nginx service failed to reload after ami creation on DS FE.

manually started nginx and cycled mastodon services.

The first phase of started this afternoon and we've already analyzed over 2.5 THOUSAND images. Those are NEW images to since this afternoon, not ones previously uploaded.

@staff cloudfront re-enabled, too many reports of being unable to load media.

@staff cloudfront switch completed - 24 hours starts now

What makes Displaced.social different from Mastodon.social or other instances?

We're trying to set ourselves apart by offering a safe, open space focused on those in the NSFW LGBT+ community.

We also..

  • Offer larger file upload limits than most Mastodon instances.
  • Are completely transparent about our finances and engineering.
  • Do not sell advertising and are 100% community supported.
  • Plan to offer age verification with profile badges in the near future.
  • Cache content in locations around the globe for fast and reliable loading from anywhere.


(there has to be some rules)
  • DO NOT sign up, if you are under 18!

    You may be asked by @staff to provide identification if there is reasonable doubt of your age. We do this for the protection of the community.

  • NEVER post illegal content (includes zoophilie and/or bestiality)
  • NEVER post anything containing depictions of children!
  • NEVER post anything containing necrophilia or death!

    The above includes but is not limited to photos, videos, gifs, or illustrations posted publicly or privately. If you violate the above your account will be permanently suspended and your content will be purged and/or reported to authorities.

  • DO keep racism and hate speech to yourself!
  • DO flag posts that don't follow the rules!
  • PLEASE use proper Hashtags describing your content, so other users can find and or filter your content!
  • Escorts and other sex worker related users should use Switter.at instead of Displaced.social. Though you are welcome to have an account here to post content you will not be allowed to offer or directly link to your services on this website. We're sorry about this but the FOSTA/SESTA bill in the United States puts us at risk of being shut down.
