@grey One question for you: does this still occur on the Mastodon-Dark theme? If it doesn’t, that means we’ll probably have to adjust our own theme!
Mastodon is trending in India

@kodedninja Indeed! Tons of people were making stuff for Inktober, so that could have been a part of it :3
We just don’t know
My guess is that English is a fucky and extremely inconsistent language consisting largely of borrowed words from other languages and a mishmash of Greek and Latin, plus some Germanic roots as a base
Which is why “economical” means “cheap” in most situations and “political” means “relating to politics” for some dang reason, even though they use the same suffix

Aaaaand we’re back! Apologies for the suddenness of this, but hopefully this should stabilize things for now until I can diagnose the issue :3
This will increase server costs briefly until I can figure out what’s going on, but we have enough extra funds built up where we can safely do this. Thanks a bunch y’all! 🖤

Hey all—looks like the server has gone down twice in the past couple days because of the server memory maxing out. I’m not sure of the exact issue just yet, but as a temporary fix, I’m going to increase the server’s memory until I can see what’s happening.
To do so, I have to turn off the server for a few minutes. Sorry for the sudden announcement, but I want to make sure the instance is stable! I’ll keep you all updated as this progresses.

@rezmason Love the 3D model on there :D
@s_ol Oh, that makes sense! Glad it uploaded successfullly :D
Looks like the upper limit of video files is 40mb, according to the docs, so that was well within the limits: https://docs.joinmastodon.org/usage/basics/#media
But yup, keep in mind that, depending on how large the filesize is and where you’re uploading from, it can take a long time for your file to reach the datacenter in Frankfurt! Definitely keep me posted on any further issues that may arise :3
@s_ol Strange—can you send me a link to the same file? I’d like to do some testing on my own!
Also, how big was the webm?
@s_ol There are no issues that I’m aware of! What problem are you experiencing?
