Attn #VulpineClub :
The recent issue with avatars and background pics going missing should be resolved within the next 12 hours or so
a couple weeks ago, an upstream change fixed two things but broke one thing
today, we find the new bug has been vanquished, and profile pictures are being refreshed in the background
for more info, see tootsuite/mastodon:12849

3. Profit! It's now always there! (You may have to reload your web-app.)
hateful instance name, v.c instance block notification
We've blocked lets.saynoto.lgbt in solidarity with our comrades at yiff.life due to the hate spewing forth from it.
Fuck Nazis. Queer liberation forever.

#VulpineClub instance block notification:
We've preemptively blocked gab.com and gab.ai from federating with our instance.
I could write a pithy speech here about why it's important to protect our users from the harassment that's sure to be spewing from that site, but really, I think I'll just be succint:
Fuck off, Nazis.

@everyone: thank you for your assistance in reporting The Spammer. We're clicking “suspend” as fast as we can until we can get a technical solution in place. New accounts currently require approval, so they won’t be spamming from v.c any time soon.
New custom emoji:
Thanks to @backwardsflow for commissioning them!
We accidentally didn't suspend librem.one correctly previously, so now it's actually suspended.
The Vulpine Club is a friendly and welcoming community of foxes and their associates, friends, and fans! =^^=
