News about the hosting :tada:
For your information, ACP is now hosted on a shared server containing many Mastodon instances, called @mastohost.
It is still hosted in france though, if it can make any sense.
acp is back!
we are back! on a shiny new server. it'll take some time (20 hours or so?) to finish getting all the media where it belongs, but everything else should be working okay. thanks for your patience.
random fun fact: ACP users have posted ~100,000 images!
thanks, @hugo for being lightning fast with the changeover.
ACP downtime today
Reminder that ACP will get down today around 6pm UTC for an undetermined time.
You can follow our admins backup accounts to get information during the maintenance time.
we will be migrating to masto.host's shared hosting. our server will still live in france. we will make announcements when the time comes for downtime so you have some warning.
this also changes our operating costs to EUR 30/mo (previous: 45). Donate links are in the profile.
thanks for your patience and understanding.
-@ghost & the ACP admin team
please block and report follow bots/federation bots. -@ghost
i have no idea what happened to the instance block list on our /about/more page but someone will recreate it when someone has a chance. sorry 'bout that. -@ghost
important CW request for ACP members (sui ment)
mentions of suicide in ANY context MUST be behind a CW. suggested CW text:
sui ment (mention)
suicide/mh (mental health)
We don't care how you tag it-- just tag it.
this is not negotiable.
suicide has personally affected many of us and has been in the news lately. many of us struggle daily.
we can build a better world by starting small. let's start by being gentle with each other.
ACP instance block
pleroma.rareome.ga - overall disgusting bigotry with the awesome added bonus of hostile code that does not honor blocks or privacy settings.
ACP instance blocks
voluntaryism.club: ancaps LOL.
toot.zone: blatant transphobia condoned by admin.
friendly reminder that we're still having trouble with @Emma as an automated admin bot, so reporting toots (with a description of the issue!) is the fastest and most helpful way for admins to respond to specific incidents.
dear anticapitalist friends: invitations are now enabled, if you'd like to invite some of your other anticapitalist friends.
please ask them to read our code of conduct before they use the links you generate, okay? ACP is awesome because of you all keeping this place awesome. :)
thanks, friends! - @ghost
