Hi Merveilles folks: if you've received an email claiming that someone on our instance is a registered sex offender, please disregard this email. The mods and I have looked into it and can definitively confirm the Merveilles member is not the sex offender mentioned in the email.

If any issues do come up or if you have any concerns, please either email us at hello@merveilles.town or use Mastodon's report feature and the mods will take a look. Thank you.

Hometown migration next steps (more testing) 

No definite timeline on this, I'm back to work at my day job starting tomorrow, but I'll keep you all updated as I test this!

Hometown migration next steps (more testing) 

Next steps:
- Fork current Hometown version and apply Merveilles changes on top of it
- Spin up test server with new Hometown version, then copy over the database from The Town
- If there are no major errors, then I can perform the same migration on production!

Hometown migration next steps (more testing) 

One potential hiccup: we are on Mastodon v3.4.1, and Hometown is up to date with Mastodon v3.4.0. There haven't been any major changes between those two versions, but this means it will require some testing on an external server to make sure things go right first before migrating The Town onto it. So! For next steps…

Wow. We got an email like this sent to our domain requesting GDPR information and I'm glad I didn't act on it immediately: blog.freeradical.zone/post/ccp

Not happy with people doing "research" like this.

+, gender feels, piercing 

Got my ears pierced last Friday! Still needs time to heal, for sure, but I'm loving how these studs look. Getting some real nice gender feels 🖤

Merveilles is going to have its third anniversary this year! It's exciting to think that it's been this long already. I've seen some really cool stuff in here :3

I'm also planning to migrate the instance to Hometown over this holiday! I'll post more details on @maru when they're more solidified.
