Hey, we are going to reboot Mokum servers to finalize a security update. 5-10 minutes of downtime expected.

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, :)
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
Public service announcement: tomorrow, Sep 28, Mokum website will be unavailable for some time between 3:00 AM and 5:00 AM UTC due to maintenance at our hosting provider. Expected downtime is no more than 40 minutes. Thank you for your attention.
FYI, for users of the Opera browser, you can install the Mokum Chrome extension (or just about any other Chrome extension), if you install this Opera add-on, first. :) https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/download-chrom...
Dear friends, we've enabled donation page for the third fundraising in history of Mokum: https://mokum.place/about/donate PayPal and Bitcoin are accepted. We need to raise €2410. Thank you!
I'd like to share what's going on with Mokum development. The roadmap that we've compiled about a year ago is still relevant, here is the updated version: https://trello.com/b/KCM5x1Xc/mokumplace-roadmap-2016q4-2017q4. Since beginning of this year I was mostly working on two things: reimplementing images support and reimplementing frontend code. Images are mostly done, only a little bit of final migration is needed (and it will bring slightly better avatars). Frontend stuff is basically a lot of technical debt that needs to be paid off. Almost every other bugfix or new feature requires this change, because of improved velocity. This effort is currently visible mostly in the new posting form, which is around 75% finished. Combined, images and new posting form allowed to implement sharing bookmarklet and extension (https://mokum.place/sh) that were one of the most popular requests during last voting. All this work happens slower than I thought but quite steady, so I hope to finish it this autumn. After that is finished many well-known bugs will be fixed and improved, the list is quite long.
Mokum budget proposal, September 2017 - September 2018. We need to raise 2410 EUR. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WWhjn3-2--oLv4s0wfvKD... We'd like to migrate to newer/better servers this September. The Paypal Button and BTC address will be announced a bit later. Comments welcome. Thank you, #mokum-budget
Mokum financial report, December 2016-July 2017: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Wm9Jomjxga_ICRJSfH-Nu... TLDR: €2046.81 spent so far, out of €2225.6 raised. We spend €170/month on average (which is a bit more than I would like, will do something about that). We'll probably have another fundraiser next Friday. Thank you for your support! #mokum-budget
"Mentions" page was reimplemented as a standard list of posts: https://mokum.place/filter/mentions. It contains posts that a) mention you by username; b) link to your posts; c) link to your k-texts. I'm not sure that selection criteria are completely right, e.g. it looks like your direct messages should not be there, but that could be fixed.
💶💵 Mokum financial report, August 2016-March 2017: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Wm9Jomjxga_ICRJSfH-Nu... TLDR: €1254 out of €2225 spent so far on servers and backup storage 💻. We spend €156/month on average, so we have enough money till October 🎉, so the next fundraising will happen around September 🍂☔. Thank you for your support! 😍 #mokum-budget
Dear friends, let me introduce to you https://movdut.0xd8.org/, which is a kind of Mokum-based social app that facilitates whatever between mutually interested users, allowing matched users to whatever. It was developed by @vadikas as a reimplementation of well-known "Vduting" application which was quite popular in Russian Friendfeed (including its wildly successful "Vuzhing" offshoot). Here we go again.
