Site Update #11, 2020 December 18, 2020 12:14 PM   Subscribe

Hello everyone! This is going to be a brief update because most of what we’ve been working on is posted in the Gala Update. Please go check that out!

  • You may have noticed various SSL certificate shenanigans - we updated and renewed all of that and you shouldn't see any more errors. If you do, drop us a line!
  • The gopher server was down and is now back up.
  • The Mefi Mall is now correctly visible in the header in Classic Plain.
  • The Google Maps API we've been using in a few places no longer works properly. Frimble is working on sorting that out.
  • Due to COVID-related childcare reasons, development is going to be limited to maintenance and urgent bugfixing until the situation changes. We recognize this is not ideal and we are grateful for your understanding.
  • The New Years Gala is almost upon us! Go read about it here.
  • The Mefi Mall is back! Actually it never left, we’ve just added more inroads to it. If you have things for sale that you can put in the mail, add it to the Mall. If you see dead links in there (not everyone maybe knows they are still in the Mall) let us know.
Advisory Board
  • The next BIPOC Advisory Board Meeting will take place after the New Year.
  • We are paying an honorarium per meeting for each board member, and we welcome funding for it! If you want to help with this, you can do that via the Funding Page. Just send a message via the Contact Form or to and let us know to earmark your contribution for that purpose.
  • If any POC are interested in participating in the board or receiving meeting notes regularly, please email
Have a healthy and safe end of the year, everyone! As two weeks from now is New Years Day, the next site update will be posted on 1/8.
