Hey, y'all :)
We're now in 3.2.0 :)

It has lots of stuff, but my favorites are:
- Toot visibility is now visible on the timeline
- You can now add personal notes to accounts (only visible for you)
- New audio player design
- Select an emoji with ctrl to keep the picker open

The complete notes can be seen here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I'm still regenerating the search, so no text search for now.

Hey folks!

I'm silencing mastodon.cloud because of issues with lack of moderation [1].
I will ban then in a week, if you still follow folks over there, you have this time to try to figure out a solution without loosing their posts.

Hey, y'all!
Due to paper that surfaced this weekend [1] which scraped posts from several instances without authorization, I'm enabling mastodon's "secure mode" which tries to add an extra layer of security for requests.
It might make servers pre-3.0 have troubles communicating with lewd.town.
If you have any troubles, let me know :)

- Dropped support for OStatus protocol, which means, there's no more way to talk to GNUSocial instances
- There's now an audio player in the UI

And a lot of more stuff, that can be seen over here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I'm still regenerating the search. If you see any troubles, let me know!

Hey, folks!

I'll be doing maintenance in the lewd.town server tomorrow morning, at around 8h30 Brussels time time.is/0830_31_Jan_2019_in_Br

The maintenance should last at most for 2h, and during that time lewd.town will be unavailable via web and apps.

During the maintenance window you can get in touch with me at my other @.
