Thank you to everyone who has donated this month! We reached our monthly goal of covering server costs. Now we are wondering what to do with the excess money and would like to turn to the community to help us decide!

Please vote in the poll or reply with any suggestions or questions you may have.

Hello all!

We have created a blog to provide more in depth updates should they ever arise.

Feel free to follow!

Fediverse: @bookrastinating

Website: blog.bookrastinating.com

RSS Feed: blog.bookrastinating.com/feed.

@Elephantidae No need to apologize for asking questions. 😄

I personally use the dark mode, yes. However Bookrastinating is defaulted to white.

You can go to your profile and any replies you have made should be there!

@Elephantidae I agree, it's not very intuitive. I think I can make some tweaks on my end but feel free to post a feature request on the official repository: github.com/bookwyrm-social/boo

@Elephantidae Hello! There should be a little bar underneath with possible interactions, including a reply button. Does this appear for you?

@Elephantidae Yes, it's an ongoing issue, unfortunately. There are ongoing discussions about it, not sure how fast this will be resolved!

@itsmistermoon it is possible through the web interface, however it's extremely tedious.

there is no way to directly unlink editions. the only way is to create a new book with the same details for each volume and then delete your past reviews.

@itsmistermoon Hello! I faced that issue as well. They only way I could remedy it was by manually splitting them out. I can try ti take a look at writing a script that can do it automatically this weekend.

@michal Thank you for finding the import average! I did not know about that, it will be handy to reference in the future!

Import time really depends. Imports may not start immediately as you may have to wait for previous imports to finish before yours can start. Depending how many are before you and how many books are in each import, it could even take a few hours just for a few books.

As far as I know, the BookWyrm devs are trying to figure out a solution for this!

@Elephantidae Hello! There are two "tabs" on your timeline. There is "Home" which shows updates from users that you follow. And there is "Books" which should be showing what you are talking about: showing other people interacting with books you have on your shelves.

Let me know if that helps any!

Do not be worried if your import is seemingly stuck at "0%". There is a huge backlog of imports and there are likely many people ahead of you.

However, any import that was started on or before November 11 is most likely stuck. Please reach out to me if that is the case or try to cancel your import.

Thank you all!

@geewiz One way is to follow your BookWyrm account on the fediverse and then boost your posts from your BookWyrm account. Unfortunately there is no easy way yet!

@Paul @Tattooed_mummy There is no official app but there is an app that is basically a wrapper around the website.

If you have android you can download it here: apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid/index/a

@LowlyAdjunct You are able to do so now! It will take some time (at least a few hours) but they will no longer be stuck.

Imports can now be done. The queue is clear for now. However, there may still be some slowness with many users doing imports as once. Thank you all for your patience!
