@pixelfed Best news of the year !
True federation has arrived! Yay!
@pixelfed how do i add them
@pixelfed is there any public listing of accounts? other instances don't have an obvious public feed
@spudboy No not yet, we are going to add an opt-in profile directory in a future release.
@pixelfed thanks! it includes other instances?
@spudboy Not yet, we will add remote posts in a future release!
@pixelfed lol sorry, i misunderstood! thanks for responding 😈
@dansup Very sad to hear. Depressing in fact, because people's taste for UI design will forever be changing, and I feel it's becoming a drag for feature improvements in many programs.
Although, an art-related social network has to be an exception since it's mainly used for presenting your art to other people, so it's gotta be pretty from the beginning.
@pixelfed Si c'est vrai, et que cela fonctionne... C'est grand....
@pixelfed How do we do it? There's a user I want to follow on another instance, but when I search on that user's URL and click the follow button on the search result, I get redirected to her profile but I don't see any confirmation that I follow her. 🤔 I'm on pixelfed.de and she's on pixelfed.social.
Correction! I have found that my Pixelfed instance does indeed seem to follow users on other instances. The remote follow process that you described redirects but in turn follows that account (check the follower count on your profile) without further ado. I received a new post by one of the people I follow remotely. This is really exciting! 😎
@pete Aha - it coud be that only new posts will show on my home feed. I'll wait and see, thanks for the information! 😀
@pete Users I follow from other instances are starting to appear in my home timeline! 😍
@Antzee Awesome! I like to hear that. ✌️
Did you receive any follow requests to your pixelfed account from other instances yet? If so, do _they_ receive your posts?
Being able to follow user across instances and receiving their posts seems like only one half of the full equation. 😉
@pete No follow requests yet!
@pixelfed Great F news !
@pixelfed great news!
