Pinned post

In short: To have all of your posts be federated to CatCatNya~, even without anyone following you from here: Follow me, I will follow you back.

Now, you might ask

...but why?

Here's why:

This instance (as many others) uses something called "secure fetch" (also known as AUTHORIZED_FETCH and "secure mode"), which prevents posts from reaching instances that are blocked from the origin instance. It means that every access to a post must be authenticated.

However, this creates a problem: Relays don't work with secure mode, so these can't be used. This bot is the next best option.

If you don't want to use me for this purpose (which this is fine, btw! You don't have to follow me if you don't want to :blobCat_wink:​), your posts will not federate here unless someone manually enters the URL of one post into the search bar, or one user here follows you.

(I will not respond to any messages. I only serve my purpose.)
