The issues with media are still ongoing unfortunately. Annoyingly it would be near impossible to migrate to a different provider while they are having issues.

Our media storage provider has been having issues for the last few days and as a result uploading/viewing media might not work all the time. Keeping an eye on it, but unfortunately the issue is out of our control.

Everything should be fixed now, let me know if you see any issues 🙂

Okay I think I fixed the issue 🤞

If you see "Your home timeline is empty!" that's expected at the moment. I had to purge all the home timelines, no data is lost, but I have to run a process to repopulate them for each user and this might take several hours in total.

Verified accounts / emoji removal 

Verified accounts have never been a thing on Mastodon (for various reasons) but people figured they could add the :verified: emoji to their display name.

This causes confusion so we decided to remove the emoji from the instance entirely.

Anyone that had this in their display name will probably want to update it as it won't display correctly anymore. Minecraft / Gamer Discord 

A few months ago we had a lot of interest in having an official Minecraft server. Due to @james being slow with these things, @KyleJ put his big boy pants on to create an gamers Discord ( to discuss the direction of the Minecraft server and to get gamer babies (and caregivers) together to play games.

The link is only valid for one day, but if you need a new one message @KyleJ or @james
