    hi guys :) I'm using dismail because my main chat account at draugr.de is down. I checked status and it's unreachable. https://status.conversations.im/ Does someone know how to contact them to give a heads up?

  2. Licaon_Kter

    funnypanda: they are down with everything, site included

  3. funnypanda

    yea I just checked. is that weird?

  4. Licaon_Kter

    Maybe it's service downtime, server changes....

  5. funnypanda

    can be. I'll give it time.

    Link Mauve, ^ XEP for announcing status pages :)

  8. MattJ

    Clients could cache it, and in the event of connectivity problems, display it

  10. MattJ

    And then we can add it to the compliance checker

  11. Link Mauve

    Could be an addition to the 0157?

  12. MattJ

    I wondered that

  13. MattJ

    Quite possibly

  14. Licaon_Kter

    Display what? _server down_? On known server interruptions I guess is courteous that the admin would announce all (or better all-online) about this. But on database RAID server hard drive crash...

  15. MattJ

    Licaon_Kter, pretty much every serious service has a status page

  16. MattJ

    And often with more details than "server down"

  17. Licaon_Kter

    MattJ: on twitter or mastodon Not on the server that's offline now...

  18. Link Mauve

    Licaon_Kter, at JabberFR we host a status page on a different server at a different hoster, so we can inform our users about downtime: https://statut.jabberfr.org/

  19. Licaon_Kter

    Link Mauve: 👍

  20. MattJ

    Licaon_Kter, Twitter or Mastodon is fine

  21. Link Mauve

    This is currently fully manual though.

  22. MattJ

    Licaon_Kter, but the server just being down, with no explanation or indication of when (or if) it will be restored is bad

  23. Link Mauve

    Licaon_Kter, yup, you could link to your Mastodon feed there, it would just be something clients could display automatically to the user in case something is going wrong.

    funnypanda: it's back, any news on wtf?
