Woat apparently the @QOTO group had a nice little boost of membership last night. Something like 25 new users joined the group.

Awesome to see the groups taking off, welcome!

@QOTO

If you moderate one of the groups at groups.qoto.org here is one useful tip.

You can add posts to the group by manually boosting them. Similarly posts made directly from the group account wont show in the group, if you wish for it to show in the group you must immediately boost your own post.

@QOTO

Just a heads up, the QOTO group server has been up and running without any problems for about a day and a half now. Looks like it is turning out to be pretty stable.

If you haven't already registered and reserved your group name feel free to do so here: groups.qoto.org

If you want some information on how it works and the rules, which you should do before signing up, see here: groups.qoto.org/about/more

Love the idea of this group

The group @theamazingweb that @digital_carver started. All those cool little hard to define web sites from around the internet you may have forgotten about. I have a feeling there is going to be some really interesting posts to that group!

Who to Thank for the Group Server

We released a lot of new features recently, most notably the managed groups server, groups directory, and markdown formatting in posts (see groups.qoto.org ).

A lot of people have asked if I coded it myself and I just wanted to take a minute to say while I did do the final leg of work ultimately needed to make these features possible, this is open-source, and therefore 99% of the work done was done by others, I am simply standing on their shoulders. Aside from a few days of work on my part try to remember people like @Gargron and @noellabo and the other mastodon contributors (sorry I donโ€™t really know who all the main contributors are) are the ones who spent many months of their lives doing all the work that made what I did possible.

So while I appreciate the thanks for my part in this, if you really appreciate all the new features please donโ€™t forget to thank the mastodon devs either, if it werenโ€™t for them this wouldnโ€™t be possible.

The fediverseโ€™s first public Managed Group Server is live!

Sign up while all the good names are available *

You can go to groups.qoto.org and register for a group. But be sure to read the about/more page first to understand how it works! groups.qoto.org/about/more

Anyway, as far as I know this is the first time the fediverse has had an open, managed group server.

QOTO also has the group directory. Attached is what the group directory, and a group timeline looks like on QOTO, but we did some streamlining, your client may render groups differently and most wont have the directory, which is a federated list of active groups.

Anyway, anyone who wants a group, go sign up for one! Its open now!

Managed Groups Feature

YAY! I finally got the email confirmations working on the group server. that is the last of the bugs/features, it is now ready for opening to the public. Later today anyone interested in registering for a managed group can do so.

Only thing i have to do now is fill in the policies and about page, fix the headers on the load balancer to pass in the ip address and it will go live.

Stay tuned the server should be open for registration in about an hour. Hello managed groups fediverse!

Sort of.. I've had to make several code changes so far.. I just released a new fix a few minutes ago. I think this fix should be the final step to get it working as I intended.

Ah, I see, thank you.

It's odd that the Light theme displays properly, while the Dark Theme, wide screen shows this.

@freemo @hansw @QOTO
I went back to Light Theme in the Private Window, and copied a screenshot of just the inner post.

The quoted block -- it's delimited by a BlockQuote, closed at the end of the text. Text highlighted in Blue.

@design_RG

The themes have no ability to have any effect on the html itself. You should fnd the html identical at all times across themes. Themes literally are just defined as CSS files and have no html associated with them.

@design_RG

going to have to find a way to pretify that but it might help thanks. I suspect the issue is more likely ont he css side than in the html itself though

> Thing is if i cant replicate the issue its really hard to investigate. If i were on Rob's computer id pull up the inspection tool and look to see if the HTML has the right tags and what css it is seeing and rendering, but I cant do that from my end if the issue doesnt get replicated here

I copied and pasted the post html for that -- see if it helps. Sorry as it is messy,
