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.

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˜„

I started the installer and UIKit back in 2019 and just now are they almost ready πŸ˜…

Ok, maybe it wasn't such a lazy sunday πŸ˜‰

Put in almost 70 hours of work this week, not including .

Feeling exhausted, can’t wait to go on vacation after things open back up.

The Pixelfed forum will be launched with the mobile apps and feature a Mobile App Support category for support and to better organize feedback during the beta.

Best part is the forum supports ActivityPub, so you can reply to threads without having to register an account! (We'll open source the forum shortly after)

I've revised my plans for the Pixelfed mobile apps in light of what Google Play did to Element*.

Will be adding some last minute changes before we publish the beta release.

From 14 seconds to less than 1s, the Discover page now loads much faster!

I had a lot of fun building the feature, I know its pretty basic compared to Spotify Unwrapped but we'll get there eventually!

Text only posts federate, just a few things to finish before they are ready!

Having a few beers while prepping the next release 🍻

Avatars from remote instances now fetched and stored on S3!

This was one of the last things to do before releasing v0.10.10.

Database backup job was causing a brief daily outage due to table locking. Will be shipping a fix for this in v0.10.10 lol

Good Morning!

Added Blurhash support to timelines last night, much better UX especially when using cloud storage + uncached media!

Added Polls support, they will federate and are similar to Mastodon polls with the exception of notifications when the poll closes.
