I've updated again. Now hashtag autocompletes only include results previously reviewed by staff.

That is not a very large pool of hashtags because staff is only asked to review them when they're about to trend, but I feel like otherwise there's too much room for error. Previous versions of Mastodon didn't have hashtag autocomplete so it's in any case better than nothing.

@Gargron Cant say I like that, though of course on your server do as you wish. But I do hope this wont be a common feature on most servers in a future release. I do hope there will be a way to ensure we keep all hash tags if an admin wishes to (like it works now)

@Gargron What do you mean by too much room for error? Couldn’t you have the suggestion order account for frequency to deal with typos and such?

@Gargron great idea and wrong at the same time because foreign languages will be impossible to check...
