An (incomplete) post-mortem on recent federation problems there (1/?)
This instance has faced federation problems for the past months (almost a year). Some other instances unfederated from it. Here is a brief outline of what happened:
* Originally (since its establishment in August 2018), this instance had open registrations. Anybody could register.
* On March 13, 2019, a new user @email@example.com registered there. It posted three toots during its life (I cannot recover the exact dates now)...
Sorry, had a small downtime because of https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/14131
Everything should work now.
Hi! I've noticed on your "about" page (https://lgbt.io/about/more) that you have limited federation with this instance (embracing.space). I have no idea why, I've never received any moderation report from you, and I'd hate to be in the same list as gab. Could you please explain why did that happen?
Hi! While I've been cleaning my instance, I came upon your moderation alert: https://beach.city/@moderation_alerts/103024097829866681
(As a side note, it does indeed seem to be a follow bot, and with that follow list, this account alone consumed ~98% of my instance resources and turned our federated timeline into garbage)
But sadly I've never received any moderation report from you. Not sure if that's how it's supposed to be, or some problem with federation?
PSA: Почему-то на этом инстансе в Federated Timeline огромное количество франкоязычных сообщений. Крайне рекомендую всем проставить в настройках, сообщения на каком языке вы хотите видеть в federated timeline. Тогда всё лишнее будет скрыто.
К сожалению, эти настройки должны проставить вы вручную, сделать их "по умолчанию" нельзя.
