Monthly reminder that we have donations system set up for people!

Currently either through
paypal.me/meowsocial
or
liberapay.com/meow.social/

As always, any donation, no matter how small, is heavily appreciated, and serve to pay @Nomaxice for volunteer moderation work.

As an added question for you guys, would you like us to make an income report with the monthly reminder (which would lead to making an actual post like this one, rather than re-boosting the original post pinned on our profile)?

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!

-Updated rules to fix some typos/poorly worded parts, and add some missing stuff.

We may tweak things more to keep up to date.

Since the poll was a rather overwhelming yes, here are the results for July:
We got a total of 20€ all from Liberapay (note, despite showing a "weekly" result, liberapay actually sends the full promised pledge at once so I count it all right away).

If you enjoy your time here, you can donate to meow through the following:
paypal.me/meowsocial
and
liberapay.com/meow.social/

We're very grateful for every donations we receive, you all are amazing! :dark_cat:

ℹ️ Meow will apply a modifications to its rules concerning bots at the end of the week, as per the following:

-Bots should only post in "unlisted", "followers only", or "direct" privacy settings, not public, to keep the local and federated timelines clear and focused on users.

Good news everyone!
The dead drive was replaced, we're all good now!

-NK

ℹ️ REMINDER : The maintenance will begin in a few minutes.

Meow will be undergoing a large maintenance procedure which will require a full shutdown.

We will proceed to a clean backup, in order to solve the recurring drive issues.

This process will take a while, as meow won't reboot until either the drives are replaced, or meow is moved on a healthy server.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope it will take as little time as possible for everything to be back up and running.

While meow will be offline, you can still reach @Nomaxice for any questions and updates

We are in progress to updating Mastodon in 2.9.2.

Please wait :loading:

We're pushing a ticket to get a drive swap to fix the issue, it won't be done before tomorrow at least. Meow will still be fully functional until then.
No data was lost either, so everything should be fine.
If you got any question or spot any issues, feel free to reach us on here, or through our personal accounts.

According to S.M.A.R.T. of the primary Hard Disk :

Reallocated_Sector_Ct FAILING_NOW 1065

⚠️ meow.social has a failed drive.

Again, the Array containing data is degraded.

We will contact OVH to change the failed hard drive. We keep you informed

Okay, I fixed.

Sorry for the inconveniance.
The cron service stopped because no more RAM ...

Time to think to setup supervisord ...

Great, the automatic renew certificate did not work ... :|

We've just launched the rebuild and resync of the Array containing data.

Estimated finish : 5 hours.

You can track the progress in our netdata monitoring : meow.social/netdata/#menu_mdst

Meow was also upgraded to masto 2.9.0 so there's that!

:ms_hot_shit: There was a drive failure on Meow's array.

No data was lost thanks to the RAID setup, but while things get synchronized again, you may experience some slower load times. We apologize for the troubles this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
