Due to ongoing maintenance of marking and removing old unread news items (over 11 MILLION) we have disabled News feed updates for the time being. Once the operation is finished we will re-enable it.
From 11.5MILLION news items only about 700 000 are read! If you do not intend to read stuff, do not subscribe to News (some of you are subscribed to as many as 8000 News feeds!). Think of others and think of resources you waste. Do not litter!

Matrix - Disable inactive account; database maintenance; moving riot to another url, scheduled 3 weeks ago
Finally, after previous scheduled matrix maintenance has been postponed due to non-disroot related workloads, we are back on track.
Tomorrow night (Amsterdam time) we will start disabling inactive accounts on matrix. That operation will be followed by database maintenance where we are going to:
delete redacted messages (normally not removed from the matrix database)
Delete empty rooms (normally not removed from matrix database)
Reclaim disk space on the database
This means for the time of the maintenance operation, the server will be offline which might take good few hours.
Additionally as we mentioned before, Riot (the webchat for matrix) will be moved that day to new url. From then on, you will be able to access it via https://riot.disroot.org
