FYI I follow José as well, but in Ivory using my account, I see one post from 4 days ago, one from 10 days ago, one 14 days ago, and one more 18 days ago. I don’t think he posts with the frequency you’d think.

If not, I realized that I could set up a hosted Pleroma instance and make you an admin so that you have a test environment? :smile:
