This morning @Alastair and @matt have joined the opencollective, helping to keep this instance running!

Running the server currently costs $30 a month, and every donation helps keep that up for the long term.

Support your local server now, at opencollective.com/mastodon-me

Note that payment processing fees are quite high for small monthly transactions, so if you can pay in one chunk a year, it's more cost-effective.


@Floppy Paying for a year sounds good, not sure how to do so on opencollective though, any ideas?

@annoyingmouse you can click "other", and you get the option. I'm going to try to get that changed to the default.

@Floppy @matt where do you host the server?

@Alastair @matt Heroku for simplicity.

@matt @Alastair @Floppy yay! welcome, newcomers :-)
