i slowly should move mastodon to that new host... it seems that almost no timewindow is really nice for it based on user activity, but i need to do a maintenance on the database as well:
we previously had some errors due to duplicates in the db which have been resolved by hand. the new mastodon release brings a tool that can scan the database for leftovers... for a healthy migration and future.
i think i will do it tomorrow morning. #tchncs
A message from your social.tchncs.de team:
In regard to the recent events regarding a certain head of state, we'd like to remind you that content containing proven misinformation and/or conspiracy is one of the things not allowed here.
In case you consider looking up the rules of this instance, you can do so here:
the #tchncs peertube instance at https://tube.tchncs.de is the first on the new machine. it will share its space with mastodon again. however currently:
* more users can signup with a hcaptcha plugin being tested
* livestreaming is testwise enabled with max 3h, 4 streams concurrently are allowed, one stream per user. transcoding currently only 480p (in addition to original)... this might change.
by the way, i have changed the patreon pledges to euro and hope that the payout now finally becomes euro too. #tchncs

Die Verbreitung von Fehlinformation, Hass und Angst bezüglich Covid-19 und anderen Dingen nimmt zu. Diese Instanz soll ein angenehmer Ort sein, Verschwörungsmythen soll hier keine Bühne gegeben werden.
Wir gehen nun etwas strikter vor: betroffene Konten erhalten eine Warnung und mangelnde Kooperation wird zu Konto-Schließungen führen.
Einige Konten können ohne Warnung entfernt werden, wenn sie zu aggressiv handeln.
Wir gehen hierbei so faktenbasiert und fair wie möglich vor.
Odd humor and very Milan - autodidactic SysAdmin and Photodude,
