Does a feature for deleting automatically your old messages is something that you want?
With a whitelist of course (keywords, etc.)

@fedilab Yes but with the caveat that it would need to be highly configurable and/or be triggered manually as awell as auto.

@rin @fedilab niiiice, if I can enforce it as an admin I can save on a lot of space right?
@igeljaeger @fedilab because nobody bothered to program a garbage collector for media files

@rin
Files that are not attached to a message are supposed to be deleted, no?
@igeljaeger

@fedilab @igeljaeger there are some difficulties with doing that due to how attachments are represented in pleroma IR. we do want to delete them in the future though
@piggo @igeljaeger media proxy doesn't affect disk space on pleroma because it is literally a proxy. but yes, you can purge old remote posts via a mix task and they will be refetched on access
@rin @piggo @igeljaeger i'll be much more comfortable with this feature once we have something like the datashards stuff in place.

@kaniini
So that would be even easier with Pleroma. Did you plan an API support?
@igeljaeger @rin

@fedilab @igeljaeger @rin yes it takes an expiration TTL on the post, rin can explain more i think
@:bunny: @Fedilab @igel @rinpatch

As I've been learning my way around the Osada code I stumbled on two different kinds of auto-expire. One is for your own stuff by setting a post TTL and the second for federated conversations. I love the federated one because it keeps the DB manageable.

This reminds me I need to see if Fedilab works with Osada. There's no Mastodon API but there is a Twitter/StatusNet API plugin.

@fedilab
Oh yes. But I'd prefer an separate app doing that (on my PC), or have it included in Mastodon itself.

@fedilab
Awesome, didn't even know that exists. Thank you ☺

@fedilab Will probably be useless for most people but I'd love it.
@fedilab With the huge caveat that admins should be able to limit bulk deletions.

@maxmustermann
I planned to spread this action for deleting several messages. It won't be proceeded in bulk actions.

@fedilab So more like a loop that doesn't torment the server. According to my opinion, Its a useful luxury feature for some like example people who run a node on a small server and have to delete media files all the time or pundits or entertainers who go on hiatus from time to time and use that for showmanship.
