Yesterday we had a #pedophile site removed from #Diaspora. If you click a NSFW link and find child related material please at least it report to your #podmin immediately. Better to be wrong in this instance.

Mailer doesn't work in #Pod

Hello fellow #podmins,

I'm trying to set-up the email sender in #Diaspora but I can't make it work. I would appreciate your help! Down here are the relevant errors and config files. The changes I do to diaspora.yml doesn't look like making any difference.

RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails runner 'Notifier.admin("test message", User.where(username: "leviatan89")).each(&:deliver_now)'

Tis the season to help your #diasporg #podmin raise the cash to pay the server for the year! I started the normal PBS style marathon on the top of the screen, it goes away when we hit the goal! Thanks everyone that can help diasp.org pay it's bills for 2018.

As you can see today the new server is much faster and the experience is not as long to get the data to load, that raised the bills just a hair, but other things like free SSL certs offsets a lot of that!

A lot of options for diasp.org users to help out: https://diasp.org/supportyourpod

(wonder who will catch my bad math this morning, pre-coffee division not my game) #diaspora #donate #supportyourpod

Cheers to another great year!

#podmin #question

Did any of you podmins receive a mail from your hoster that a company named BitNinja raised a complain about your IP address?

I received such a complain today where BitNinja claims that my server is infected and performs "unwanted connections" to their customers. They provided a "report" which should substantiate their claim.

All logs were normal HTTP GETS (evil attack!!!): 92 GETS in 20 months (DDOS!!!) and all performed by OpenGraph oder CAMO image proxy.

Anyone else received this crap? BTW, after my statement my hoster closed the complain ;-)


This pod has been steadily growing it's audience and active members and for that I'm very happy! Give you all a pat in the back! I'll keep doing my best to maintain and improve this pod. #diaspora #podmin #user #happy #pod


How can I add or search for new #Followed tags on the mobile version? I see the "Add a tag" input box only on the regular version, but not on the mobile version. Thanks. #diaspora #question #help #podmin #admin #tags #mobile

Active Pods list and diapod.net server have run largely untended since being move six months ago. Today at last was upgraded the Ubuntu LTS version 12.04 to 14.04 and pulled was the latest diaspora* from the develop branch! :) There are a dozen or more issues remaining to hobby with. Next on the wish list, as time permits, i'd like to fix up the SSL certificate for diapod.net and convert the bits of Active Pods which are trying to use the obsolete statistics.json toward using nodeinfo instead. #diaspora #podmin #podmins

Was there a #glitch for some time on #diasp_eu? Posts were beiing displayed full-width for several days and the sidebar was only displayed at the top of the screen? Not a serious issue but I'm curious whether others also observed this? Also, notifications were not displaying properly.

#Question #Podmin


Diaspora Software Hair-Pullers

Just my current list. (alt link)

Whenever I suggest some of these to a #podmin it's like asking Obama if Obamacare can be made better (read that: Quite unpleasant to do).

Just tonight I, and others who had lost ALL of their data when their pod went belly-up, was told how wonderful that the "Data" Export feature is.

Note -- it only exports your profile page and contacts; and there's no way to even load it into another pod. (And this was a "funded" feature request).

Oh, but that's just one thing on my list...

If these guys weren't so #pissy -- I'd be willing to help them.

Holy crap the #diaspora upgrade took nearly two hours to complete. I don't know what that database update was (CleanupRootGuidsFromReshares), but it could stand some improvement. #podmin
