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

@tastymochafox @MirceaKitsune@mastodon.social Hi there, this is @mxsparks on behalf of the vulpine.club moderation team. Weโ€™ve taken your concerns on board, and our response is as follows:

Nazi furs fuck off :trantifa:

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.

- with love and :fox:, @tastymochafox
