@Violet Ah nice, cheers :3
@Violet You may know this already, but you can reset the durability counter of customizable tools by painting them different colors! IIRC each tool gets about 30 uses, so as long as you have enough customization kits you should be good :D
@cancel If it involves actually changing something about how Mastodon converts images, the fix may be pretty hairy to do—the kind of thing that might take hours to even look at, which unfortunately I won't be able to do this week.
If you're able to find any github issues or PRs on Mastodon that reference this same problem, that can help me look into this though!
@cancel Honestly I share your frustration—this software could be put together way better but it's not quite to where I want it, too. It won't be an immediate fix, but maybe actively participating in and contributing to the underlying software could help way more :3
@cancel The only immediate workaround I can suggest is to upload it somewhere else and paste the link to it in a post here >.<
The video conversion really doesn't work for super small GIF animations or pixel art
@cancel I'm unsure if APNG or WEBP are going to be supported in the future but that sure would be nice
@cancel It looks like webp isn't supported on Mastodon according to the docs, the way Masto works is that it automatically converts your GIF into a video: https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/posting/#attachments
@neauoire Best of luck, I know how tough that can be!
You can run Mastodon based on our repo locally, it looks like, but the docs are a bit sparse: https://docs.joinmastodon.org/dev/setup/
I'd add a stylesheet to the webpage using an addon like Stylish: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/
To update the site, you need access to the merveilles-town server to pull down the latest commit and restart the mastodon-web process. Since we're on a new server, I need to get your SSH key on there!
@stephen Aww thank you for this! And thanks to all the folks who replied below, that's super nice <3
Nice, looks like the rest of the missing assets were uploaded and now all we have to do is wait for the other existing images to have their permissions set.
I think I might do a short writeup over the weekend of what I had to do for this migration and some things that I learned as well—I definitely made some mistakes, but hopefully other folks can learn from them :3
@gaeel Cheers! :D
