We've just updated our instance and are launching a small blog to keep you updated about the new stuff!

New people, welcome to Mastodon and the Fediverse!

Here's how to get started:

1. Find some people to follow over on @FediFollows, and through Trunk (communitywiki.org/trunk)

2. Find out your Mastodon/Fediverse address so you can share it with friends (mstdn.social/@feditips/1072482)

3. Invite people to join you on here by telling them to go to joinmastodon.org and click on "Get Started". It doesn't matter if they join a different server because the servers talk to each other (here's a bit more of an explanation mstdn.social/@feditips/1070214)

4. Find out what the Fediverse is (mstdn.social/@feditips/1070440)

5. Find out why Mastodon being on so many different servers/instances is a really good thing (mstdn.social/@feditips/1070837)

6. If you see anything nasty, you can report it to your friendly server admin (mstdn.social/@feditips/1065401)

7. You can (sort of) verify your account if you own a website (mstdn.social/@feditips/1062741)

If you have any questions, @ me or DM me!

Now running on our new (also cheaper and better) server, Lucy.

POLL: Name the new server 

So I need to give a name to the upcoming im-in.space server.
We've used Space Core and Rosetta so far.

I've picked 4 options:

  • IKAROS - A spacecraft launched in 2010 who had a fly by of Venus and uses solar sailing as a main propulsion. Also a waifu.
  • Juno - Launched in 2011, the spacecraft's mission is to investigate Jupiter and is still in operation and bringing new discoveries.
  • Lucy - Cute name, a spacecraft launched in October 2021 and currently on a 12 years journey to visit 8 asteroids.
  • Rosalind - This time it's a rover, Rosalind Franklin, which is named after the British DNA pioneer. Launch is expected in September this year and it should land on Mars in June 2023.

Network maintenance [3 hours] 

We just got a heads up from our server provider that a network maintenance will start on May 9th, 2019 at 0300Z and will last for 3 hours.

0300Z in your timezone: bit.ly/2Y2HVDY

Details: status.scaleway.com/incident/3

For 2.5 hours this April 15th (between 4am and 6:30am UTC) the server was unable to reach the Internet but was still able to receive requests.
Sorry for the inconvenience, all actions to other instance were put on hold until I restarted the network card.

SSL issues on the Pleroma instance were fixed.
Guess we forgot 4 important lines in the web server config. :notlikemiya:

im-in.space moderation 

We've updated our suspended users and instances for Mastodon: im-in-space.github.io/blocking


The datacenter where our server is hosted suffered a network outage. It was impossible to reach im-in.space for 50-55 minutes on IPv4.

im-in.space's Mastodon and Pleroma updates 

Recent stuff we've done~
- IPv6 is now working!
- Pleroma config was updated to (1) remove that mask on the logo, (2) show "who to follow" suggestions and (3) bring the custom emotes from the Mastodon instance. You can now :party_parrot:
- We've updated our suspended users and instances for Mastodon: im-in-space.github.io/blocking

To come:
- Update Pleroma to reject some instances.
- Renew domain.
- CSS Fixes.

im-in.space administration 

We've updated our filter list to include the suspension of "freespeechextremist.com".

Sorry if you saw the offensive posts. :spacecore:

Server somehow ended up freezing.
We rebooted it, looks like everything is fine now.

We muted waifu.social due to their lack of moderation (and after many reports). Feel free to send reports of bad users so they can be suspended on our side at least.

.club is for the emails, I meant .social.

Hey it's Friday and all, I wish I didn't have to deal with that kind of things.

Always wondered why there's an 👁 emoji on status updates?
When you end a toot with it, your message won't be sent to other instances! A nice way to appear in the public timeline without bothering people who aren't affected. Those don't appear in the your profile page outside of Mastodon too.

You can also enable it from the toot options before sending.

For the people using im-in.space, I'm suspending file backups. I just need to setup a nice little secure place at home to save that.
But database (accounts and toots) and configs are still saved everyday.
