This post is a little over 2,400 characters: https://kolektiva.social/@estrapade/109385693883714863 How does that/work happen? Is the 500 character limit not universal?
@iain I'm (somewhat) more impressed that the cached copies of posts in other servers (ie the federated timeline and reply/boost/etc notifications) without those size limit edits still works. It seems like a FirstThingToDo to manage external abuse of local resources.
@jcl Mastodon instances are generally hosted on their owners' own server space, so presumably they can make whatever modifications to the software they want.
@drunkcrunkfranken Right, but in copying messages to other servers (which is how the federated timeline and notifications work), the other servers have to accept/support the results of those changes. It takes two to tango...
We are an inclusive Mastodon community for everything tabletop (and more).
