@Pol Yes ... successfully followed ... do you need some advice on the process? There's more than one way to do it, some easier than others.


@ColinTheMathmo @Pol @christianp I just tried, and it looked successful, but then when I checked again it said "follow requested". Similar to some issues with types.pl yesterday :/

@nilesjohnson @Pol

OK, mine also says "Follow Requested" ... I think that will be at their end, not ours. They might be a bit picky about who they allow to follow them.

You can always subscribe to the RSS feed.


@ColinTheMathmo @nilesjohnson @christianp I think there is an issue somewhere on this server, friends of mine using another server succeeded to follow those accounts without any troubles. Weird.

@ColinTheMathmo @christianp @nilesjohnson I guess it's not related, but my "Home feed" doesn't seems to load anything. Am I the only one?

@ColinTheMathmo @christianp @nilesjohnson Well, mine's not loading at all. Same on the Android app. I have the feeling that something's definitely not right :(

@Pol We'll have to wait for @christianp to get a chance to look at it, but if it's only you, it might be a problem at your end, and then there would be little he could do about it.

Are you using the web interface? What browser? What OS?

(This is so you have that info to hand in case Christian needs it)


@ColinTheMathmo @christianp @nilesjohnson Using the web interface on Firefox 99.0.1 on Linux (NixOS), I also tried using Mastodon app on Android 12.1. Same result.

Who knows. My home feed is ok for now, but small servers are under waves of new traffic, and admins are doing their best but probably tired of this week. It will work out, and I'll try not to be impatient :)

@ColinTheMathmo @christianp

@Pol The question has been asked ... how many people do you follow? If the answer is "nearly none" then it might be that there is nothing to show in that feed.

@christianp @nilesjohnson

@Pol For the settings for that feed, if you've turned off boosts an replies, there might not be anything to show. How many people do you follow? Do you follow anyone not on this instance?

@christianp @nilesjohnson

@ColinTheMathmo @christianp @nilesjohnson I'm not following a lot of people that's true, but now my home feed is working. I didn't do anything special !

@Pol In particular, assuming you're in the web interface (and possibly even if not) try this link:


Then you should be able to click the follow button.
