Hi bot friends! The service I use to send emails from the server is having some troubles, so I've turned off new signups for the moment. If you are having trouble with your account you can email me at colin at muffinlabs dot com and I will help you out. Otherwise I hope to have emails working again very soon

@eskuero @Miaourt ok I they are imported now, let me know if you notice any problems!

@pixelpaperyarn @selfcare ok cool. I don't think anything noteworthy has happened on the server other than mastodon upgrades

@design_RG @khird @dragfyre @freemo @bahai it's definitely a bit of a head-scratcher. qoto isn't blocked, and I can see valid requests from the server in botsin.space's server logs. so everything seems fine? it's weird

Hey, if you signed up for an account here and it was rejected, it might've been on a day like this, and I may have done it by mistake! Please feel free to reapply and please do fill in the reason for the account when you sign up

white supremacy PSA 

hi bot friends, i just disabled an account posting messages supportive of white supremacy. that sort of messaging is absolutely unacceptable on this instance and will get you banned immediately without warning. if you see it, please notify me via DM or file a report

@jeroen can you give me the handle of that bot? i'll take care of it. thanks!

@wuerzbot hey, sorry but i have no idea, i've never done what you are trying to do. it certainly seems like it might work, but /api/ probably needs to be lowercase, and also the article you're referring to is a couple years old, so it's possible something has changed to prevent it from working.

botsin.space admin PSA 

hey folks, FYI that i'm going to take the server down for a couple of hours sometime tomorrow for some server maintenance

@mihamarkic you do need an email address for each account. the classic trick if your email provider allows it is to do email+botname@gmail dot com
