Howdy folks, we just fixed a bug that affected nearly all of you. Two days ago (Wed 3/8) we deployed some housekeeping code that aimed to cleanup the way we filter NSFW content under the hood. While the cleanup was well intentioned it had the unintended outcome of filtering out ALL NSFW content from both Following and Starred streams for everyone.
For those of you who have your "View Adult Content" preference set to
YES, you should now see NSFW posts in your Following and Starred streams when using Ello in a browser. If your setting is
NO, you should now see the NSFW toggles on NSFW posts.
In case you're wondering why - Boolean values are a common data type used in software development. They are used to represent a condition this is either
false. Unfortunately sometimes there is a 3rd condition,
undefined. We mistakenly assumed that we were using a value of
false and were failing to account for the
undefined value which we incorrectly coerced into false for all scenarios. Bad programmers
