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"

@hirojin @ldopa there is only one admin on fedi who posts 18 toots in a row

@seafrog @ldopa in fairness credit goes to mastohost but I will graciously accept on their behalf :mr_blobby:

@ldopa @puffinus_puffinus it looks like we're still on 2.9.2 - any plans to upgrade soon?

@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.

@killeveryhetero Zoey I love the myass users. Please don't break us up 💔💔

@ItsJenNotGabby @killeveryhetero ooh its apparently already on now and i could still see this! :blobsmilehappyeyes:

@ldopa @killeveryhetero yayyyyy!!

I am so glad Zoey knows what she's doing because I supremely do not and she makes it great and easy to be here

@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

@darius the fork would suit us better, thanks for developing it :)

@puffinus_puffinus @zxv @darius i think our current version of mastodon signs things in the way authorised fetch requires

the admin of @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

@radikalgrafitio that's good i guess. we should still get on with the stuff if possible though
