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?

 ‎· как раз про это новый заяц

@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

 ‎· как раз про это новый заяц
Comment

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

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, :)

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

I see a very small number of occasional errors (two in past 30 minutes). They go away after reload.

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.

(both Mokum servers will be affected, each could be down for up to 20 minutes, thus total downtime 40 minutes)

Слушай, я извиняюсь за крипотный интурзив коммент, который может триггерить. Биржи битка кажется отнимают до $9 на $100 при переводе с карты (жаба), а пэйпел меня забанил. Может быть у тебя осталась любая рублёвая кредитка visa/master (тогда я могу перевести по её номеру) или тебе можно сделать wire transfer в USD/EUR?

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.

Comment

I've enabled voting page: https://mokum.place/v, and every user's votes are replenished. If you look at the results of previous voting: https://mokum.place/v/top which happened last May IIRC, we're going quite well and it really helps to focus: 5 out of 6 top-voted features are finished, and the last one is in progress. So, I'd like you to vote again, and if you have any other medium/large feature that is missing from that list: please comment here. Thanks, #project-tyranny

Mokum budget proposal, September 2017 - September 2018. We need to raise 2410 EUR. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WWhjn3-2--oLv4s0wfvKDF6puRFRxGC_bqdtgZZnjD0/edit#gid=0 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

Comment

Out of curiosity, which of the Mokum service providers can be paid in BTC?

 ‎· LibSkrat
Comment

@libskrat: obvious jokes aside, BTC is a way to let our friends from countries w/o Paypal to participate. I'll probably liquidate entire amount immediately (unless expert consensus would be to wait until BTC is 10k).

"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.

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 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.

Comment

First, you need to create an API token at https://mokum.place/settings/apitokens, 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 https://movdut.0xd8.org/. 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
Comment

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.
