I asked someone to plug back my Raspberry Pi in France, so @usercount is back!

We have now fully migrated to the new storage provider. Let me know if you have any issue!

Mastodon does not rely on ads or sell your data. If you want to help cover the operating costs, you can here:


It is true there is no Twitter style verification on Mastodon. However, you can link to another website with which you have edit rights. If you create a mutual rel="me" link from Mastodon Preferences to that other website, you will get a green tick on your profile page, like this:

It doesn't prove anything about you other than you have access to a Mastodon account, and also have access to the other website, but that does have value.

If you want me to add an emoji please sent me the transparent version with the desired name.

There is no verified account on Mastodon.

@rofllover @admin verifies nobodies account. You do it yourself by adding the custom emoji to your profile. It's all fake and means nothing. Verification is a lie.

We're currently moving to another object storage provider (for images). The new one is currently in use and all files have been transferred but some recent files can be missing (syncing 1.5m files takes many hours so a delta is created).
This should be fixed during the next hours.

I am running out of words in happiness becuase most of them from India are flocking towards #fediverse as a sign of protest against the bird site.

Welcome to fediverse you all. Damn we have been waiting for you people so so long. Events after events we people from Free Software Movement of India were giving lecture and demo about decentralized web, peer to peer, etc and all it took was one move by Twitter. Thanks Twitter.

Fediverse is a open garden. Find your place. Go explore. Also beware there are dark places too where anti social elements like fascists and pro hindutuva breeds. I don't want to mention the name of that instance and give an unwanted attention to them. But beware and you can mute their posts if you don't want to hear them.

Looks like #twitter bans a lot of people from #india ...

Welcome to #mastodon and here comes a quick video to get you started on what this place is and how it's different from other #gafam platforms.

A lot of (legit, non-spam) new people are signing up, so I disabled the approval requirement in order to not make them wait. FYI.

I heard Mastodon is becoming popular in India now, that is great news. Welcome everyone

Hello everyone I'm currently in Japan (pinch me please) so I won't be able to take care of the instance for the next 3 days. Thank you for your understanding!

Sidekiq is really lagging behind now but it's progressively processing jobs...
