Hey, folks!

I'll be doing maintenance in the lewd.town server tomorrow morning, at around 8h30 Brussels time time.is/0830_31_Jan_2019_in_Br

The maintenance should last at most for 2h, and during that time lewd.town will be unavailable via web and apps.

During the maintenance window you can get in touch with me at my other @.

Hey, folks!

We're now on 2.7.0! The biggest changes are:
- There's now a profile directory, which is opt-in. You can add hashtags to be found there.
- The tutorial after sign-up was redesigned. You're going to see it again!
- There's a new public hashtag page.
- The moderation system got some warning possibilities.

You can see the whole changelog over here:
github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Let me know if anything is not working!

Hey, y'all!

Given that tumblr is going to be closing it's doors to adult content, lewd.town it's going to become invitation-only for a while.

We're a small community and I want to keep the community running nicely, without any issues.

You're still going to be able to invite friends and significant others by using the invite funcionality.

Please refrain from generating unlimited invites and posting publicly, as that would defeat the invitation only change.

Hey, y'all!

We're suspending albin.social for privacy concerns. They're being set-up as a mastodon fork with ads (or paying to see no ads). Since with advertising usually comes data collection, we're preemptively suspending the whole domain.

When domains are suspended, no user from there can follow a user from here or vice versa. No posts go there or are shown here.

Hey, y'all!
I've applied a patch to fix a bug introduced apparently in 2.5.0 which caused EXIF to not be stripped out of images if the image was smaller than 1280x1280.
This could leak EXIF information on your pictures (localization of where the image was taken or camera information).

The fix is this one: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/
