Hello, !

We updated There's Life to use the glitch fork of Mastodon. It includes a few improvements and additional features that should improve the experience.


We experienced a few minutes of downtime in the process, but thanks to @josias and @jwinnie everything is now running smoothly.

The aforementioned administrators are now working on a fork of Mastodon that implements a new "neighborhoods" feature.


currently has one person actively moderator and administrating the instance. We used to have another moderator until recently, but for the last few months one person has been reviewing applications, monitoring the federated timeline, and managing the server. Unfortunately, some things have slipped through the cracks.

So we're looking for another member of the There's Life community to help moderate the instance.

This would involve:
- Reviewing registration applications (simply filtering out spam requests)
- Monitoring the federated timeline (deleting offensive posts and muting users if necessary)
- Resolving reports (which are generally few)

If you'd like to help out or just ask more questions about this, please DM this account or reply to this message.

Welcome new users on There's Life!


And more.

This instance has been growing rapidly in number of new users, but will they stay? We shall find that out in the future. 🙂

Enjoy There's Life and the Fediverse, all of those listed above!

Registration is being closed for There's Life.

We have 145 users total with 75 active this month and 41 active this week.

Registrations will likely be closed in about a week for the health of our community, so it doesn't grow uncontrollably and disrupt the cl.

New users will still be able to join by using invite links provided by existing users.

Feel free to share your thoughts by replying. This decision is not final.

has been updated to Mastodon version v3.3.0. Everything is working fine at the moment, and minor fixes (such as fixing character limits) will be made shortly.

New features since v3.1:
- Notes for other people
- New audio player
- Better notification system
- Probably many others

As you all know, there was some downtime for theres.life. The administrator was gone for a week and did not have access to a computer and did not even know it was down until an hour ago.

The problem has now been resolved, and we are working on keeping it from happening again. Most importantly, we are looking for someone to help with emergency access to the infrastructure.

Now we can again enjoy this community of those who live in the new life in Christ.

Good morning or to all members of ! I hope you are having a wonderful day.

@masterofthetiger ("I" in this post) has been told about a hosting service called SSDNodes. Switching to it would greatly cut down on the costs it would take to run the Life Network since they offer higher resource servers for low prices.

I will have trouble paying for the expenses in the near future, and having this covered would ensure the long term reliability of the Life Network. For example, that pesky timeline bug should be a thing of the past.

In addition, renting a server with higher resources would allow for better service of There's Life and other associated services (such as There's Code and Let's Write). It would also allow for the possibility of more services for the convenience of our members (a chat server may be possible as well).

This is only possible if we are able to gain enough money up front to pay for it. This is why I am starting a fundraiser here to be able to improve the Life Network and ensure a more stable future.

Specific information will be provided in the next post.

Thank you to the amazing people who make There's Life a great place to be through their participation.
