I'm a bit hesitating to invest further on this Mastodon instance though I should probably upgrade its AWS. 1GB memory seems not enough for Docker deploy and do other stuff.
Also, I figure out Let's Encrypt is kind of defacto to get A+ on SSL.
Not sure about Federated timeline though. I see some toots from outside network. Maybe just we haven't followed many, so only few toots are coming up...?
Hmm, uploading image and changing avatar seems working :grinning:
My simple idea → a bot crawl the Local timeline and find newcomers (their first toot) and "boost" them. ("reblog" in the Mastodon API world)
Maybe the bot tries to connect those newcomers with mentioning.
Great, I got mastodon api library working with my access token. Always a bit of headache to work with OAuth...
I've been thinking how on-boarding on Mastodon could look like. One lesson from the old birdsite is that "who to follow" should be fixed. I am looking for interactions, not news/celebrities.
Ah. So to do "Remote Follow" you have to enter your instance name.
