I’m a user on the cybre.space instance and have had recurring problems viewing my feed. The problem seems to arise when I haven’t visited the site in a while (like a couple of months). I come to the site and instead of my feed I see a note that my feed is being prepared. And then it stays like that for something like a week. I think this has something to do with the software trying to process the backlog of my feed, but it makes the site nearly unusable for me.
Here’s a thread where I described the issue:
As far as I can tell, just staying logged on isn’t enough to restore functionality; I need to visit the tab regularly for a several-day period, which I don’t always remember to do, and if I forget for too long the whole process starts over.
There is so much that I love about Mastodon, but for the moment it’s barely working for me.
