Ton of updates to deploy later today 😁

(I will also be open sourcing it today)

Good Morning!

Discovered a spammer had sent hundreds of DMs on pixelfed.social to local users.

Since we filter out DMs from accounts you don't follow, no notifications were sent and impacted very few users.

Upcoming Instagram changes warn users to accept activity tracking to "Help keep Instagram free of charge" πŸ™„

The spam detection system works great, over 1600 posts have been caught and prevented from appearing on timelines (on pixelfed.social)!

Sometimes the spammer will appeal, which means they are adapting to our new measures πŸ˜„

This is the cofounder of FediDB, his name is Tuk and he is working on finding the email bug.

I feel bad that I wasn't able to launch with more projects on FediDB.

Kind of tedious to locate all the metadata we use, maybe I should crowdsource this data to make it easier to add new projects to the fedidb.org/software section πŸ€”

The cat likes our new place, we’ll be spending our first night here 😁

Sorry that has been delayed, I'm moving on Monday and its been a bit hectic.

I don't have an ETA for launch, I'm hoping I can get it done this weekend πŸ˜…

P.S - Here is a sneak peak of how the software pages will look!

Discovering and exploring fediverse projects and instances on the network page is really cool.

I want to make useful for everyone!

Added a new section to for fediverse software. Can't wait to launch the new fedidb.org 😁

Didn't expect pixelfed be one of the top 10 fediverse instances!

Wow, who honestly thought this would be a good idea? πŸ™„

Really excited for FediDB, its something I wish existed when I started Pixelfed.

I hope it helps bring fediverse developers closer together and encourages greater compatibility across implementations!

I don't want to be abused or become a nuisance to instances so I added domain verification.

This means you'll only be able to use features and test against your own domain/instances.

After almost a year of development, I am happy to announce will be launching to the public this weekend!

Building ActivityPub applications will be much easier with FediDB.

Special thanks to @NGIZero for funding development of this project!

Built a linktree like service for the fediverse.

The beta will be rolling out later this week for pixelfed users, will open up for everyone in a few weeks.
