@Gargron - how does deal with dead servers/domains? are they automatically removed and when?

More than 50% failed when doing tootctl domains crawl:

Visited 14717 domains, 8168 failed (1261s elapsed)
Total servers: 3272
Total registered: 2178829
Total active last week: 171691
Total joined last week: 14648

Are those failed automatically purged from my instance or do I need to verify each and every domains and delete it with tootctl domains purge?

When doing a tootctl domains crawl I get many red dots, like 50% or so.
I think this means that those instances/domains are not reachable anymore, i.e. dead.

As a developer or designer you’re sitting in front of the fucking computer all day every day—IMO it is self-care to get the best thing possible.

- Get a really fast computer so you get shit done quicker.
- Get a really good monitor so you minimize eye strain
- Get a good mechanical keyboard so typing is a joy, not a chore
- Get an ergonomic desk and chair
- Get the best quality, life is too short for crappy tools

How many diskspace do other instances use?

9.9G public/system/accounts
606M public/system/custom_emojis
19G public/system/media_attachments
9.9G public/system/preview_cards

... but it just removes very few files:

Removed 1248 media attachments (approx. 585 MB)

After running "bundle install" and "yarn install" tootctl media remove is working again, but how can this happen?

Hmmm, ...

RAILS_ENV=production live/bin/tootctl media remove

fails with

/home/mastodon/live/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.5.0/gems/redis-4.1.0/lib/redis/client.rb:124:in `call': NOAUTH Authentication required. (Redis::CommandError)

There is a password configured in .env.production for , but apparently this doesn't work for some unknown reasons. Yet the still fills up more and more...

So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)

This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

Hab heute für einen Eklat gesorgt. Könnte gut sein, dass mein Stuhl wackelt und ich demnächst einen Job suche. Hab im Tabakkonzernprojekt ein kleines Feature eingebaut und präsentiert, das neben Sales- und Marketingzahlen auch den deathtoll hochgerechnet. So kann jeder neben der Kampagneneffizienz auch die Mortalität der Kunden sehen, Individuell auf salesrep runtergebrochen damit sich keiner aus der Verantwortung stehlen kann, man sei nur ein kleines Rädchen. Kam eher schlecht an.


Just suspended like 100 spam accounts on this instances.

How do other instance admins do handle this kind of register-account-and-spam-everyone problem?

Seeking contact to experienced and developers. I want to get a feature like into the 's core to boost . I'm esp. interested in how "early" in the stack IP-addresses can be anonymized to avoid logging by reverse-proxied/upstream systems.

I am an experienced developer myself, but not so much in C and don't have contact to these communities. Of course I would could provide some draft.
