We gonna update the instance to Hometown v1.0.5+3.20 this evening around 20:00 CEST.

We dont expext much downtime, but it could be up to 30 minutes.

It's finally done!

We had some issues with the custom them not being recognised anymore and the poor Mastodon documentation where some precious infos disappeared (we had to search web.archive.org to find something useful: web.archive.org/web/2019051323).

Anyway, we are now running Hometown v1.0.4+3.1.5, enjoy!

Hello there!

We are going to migrate the instance from mainline to the fork.

The instance's gonna be offline from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

What time of the day (CEST) do you prefer? It'll be done in the following days.


We just upgraded the instance to Mastodon v3.1.4, here is the list of changes since the previous version: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Good day!

Here we are, everything looks good so far. Give the instance some time to catch up all the missed toots!

We are going to migrate the instance away from today, we're expecting some downtime.

No more than an hour if everything goes as planned. We'll inform you as soon as we know when we'll need to shutdown the instance.

Stay tuned!

We are AGAIN experiencing issues with our storage system. We reached out to the provider and are waiting for them to resolve this.

In the meantime we are discussing migration plans with @kyzh to ensure better availability.

We'll keep you updated!

Sorry again for the huge delay for fixing this problem. Everything is running smooth now.

If you encounter some strange stuff don't hesitate to reach us directly!

It looks like the storage issue has finally been fixed!

Please bear with us, performances will be a little bit degraded next hours for the instance to catch up old medias.

Show thread


As of today the issue isn't resolved, we finally had confirmation that's related to the following issue: status.scaleway.com/incident/7

We are sorry for the annoyance and will keep you informed.

This evening, 20:00 CEST (UTC/GMT +02:00), we'll be upgrading the server to the last Mastodon version published yesterday: v3.1.3

We also gonna reboot the server, for a bit of system maintenance.

Huuuh, seems we can't upload medias right now.

Give us 10min to fix that!

Ekkk, this took ages!
Sorry for the delay, we were offline for a while.

Everything is fine now, we'll probably need some minutes to catch up with other instances and rebuild feeds. Expect some strange content in your timelines (post in wrong chronological order), which will be fixed.

Nevermind, we just got the access we needed! We are gonna start anytime soon, see you in a few hours!
