Nerdculture upgrade to new Mastodon release v3.4.1
See https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.4.1 for release notes/what has changed...
Nerdculture now runs on newest Mastodon release v3.4.0. There is no change compared to the pre-release.
Please also note that federation is working not as usual, because there were a problem in the last 2 days caused by W3C. You can read more about this here: https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/10254
Nerdculture now runs on Mastodon v3.4.0rc1. see https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.4.0rc1 for details and new features...
I've imported a set of custom emojis... somewhat nerdculture related emojis, like or and many others. You can use those emojis in your profile display name as well.
You can get an overview of the emojis at https://emojos.in/nerdculture.de
As a late Xmas gift, Mastodon v3.3.0 has been released today and Nerdculture has been already updated to that release.
Read the release notes for more information what's new & shiny...
Reboot finished, service should be back to normal...
Dear Nerdculture users,
in this week I will work on the undelying network setup of this server. This means that Nerdculture will be unavailable during that maintenance work.
The downtime might happen multiple times in this week, but I'll try to keep it below 1 hour per period.
When done, I'll inform you again. Stay tuned!
Dear Nerdculture users,
I'll be reorganising the storage backend of this Mastodon instance. The background job of syncing the data is already running, but for the final sync I need to shutdown Mastodon for a while.
When done I hope that all the migration tasks are finally done and no service interruption will be needed again...
Ok, I think I've cleaned up the most issues from last night...
There was a wave of mass registrations this night with tons of spanish speaking toots in the last past 6 hours.
Registrations are now closed and I'll investigate all accounts and eventually suspend/delete most of them.
Please report toots/accounts if they have posted content that is not fulfilling the Terms of Service on this instance or are in other ways problematic...
Upgrade successfully done!
