I know I saw somewhere around here a topic about it but I can’t find it, it’s driving me crazy.
I tried subscribing to a test user or a test group from a mastodon account, but it’s been stuck waiting for « validation » of that follow. Of course I have no way of validating it from mobilizon.
I’m sure I saw a discussion here saying it’s normal and has a 24 hours delay by default.
I’m very confused by this:
- Is it a 24h waiting period since the last mobilizon server restart? (I think I read that…)
- Why is it necessary? Is there an activitypub federation issue behind this?
- Would it be safe to reduce this 24h period? It it safe to reduce it down to zero to allow people to instantly follow mobilizon users/groups from their mastodon accounts?
Maybe I’m totally wrong and this has nothing to do with the 24h waiting period.
We are using the 1.0.1 release.
(I can switch to french but I think this discussion could help some english native speakers as well)
