Service is slowly returning to normal operation. Thank you for you patience.

Happy tooting! πŸŽ‰ :mastodon:

We will search for alternative storage providers with similar services in the future.

Cached files can are delivered by our CDN provider, so the instance may be working in some way for some of you.

Our storage provider Wasabi just published an update on the incident of the last three days. Currently their service is completely down. They expect there to be at least one hour of downtime (starting at 21:30 UTC).

In the meantime mastodon will be affected directly:
- it is impossible to reliably upload media files to our instance
- the server is unable to fetch remote media files
- you client devices are unable to retrieve already published media files.

Service is retuning into normal operation. Thank you for your patience.

Happy tooting! πŸŽ‰ :mastodon:

Due to an issue with our storage provider "Wasabi", media files may fail to transfer. We are aware of this issue and waiting on Wasabi to resolve it. In the meantime we advice you not to upload files to Mastodon.

We will inform you as soon as possible when the issue has been resolved.

@club for now the registration is closed. You can still invite your friends with an invitation link at

Yesterday and today multiple user accounts were created on this instance and instantly marked as bots, just sitting there and doing nothing (at first sight at least). It is unknown what their purpose is.

We investigated these accounts and found out that every account has been opened by the same IP-subnet linked to a company from the Seychelles.

We are going to block this IP-range and publish the range to be transparent in our actions.

The safety of our users is very important to us.
