seems like we haven't had images load for a bit over a week; apologies for taking so long to address this. the cause was that the SSL cert for the object storage domain (files schelling.pt) had expired, as I had forgotten to renew it at the same time as the primary cert for the root domain. I've resolved the issue & will try to find time to automate the cert renewal so that we don't face this issue again

major thanks to @WomanCorn and @TetraspaceGrouping for pointing this out!

once again, apologies for the downtime! I am investigating the root cause, and setting up monitoring/alerting will be my highest priority this weekend, in order to minimize the risk of this recurring. thank you for your patience and for bearing with our growing pains!

apologies for the recent downtime! I'm still looking into what happened and will report back with findings. for the time being, we are back up.

it has been brought to my attention that within the last few days our federated timeline has gotten rather... interesting. while no one HAS to see these posts, it can be suboptimal when there is a low signal-to-noise ratio. in the interests of good content, is there appetite for silencing some of the worst offenders? Silencing means that users from those servers can still be followed, but other posts won't show up in the timeline. open to suggestions!

the SSL issue has been resolved and images should be working now! please let me know if this is not the case, and generally if anything isn't working!

we may experience momentary downtime (<5 mins) within the next half hour as I fix our SSL/media issues; working images incoming!

hey there all y'all, and welcome to schelling.pt! I appreciate you joining me in this experiment and hope we succeed in building a nice lil community here. one thing that may help is linking back to your Twitter on your profile, like I did in the attached pic; totally optional, but may help us get our bearings. I'm still working out some of the kinks in the setup and would appreciate if you report any issues to me or @locus ! ty and have fun

admin announcement: there seems to be an issue with our media host's SSL cert causing images to not load; this will be resolved this weekend
