With each new #Facebook scandal like the recent WhatsApp-related one, the #Fediverse welcomes a wave of new users and admins. #Friendica gets its tiny share of the newly converted to decentralized social media. Some stick, most don't, but there's always this one guy (it's always a man) whose first few messages on GitHub are to angrily complain that Friendica isn't user-friendly enough and that it is spelling doom for a project they didn't know the day before and for the #Fediverse as a whole.

This has been going on ever since I joined the project in 2016, and we're still here. 🤷‍♂️
Hmmm, it's surely possible to subscribe to RSS Feeds. See all the news bots out there, for example. Only thing in Friendica is (by purpose), that you can subscribe to your own feeds. An example: I'm interested in #retrocomputing, so I follow that hashtag feed, but what is generated from that hashtag can't be posted into my account, because that will cause a feedback loop or so.

Anyway, some more hints & tips: it massively helps when you use hashtags like #ActivityPub, #friendica or #wordpress. Second, there is a
forum where someone might be able to help or maybe explain things and how they work/are implemented.

Hello !Friendica Support,

As I just noticed, my own public posts do not appear on the /community page on my server.

Help setting up VSCode to work on Friendica

!Friendica Support
Can someone help me setup #VSCode to work for friendica? I have some extensions that changes quotes, etc and I don't want to disable/enable my extensions every time I switch project. I want to respect the devs preferred code specs.

I have Vetur, Prettier and ESLint. When I save a file every single quotes are changed to double quotes 😛.

[Hope this works I never used friendica before, not sure how to post to forum lol]

Da die letzte Folge zum #Fediverse #Podcast #besser nun fast schon 2 Jahre alt ist und sich mittlerweile einiges getan hat, würde ich gerne eine kleine Updatefolge produzieren.

Da so ein Update jede Menge Arbeit bedeutet habe ich eine Bitte:
Habt ihr Infos oder gute Quellen mit Zusammenfassungen!! , was sich in den letzten 2 Jahren bei den einzelnen Projekten wie #Friendica #Hubzilla #Pleroma #Mastodon #PeerTube #Pixelfed #Funkwhale #Nextcloud oder anderen interessanten Projekten getan hat?

Bitte keine Links auf Changelogs schicken, die lese ich schon. Daher meine Frage nach Zusammenfassungen oder guten Stichwortartigen Infos.

Oder besteht kein Interesse an so einem Update?
I deleted about 90 users, which gave me 180000 tasks in the queue. Didn't think about that before, but that will take a few hours now.

Just to report back. Since the update to 2021.01 I don't have to restart php constantly any more. #Friendica is faster and makes more fun than ever.

Thanks to all the developers and contributors.
I was just wondering why my #Friendica server was so damn slow, then remembered that I kept the logging on with the highest verbosity, which basically writes all incoming data into the log plus more diagnostic data. So it will increase disk IO to at least 200%, I think even more.

So !Friendica Admins turn off logging if not needed, this will make your server faster.
Houston we have a problem!

Today I created a test user to try if my Twitter connector is working (fun thing, it is working on the second attempt to connect, on the first it was read only).

Now after the test was finished I deleted the user via the /remove me function, I entered the password and pressed the button there. Now the user is still shown in /admin/users and it can't be deleted by me (the admin).

However the user shows up in /admin/users/deleted and it says will be deleted. So it seems it is only a cosmetic thing. Also I have the option (trash can button) to delete other users.

I don't care in that particular case, but it seems something there is b0rken.

This is how it looks:

Never mind the red arrow.

Hello !Friendica Support, quick question regarding the nickname.

Can the #Friendica nickname be changed?

In /help I see:

A nickname is used to generate web addresses for many of your personal pages, and is also treated like an email address when establishing communications with others. Due to the way that the nickname is used, it has some limitations. It must contain only US-ASCII text characters and numbers, and must also start with a text character. It also must be unique on this system. This is used in many places to identify your account, and once set it cannot be changed.

So this is still correct, right?
Strange preview in one of my posts.

After I saw the preview I edited the post, on one hand to see if the post really contained a link to the previewed page, on the other hand because it contained a misspelled word.

After editing I saw this:

The square is an empty iframe it seems:

Also something seems wrong with the cookies we use, so soon it seems these cookies will be blocked, then staying logged in will not be possible anymore... maybe...

Hello all,
if embedding (previews) of links is not working for you in #Friendica, no matter if #Twitter links or some other previews, you have to deactivate the Twitter addon and activate it again, this solves the problem and afterwards you get nice emedded previews for links again!

!Friendica Support
!Friendica Support is there still a working way to embed Twitter/Nitter links in #Friendica so there is a preview shown? Do I need to change some setting or use some special bb code?
Hello !Friendica Support,

Registration on my server is open by approval. However, at the moment it is not possible not to approve the registration, because unfortunately nothing happens when I press the Deny button on the /admin/users/pending page. The contact remains in the list.

@Clarice Boomshakalaka Bouvier Well .. my nickname is already included twice ...... I opened a actually unused #friendica account somewhere, just called "hackbyte (friendica neu)" (friendica new) ....... and even that funnily got incorporated in his actual target list........ ;)
Well, I have updated #Friendica #Hubzilla #Misskey #Gitea and the #MinIO file storage server and some #Nextcloud apps. Just the normal after-hours occupation of a hobby admin. 🛠️ 😁
Someone should program a nice app for #Friendica, at least a web app, or pickup #DiCa or #Friendiqa maybe.
I opened a new issue for #Friendica on github, an issue about the contact avatar getting lost when following a new person.

Hello !Friendica Support,
Can someone tell my why the matrix room names are broken on Friendica, but are fine in the source post on Mastodon?
The post here on Friendica and here on Mastodon and compare the matrix room names on one the name are broken, some part is missing. Is this some strange bug?

Btw. this would be a cool storage backend for #Friendica too. 😀

Despite server block posts have arrived

Hello !Friendica Support,

i have blocked the server, nevertheless i receive posts from this server that contain hashtags that i follow. I think that this behavior is a #bug. When I block a server, I don't want to receive posts from it.

My #Friendica server has about 120 user accounts that are not mine. 3 days ago I ran the Friendica Cleanup script for the first time. I changed some things in it to only notify people but don't delete any accounts.

It sent 66 notifications, meaning 66 accounts of that 120 did not login within the last 6 months. Since then on of the notified users logged in again in order to keep the account, as explained in the email.

On my server the active accounts within the last month were 15%, according to The Federation.
