I followed my communities from my Mastodon account on die-partei.social to stay up to date. Now I noticed that nothing showed up in my timeline for quite a long time.
Apparently the following has been locked. Communities on lemmy.ml I can still follow without any problems, on lemmy.ca communities I get a notice that a follower request was made - which of course never arrived. The same applies to the attempt to follow my own lemmy.ca account from Mastodon.
Was this option intentionally blocked, is there a problem here?
Welcome to lemmy.ca’s c/main!
Since everyone on lemmy.ca gets subscribed here, this is the place to chat about the goings on at lemmy.ca, support-type items, suggestions, etc.

I’m not sure why that’s happening. I’ll try restarting the service to see if that helps at all.
Are you on the most current version of lemmy? I had read that there were improvements recently on how lemmy federates with Mastodon v4, including fixing starting new posts.
yes, we’re on the most recent version. it could be just a cosmetic thing too. I will try and follow a lemmy community from mastodon and see what it says in the lemmy db.
so how’s that going?
haven’t gotten around to it yet. probably won’t have a chance this weekend, will report back then.
Sorry for the late answer, haven’t seen any notification about the answers. Unfortunately, the problem is still there. I cancelled the request and tried again - the contact immediately changes back to ‘pending request’.
it doesn’t look like anything is being written to the db, and i don’t see any relevant errors in the logs. will keep investigating to see if i can figure out what’s causing this.
