krytarikOtoh, apparently there is no way yet to do proper posts under an entity account on Mastodon yet, so..00:00
* guiverc is all for dropping fb.00:01
krytarikAnnoyingly though turns out we got 5 times more followers on FB than on Twitter.. >_>00:10
krytarikBut yes, considering no one among us really likes to post there anymore.. and I think I've suggested this before.00:12
guivercif readers are using fb; i think it's best we continue to post there; as I've blocked fb here I use tor-browser for that paste, and I'm waiting for the 404 to be fixed it'll be later when I'm on debian (i'm tempted to ping someone, but won't... I'll remind via bug comment)00:15
guiverc& yeah you've mentioned before krytarik, thanks00:16
Bashing-omMastodon - Fridge774 tooted // and made my blarb for our WIKI774 issue.00:17
Bashing-omguiverc: Clear now to wipe Gdoc ?00:18
guivercyep scrub away Bashing-om 00:18
Bashing-omDoing the wipe/rinse/-repeat thing then :P00:19
guivercBashing-om, on mastodon & "Ubuntu Weekly News", I'd just use the wiki link (not fridge)00:28
Bashing-omguiverc: The Fridge link is from popey's bot - still up in the air to ammend.00:32
krytarikAnd since it's just a bot, it needs a source to pull from..00:33
guiverci recall discussion on bot; i just noted the reason I see..   yeah feed from fridge would be easier for bot to detect..00:35
Bashing-omUWN: We do issue775 :D00:41

popeyguiverc the ubuntuweeklynews bot on mastodon is indeed run by me. It's just an RSS to Masto script. I used that because it's easier than trying to scrape the wiki.09:51
popeyAlso, the wiki is slow and unreliable.09:51
popeyGlad it worked though :)09:52
popeyI guess the script could drill into the post and extract the url from it, and then post that instead09:53
guivercIt worked well.. (I'd just have a preference for the wiki link being used as its complete instead of just script-picked headings..)  but link is on fridge post.09:53
popeyI'll fix it for next week :)09:53
popeyif my python skills are up to it :D09:53
guivercif it's easy, you have time etc.. it's not urgent, essential etc.  so only if you have capacity etc. but thanks Alan09:54
guiverc& thanks for creating the ubuntuweeklynews bot popey, that is REALLY APPRECIATED, so thank you !!09:57
popeyNo problemo09:58

aaronprisk[m]Hello Ubuntu News folks, I wanted to follow up on the Discourse discussion and was wondering if you would be open for a quick meeting sometime this week?20:53
krytarikSure, as long as it'll be textual.. >_<21:05
aaronprisk[m]I'm good with any format! 21:53
guiverc[m]I'll fit in (meeting wise) as much as possible; i'm AEST though so very different to everyone...22:17
guivercpopey, I just remembered we're moving off the wiki; so adjusting bot to use something we may not be using for long doesn't make sense... skip my suggested change for now ; apologies & thank you23:06
aaronprisk[m]guiverc: Awesome, I'm over on east coast US, but I can be flexible. My goal is to chat a little about the Discourse migration and a few other things the Community Team could help out with.23:24
