time it takes for Sidekiq background jobs to go from enqueued to completed. It's currently at ~20 minutes, so (for example) if someone posts a toot it takes 20 minutes to show up in your feed. Not ideal.
Thank you for your patience while we further scale up this instance ✌️
Sorry for the un-announced reboot everyone. We try to keep those to a minimum.
We've made further tweaks to our server concurrency/resource utilization, to try improving the poor latency we've seen today.
Okay all done!
Restart completed. We're monitoring now.
