    Does anyone else find that the cross-post function no longer works after the upgrade? Clicking the cross-post icon brings up the form correctly, but as soon as you select the language or the community, the form clears itself.

    Thanks Shadow. So far so good. Seems to have ironed out a few bugs with Photon too.

    The entire UI is really evolving and the speed now is blazing! Is this how websites should be if you don’t pack them with telemetry and crypto nonsense?

    I can’t help but notice the stark contrast between the rate of improvement to Lemmy vs the glacial pace of work done on Mastodon. Lemmy seems to embrace the “move fast and break things” ethos so much better than Mastodon which just crawls at implementing critical functionality. Which is funny, I follow Dessalines and Gargron on various platforms; Gargron seems like a much more sensible and reasonable and decent person so this is kinda disappointing.

    This is a social network. It’s recreation. I want you to move fast and break things. That’s how Facebook won. You’re not going to chase down the gazelle by walking.

      I agree with you but I think mastadon has bigger shoes to fill.

      Businesses looked at Twitter as a reliable way to communicate with a broad audience. To the point that even police services thought it was good enough.

      Mastadon, if it wants to be seen as a replacement needs to be high reliability.

      I don’t think Lemmy has that expectation. Like there is a user in these comments complaining that we didn’t get notice of down time and I’m kinda wondering why he would want that let alone expect it. As you say it’s recreation and so I don’t need that high level of reliability.

      You’re not going to chase down the gazelle by walking.

      (Sorry, I really like doing analogy analysis for the lulz.)

      While that analogy is absolutely true, the amount of prep work (stalking) that goes into that final sprint is super important. Personally, I have no problems with “move fast; break things” unless there isn’t an actual direction plotted first. Redundancy can even be implemented quickly, like when animals hunt it packs.

      Failure is always an option, but always double the estimated time it takes to do a change of only to account for any unknowns.

    Orly? Did you have to merge in a couple patches manually, or did the devs do a rerelease with the regressions fixed?

    Regardless, thank you kindly for your continued great work!

      They re-released the docker container on the same version number… (not ideal)

    This could be isolated to Connect for Lemmy, but it’s worthy to drop here: https://lemmy.ca/post/22945431

    Looks like /c/new is showing instead of a community feed and it seems to be isolated to communities on lemmy.world.

    It’s a strange bug but still something of note as it happened around the same time as the update.

    I can’t select a different feed or select sort options on community/feed pages or posts

    I use the web version on FireFox. I’ve been experiencing these issues for about 12 hours (some time following the upgrade to 0.19.4). It doesn’t matter if I’m signed in or not - Lemmy.ca is pretty unusable. I’m not experiencing this with other instances. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I was going to create a post about this, but I can’t post either. As soon as my cursor leaves the title or body fields, the text in those fields disappears

      Can you try clearing your cache? I use Firefox and haven’t run into any of this.

        Thanks, Shadow! That didn’t work unfortunately, but if this is just a me thing, I can deal with it. I don’t have the most up-to-date version of FF, which could be part of the issue

          Try a private window as well, that will rule out any plugins or extensions causing it.

          It really sounds like a cache issue though if you don’t run into this on other instances. There’s nothing special about our code.

            Thank you, you’ve been very generous with your time and I don’t want to take any more of it up. I tried cache clearing, private window, computer restart. I have one non-lemmy.ca account (lemmynsfw.com). I can view lemmy.ca communities fine from my nsfw account and there are no issues in general, but directly using lemmy.ca and using my lemmy.ca account no longer work (as described above). This stuff is beyond my comprehension but if it’s only affecting me (which it seems to be based on the lack of other reports) than it’s hardly an problem for the instance

              Try another instance on 0.19.4 like https://lemmy.ml/ and see if it happens there too. If so, it’s your browser not liking something in the new version =)

      No issues with sort options for posts/comments for me currently with Firefox 127 on macOS.

    I’m getting “unknown error” when I try to up vote a post. At least when I use the swipe to up vote feature in Memmy. Maybe Memmy needs an update.

    Thanks for the update but I’d feel better if you had warned us ahead of time.

    I lost connection a few times and I panicked and I didn’t have a clue what might have happened.

    If your update had run into serious problems and everything went down longer than expected, we’d all be in the dark wondering what happened.

    It worked out good this time but software problems happen all the time and it might not always work out so good next time.

    Otherwise … I’m still thankful and grateful for the work you and your team do to maintain this service.

    Keep up the great work … it is much appreciated.

      In this case I expected it to be a much faster upgrade than it actually was, so I tried to yolo it. We do have https://status.lemmy.ca/ where normally I post in advance, I’ll do that next time =)
