Community Guidlines


!iSurf Support Is there a page of rules and community guidelines for this server for reference?

Mostly just having proper netiquette. Good to hear. Thanks for sharing that. Just out of curiosity too, if users wanted to help with funding and paying for the server space is there a way to do that, like a patreon? Found one instance that did that and thought it was nice idea letting it's users help out that way.

Hey, no problem - it's something I should get on soon, and glad you asked!

I have only put cursory thought in to fundraising as well (it's almost like there's a pattern here...), and I think it may well be a good idea to do to keep the doors open for new people (I can turn off new registrations at any time if I needed to due to user load, but I would only want to do so temporarily if/when it comes to that). There isn't currently a place to do so for this node, but if I decide to get one going, I will be looking to do so in a way that is as non-obtrusive as possible.



 

right_aside element and mobile view


!iSurf Support Is there a reason why the "right aside" element isn't shown in the mobile view of the page? At least having the "Find people" section ("peoplefind-sidebar") accessible without having to go through the Contacts page (where it's still hidden behind the collapsed left-side menu) would be helpful. Thanks!
I didn't know if that was something pod specific. Thanks!



 

G+ Mirror


!iSurf Support

I love that this works! It is going to provide users with a nice way to transition from G+. One thing I noticed is the timing. Sometimes it takes a long time to see the post on Friendica. What controls this?

The function for pulling the feeds from G+ has a built-in 30 minute timeout on it, so it may appear to take some time if you post something and there's another 28 minutes to go before the node polls for it.

Having a look at the Google+ API quotas it looks like it can handle a lot more - I've just changed it down to 10 minutes, so things should likely appear more quickly more often now. We'll see how long it takes for the new setting to take hold. I'll check on this in a bit.

Looks like the delay is still about 30 minutes. But at least I've confirmed that (a) it's working, and (b) posts made to public Collections also come through.

Ok so I should expect to see mirrors in 10 minutes after a G+ post. Thanks!



 

Server moved!


!iSurf Support

It worked? It worked!

Well, time will tell, but things seem to be fine so far. Bigger, better server, plus a geography change to Toronto, which now puts this node in to a bit better jurisdiction for privacy concerns.

Please let me know if you see any issues!
Yep it worked! 🙂

Your directory is still in California or now in Toronto too?



 

Moving this node to Toronto soon


!iSurf Support

Hi all,

After much thought about growing this node, I've decided to move VPS providers and move the node from California to Toronto (then it truly will be a .ca, heh).

I'll make a quick post when I'm about to start the move, but I wanted to give advance notice that sometime in the next several days this will occur, and it will likely mean a bit of extended maintenance time. I will be doing some test runs and I expect to keep the move to about 15 minutes, but as there is a DNS change involved, you may continue connecting to the old location for an extended period of time, which would continue to show you the site as being in maintenance mode.

More to come soon!
