:gentle_town: is back online and more honest about itself than ever!

- we run on a raspberry pi at my friggin house! how's that for efficient? (energetically? very. in terms of stability? well, not great)

- we keep implementing custom themes and features (which results in downtime whenever they're added and asset precompilation fails!)

- we have local-only posting (no cons)

still want an account? write to admin@gentle.town (that's an e-mail address) or to any of our users!

hey, everyone, Gentle Town has risen from its ashes after a database failure. we're up and running again, federation is working, but we've lost all pre-existing data.

if you're self hosting, do not forget to make regular dumps of the database and careful when updating sql! #MastoAdmin

instance presentation :boost_ok: 

connor :moomin_tea: boosted

this time around, we want to do things right. given that we're an instance with experimental features that runs on a home server, we've made very clear that we are unstable and have more frequent outages than most instances, and we've closed registrations.

you can still join gentle town via invitation from one of its members or writing to the admin team on admin@gentle.town, but we want to make sure people know what they're signing up for

#introductions hello folks! i’m connor (or evi), a queer 17 year old with ASD and ADHD who desperately wants to be punker than she really is.

i’m very into classic literature, horror meta, stories abt what happens after the world ends, found family, critical role, my partner, the wonderful! podcast, ghosts, and every single redwall book by brian jacques.

i’m one of the mods here at gentle.town! we’re a lovely little neighborly instance and we’d love for you to join us 💙

i'm izzy, and i run the instance gentle.town; i'm a former philosophy student that has gotten into tech and nowadays spends most of the time fiddling with sysadmin stuff.

i'm a big fan of visual arts, both as an audience and as a maker. i love discovering new places, poetry, and mythologies in a broad sense of the word.

i like to post and read about the smaller things in life that make it worth living.

hey y’all! izzy @numen is working on getting gentle.town up and running again. they’re hoping to get a good blocklist started and get a feel of how the new whitelisting system works; so if anyone (including w.e mods, since their message got lost in the instance reboot) on any instance that you feel has a solid moderation could send me a message that would be great!

tldr: trying to figure out some of the most well-modded instances to start a new blocklist!

boosts are very much appreciated!

in that weird tired mood where everything makes me emotional

4.5 hours of sleep was not enough but it’s no one’s fault except for the dang kidney stone my mom had 😖

connor :moomin_tea: boosted

hey, i know some people have been worried about me (on @numen) because i was suicidal and spent two weeks offline plus then g.t crashed; i wanted to let you know i'm alive and not well, but breathing

boost if you wish, maybe this will reach some of the people concerned 💛
