@lynnesbian that's really cool
@lynnesbian Why does it require me to both log in with mastodon *and* create a local account? You'd think one of the two would be enough
@embr yeah i guess so. i can't remember why i chose this but i did
@lynnesbian now it's 502ing trying to connect to a curiouscat account :(
@embr aaa i'm so sorry i thought it would work right off the bat
try going to /home and redoing the connection process
@embr just checked the database and it looks like it went through successfully actually
@lynnesbian it seems to have connected anyway??
@lynnesbian I think the link to the code is missing the "lynnesbian" before the repo :)
@renatolond oh oops! thank you!
@lynnesbian Could you add an option to CW the crossposts? That way less timeline real estate would be taken up when people are on a question answering spree.
@Robby yeah the option's there but it's disabled by default
i just enabled it uwu
@lynnesbian oh, thanks. :) hope i didn't offend you, i do enjoy your CC.
@Robby no problem~
@lynnesbian thanks for making this lynne, you're cool!
@lynnesbian I'm getting a 500 error "The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application."
@realmaxkeeble hmmmm ok jeez
@realmaxkeeble that's strange, i can't reproduce ;-;
@lynnesbian upon retry, i'm only getting it with octodon. Knzk and mastodon.social work fine
@realmaxkeeble huh weird. that must be an error with octodon, then... idk
@lynnesbian if you need a hand hmu, I'm quite well versed in bending servers to my will :P
@lynnesbian it's ok!
@lynnesbian nobody in the history of computers has ever launched something that worked perfectly on day one
I do this shit for a living, launch days are *always* "hotfix all the bugs you never saw in staging" days
and that's with people who've done this before, *everyone's* first application crashes horribly right away
@lynnesbian Oh, and: the real world is fucking weird.
I work for a bank. The last "big" project I was a part of launching had a bug where you just, couldn't buy anything from this one, random Japanese tour guide. I was late at the office the last day of the beta, before it rolled out to everyone in the morning, trying to fix that.
It turns out this *one website* ran software that rejected all messages that didn't put the fields in the *exact order they're listed in the protocol specification*.
@lynnesbian Oh and I got there in the morning, after *months* of testing to try to stamp out bugs before we switched everyone onto it.
The moment we hit ship, a bunch of shit broke, because computers are extremely bad.
@lynnesbian this is precisely how you learn, hand in there
@lynnesbian tfw you wonder if this is an xkcd snowclone or not
@a_breakin_glass unfortunately not
@lynnesbian anything similar for retrospring? I don't use any Q and A sites like that, but I've seen both Curious Cat and Retrospring being used on fediverse
@a_breakin_glass yeah i'm gonna add retrospring support eventually c:
@lynnesbian you're the fucking best omg
@lynnesbian curious catposter
@lynnesbian does it automatically come with a cw?
@Bisexuhell yes i'm in the process of enabling that now
@lynnesbian im user!!!!
@lynnesbian the ability to manually go up and down by a single number is really really tempting me to waste my god damn time going up by like every single number
1. would it have worked if I entered lubar.me instead of mastodon.lubar.me
2. if so, can you fix it on your end
1. i have no idea
2. maybe i can i don't know
log out too~

Time to dissect your code and see if I can fix it from my end...
