Ok, either I completely destroyed my instance and nobody will read this, or I succesfully managed to get rid of the stupid "m." in my profile URL.
@matt yeah, it's not actually the URL that changed, it's just that "@ sjors @ sprovoost.nl" should work in user search.
@sjors Network tracking shows a 404 was returned and Mastodon just doesn't stop spinning in response
I think the solution would be to setup a new Mastodon server on a different subdomain, which uses the root domain for LOCAL_DOMAIN and then just migrate my account there.
@sjors Having your own instance for it is really awesome, but I really wish there was some way to get relay of everything on a few popular instances. There's the "Relay" feature in the settings, but none of the major instances use it (probably cause its too much data), but without it you are forced to always click through to other instances to see replies and discussion (for "boosts"). Would be really nice if there were a write-only relay option for those instances to use so that we can get it.
@matt I generally do see some replies when I click on a post, but probably more when I view it on the original page.
@sjors Maybe your instance starts downloading replies once the boost happens? Not 100% sure but you definitely miss a lot. If its originally from a followed account it seems to mostly not happen at all, same with if you're getting the feed of that account from a relay.
@matt @nieske yes, but not in the 2018 version of the docs that Google sent me to: https://github.com/mastodon/documentation/blob/archive/Running-Mastodon/Serving_a_different_domain.md#configuring-mastodon-itself
