After close to 2 years of meowing on the fediverse, we decided to open donations for meow!
Currently they will be used to pay @Nomaxice for his full time moderation work on meow.
Depending on how things evolve from there, we may dedicate some of the funds to pay for the hosting fees (currently handled by @Tiwy57 )

You can do a one time donation at paypal.me/meowsocial

Or chose to do a recurring donation on liberapay.com/meow.social/

Any donation, no matter how small, is appreciated!

You can now share easily your current state, with an emojo that has a code short enough to hopefully fit in your name, fresh from @IceWolf

Feeling alright? :stat_ok:
Feeling meh, some support could help? :stat_meh:
Feeling like you're about to crash and really need support? :stat_warn:
Need space? :stat_dnd:

⚠️ We are recovering from a overload issue (déjà-vu).

The RAID resync is in progress and is the cause of this issue.

We have limited the rate of resynchronization so as to avoid as little disruption as possible.

⚠️ RAID is showing signs of weakness.

Resynchronization is in progress. In the meantime, meow may be slightly slowed down.

We are no longer considered persons. Just creatures.

Now on meow.social.

It's the 1st of May, but we still work to make sure meow runs, and y'all can have a good time here!

:info: The mail server is being updated.
E-mails may be delivered or sent a little late, but no mail will be lost.

Estimated return to normal within 30 minutes.

⚠️ We are recovering from a overload issue.

The RAID resync is in progress and is the cause of this issue.

It will take a few hours before it returns to normal.

Note: these are automatic integrity verification procedures, there was no FAIL disk or system crash.

⚠️ We are recovering from a overload issue.

All services has been restarted.
The situation should return to normal soon.

⚠️ meow.social has been the victim of an attack on the second server that takes care of the big part (database, and media).

OVH appears to have mitigated the attack by redirecting it to the mitigation infrastructure. This resulted in "temporarily" cutting the links between the main site (web architecture), and the database (back).

The attack stopped as fast as it came. Everything went back to normal.

⚠️ The email server encounters some difficulties in delivering certain emails from certain domains.

It does not seem to affect everyone, but we experience a latency of around 3 seconds to 1 hour.

We are investigating.

Technical explanation of the down 

Following some software upgrade during our small maintenance, there was a kernel panic that lead to the inability to boot, OVH techs have right away taken care of it to boot on a clean kernel, it should be all fine now, a few checks for good consciousness will make sure of it.

A derp happened, but we're back again, hopefully for good

Maintenance is required, meow will be down for a little bit!
