The DigitalOcean costs spiked a bit because of the memory issue we were having in the middle of the month that I didn't resolve until about a week later. However, that's all fixed now and we should see our costs go back down to the $24/month that it was before for the following month.

It looks like S3 costs are kind of ballooning as the instance grows in size, however, and while we're not quite going over budget yet by any means, it may be worth it to see how a comparable image host costs.

It was a fantastic last month though! I hope you all are doing super well, and that you also had a lovely November. Merveilles.town turns 1 later this month, too. I can't believe it's already been around for this long.

Cheers, and have fun! :D

@somnius the patreon donation is really coming through ^_^

it's nice that while more user means higher cost for the instance, the patreon donation (hopefully) also grows with more users.

@somnius what's the graph looking like between user count and instance cost? is it a linear correlation, or exponential?

@somnius (also - thanks for spending the time to manage instance and write about how it goes, as always!)

@changbai I should make a proper graph like this, though tbh I haven't been recording user number super diligently >.>

I do have the instance costs and donations recorded pretty well though!

@somnius looks like the-federation.info/node/merve recorded the user growth, and other statistics.

@changbai Whoa, that's cool seeing the growth like that :D
