Follow this account for Toot.Cat site news.

I recommend all local users follow it to receive announcements of planned server outages (hopefully few and short) or issues that may affect them.

Remote follows are also fine.


@news ....aaaand we're back!

We now have twice the CPU, twice as much RAM, and twice as much disk space! Hopefully the site will stop being as sluggish as it has been recently.

Now... I have to apologize, because on Patreon I had stated (in a patron tier description) that the site costs $40/month to run. I do spend a lot more than that for hosting various public-service sites I operate (including Issuepedia, CWRE, and HTYP), but itself was (until just now) on a server which was only costing $20/month. It now *actually* costs $40/month.

I regret the error, which was entirely my own confusion. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make up for this.

Stay safe, and keep on tooting. :tootcat:​

We'll be taking TootCat down for an upgrade in just a few minutes. Watch this page for updates: mew.toot.cat/mw/Pub/2020-03-31

i've recently seen some talk of bots that say something like "we respect nobot, please don't report us" and i want to be very clear, we consider any bot that follows without explicit consent to be an invasion of privacy. please report them if you see any!

can now accept donations via LiberaPay πŸŽ‰ -- so now there's an alternative to Patreon for those who are able and willing to contribute to expenses.

I also need to set something up on OpenCollective, when I have the headspoons.
