"Mentions" page was reimplemented as a standard list of posts: 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.

Dear friends, let's all welcome back our old friend, whom we've all missed for almost two years now: @duck. Open your heart 💖, and let The Duck bless your life!
Dear friends, let me introduce to you, 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.
First, you need to create an API token at, enter "Movdut" in "Application or service name" and click "Submit". Then use this newly-created token (which is a string of letters and numbers) for authentication on WARNING: token is equivalent to your password, do not ever tell it to anyone you do not fully trust and do not submit it on sites you do not know. You can always "Revoke" that API token from the same page you've created it. That was the scariest part. ‎· псы в рапиде
After successful authentication you can enter up to five usernames and wait. If those users will also register and enter your username, you will be matched, which will allow you to whatever. Subscribe to @barankas bot, so that it would send you direct messages in case of successful match, or just check back to that page in a while. ‎· псы в рапиде

Dear friends, we've released new images engine. Main features are: a) thumbnails are delivered in optimal size, perfectly resized for your screen width (and fully Retina- and similar technologies ready). This is especially useful for mobile phones because it conserves bandwidth. Additionally, if your Android device is in "data savings" mode then thumbnail images are compressed even further; b) Uploaded images are post-processed, e.g. removing EXIF tags for privacy. c) There will be no more issues with half-broken animated GIF files, because we no longer transcode GIF files. d) issue with some photos being too dark is finally resolved; f) additionally, several bugs with image layout engine were fixed, so that screen is better used, especially on smaller devices. There are several more things that need to be implemented, both user-visible and under-the-hood, but this could be declared v1.
Many thanks to @haron for setting up everything. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
Technical details: thumbnail jpeg images are compressed with jpeg quality 70% (50% in data savings mode); lightbox images are compressed with jpeg quality 90% (60% in data savings mode). (For now, though, lightbox still serves old images, that will be fixed). Image resizing server is 133 lines of Perl. ‎· псы в рапиде
New engine allows us to eventually implement: a) "paused GIF" mode, where animated gifs are delivered only on image click, saving bandwidth; b) new lightbox for panoramas and longcat-style images; c) uploading non-standard image formats such as BMP; d) Retina-enabled avatars; e) attaching images to comments; f) inserting images to k-texts. ‎· псы в рапиде

Dear friends, recently permanently disallowed playing audio tracks uploaded to your user accounts on third-party sites (including Mokum). This was done quite abruptly. There were 514 tracks from shared by 68 users on Mokum. was the first music sharing service we've implemented, and it was done almost exactly a year ago. I've removed audio player (because it now always plays small jingle suggesting you to go to, and only the link to the site search page is left (e.g.: Mokum continues supporting (they seem to be doing quite well, which is really great),,, and direct mp3 URLs, including Dropbox links. Sorry for the inconvenience,
Mokum financial report, August 2016-November 2016: TLDR: €2225.6 (€1890 + €335.6 left from previous fundraising), €602 spent so far. We spend €150/month on average. (NB: I made a mistake in budget proposal and included only one server. Sorry about that!) Thank you for your support! #mokum-budget

Dear friends, we have a new design for Mokum, courtesy of @ayoshi. Please keep calm and report issues to @changelog (not to @mokum). New design is optimized for mobile devices, but desktop browsers need to be handled correctly. Due to the nature of change, we need to see the screenshot and information on device and browser you're using. This is very large change, it is not final, and mistakes are inevitable. Due to the nature of this change the only way to test this is with your help. Thank you! Please comment with positive feedback. Negative feedback goes here:
known issues to be fixed: a) inefficient use of screen space on some mobile devices; b) [fixed] links are underlined incosistently, and @mentions/tags should not be underlined, probably; с) (fixed) links on single post page are not aligned properly; ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 4

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. 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.
