One thing I forgot to correct last time: I got 25 cents less in Patreon donations than I reported last month, but the "Money left over" amount this month is the exact same as what's in the bank account for the instance!

However, the instance has been around for a full year!!! Super psyched about that :D

I've also gotten the instance costs way down since I deleted the old external assets that had been around for ages. To keep costs down, I'll continue to do that each month.

Thanks a bunch to all the donors, and to all of you! I have a few things I need to work on, like opening up to more ways of donating and other smaller things. I'll keep you all posted! :merveilles:

@somnius What, as a community, can we do to keep costs down? Is image hosting the biggest cost or is it just 'usage' by keeping in sync with the fediverse?

@vega Actually the community isn't the main culprit for costs here! Over the past year our local instance has only 5Gb worth of assets on S3. It was costing a ton the month before because we had 181Gb of assets coming in from the rest of the fediverse. So, y'all can continue as normal! I just gotta make sure to remove old remote assets every once in a while >w>
