Thanks for your patience.
Images are now hosted/being served from DigitalOcean Spaces object storage. This should provide for less-expensive image storage and growth in the short- and medium-term. Images are also being cached and served by a CDN (Content Delivery Network) which, ideally, will speed up some image load times.
Yaaay! I'm glad we found a medium term hosting solution.
Hopefully this will help with the money problem.
@britvulcan We're good now and, with this, we should be good for a while!
@mspsocialusers very serious question: where can i buy the enamel pin please

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.
We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
