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!

⚠️ 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.

If you wish to donate, you can do so through
paypal.me/meowsocial
or

If you have any question or suggestion, feel free to ping us!
As always, thank you to those that donated in the past and consider donating.
We hope you all enjoy your stay on meow!

The issue with the email system has been resolved.

Meow emails won't be functional for about an hour, the server handling them has an issue that's being worked on.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

-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:
