Hello,

At tonight's meeting, we discussed hosting arrangements, scheduled TC meetings, made an emergency amendment to the bylaws, and proposed to schedule an EC meeting to discuss further Code of Conduct. A reminder has been sent out for the TC meeting.

The new Code of Conduct is available at interlinked.me/Bylaws.pdf ; the amendment was made to Article XIII Section 2, which was was amended to clarify discretion of penalties for violations.

Q3 and EC meeting dates TBD.

Hi, we have resolved the earlier certificate expiry issue (the reason for downtime yesterday and SSL errors across Interlinked Foundation stuff).

We messed up and forgot to renew. But we're good until 2020 now, when we will doubtless do this again :P. (Hopefully not)

Sorry for that!

It appears all weirdness with the instance has been resolved; we were having sidekiq crashes that we appear to have fixed.

Right now we are doing a media cleanup, status counter cache rebuild, and purging dead accounts.

We apologise for recent downtime; we have now upgraded to 2.3.1. There is no FTS enabled on this instance; we apologise, but we don't have the resources to run it, and the feature is very controversial.

We now have a Matrix server available for your enjoyment at matrix.interlinked.me.

Apologies for intermittency, we had some issues on the frontend HTTP server that have now been resolved.

Hopefully any issues that anyone has been having with mst3k should be fixed. OpenVSwitch had to be restarted.

We apologise for any shakiness with the migration — we're working out the kinks. Bear with us!

ATTENTION MST3K USERS:

We are now off of Scalingo and on our own infrastructure. We have also upgraded to 2.2.0 in the process.

Thank you for your patience!

Executive Committee meeting on IRC today at 8:45 PM Central Time to discuss the format and nature of our programs for 2018.

Interlinked MST3K

This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
