Errors/slowness sharing media right now are caused by service issues at our cloud storage provider: status.wasabi.com

Re: theverge.com/2019/7/12/2069195: this site has already blocked federation with Gab. Please continue to report any content that violates our site rules (a2mi.social/about/more) to a2mi.social moderators.

A proactive reminder that status.a2mi.social exists to provide information if this site goes down for some reason.

The site has been upgraded to Mastodon 2.9, which has a new single-column interface option: blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/06/

@george @dzombak okay, Keybase replied that they added a2mi.social and it should work now. Can you try it & report back?

@george @dzombak hmm, I though just updating Mastodon was enough but it looks like I need to contact Keybase too. I'll shoot them an email.

The server has been updated to Mastodon v2.7.1. (This is the reason for the quick tutorial you'll see when you first visit the website after this upgrade.)

Breakdown of current monthly costs:

Server: $10
Backups: $2
Media storage: $1-$2
Domain name: $10 yearly = ~$1/month

The site costs ~$14 per month to run.

In total thus far, this site has cost ~$90 to run, and I've received $98 in donations from many of you. Thank you for your support!

If you're enjoying this community, please consider sending a couple bucks to keep the site running into February and beyond: a2mi.social/about/more

(And let me know if you'd prefer for me *not* to thank you publicly for the contribution.)

New status page: status.a2mi.social , which I'll update if there are issues which make this site inaccessible.

@Erich we'll see who replies with interest! I'll keep you in mind.

Next up: we'd like to add a moderator who's *not* Another Tech Guy. Anyone interested?

The feedback I got on the draft code of conduct was all positive, so it's now official: a2mi.social/about/more

A big advantage of Mastodon is the ability communities have to set and enforce a code of acceptable content. To that end, I've always planned to write one for this site.

As a starting point, what do you think about gist.github.com/cdzombak/f56d6 ? It's basically the same as the CoC on the original & largest Mastodon site (mastodon.social/about/more), plus encouragement to use content tags.
