Back in 2019 we had to upgrade the server and the supporting services to cope with the demand of thousands of concurrent users. Up until now these costs have been funded by generous monthly donations, but due to recent banking and accounting complications I'm no longer able to take donations though Patreon.

So over the next few days I'm planning to downsize the server to something that's more reasonable to fund from my own pocket. There might be some downtime, and things might be a little slower, but should still be adequate for the demand we are seeing now.

I will also be open to offers for taking over the platform ownership, I'm less invested these days, and I have little time to invest in developing or promoting the platform. There will be some technical and ethical requirements that will need to be satisfied for someone else to take over, and notice will be given to users in advanced of any changes in ownership to allow users to migrate / delete account data if they wish.

Okay so we have migrated to the new server, there might be some moving teething pains, I'm seeing some media returning 404's which is being looked into. Let me know if you run into any issues

Things are a bit slow due to the rebuilding of home feeds, but that should be completed within an hour or two.

Media issue has been solved also, and everything should be working as expected again.
