    XMPP Server Roster Notice

    admin · / chatterboxtown-us-news-and-announcements · Wednesday, 3 March - 07:54

Dear ChatterboxTown.US users, in the process of updating some things on the XMPP server it appears that the rosters of many accounts may have been damaged or deleted. If your contact list is still visible, please be sure to that your subscription status for that contact is active. In Gajim, right click on the contact name -> Manage Contact -> Subscription should show the "Allow" and "Ask" options greyed out. If it is not you will need to re-ask the contact . If you are using Conversations/, open your current chat and check the Contact Details. You may need to re-add the contact. It appears that MUC bookmarks should still be OK. Again, we're very sorry for this and any inconvenience that may have caused.

    Twitter and Tumblr connector add-ons have been activated on the Friendica node

    admin · / chatterboxtown-us-news-and-announcements · Wednesday, 3 February - 01:28

The Twitter and Tumblr connector add-ons have been set up and ready for use. You can go into you settings page -> social networks to add your accounts. The Twitter connector will allow you to import/export/mirror. The Tumblr connector will allow you to export your Friendica posts to Tumblr. I have only tried following a Twitter account from Friendica and that appeared to work. I personally don't use Twitter or Tumblr so I don't really have anything else to say about the post exporting, etc.

    Biboumi IRC Gateway Added

    admin · / chatterboxtown-us-news-and-announcements · Tuesday, 22 December - 12:03 edit

The Biboumi IRC Gateway has been added to our service. You can now use your XMPP account and client to connect to IRC channels. For example, if you want to join the IRC channel "#channelname" at IRC server "", in your XMPP client you would join MUC address "" See Biboumi End-user Documentation for more usage help. This feature has been added to ChatterboxTown.US for convenience. But please note the IRC gateway does not conform to the same privacy level as our main XMPP service, whether you’re using encryption or not. This is exactly as if you were running your IRC client on someone else’s server. Only use our Biboumi IRC Gateway if you don’t intend to have any private conversation.

    Upload file size and file retention limits have been increased

    admin · / chatterboxtown-us-news-and-announcements · Monday, 21 December - 10:53

We have increased out maximum upload file size (for a single file) to 2GB with a total user quota of 4GB in 7 days. ChatterboxTown.US was started with the media creator in mind. With Covid-19 restrictions, pre-recorded productions for churches and other groups have increased, but in person exchanges have decreased. We wanted to make ChatterboxTown.US accommodate larger file sizes that normally cannot be exchanged via email and most other instant messaging services should one want to make a more direct file delivery to others, as opposed to using file upload services.
