After wrestling with numerous technical doohickeys I FINALLY upgraded my own #SelfHosted #Mastodon #Instance to 4.2.0! 🥳

I followed the instructions on and spent a LOT of time troubleshooting errors.

The only thing I haven't configured yet is ElasticSearch which allows for full-text search. Will configure it later! I'm just so happy I got Mastodon 4.2.0 working at least.

Screenshot of the bottom-right corner of my Mastodon instance's page showing is on version 4.2.0. A green circle and arrow point to it saying "Nice" with a sunglasses emoji.

Just had to restore my own #SelfHosted #Mastodon #Instance from a week-old #DigitalOcean backup after having lots of problems while trying to the new Mastodon 4.2.0 update. Thank goodness for back-ups! 😪

I admit I'm not quite familiar with updating Ruby, Node.js, NPM and Yarn, but I am learning. As I'm on 4.1.7 currently, I'll try updating to 4.1.8 and then 4.1.9 first before updating to 4.2.0 as mentioned in 👍

Got any tips for upgrading? Do let me know! #MastoAdmin

Our #Mastodon #Instance has just been successfully #upgrade​d from 4.1.7 to 4.2.0

Overall, the installation was successful, but there were some hairy problems to overcome, with the upgrade to #Ruby 3.2.2 being the least of them. In fact, a server reboot was necessary after the #database migration hung up several times.

The reindexing of #Elasticsearch, on the other hand, went completely smoothly.

Please report problems via DM or mail.

You know, idk what people mean by 'hate speech' but there's a lot of individuals that can easily be offended even by simple joke. I don't care if you are weak glass.

Servers that do not have ' Do not use slurs or racist, sexist, homopho...' yada, yada.

Does anyone have suggestions for getting my #nonprofit themed instance listed on one of the #instance lists out there? I'm hesitant to go with the ones that require you to agree to the #mastodon code or whatever it's called. This is not because I have a problem with the moderation requirements, but rather because with using, I don't have control over who has access to the physical server or how often backups are done.

Someone on one of my #Discord hangouts was looking for a home #instance.

Another user invited them to their home instance. Except this particular instance requires members to verify. This can be tough for folks without a web presence and the knowledge of how to get the special link where it needs to be.

I was at a training for #volunteer #teachers earlier today. They talked about "expert bias" and that's what this is. It is not easy to add the special link.

I try to follow my 7th-grade rule: if I would say it during a sex ed workshop with 7th graders, I don't CW it. #queer #mastodon

What is the maximum amount of #money you would be willing to #pay / #donate to keep your #server / #instance running?

What #content would you most want to keep interacting with? #Friends, #art, #science, #news, #politics, #AI, #tech, #VideoGames, #streaming, #LGBTQ, #furry, or something else? What cause would most entice you? #OpenSource, #NonProfit, #Democracy, #Freedom, or just non-#toxic #SocialMedia?

If you're an instance admin, consider #GetMoarFediverse by @g3rv4. It's a nifty tool that lets you pull #hashtags from servers you specify even if you don't have much interactions with it.

Another tool is called Fedi Buzz Relay:

If you're using #Akkoma or #Firefish, they have the bubble/recommended timeline where the #instance admin can import timelines from select instances & show it to their users.

Hope this helps!

@marqle @kizu this is controlled by the "content retention" settings that your #mastoadmin has set for your specific #instance.

Infinite doesn't exist, everything takes server resources. Smaller instances will have lower content retention due to server resource limitations.

This post is the repetition of my #introduction. First of all. You can ignore all other accounts, since this one give me everything I want.
Sometimes if not, many times, I like to write a lot, trying to explain few little things of reality, using words.
Reality is so beauty that we can only #enjoy it, because we know how #complex is each #fragment of #simplicity. The #key is always in our #ability to #imagine.
The focused subject is as well what create the necessary #tools to #find the expression of it in #reality.
Is curious that subjectivity is for each self, objectivation of reality, which makes things more #funny. The #Solipsism is the condition.
Is like to #imagine that we are #Universes and there is no other thing that can deny your absolute notion of reality.
When I #follow you, it mean I may like the content that you share, but when I interact with it, is where I wish to learn more and create a possible and natural conversation, where two persons try to explain their own interpretation about the subject in causa, so that condition, #lead both persons to #grow. Is the #psychologic aspect of those who #dream, which if you think, even #dogs or #cats do. :D
Thank You #GOD to giving #CONSCIENCE to all simples animals that doesn't #TALK or #READ text, but I am not sure about the #Free will of #Choice that you gave to human kind, while I cannot deny about mine. In fact I cannot deny yours, which is the condition that declare solipsism a false theory. But is #true at the same Time. And all of it is only #data (objects and functions) that are in #memory.
#Theories are like myth's and illusions.. which is our inability to intercept correctly, reality.
Ah, I had other account here in this #mastodon #instance, but I got a strike for giving tips to someone to hack reality. Sometimes, those reactions, lead me to think that no one like to have new suggestions to learn how to deal with reality, which is #strange.. and not.. we go again to our eternal positive and negative condition when dealing with reality, which is solipsism..
I like what is possibly #True. But When I do, I try to care it. Is like trying to care flowers to make them grow #stronger. They will be like many others, but better in upgrading their personal #skills.
Even then, we always need to point into some direction, which includes #intentions. I think reality is fine as it is, but you know, I am just a #Monkey and I like to imagine a better world. That world can be only possible if others agree with it. I don't care who you are, what cultural base you have. You will be persons for all eternity. People have the ability to create what ever they wish to. So, I join this instance because in fact give me everything I need to possess to feel #good. I can write a lot :D Monkey #style. I can explain.. GOOD !!!
Sometimes I have this style, which can be a bit provocative, but what can I do, if not, being my self even if here, I am nothing more than simple text. I am nothing.. I am just data.. only useful if you wish to do something with it. But that is not me, just the data that is here, #impressed in #electrical #signals that our #brain can #process, like #machines do. As you can see.. I am nothing than #text. So since text is data and data can be organized in #onjects and with them we can create #functions, I always like to tag everyone is the #world and talk about #education approaches.
A #lamp is only a #lamp .. if I am the expression of #Yang.. is only light. #Music is #light for my #mind. I don't know about you but I always like to think about #China.
I have a crazy illusion that I have the #mission to talk with the #Dragon. Some #old knowledge says he will help me to dream in a safer way. But I cannot prove that, because that is my illusion. In my illusion, there is the other side of the coin, which is the #Tiger. Even if the Tiger can be good, like all cats, they have that skill that prove to be #brave, while sometimes, #evil.
Dragon have different approachs, and normally, dragons are more respectful, while abcessive with perfectionism. I don't know the Dragon or the Tiger, but here I am talking to them. #USA #ASIA #AFRICA #EUROPE #INDIA #RUSSIA #AMERICA #Galaxy
I am just a peaceful monkey that likes to write and produce music and nothing more.. is what #develpers or #educators do, most of the #Time.. even #Scientists, #jornalists, etc...
But you know.. I am in this shell of Time, that can repeat it self, every time that the conditions to happen are true in reality, else they couldn't happen. :D #activism or #artivism is what some call.. I don't know.. but #rationaliy is in my way of being the self.. that is why I need to give a plent of congratulations to Jerry.
I can dive into the Scientific research that is based mainly in #documents, created by "us". :D ..
I think "God" did like me, but I don't understand why. I cannot explain how thankful I am, but you know, he gave me this mission where an #Eternal #license needs to be accomplished and here, with you, we can solve many problems together.
Is what #technology is doing for years, but we need to focus technology to something good and #healthier for all. #Japan try that, putiing robos as workers. That is good. They have a lot of others #crazy things.. good imagination with #math .. what they cannot ? but hey, USA or SouthAfrica is the same. is Knowledge in the brain. :D
#dance and #enjoy #life and #leave all things that create bad #moods. I like #animals too. all kind. I like #Linux. #Terminal with #Black background, where I can write something and create light, even if doing something wrong. :D

@nus now i'm a little conflicted about the new #mastodon update. On one hand, we have REALLY useful features like this. I'm on a one person instance and would like to keep track of some bot accounts for news and such, but my timeline becomes filled with bots. If I dont follow them, they don't show up on my server at all because of how mastodon federation works. This will alleviate that.

On the other hand, the same update will break projects like, which helps TONS of small #instance #Mastoadmin finetune what gets federated with their server.

I REALLY hope someone comes up with a solution for the problem.

@jenniferplusplus I have the impression that early adopters of the #Fediverse, of which many trans people belong to, fell into the false sense of comfort that there was a stable, uniform #fediculture. But #culture is inherent to #groupdynamics & a 100k group is not the same as a 2M network. While it's paradoxical to seek to enforce a culture across the Fediverse, a network designed to SUPPORT #divergence, I think it's fair to debate whether an #LGBTQ #instance should ban the #BBC or not.

I just updated my #Custom #Mastodon #Instance's #CSS to the #MastodonBirdUI by @rolle – everything looks so much more modern and refreshing! So easy to install, too! :MOULE_Happy: #UI #UserInterface

Screenshot of my profile on my Mastodon instance,, with the Mastodon Bird UI CSS installed. It is on dark mode, with a dark grey background,

The left and right sidebars from the original Mastodon layout have swapped places, profile pictures are now rounded, and overall it just looks more "modern" than the original Mastodon interface.

IMO, the inability of a #FediAdmin to move their #Lemmy, #Mastodon, or #ActivityPub / #fediverse #instance to a new domain without needing to redo everything is a massive oversight. Every other standard provides a mechanism for redirecting, forwarding, Etc to a new domain by now. #MastoAdmin #LemmyAdmin

oh right here's some #stuff i made in like 10 minutes

it's a #mastodonBot that toots the system info (cpu usage, ram usage, disk usage, and uptime) of the server it's running on), which is something that may be useful to #instanceAdmins, and just neat in general, i suppose

here's a toot sent by the bot on my instance:

If you happen to see this toot,

please boost or the point is moot.

Tell your friends, family, enemies, and coworkers (some of which may be the same) about Mastodon!

What’s the best #Mastodon #Instance for buddy’s that are into #graphics and #design that you want to lure away from other social media platforms? 🥲😎🙈 Preferably one that has signed the #fedipact

Does anyone else use the first person for #python docstrings? I picked this up from reading #twisted source written by @glyph and @itamarst. My dialect of it: The #class is speaking about itself. It refers often to "my #instance" or "an instance of me" when speaking of an #oop #object rather than itself as a class. And methods are where it says "I do this" if that's what it does generally, like a leader speaking about what she did with the unspoken help of others carrying out that actual work.

Heya, Amelia here!

I realized I never really made an introduction post for our instance, so here it is. Please boost for reach, thanks! :Blobhaj_Heart:

Transfem is a fairly new Instance hosted in Germany🇩🇪 and thus abides by German and EU privacy protection laws. Transfem aims to provide a safe space for transfem :heart_trans: individuals and allies. While the instance is primarily targeted towards transfem individuals, everyone is welcome as long as you abide by our rules and are an ally.

We would highly appreciate new users, even if you don't fully move, so we can get a little more active. Our local timeline ( is very inactive atm :astolfo_cry: .

Also, because some people like features, here's a list of some features our instance has :astolfo_lurk: :
- Quote Reposts
- Markdown
- 5000 Char Limit
- Local Only Posting
- A Real Verified Badge :Blobhaj_Thinking: (cuz why not)
- Translate button so you can translate messages from languages you don't know
- Reacts
- Ability to add a Music Status to your profile that shows what you are listening to

and others

Last but not least let me mention that we also have a mascot her name is Luzie (image attached to post)

Well, does anyone have an ACTIVE #pixelfed #instance that supports #Mastodon sign-in? Since @pixelfed flubbed it on, I can't use it because I signed up 12 hours before the feature was announced and theirs no backwards compatibility. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤬

If you think words like #server, #instance, #federated, or especially #fediverse are intuitive, welcoming, or commonly understood language outside of techie circles,

then I’d like to ask that you pause and consider broadening your empathy.

Most humans don’t know what these words mean. That reduces their likelihood to embrace a nice place like #mastodon, and condemns anyone who has expertise in other fields to ad-based social media.

formally introducing: watchbird! 🦅

@watchbird is an #uptime #bot for instances around the fediverse. it will CAW when something's up, like when it can't connect to the instance main page. it's powered by #uptimekuma + #apprise + the #mastodon #api.

if you want your #instance added, just let me know here on mastodon @taco (reply or dm, whatever)! i'm constantly adding more servers that i find that i want to keep an eye on.

you can see the full page of monitored instances here:

#bots #mastodonbots #mastoadmin #monitoring #monitor
