resolved and closed out pending reports, blocked some nasty instances

@sks316 @prehensile Unfortunately no, you would have to migrate your account to a new username. Mastodon does not support username changes.

@Redleaveshavefallen yes, go into your YL settings page and there should be a tab for β€œinvites”, if you still can’t find it I’d be happy to get some screenshots later!

@RedFuture two years later, I’ll share my secret

I extended my maned wolf legs into the atmosphere and then retracted them

If and when the mastodon surge happens, I think admins need to do more to set expectations on how blocking works. Reminding users that they can personally block instances and users. Help to ensure that user problems do not become β€œinstance vs instance”. Admins have a responsibility to their users and the wider community, and should try to avoid instance blocks for dispute resolution unless it involves Prohibited Content. Learn from failed instances.

Right now the majority of moderation issues we deal with are instance level blocks - every few weeks we have to purge some that host Prohibited Content. Great job everyone!

All- Y.L public registration will remain closed as I am not looking to significantly increase overhead and moderation requirements. You may still generate your own invite codes for friends.

I do not mind if you invite friends, but I am not looking to grow Y.L - infinite growth comes with infinite problems and I think we’ve got it pretty cozy here. I would prefer to keep running it at its current maintenance level.

i think it sucks how difficult it is to customize mastodon's interface. from colors to changing UI images. half the reason it's such a pain in the ass to upgrade yiff.life is because of the customizations i want to maintain between releases*

*yes, it should be in github. someday.

@dogo please feel free to reach out for anything, you are not being a bug or bother

@catgoat i am mildly worried abt this one because it requires component upgrades.... i really wish mastodon had an upgrade system similar to how Discourse works. i dont get why more open source software can't emulate Discourse's one click container update system

I am reviewing the requirements for upgrading us to v3.5.1, looks hefty and may require some downtime.

@dogo just accepted/approved

we were moving slowly with them and it got buried under spam invites. everything is invite only now

Yiff.Life is now invite only. To reduce spam registrations and limit the growth of this instance, I am closing public registration. User invites are still open in case you want to add a friend, but the registration form on the main page is now closed.

The zoophile instance has been defederated and blocked at the firewall level.

@avery just remember that it's an S3 service so they do charge for upload & storage, but im p sure its still less depending on use case
