I've fixed a configuration problem which previously prevented image or video uploads of over 8 MB.

Now, videos up to 40MB are supported. (Other limits: no larger than 1920x1200px and no greater than 60 fps).

Images up to 10MB should also be supported.

Running some software updates; the site may experience some availability blips over the next short while.

We're considering starting a Patreon for a2mi.social and possibly expanding into offering Instagram and YouTube alternatives.

a2mi.social currently costs $22/month to operate. This covers application servers, file storage, backups, the domain, and email sending.

Contributions made so far are enough to keep the site online through June of this year, assuming costs stay roughly the same.

Thank you to everyone who's contributed thus far!
