@eurasierboy Hey, I don't receive notifications on my phone. Notifications are enabled both in the app and in the settings. Does your push server is down? Thanks
@j0k you are correct, because the notification you see is actually created from a local background operation, via a silent push notification. The reasoning is to keep the notification content private, this way the notification server doesn't ever see any of a user's content. The added benefit is that my server doesn't have to take on the load of processing content across the entire fediverse 😅
@eurasierboy this is a reasonable choice (both for the privacy and your server). Thanks for explaining.
The little downside is that it might eat a bit more battery from the user phone, I guess.
@j0k I've tried to use Tumblr/Facebook as my baseline for battery conservation, which is an incredibly low bar lol...
A small factor that works in your phone's favor is that all silent notifications are sent at a lower priority, based on some form of dark magic in Apple's APNS for maximum battery conservation
