mastodon accounts stuck at "Awaiting connection acknowledge"

Hi !Friendica Developers

i try to follow some users on the #mastodon instance https://mstdn.tokyocameraclub.com
Whenever i follow a contact on that instance they are stuck at "Awaiting connection acknowledge" (and not showing up anywhere, see #7526).
I did a test with my account on mastodon.social and following them works flawlessly, the accounts are not locked or something like this.

Seems like my #friendica instance and this particular mastodon instance don't speak the same language. ;)

Friendica: 2019.09-dev 2109-08-18
 
Schon seit der ersten Version von Mastodon wollte ich eine Lobeshymne auf OStatus schreiben! Sowas wie „OStatus hat auch nach über 6 Jahren an Relevanz nicht verloren“ oder „selbst nach 6 Jahren, setzen neue Plattformen mit Erfolg auf OStatus“ oder „mein 6 Jahre altes OStatus WordPress Plugin funktioniert mit nur wenigen Anpassungen auch mit Mastodon„…

Das kann ich mir jetzt leider sparen. Eugen Rochko, der Gründer von Mastodon, schrieb schon 2018:

I can’t wait until I can begin removing OStatus-related code from Mastodon. I think GNU social is the last remaining fediverse project that hasn’t yet switched to ActivityPub?
Eugen Rochko auf Mastodon
Über Patreon hat er seinen Plan jetzt nochmal konkretisiert:

[…] OStatus […] has overstayed its welcome in the code […] and now that most of the network uses ActivityPub, it’s time for it to go.
Eugen Rochko auf Patreon
…und der Pull-Request, der PubSubHubbub und Salmon ausbaut, wurde am 6. Juli ge-merged.

🙁
Wie geht’s weiter?
OStatus war wegweisend! Statt ein komplett neues Protokoll zu beschreiben, hat OStatus bestehende De-Facto-Standards in einer Spezifikation zusammen geführt. Für viele Plattformen, war es dadurch relativ einfach, OStatus einzusetzen, da sie in der Regel Teile der Spezifikation sowieso schon betrieben.
Protokoll-Übersicht von the-federation.info (Stand: 23. Juli 2019)
In den letzten Jahren habe ich aber gelernt, nicht zu sehr an Standards, Protokollen oder Technologien fest zu halten. OStatus wurde von ActivityPub eingeholt und aktuell ist GNU.social die einzige Plattform die ausschließlich auf OStatus setzt.

Zeit los zu lassen.
Ist ActivityPub die Zukunft?
Wie gerade schon geschrieben, ist es mir prinzipiell egal, welches Format sich durchsetzen wird. Mir ist nur wichtig dass sich ein Protokoll durchsetzt. Der Trend scheint zwar zu ActivityPub zu gehen… aber wer weiß?!?

Diaspora sieht bisher jedenfalls keinen Grund ActivityPub einzusetzen:

ActivityPub tries to work for everything and everyone. And because of that, they introduced a lot of flexibility and, sadly, a lot of ambiguity. Even though they tried, I found some reasons as for why we, as diaspora* developers, would not be able to build upon this new protocol without using heavily customized objects and activities.
Dennis Schubert in „ActivityPub – one protocol to rule them all?“
und vor ein paar Wochen habe ich außerdem gelesen, dass HubZilla versucht sein Protokoll Zot zu standardisieren:

Join the efforts to standardize the Zot protocol, currently used in Hubzilla and Zap platforms. This is a community initiative to push Zot adoption for federated social web.

Ich bin gespannt!

what I imagine is every hashtag being treated as a subreddit when you click on it. I guess we'd need to fork #mastodon.
 
I wish it was built into #mastodon.
 
Want to help make #Fediverse (#Mastodon) more useful for new people interested in #OpenStreetMap?

The #Trunk is several lists of people who post about a topic here on the fediverse. It's a good way for new people to get started by finding people who share their interest.

And now there's a list for OpenStreetMap folk! 🙂 If you toot a lot about #OSM and would like to help new people, request to be added to the list. Or use it to find other OSMers to follow.

My continued work on #Mastodon is possible thanks to these generous patrons:

Just a quick reminder:

If you're posting a link on Mastodon, remember to put "https://" at the beginning, otherwise it won't work as a link.

This also applies to links in your profile.

To !Friendica Support

I have litle bits problems.

For example, here I have changed my avatar on #Friendica, but in other networks ( like #mastodon ) still appears the original.

A colleague from another network changed the pseudonym, but I still see the original.

¿What's going on? ¿Can it be an error of this network, that some details are not displayed correctly?
 
Hmm, #mastodon question. If I toot with privacy set to followers-only, but mention someone in my toot who does not follow me. Can they still read/receive that toot?

If you want people to find your public posts on Mastodon or the rest of the Fediverse, there's something important you need to know:

📣 USE HASHTAGS!

For privacy reasons, the only way to search for posts on here is by hashtag. If you don't include tags, no one will see your post in searches.

Hashtags have to be spelt exactly, so #MastoTip and #MastoTips would bring up two separate sets of results. Include multiple tags if you're not sure.

People might also not know Mastodon is not the only type of social media sites that interact here.

There is also:

@pixelfed (Like Instagram)

Peertube (Like YouTube)

(You can see how they look in the pictures in the order that they are mentioned)

Schreibt doch mal unter dem Hashtag #ILikeMastodon und/oder #myMastodon, was euch hier bei Mastodon wirklich gut gefällt / was besser ist als in anderen Netzwerken. Würde mich interessieren was da so eure Schwerpunkte sind.

Write under the hashtag #ILikeMastodon and / or #myMastodon, what you really like here at Mastodon / which is better than in other networks. I would be interested in where your priorities are.

Did you know you can follow Pixelfed accounts from Mastodon?

Just paste the Pixelfed account's address into the Mastodon search box, click search, then click on the follow button.

Alternatively, if an account is already connected to your instance you can @ it directly.

A couple of days ago Paula shared her excellent #Pixelfed account:

@paulakreuzer

Are there other nice Pixelfed accounts people would recommend following?

If you're using Mastodon on a computer, did you know you can drag and drop files to attach them?

Start writing the toot, then drag a file into the box to attach it.

I've just seen someone I've blocked for a long time reply to one of my public posts.

Anyone know how is this possible? I thought blocking meant the blocked account couldn't see or reply to what I post?

(They're on a pleroma instance, I suspect they host it themselves.)

If you're using a computer, did you know you can control Mastodon through your keyboard?

You can find a list of keyboard commands by pressing "?"

Also, an additional command not listed there: you can use emoji by typing ":" and then a keyword (for example ":smile") and then selecting the emoji with the arrow keys.

My current nebulous thoughts on it all is that we (the FOSS/Fediverse community sort of people) need to figure out how to basically make it all like appliances that Just Work.

Things like the #freedombox are in the right direction, but the self-hosted services I'm interested in aren't all on that (yet?).

A more-or-less turnkey #nextcloud + #mastodon + ___ would almost do it for me. I can roll my own, but it gets tiring.

I haven't a clue how I'd replace Google Maps, though. :/
 
You can view all of a person's posts filtered by hashtag by adding "/tagged/" to the end of their public profile address, then adding the hashtag.

For example, here is a link to all of switching.social's posts tagged #MastoTips:

https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial/tagged/mastotips

This can be very useful for artists wanting to link to a portfolio, or writers wanting to link to articles about a topic.

You can also add these to your public profile page by going to Preferences > Edit Profile > Featured Hashtags

Have you ever clicked on an interesting account on Mastodon but it was empty, with hardly any posts or followers?

It might be that the account is very active, but your instance just hasn't updated its data about it yet because it's on another instance.

To see the latest info about an account, click on its profile picture to open its public page. This is hosted on its home instance, so it's up to date.

For example, switching.social's public page is https://mastodon.at/@switchingsocial

Wow the amount of silly this is is confusing.

You can start your own Mastodon instance even if you're not a techy person by using a managed hosting service like masto.host:

https://masto.host

They do all the technical stuff like installation, upgrades, server maintenance etc behind the scenes. You own the actual instance, and control what happens on it.

You can follow them at:

@mastohost

#MastoTips #Mastodon #FediTips
 
🚨 ⚠️ Instace owners,

Gab seems to be using the "exited.eu" domain name. Please block this ASAP.

#Fediverse #Gab #Mastodon
 
If you want to invite friends, family, colleagues, readers or anyone else to sign up on the same Mastodon instance as you, try using the invitation system:

1. Click on "invite people" in the bottom left corner of the page. (If you're on multicolumn, click on the "invite people" link at the bottom of the Getting Started tab.)

2. Choose your invitation settings (uses and expiration date)

3. Click "Generate", then send a copy of the link to the people you want to invite

This is a drum I keep beating: It's key to watch and be ready to counter the #Gab launch into the #fediverse July 4.

Here is where they think they will be at launch. Important that they still say there will be Apps supporting them in the App stores and a list is coming.

I'm sure none of this is news to most but wanted to keep an eye on it and share to #admins and to #Mastodon App developers. cc: @tootapp @tootleapp @JPEG @pixelfed @Gargron @Tusky

It just lacks the option to use your full display space in single-column view. Plus switching between single and multi column views could be made a one-click action instead being hidden in the settings. #Mastodon
 
I'm currently on a full HD resolution but the operating systems taskbar consumes about 80 pixels on the left. Roughly 640 pixels, which is a third of Full HD horizontal resolution, are wasted by #Mastodon. That's a lot.
 
First impressions of single-column interface: It's much faster but does not expand horizontally to fill the screen wasting tons of display space. :-( I'll still stick with it for now to get to know it better. #Mastodon
 
Happy Birthday - 9 Jahre Friendica

Vor 9 Jahren, am 1. Juli fiel der Startschuss (git push) für das großartige dezentrale soziale Netzwerk Friendica. Seither arbeiten Entwickler, Tester, Übersetzer und eine sehr tolle Community an der Weiterentwicklung dieser Plattform, deren Philosophie es unter anderem ist, mit so vielen anderen Plattformen wie möglich kommunizieren zu können.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch und vielen Dank für dieses tolle Projekt und eure Arbeit. 🌻🚀🎊🎉

Happy Birthday Friendica!

Many thanks to all who have contributed, the active and the alumni! <3 No matter how big the contribution was.

If you're on an instance running the latest version of Mastodon, you may have noticed the image attachment button has turned into a paperclip 📎

This is because you can now attach lots of different kinds of media: images, video and audio 👍

The supported file types are:

JPEG/PNG/GIF for images

MP4/WEBM/MOV for video

MP3/WAV/OGG/FLAC for audio

There's a size limit of 8 megabytes on images and 40 megabytes on video/audio.

Content warning: Personal opinions about Mastodon's light mode & single column mode

 
[en]#Diffu is a Free Software allowing authors to publish all kinds of texts or articles and to aggregate the reactions they generate on social networks, especially through #ActivityPub such as #Mastodon, #PeerTube, #Pleroma, #PixelFed, #Funkwhale, #Hubzilla, #GNUSocial ...

Diffu is a kind of free and federated alternative to #Medium or other applications that are not always easy to install.

To develop it, we launch a crowdfunding campaign

https://www.ulule.com/diffu/?lang=en

ReToot are welcome 😉 !
 
Thanks. I'm looking at whether FreedomBox or FreedomBone is preferable. The latter allows installation of #Friendica and #Hubzilla both of which federate with #Diaspora and #Mastodon.
 
Is anyone using #FreedomBox? I’m just interested to see if it’s popular. I also note that they are planning to bundle #Diaspora* and #Mastodon with it so that you can set up your own pod or instance.

Did you know you can embed toots from Mastodon on other websites and blogs?

Just click the "..." at the bottom of a toot and select "embed" to get the HTML code.

Here's an example of it in action:

Did you know you can search and type emojis on Mastodon just using your keyboard?

1. Type a : (colon) with a keyword straight after it with no spaces. This will automatically bring up relevant emojis.

2. You can select one with the arrow keys and the enter key.

That's it! 🎉

#Mastodon v2.9.1 is out 🎉

https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.9.1

A new moderation API, audio uploads, and domain blocks that extend to subdomains automatically
 
Mastodon has a dark theme by default, but have you tried the light theme?

It's especially good on the latest update (version 2.9 and above).

1. Click on Preferences

2. Click on Appearance (if necessary, not always needed)

3. Set "Site Theme" to "Mastodon Light"

4. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "Save changes"

5. Click "Back to Mastodon"

And that's it 👍
