Update:
The issue has been resolved, and emails should be back on their way.
Might get a little spammy while the queue is being processed.

It appears meow emails are not being sent out to users, including follow requests and account verification emails.
We're investigating the issue, and will manually confirm accounts until it's resolved.
If your account is set to get follow requests, please check them manually every so often so you don't miss those.
We apologize and will try and sort this out ASAP.

We had a backup synchronization problem for 3 days, without detecting it.

We are currently running a complete and healthy backup to avoid a future problem.

No data was lost. i'm going to fix it now.

@tanakiwah we do not, actually.
Though I remember a third party website that kept track of it, but have no idea what the name was

We have a lot of user registration and our instance is suffering from abnormal activity.

meow.social is very slow, the time to absorb this peak of activity. We are sorry for any problems that may occur.

Since we have a lot of users joining meow.social because of Tumblr's announcement to remove pornographic content ...

Feel free to read our rules about the types of media allowed, how to post them, and what we forbid.

We are here to help you. Do not hesitate to come and talk to us (in DM): @Tiwy57 & @Nomaxice

@floatoverblow for now it just means you won't be able to add them in meow posts, they won't be in the emojo picker
We have not decided whether or not we will entirely block them for now (aka they would only show the shortcode as plain text)

This instance is focused around the furry community, and is open to anyone interested in it. It was created by @Tiwy57 originally for a small group of furry friends, but thought it might as well be open to all fluffies and scalies !
