@ck @danarel @aral @codeberg Looks like they run on Gitea, which I was going to say is a solid alternative: gitea.io

Linked is a #pherephone "Announce" activity from a writefreely post. It works on mastodon but not on pleroma. I cannot understand why this is. Can any helpful #pleroma or #ActivityPub experts give a hint?

boosts appreciated

Hello! I’m moving here from comicscamp.club, after my webcomic ended and I took up a much more text-centric writing blog.

I’ll get settled in here properly as soon as I’m not on the way home from getting groceries!

@tedu Thanks, yeah this is a bug that'll be fixed soon. Were there any other instances you noticed this happening on?

Mentions fixed

That afternoon the movie theater witnessed two romantic comedies.
One that was playing and one that was happening.
They both lasted 92'.

#MicroFiction

@darius Okay, good to know. Wasn't sure since it's not working in Mastodon upstream.

Mentions will work from our demo instance, pencil.writefree.ly, too. Feel free to create a test account there: pencil.writefree.ly/invite/nr2

And let us know if we can help with anything along the way (cc @qwazix)

@darius Just mentioned you via ActivityPub on a WriteFreely post: matt.writefreely.dev/ap-mentio -- curious if you got it or not.

Excited to support #ActivityPub mentions in #WriteFreely! (In progress here: writefreely.org/pull/195)

So far it works great with #Pleroma, but #Mastodon doesn't support mentions in the Articles we send out (only Notes). So we've opened an issue to fix this: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

People have asked me if having local-only posting somehow discourages federated posting.

I finally did the actual queries on our instance database, and after about a year of having local-only as an option we are at almost exactly 50/50 local vs federated posts.

65% of our accounts have been active in the last month, which is on the high side of normal for an instance with 80 accounts.

We post about 2x more *federated* posts than other instances with ~40 active users.

When the muse arrives, you get to work.

Facebook: I'm in a promising local band.

Twitter: I'm developing an idea for a startup.

Instagram: I'm building an audience to become an influencer.

Mastodon: I use Linux distros you've never even heard of.

@ploum Yep, I think I got the layout and color inspiration directly from your setup 🙂

Agreed -- I haven't missed anything important either. But I understand feeling weird without it. That's why I started by always taking the phone out of my pocket when I'm sitting at home, so it's slightly more work to find it and grab it with a free hand as I'm moving around the house and doing other things. Over time you start to worry less about not having it with you.
