Hey there! I'm Somnius, a white tiger living in SF. I code websites, play indie & rhythm games, love all kinds of music, and turned vegan in the middle of this year.
Things I advocate for: furries, non-monogamy, sex positivity, gender identity, LGBT+ rights, democratic socialism.
All of you here inspire me so much with the amazing things you create. I have so much to learn!

Merveilles.town Financials, August 2019
Still extremely in the positives, and the gracious amount of donations we're getting for the instance is absolutely keeping us above water! Thanks again to all the Patrons—I'll also start adding these financial reports to the Patreon as well.
Thanks so much everyone! :D
Merveilles meta, emails
Nice, we're all switched over to Mailgun! Emails are sending nicely. I'll update the docs to reflect the switch in email plan.
Thanks to @rechner for recommending that service! :D
Merveilles Meta, instance management
Well damn, looks like we hit our 500-email limit on Sparkpost last month. We're definitely growing and that's great, but we need to be able to send out emails!
I'll look into other services to see what might work better. We may have to switch to a different service or just use the instance VPS itself to send out emails. I'll keep you all updated!
Fediverse meta, blocklist, announcement, hatespeech
Hey all, it looks like we're appearing on a list of instances to defederate with because a user from here is showing up on the "followers" list of the freespeechextremist instance. I'd like to address this.
That instance was one of the first instances we defederated from after a user from there harassed one of our users here. To be clear, I don't want to associate with that instance of all. That instance very clearly goes against our rules.
Welcome to the fediverse, @dragoness! If you ever need any help with running things definitely let me know :D
Also, it has been a while since I went down to see you with Vang & Vulan! I remember your synth collection was pretty amazing, and seeing you talk with the other pilots at dinner that day was super cool :3
@neauoire For a full list of all improvements, check out the changelog here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.9.3
Highlights include: GIF/WebP support for emoji, properly adding a robots noarchive tag, and a bunch of fixes! :D
@neauoire Aaaaand we're back! Say hello to v2.9.3, everyone :3
Upgrading the instance, you might see a bit of downtime! Ran out of memory just now, gonna reboot the server to compile assets, be right back in a minute :3
