Animated GIFs are converted to soundless MP4s like on Imgur/Gfycat (GIFV). You can also upload soundless MP4 and WebM, which will be handled the same way.

Will be taking offline for a while this evening to migrate our media storage to make uploads more stable

We have opened up public registrations for again 🎉

Please support us financially on Patreon and tell your friends!

Doing some server updates so there might be a couple minutes of downtime over the next few hours or so.

Uploading should be working more reliably now, it's still not 100%, but much better than yesterday.

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.

Experiencing some issues with posts and home feeds currently, going to take the server down for some emergency maintenance. Will update when things have been resolved 🤒
