@rbenjamin @emi Oh oops—just saw that you already posted. My apologies for not being able to comment beforehand.

@clhendricksbc @emi no worries. It's flexible enough to be improved in its execution but hopefully specific enough to have a chance at succeeding.

Really the level of attrition with so many members to burnt or afraid to engage at this point will be its biggest obstacle.

Hoping that with a strong core it will build the momentum and trust needed to bring many who have been disengaged or never engaged forward to take part in saving this organization.

@rbenjamin @emi I’m still thinking about it. Work just got very busy and I have so many other commitments too...I am considering whether I have the time and energy. Will decide soon.

@clhendricksbc @rbenjamin @emi it’s good to see you talking about it in here ... I think loomio has its place for voting but we need to be talking in here to build social.coop as a community.

@clhendricksbc @rbenjamin @emi one thing I like to do is have the .coop local timeline open in a column so I can see what other co-op-ers are up to without their posts being interleaved with all the others from people I follow. Do others do that?

@edsu @clhendricksbc @rbenjamin

My local timeline hasn't been functional since the last upgrade... I'm not sure why, but it doesn't update like my other timelines...

@emi @clhendricksbc @rbenjamin yes good point, I've noticed it seems to lag and not be complete as well. I see that there have been reports about timelines not working after upgrading to 2.5.0 github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I asked about this over in the riot chat, and will let you know if I hear anything.

@emi @clhendricksbc @rbenjamin although it would be good to investigate - I don’t think the local timeline shows replies ... so it’s possible that it’s just quiet? Do you see nothing at all?

@edsu

I see content but it's usually a day or two old. And not from everyone on the instance. For example, I follow a few people on social.coop and I'll see their post in my home timeline, but it doesn't show up in my local timeline.

@emi yes I’m certain I’ve observed the same thing. I’m going to try to identify a post that should be in the local timeline that isn’t, to see if it can help.

@edsu @emi

Think i've noticed something like this since I joined although never really explored.

I mainly interact via Twidere on Android.

Noticed that some people who I follow, who are on SC, there posts dont show up on the SC public timeline.

Wondered if it may be something to do with the way the instance is set up on docker (not that I understand that)

Just thought, could it be the way some users have the privacy of their posts set?

@dazinism @edsu

Well, it used to show up for me (before the update). And some folks show up, just really really delayed (on my home timeline their posts shows up in real time, but on the local timeline it shows up a day later)...

I also don't think it's affecting everyone. From what I've heard, others haven't been having the same issues?

@Matt_Noyes

sure

i think i should be tethered to my computer for most of the day

@Matt_Noyes
The wait at the doctor’s office is a bit longer than expected. But if not exactly at that time, a bit after.

@edsu @emi @rbenjamin I use apps for Masto on my phone more than the web interface. Local timeline seems fine on those but I haven’t checked for lags.

@clhendricksbc @emi @rbenjamin I dunno if it's changed for y'all -- but the local timeline seems to be fresher for me now.

@edsu @clhendricksbc

I think it might be with the social.coop side. My local timeline for scholar.social seems to update more frequently? Also, posts from people I follow on social.coop still don’t show up on my local timeline despite showing up on my home timeline...

I’m just waiting for next update to see if it fixes itself :)

@emi @clhendricksbc one thing that might be worth doublechecking is logging out and back in again. The local timeline looks fresh for me now.

@edsu @clhendricksbc

Thanks... I tried that. The local timeline on scholar.social seems to be loading at a regular rate, but then again, I'm not following as many ppl with that account so it's harder for me to compare.

@clhendricksbc @emi Great thanks. The way I'm hoping to structure the engagement initially to get things going will be to minimize time commitment for those involved. Something like just a series of polls etc. You would be free to contribute as you can.
