Toot fixado

Hi, y'all!

If you're in an instance that is not suspended by masto.donte.com.br and you still see "Sorry, <instance> is blocked in this instance" when you try to login to the crossposter then most likely the crossposter was blocked by your admin and we blocked back to avoid getting infinite retries on our side.

Toot fixado

🇬🇧 When the crossposter finds an issue posting your status, it can decide it's a temporary issue (network issues, mastodon instance down) and retry later, or decide it's a permanent issue (token expired, user suspended, twitter marks the profile as spam) and disable crossposting for your user.

The retry time increases (first retry in a few seconds, second a few minutes, few hours, many hours, etc) and after two weeks or so, it gives up and marks as a permanent failure.

Toot fixado

🇬🇧 Hey, y'all! The crossposter should never take more than a few minutes to crosspost your statuses, in either direction. If it's been more than 10 minutes there's an issue. I check it from time to time, but you can also get in touch and I'll check :)

🇧🇷 Oi, povo! O crossposter nunca demora mais que alguns minutos pra postar em qualquer direção. Se tem mais de 10 minutos, tem um problema. Eu olho de tempos em tempos, mas você também pode me mandar uma mensagem pra checar :)

Hey again, folks!

The issue should be resolved and the duplication should now stop. The issue was caused by a dependency upgrade yesterday at about 8h30 CST and I didn't detect the issues until some of you started pinging me about it today.

I implemented one extra check so that even if the problem happens again in the future, which should not be the case, it should have a smaller impact.

Sorry for the disruption!

Hey folks, I'm aware that the crossposter seems to be sometimes duplicating posts coming from Twitter. I'll try to take a look at it as soon as I have some time!

-- @renatolond

Hey, folks!
I've done a fairly large dependency upgrade on the crossposter. No feature change, but if you see something weird, don't hesitate to ping me.
If you have admin an instance, don't forget to check the CHANGELOG to see what you need to do for upgrading :)

-- @renatolond

Hey, folks!

I've decided to suspend mamot.fr from using the crossposter.

I know we have quite a few users of the crossposter over there. I've waited a few days to see if the moderation would take action but since it's not the case, that's the only course of action I see.

I'm open to review this decision if/when moderation improves.

Hey, folks!

Thanks to @singingwolfboy

The default is what the option from before, only the CW plus a link, but now you can also add the content or only add the content.

The choice is over at the advanced options crossposter.masto.donte.com.br

As usual, let me know if you run into problems!

-- @renatolond

Hey, folks!

A heads-up: it seems Twitter added some new mechanism to detect "unwanted" URLs. It seems they detect some mastodon instance URLs as one of those URLs. This will stop the crossposting to post over to twitter any toot bigger than Twitter's limit.

If you are not seeing your toots being posted even if everything is enabled, check if you're not in this situation.

Hey, folks!
Something was locking up the jobs in the crossposter queue. I'm going to look into it later, but I've restarted and it should be back to normal now. Sorry for the inconvenience!
-- @renatolond

(en) Hey folks! We've been noticing that twitter seems to be lightly locking accounts when there's only "automated" access. If you have the crossposter connected to your account, log in the web interface from time to time to avoid this from happening.

(pt) Oi, povo! Notamos que o twitter parece estar travando levemente contas só com acesso "automatizado". Se você tem o crossposter conectado a sua conta, entre na web de tempos em tempos pra evitar o problema.

-- @renatolond

(en) Hey folks! We fixed a bug when you tried to quote a tweet long urls, it was being dropped by the crossposter for being considered too long. URLs should be correctly treated now :)

(pt) Oi gente! Consertei um bug com citações com urls longas, antes a citação não era postada. Agora urls devem ser tratadas normalmente :)

-- @renatolond

(en) Hey folks! I've just did an upgrade to the library that we use to access mastodon and twitter. It should be fine, but as usual, if you see any issues in the coming days, let me know :)

(pt) Oi, povo! Eu acabei de fazer uma atualização da biblioteca que o crossposter usa pra acessar o mastodon e o twitter. Deve ser livre de problemas, mas como de costume, se você ver problemas nos próximos dias, me avise!

-- @renatolond

Hey, folks!
If you use the crossposter in the twitter -> mastodon direction, what do you crosspost the most? Do you use for crossposting everything, or mostly for stuff that does not have a mastodon app (Switch screenshots and similar stuff)?

Hey, y'all! I've done some upgrades on the crossposter! If you see anything strange, please let me know :)

Oi, povo! Eu fiz algumas atualizações no crossposter! Se você notar qualquer coisa estranha, me avise!

-- @renatolond

Hey Switter folks!
I can't seem to get to Switter from the crossposter server, I'll try to get in touch with the admins to see if there's an issue or if the crossposter was blocked, but in the meantime your tweets and toots are not being crossposted. Sorry!

Hey, y'all!

Maintenance is over and everything should be fine again. Let me know if you run into any problems!

He, folks!

I'm starting maintenance in the server where the crossposter is hosted. It might be a bit unstable until it's finished. I will let you know as soon as it's done :)

Hey, y'all!
Made some changes so that domains blocked in the configuration of the crossposter also block sub-domains! Also blocked by default gab and kiwifarms known-addresses.

Besides, two new languages were added on our weblate: Indonesian and Chinese (Traditional), thanks to ditokp and Jeff Huang!

Hey, Switter folks!

It seems that after Switter upgraded, the issues the crossposter had with it from time to time stopped happening (like sometimes failing to post images and other intermittent issues)

As usual, if you have an issue you can always get in touch!

-- @renatolond

Hey, folks!
The issue should be over and the crossposter normalized! Let me know if you see any issues!

Hey, y'all!
There's an issue with our provider and the crossposter is offline at the moment. As soon as I have more news I'll let you know!
