#Mastodon v1.2 is released https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v1.2
hi all! i have a thing to share with you! my new instance is ready and it is a little different...
toots on this instance are ephemeral; they disappear after a while (between 5 minutes and an hour) depending on the current phase of the moon.
something glitchy, something witchy...
feel free to boost
alright, here’s what I’ve gathered
apparently mstdn.jp was hosted on a small server in the admin’s bedroom
a sponsor has offered to host it on a cloud server (idk what the difference with a regular server is)
the migration of data is proving quite difficult so it’s down in the meantime
gargron and the admin are in contact with one another so it should be fine soon enough
Also, the instance did eventually come back up, but it looks like the old users/statuses haven't been restored. https://mastodon.social/media/aCplfi3mURfsE6Rsms0
mstdn.jp went down and the user count dropped by 42k. https://mastodon.social/media/qqkgZWYamblDKbqNWCE
#MastoDev Streaming API woes
@Support I'm having troubles with the streaming API on both my own instance and the mastodon.social instance. I can open a GH issue if this isn't the right place for this.
Steps to repro:
1. Create new app
2. Authenticate user with OAuth
3. Open user stream
4. Send notification by @-mentioning user from another user
5. Stream clients don't receive the event
With silly log level, I do see the streaming API transmit the event. I am using the nginx conf from the docs.
Woot, Mastodon just hit 200k users! 😱 It was 160k yesterday and 150k the day before that. https://mnm.eliotberriot.com/dashboard/db/mastodon-network-overview
#Mastodon v1.1.2 is released: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v1.1.2
Feature request: a custom per-instance "primary color" that can be easily set through the admin area.
This would change the colors in the main web UI and make it easier to distinguish between instances.
Just realized I never did a proper #introduction … 😅
In my spare time I enjoy watching e-sports (Super Smash Bros Melee) and I also play some guitar. Maybe when I work up the courage I'll post some of the goofy covers @dragonluvr89 and I have done (she has a great voice!).
Very happy to be on Mastodon! 😁
Any #MastodonAdmins using S3 for storage know the answers to these questions? Searched the docs already and couldn't find answers.
Does the S3 bucket need to be set to serve a static website?
Should S3_REGION be in the format us-east-1 or s3-website-east-1 or website-east-1?
Should S3_HOSTNAME be the local IP with some port or should it be the hostname of the S3 bucket static website?
