Let's just pretend nothing ever happened, alright? No? Oh, well.

The server ran out of disk space, because some incompetent admin did some stupid things, which caused a long downtime. But we're back, isn't that what really matters?

We have now turned off the old server. If you are unable to read this, refresh your device's DNS cache. But if you are currently reading this, you are obviously not unable to read it, so there is no need for you to do anything.

You may run into rate limits while using Skrt at the moment - we are trying to fix this. Worst case, it'll be over in a few hours once our DNS changes have propagated to your devices.

Also, Skrt is now running on its own little dedicated server in Vienna, Austria. Before, it was a virtual machine on a server in Whatevertheplaceiscalled, Germany.

In other news, Skrt is now on the darknet, where it belongs. skrt2kqt5dejqb6y.onion/

By the way, Skrt is now available through IPv6. No, it wasn't. Yeah, we know.

Second downtime coming twenty minutes from now. If everything's fine, this should only take about ten minutes. If not, well, we'll see.

Just as a heads up, we will have another downtime of a few minutes later today to finalize our migration. Hopefully shorter than the last one.

27 minutes. Even faster than expected. Happy now, @eest9?

Skrt will go offline in ten minutes for migration of the database. We expect to be down for approximately 30 minutes.

We are currently migrating media files to the new server, so old images, including profile pictures, may temporarily be unavailable. Any new media files you upload should be served correctly.

Skrt is going to move to a new server on the weekend, so expect a few minutes of downtime during the migration.

Just suspended four accounts for spamming...

Yeah, I know we're late to the party, but we just upgraded to v3.1.3. 🎉


We understand that the coronavirus is on everyone's mind right now, and there's plenty of discussions to be had and jokes to be told, which we also want to be an open platform for.

However, we are asking you to keep in mind that there are people out there who might not want to read your every thought and every bad joke related to this sensitive issue, e.g. because they are directly affected, or because they have simply had enough. So please add CWs to any Covid-related toots. Thank you! ❤️

We now have a dedicated account for any kind of technical announcements regarding Skrt. Also feel free to contact us with your questions, ideas and feedback! SKRT! SKRT!
