Mokum budget update: we've spent all the euro part of last year's donations. We spend almost exactly €200 per month, averaged for the last 13 months (it did not change since the last report). 50% of Bitcoin donations (0.10615 BTC) was sold on October 20th which resulted in €582.98. This will be enough till the end of 2018. Then the rest of Bitcoin donations will be sold and this hopefully will be enough till 2038 or, in the more probable case, till March 2019. So, the next fundraising event will happen around February. Thank you for your support!

Dear friends, it is now possible to download everything you've posted to Mokum as a single Zip archive. Archive contains machine-readable JSON files in a simple format, containing entries from your feed, your private subfeed, direct messages, image attachments, list of faved posts and your text pages. https://mokum.place/takeout This archive could be used as your own backup copy; to create a version of your feed for offline reading; to allow migrating to a different platform or just leaving the service without losing your content.

Mokum maintenance budget proposal, March 2019 — March 2020. We need to raise €2734: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nieElaBbBYwJMlMa2e9iX6BZ8ObTEmjRYOUZRQxRyGE/edit#gid=0 Nothing new, we have some vague ideas of moving to containers but it's not clear how it's going to affect cost anyway. The Paypal Button and BTC address will be announced a bit later. Comments welcome. Thank you, #mokum-budget

For absolutely no reason at all Mokum suddenly has a privacy policy: https://mokum.place/about/privacy-policy. If you have any questions or suggestions please comment here or in @support. Thanks.

You forgot the obvious one: The content of any post or comment you make on the service, how long you keep backups of them, who you share that content with (link to instructions related to privacy controls, private subfeeds, etc.) You should also link to Google Analytics privacy policy in the appropriate section.

We need to do regular "did you know" reminders about Mokum features. The topic for today is "private subfeed". Please share/translate this link for your community if you think this could be useful. Even if you have a public account, you can have another sub-feed, which is always private. You can enable your private sub-feed on "Settings" page. You can post to your private sub-feed by clicking at "Private sub-feed" link in the right column (or at the bottom, if you're on a mobile device). You can request subscription to other people's private sub-feed if you know its URL.

Comment

You can invite users to your private sub-feed on your "Settings" page, see "Invite users to your private sub-feed" section. The user must be already subscribed to your primary account. You can see people subscribed to your private sub-feed at your "Subscribers" page. You can unsubscribe people from your private sub-feed there (and they will not get any notification about this). If you're subscribed to someone's private sub-feed, you can see who else is subscribed at the bottom of their "Subscribers" page.

If you've had a private feed and wanted to move to having the main feed be public but the subfeed private, is there a way to designate old posts to be private or move them to the subfeed?

 ‎· Spidra Webster
Comment

@spidra: You'd have to do 1 post at a time, but the option is under the "more" menu on every post. I would set up the private subfeed first, invite everyone that you want to allow access to it, then go through all your posts, moving any you want to keep hidden from public view, then when you make it all the way back to your first Mokum post, switch over your main feed to public.

Guys, we've just deployed some under-the-hood changes to make sure that Mokum stays available in Russia. You should see no effect :)

Друзья, мы несколько изменили конфигурацию Мокума, чтобы уменьшить наши шансы случайно оказаться заблокированными. Никаких изменений не должно быть видно, но если вы заметили, что что-то сломалось - пишите, пожалуйста!

Ahahaha. “Dear Customer, A part of your servers has already become unavailable from the Russian Federation due to Roscomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media) blocking the network 23.108.208.0/20 which includes public interface networks of your Cloud servers.”

Mokum financial report, August 2017 — February 2018: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1otuoDPuG44n6lstdNKzsFioR_0nhEyM50ZCye32O2cc/edit?usp=sharing TLDR: €1403.99 spent so far, out of €2577.8 raised (0.2130 BTC not included). We spend €155/month (the average number of €200 in the spreadsheet includes one-time installation costs, temporary three-server situation and unnecessary backups that were since purged). Thank you for your support! #mokum-budget

We've just enabled so-called "new frontend" as the default. If you have any issues using that, please report to @support. The main visible feature of the new frontend is that you can now add and delete images at any time. This was the most popular item in the current voting round: https://mokum.place/v/top.

Comment

It is expected that the new frontend should be much faster visually even now, but what's more important is that it allows for more upgrades to faster versions of React.js, removal of a lot of code (which increases page load speed), and of course the new code base allows to add more features. This was discussed back in August (/mokum/1550908), and now it's implemented.

There's no way to search Mokum for comments containing certain keywords, made by a specific user, is there?

@random this looks for your *posts* with specified keywords but doesn't show posts where your *comments* have these words. UPD: a funny tidbit is it finds comments in FF archive.

@seliv: oops you are right. I never noticed. it's strange as it perfectly finds comments by keyword (https://mokum.place/s?q=tidbit+) and comments by user, but not both

@random because 'from' clause applies to post author, not comment author: https://mokum.place/s?q=from:app103+tidbit+

As the result of multi-phase upgrade and optimizations, Mokum is now roughly twice as fast, thanks to @haron's efforts mostly. Graph on the left is for Dec 22, graph on the right is for today. The resulting price of two new servers is the same as before, but with faster hardware. Thank you for your support, :)

Comment

Typical search time is now between 1 and 2 seconds most of the time for full-page results, <1 for smaller pages. Few months ago my expectation was <5 seconds.

Another Pale Moon compatible Mokum bookmarklet/add-on option: Install Clickless Menu, found here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clickless-menu/ Add an entry named "Mokum share" and then add the code found here, as shown in my Screenshot: http://appsapps.info/stuff/Mokum-ID0-1.xml Be sure to put a checkmark in the Script column. The Clickless Menu will pop up whenever you select text on a page, displaying any options that are listed in the add-on's configuration.

For Pale Moon users that would like to use the new Mokum sharing extension, instead of the bookmarklet, but can't install it because Pale Moon doesn't support WebExtensions, you can use the Custom Buttons extension, found here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/custom-buttons/ Then visit this XML link and hit the Install button on the right side of the page: http://appsapps.info/stuff/Mokum-ID0-1.xml Then right click any toolbar in Pale Moon and go to Customize, to add the new button wherever you want it. This button is based on the official Mokum bookmarklet, but unlike the bookmarklet, you are not restricted to keeping it on your bookmarks toolbar. You can put it on any other toolbar, as shown in my screenshot.

We're starting to move Mokum to the new server. There will be a brief period when the site will be read-only, and maybe there will be some downtime. Please stay calm. Update: we're running on a single server for now.

Mokum had an outage that lasted for two hours. The root cause was that we had a massive misconfiguration that worked until you don't touch anything, and we did exactly that while trying to upgrade Ruby interpreter. Good news is that a lot of old cruft was cleaned up during firefighting, and Mokum is back online. Bad news is that it's not stable enough so tomorrow we need to find out what exactly is broken, and fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience. #mokum-outage
