I’m aware image uploads are still broken. There is nothing i can do right now, unfortunately, as it is due to our service provider (Wasabi). Sorry for the inconvenience. I intend to change the service provider as soon as possible and have made preparations for it.

Posted this on FB recently, should have copied it here to, tnx for pointing out @suzan:

Djoerd added a few bots to the IDF.social mastodon service - makes it much more informative than just the posts from the three active users or so :-)

Please re-evaluate this much better alternative for Twitter (and maybe even Facebook), I am happy to hand out accounts to anyone interested in trying it out for a while.

See idf.social/public for an impression of what your timeline would look like.

♲ @hq@socialhome.network: Oh hello, #ActivityPub people

socialhome.network/media/uploa…



We just turned on ActivityPub support at socialhome.network to get more users to test it and thus speed up fixing the remaining issues and bringing better compatibility across other #Fediverse platforms.

PLEASE NOTE, this are a bit alpha still, so in the master branch by default ActivityPub support is off. It can be turned on by setting the environment variable SOCIALHOME_ACTIVITYPUB_ALPHA=True.

Issue reports very much welcome in the issue tracker. git.feneas.org/socialhome/soci…
