That would likely be icinga.miraheze.org (login as guest/guest), however it's odd, because the servers (lizardfs1 and lizardfs2) both seem to still have 17 GB free. Is this just not allocated to the file system? Thing number two, can we actually do something about this, even if it winds up being a temporary thing?
Hi, we currently have adequate monitoring in place. We will be looking at seeing if it has a api that tells us correctly how much storage is left.
Also what remediation are you looking for?
The only thing we would need to do is extend the storage which can easily be done but we are lacking funds to do it.
So maybe asking for donation through centralnotice might be the solution for the time being. Some users have already suggested it on our discord, and perhaps it's indeed high time we did so.
@Paladox told me LizardFS allows extending the available volume size by buying an extra server with lots of disk space (as an addition to our current servers), I'll assume this does not need to be yet another CVZ in NL, although that does have our preference.
CVZs won't make their way back to NL anytime soon.
We should get a vps in hetzner for 3.01 euros that will allow us to use block chain storage (which would cost like 4.89 euros for 100gb of block chain ssd).
This would allow us to future proof miraheze file storage infrastructure.
I'm pretty okay with this idea. If this works out, we may want to move all of the file storage to another DC, so we don't get too much replication traffic. But static data would be fine to keep in another DC.
The placement of erotic, pornographic, extremist material or material not deemed in good taste is not permitted.
Yes. Not permitted is the set of content ("erotic", "pornographic", extremist", "not deemed in good taste"). Therefore pornographic material is expressly prohibited, as are erotic writing and tasteless jokes.
That would be problematic as 1) it would take a while to get the changes through 2) there would still be remaining content that would be on wikis that would be nearly impossible for us to purge, and therefore we would be in breach of Hezner's policies.
Therefore I'm afraid we're probably going to have to look for an alternative, and fast.
Blocking controversial material is one of the main reasons why we and other Uncyclopedias moved from Fandom to Miraheze in the first place, because you can't do satire without offending someone. Such a restrictive host would kill us, and we just moved here.
