Dear users on https://nerdculture.de,
this is the new account that will be used to spread information regarding the server itself, like upgrades, issues, maintenance, etc...
So please keep this account in your contact list.
PS: Welcome to all new users!
Some technical details:
6 Core Xeon, 128 GB RAM, 4x 2 TB HDD RAID10
2x 14 Core, 256 GB RAM, 4x 1 TB NVMe RAID10 , 4x 4 TB SSD ZFS RAID10, 2x 18 TB HDD RAID1
Approx. 2.5 TB via 1 Gbit/s MAN network between Duesseldorf & Dortmund, Germany with up to 120 MB/s
maintenance has been finished and all virtual machines are now running on the new server.
You may experience faster page load times.
If you experience any errors, please report on https://support.windfluechter.net/
If someone from the newly registered users are missing friends that tried to registered here as well:
it might be that they are using Google Mail as their mail backend, be it directly or as a forwarding destination.
This doesn't work and Google is refusing our mails and I won't invest any time trying to debug this mess of Google. Complain to them.
Thanks for your understanding.
Dear new users,
welcome to the Fediverse! Take your time and get familiar with how the Fediverse is working.
But one thing:
This server is intended for German & English speaking people.
But relax! I will not enforce this policy until migration of accounts is working again. It is currently broken in v3.5.1 of Mastodon.
Of course this service is free of cost to use - but it is not free of cost to operate and to offer it to you.
Supporting this service voluntarily by some small amount of money helps to provide this service as it is now.
Please remember that the #fediverse mostly consists of people that are committing their spare time and personal money to provide others with a free service.
On Twitter, on the other hand, you have adds and your data is being sold to other company. But not here.
A very warm welcome to all new users!
Please also follow the server rules as I already needed to suspend a few users.
If you enjoy being here, please also consider supporting us with some money. You can see our server costs over here:
... and you can support us via LiberaPay here:
(IBAN on request)
Side note: when logging out & in again I needed to enter a security code sent to my mail address .
So be sure to have a valid & working mail address in your account settings!
This is a ToS thing anyway on this instance.
Just upgraded to new Mastodon release v3.5.0 - you can read what's hot & new here ->
Es sollten nun weitere Zahlungsmoeglichkeiten fuer eine Spende verfuegbar sein und nicht nur Paypal, zum Beispiel Kreditkarte/EC-Karte oder Banküberweisung (in Europa)
There should be now more paying options other than Paypal available, eg. credit/debit card or bank transfer in Europe.
