Sorry, I did take the time to appreciate how snappy the last update was, but I haven't been vocal about it.

I'm going to toggle a few switches and see what happens. Is it normal if I can't fetch a post through another instance (Firefish)? Is the federation still disabled?

Thanks in advance!

@Oceane thanks <3 

ps we've added an info label at the bottom of the right sidebar, that indicates the instance federation status - so that users are aware of that specific instance setting 😉

@Oceane We have indeed been optimising the speed of both the backend and UI, glad it is bearing fruit 😅

The other milestone we're working on is federation, for which we introduced 3 different settings: github.com/bonfire-networks/...

Currently federation is locked down on here while we optimise some more things (like limiting how many replies are automatically fetched in threads) and then we'll change it to on-demand.

@ivan Hmm so now I'm just replying to you by default?

Yep, it might be the 7th time both Doug and I get mentioned in a thread about this (generally, I mention him)

On a network of 3 millions of users, with a strong “Mozilla Firefox” culture, you could generate a few millions of dollars a year of revenue with that right?

They should be paying you to develop it

BTW when the instance is set to on-demand users can still lock down federation for themselves, and when federation is enabled they can set themselves to on-demand or disabled. This is currently the only exception to all admin settings being fully overridable by users [besides the more obvious ones in "instance configuration" such as instance name and max file upload size].
