for a brief time, licks became favourites, rawrs became toots, and elephant friend replaced fox friend

we apologize for the dissonance

I'm doing some work on the vulpine.club web server configuration. There will be a few brief (<1 minute) outages while this happens.

Thanks for your patience, and thank you for flying the foxy skies~

Unsilenced gulp.cafe!

Compared to when the instance was silenced, there are now a lot more social connections (and less jerkitude) between their users and ours.

Attn :

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

Going to upgrade to the latest build in a few moments, please hold

we're back! thanks for your patience :)

(nothing new and interesting, just a bunch of version updates...)

When this post is 10 minutes old, vulpine.club will go offline for a couple minutes for an upgrade to prod-20200102-01, and a server reboot for a kernel upgrade.

moderation announcement:

We've taken on @violet as a moderator to help us handle the report queue and otherwise assist the foxes.

Here comes a quick PSA:

Little known vulpine.club (and all glitchsoc instances!) fact: You can automatically expand the CW field on every new toot you make! And here's how to enable that:

1. Click on the "App Settings" box!
2. Click "Compose box", and enable "Always enable the Content Warning field".
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.

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 β€œsuspend” 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.

We accidentally didn't suspend librem.one correctly previously, so now it's actually suspended.

Thanks for being awesome, foxes. Keep rocking on out there.
