I will be starting the update of Mastodon servers hosted in Masto.host to v3.0.1
This will cause a ~15 second downtime.
This new version brings some fixes and adds the ability to auto-approve trending hashtags.
You can read the release notes here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.0.1
And it's finished!
Everyone hosted on Masto.host is now running v3.0.0 😅
There is still an issue that is breaking the new audio player waveform but I will be working on fixing that tomorrow. The audio player works but it just doesn't display the new pretty audio wave.
Any other issues, please let me know.
Mastodon v3.0.0 is out 🎉
There are a lot of new features, changes and fixes. You can read it all here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.0.0
I will be starting the upgrade for every instance on Masto.host and expect that during the upgrade there will be around a minute of downtime.
The new koyu.space stickers are now in stock.
There was a downtime on the service due to my hosting provider (OVH) doing maintenance on the vRack.
All services should be back to normal now.
Sorry about the trouble and please let me know if you are still experiencing any issues.
Just a quick note here: koyu.space will be shutdown at 0am CEST. See https://koyu.space/@announcements/102803349674464918 for more info.
#Gab's Scamming Users for "Pro" Features
#Gab "Pro" features they push Gabbers to pay subscriptions for:
1. Things all other Mastodon instances offer for free but they put behind a corporate pay wall.
2. Avoiding Gab corporate sponsored ads (I guess that is a new "feature" -- which all other Fediverse instances are free from with no cost.
3. Things that I don't see an use case for (who is really limited by 8 MB image sizes and NEEDS to pay monthly for 50MB limits for an image?
On September 20 we will shut down koyu.space for a big #fridays4future event as a form of protest. In the meantime we will redirect to a site listed with a location near you in Germany where you can become active yourself and protest along. koyu.space runs on 100% green energy already and we want to continuously let it be that way.
We published our design sheet so if you want to design something for koyu.space, here's the recipe: https://web.koyu.space/uploads/designsheet.pdf 🎨
Since koyu.space is a relatively small instance there is not a big attack surface than on mastodon.social as this was actually happening. Hackers used breached password databases to get into some older inactive mastodon.social accounts. But still, do yourself a favour and care about your account security as we are limited in helping you.
That's actually all I wanted to say.
koyu.space recommends you using strong passwords and two factor authentication which can be enabled in Preferences > Account > Two-factor Auth. If you use the same passwords across different websites you are at higher risk getting your account hacked from a data breach. Of course we will disable your login if we detect that your account might have been hacked and send you an e-mail on how to get your account back.
