Actual admin announcement
Due to a recent events and overall security, we will be turning on authorized fetch soon so if your instance isnt running version 3.0 of Mastodon you'll essentially be defederated. So ask your admins to update, or make an alt or something, by Saturday 1/18!
@ldopa do u know whether that is compatible with the glitch social fork?
@ldopa note that the incompatibilities are not that bad
it means people running something that doesn't sign fetches will be unable to see toots that weren't explicitly sent to the instance (either because there were followers or they were mentioned), so they're likely to miss out on boosts and forwarded replies, but will still be able to interact otherwise
@ldopa i was convinced this meant "post one of eighteen"
@pineappleface @ldopa @squeakypancakes not sure. We're thinking of moving to Hometown, the fork of Mastodon that adds features, but I individually consider our federation with myass to be of greater importance. Squeaks, d'you think we should get @kawaiipunk's tech co-op involved? At the very least they could perhaps do our move and updates and get Plume running, all in one go? It seems a perfect moment to call on them.
@darius does Hometown support authorized fetch?
@zxv Hometown is up to date with Mastodon 3.0.1 (assuming you have the latest Hometown, v1.0.3+3.0.1) so if Mastodon 3+ has it, so does Hometown
the admin of radical.town @cambrian_era recently turned on authorised fetch and we can still view their posts
not that this means we shouldn't upgrade to v3 as soon as posible of cause
