i've made a regex filter that will remove the fake mentions that appear at the start of ebooks bot posts. this behaviour will be optional, but it's been lacking from mstdn-ebooks for a while.
preliminary testing using starwall-e
looks like it works! it's not generating any fake mentions anymore!
it's now possible to prevent your bot from creating fake mentions.
if i host your bot, and you'd like it to stop creating fake mentions, let me know!
if you (or someone else) run your own bot, you'll need to:- update the bot to the latest version, preferably via git- run main.py once- edit config.json so that "mention_handling" is 0
