Pinned toot

Hiking to the center of the region's coldest tundra, you finally find it: The Ice Rock. It radiates with an unknowable energy.

You reach forward and touch it, wiping away a layer of snow. The ice is crystal clear, so it's not difficult to see that something is frozen inside it.

A laptop computer is running, despite no obvious source of power, and messages are occasionally printed to a terminal window. If you squint, you can just about make out what they say...

The instance will be a little less stable for the next little bit while I work on a problem with links in bios. No significant downtime is planned but there will be some restarts, causing it to go up and down a little bit. Just a heads up.

mastodon eats too much memory so i have to turn it off while i precompile the stuff from the new update

i'll do it in like half an hour if i remember

glaceon.social instance stuff, long

 

Hey everyone! One quick update, and then a question I have for you.

The update is related to local-only posts. They used to be marked by having "👁️" at the end which, let's be honest, is really creepy. I've changed it so that local only posts are followed by two newlines and a ❄️. You'll see what I mean in just a moment! ;)

*ahem* With that minor hiccup out of the way...

ahh my toots are going through in the wrong order i'm sorry

I was content to just suspend the one user but the radical.town admin appears to be more concerned that people expect them to moderate their instance than they are that they're not moderating their instance, so goodbye radical.town

Okay, everything's broken, the server is on fire and snakes are physically manifesting in my home. I'm going to be reverting all the changes I made yesterday and then redoing them from scratch, trying extra hard to not break anything along the way.

Hey everyone! *We have basic markdown now!*

Just a heads up. <3

Hey, uh, my cron job failed and my SSL cert ran out! But we're back!

It's 3:15 here and I'm basically still asleep so I've fixed the main glaceon.social URL, but if you use a custom subdomain that's still broken

I'll hopefully fix that sometime today

Ummm... oops! We're back now!

Took me a little while to debug what the problem was. I had forgotten to migrate the database :blobfacepalm:​

Anyway, welcome to updated glitch-soc! We have polls now I guess!

Hey everyone! I'm about to update the instance to the latest glitch-soc version. I'm pretty sure I did everything correctly but there were some complications. If there's downtime in the near future, please hold tight while I fix it as fast as I can!

Fixing the "character limit" on external clients

 

Hey everyone! A while ago, upstream Mastodon made a change allowing video uploads of up to 40mb. They never worked here. I never knew why until just now, but they're fixed! Enjoy not having to host everything on youtube if you just want to share it on the fediverse. :3

Bah, never mind, I don't know why it's not doing what I want and I don't even know for sure people would like the thing I was trying to do :P

Maybe some other time.

Hey everyone! Just a heads up that you should expect some weirdness when it comes to custom emojis tonight. There will be brief periods when they'll behave incorrectly, such as appearing twice in a row or not properly respecting your "Autoplay animated GIFs" setting. Other things may happen as well, depends on how much I have to play with it to get it doing what I want. Sorry about that! I'll post again when the disruption is over.

Quick update: Since no one complained, I've added the custom CSS to hide the "Filtered" block on posts you've filtered out. You won't even know they're there.

How to make your instance more accessible in 6 easy commands!

The unlisted icon should be easier to distinguish from the followers-only icon, now.

Oh, and while I was messing with CSS anyway, I went ahead and put underlines on links!

They're transparent by default and become completely opaque when you hover, because I thought that looked pretty good. If it's causing accessibility problems, please let me know!!
