We're now running Mastodon 3.0.1, thanks to @mastohost and of course @gargron and the rest of the Mastodon team. See what's new at https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/10/mastodon-3.0/
Also: we've created a commercial use policy that says we will suspend purely commercial accounts from this server. See more at https://mastodon.me.uk/about/more#commercial-use
mastodon.me.uk silences or blocks some servers known to regularly violate our standards. You can now view the list of blocked or silenced content at https://mastodon.me.uk/about/more#unavailable-content. #transparency
If you’re new here, here are some tips for #gettingstarted in the fediverse!
* search some hashtags you’re interested in
* look at the federated timeline
* follow and unfollow people liberally
* post an #introduction toot with lots of hashtags
* look at who other people follow
Like any other network, it takes a while to build up a feed, but there are plenty of interesting folks here! Welcome to the fediverse, and have fun :)
We've blocked some fediverse instances that don't fit with the sort of positive space we want to create. We're using the @blockchain from https://github.com/dzuk-mutant/blockchain/blob/master/list/list.md.
Only domains with illegal content are outright blocked. Others are silenced from the federated feeds, but if you want to follow anyone on them, you can; knock yourself out.
If you have any problems, or can't access accounts you really want to, let us know!
And we are back up and running, now hosted by @mastohost. Thanks for bearing with us during the transfer, and get in touch if you experience any problems! 😍
DOWNTIME ALERT! The mastodon.me.uk server will be offline from 20:00 UTC this evening (2018-07-14) for an hour or so while we migrate to new hosting with @mastohost. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience!
We're now running Mastodon v2.4.0, with many improvements including:
* Offline mode!
* Better direct messaging!
* Profile metadata!
* Custom emoji and bot badges for profiles!
* More privacy controls!

Sorry everyone, we've had a few server problems the last few days, due to running out of memory space on the redis store. We have more space now, and @Floppy is looking at moving to a new server where we can more space without the current cost.
