Upgrade to 2.5.0 went sideways. We're on it...

kosmos.social notice 

We just upgraded kosmos.social to the latest security release of Mastodon (v2.4.4).

If you read this, then please enjoy the warm fuzzy feeling of having your fediverse account serviced by someone who doesn't sell you to advertisers in return. ✊

Have a nice Sunday!

We have experienced some downtime again today, due to network issues in our provider's data center. Again, if your timelines are not up to date, they should update within the next few minutes.

It seems that a planned router replacement yesterday led to some unintended problems. Meaning we may see more connection failures until they're on top of the situation. Please be patient, we cannot do much about this ourselves! Thanks and sorry.

kosmos.social notice 

We had a small hickup, resulting in timelines not having updated for an hour or so. Everything solved and if your timelines are still a bit stale, they'll update within the next few minutes. Sorry about that.

We're closing registrations for a while, due to spambots invading the instance recently. If someone you know is looking for an instance, you can ping us for invites.

Hopefully this is just a temporary measure. Thanks for understanding.

Kosmos boosted

kosmos.social update notice 

We're on Mastodon 2.4.3 now. Notable new feature: fancy new filters for all your timelines. Check out kosmos.social/filters to set your own.

Full changelog: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

kosmos.social upgrade notice 

Good news, everyone! We're on Mastodon v2.4.2 now. It contains major improvements for language filtering and detection. Head to kosmos.social/settings/prefere to set both the default language for your own toots (helps with false detection of very short posts), as well as the languages you'd like to see in your timeline.

kosmos.social upgrade news 

We just upgraded kosmos.social from Mastodon 2.4.0 to version 2.4.1.

Most notable new feature is delete & redraft: "If you noticed a typo or missing word on a toot that's already been sent, you can now choose to "delete & redraft" that toot. It pre-fills the compose area with all the data from your toot, including attached files, allowing you to edit and re-send it. It becomes a new toot, so boosts, favourites and replies to it will be reset."

The fediverse is still growing steadily. We're now federating with 1620 other instances. 🚀

One notable new feature is that you can add up to 4 different label/value pairs of extra information to your profile. Check out kosmos.social/settings/profile to add yours.

Maintenance/upgrade done 

Aaand we're on Mastodon 2.4.0. There are too many features and fixes to pack in one toot, so please check out the changelog, if you're interested: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Maintenance/upgrade imminent 

We're upgrading kosmos.social to the latest version of Mastodon within the next half hour. There might be hickups, or not. Fingers crossed.

Our server was down for around 45 minutes, due to a power supply issue at our hosting provider. We are now back, we are sorry about the downtime

Regarding the timeline hickups: everything is back to normal. Thanks to @gregkare for jumping in and helping out.

Still having some trouble. We're investigating...

We're terribly sorry for home timelines not having updated for the last 11 hours. Our database connection pool got overloaded somehow, and we didn't notice. Timelines are being rebuilt as we speak, and you should see new toots coming in, either already or very soon.

Thanks to @rburns for the report!
