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...

Dear Nerdculture users,

sorry for the downtime, but I felt like moving the Mastodon installation from the old virtual machine to a larger virtual machine would be a good idea.
Sadly that took a little longer than expected, but it seems to work now...

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...

Thanks!

FYI: since as of a few hours (like 2 hrs or so) Nerdculture.de has been upgraded to Mastodon v.3.1.2 to fix an important security issue.

If you still see 3.1.1 on your screen, reload the page/restart your app.

A new Mastodon release is out.

This means that this server will be upgraded in about 1-2 hours as well. Expect some downtimes and cross your finger that everything will work smooth during upgrade! 🙂

There will be a short server outage starting at 13:00 CET to apply some security updates.
