Federation not working and cannot be unchecked

I’ve used federation successfully in the past, but my blog at mnmlmnl — Write.as or alternatively @mnmlmnl@write.as is not receiving any updates. I tried to uncheck/check the federation checkbox in my profile, but it keeps reverting to checked, which might be related?

Just to be sure, are you following that blog from whichever fediverse platform you’re on? Posts will only show up on instances that have someone following your blog.

Sorry for the confusion. Right now, if a blog is “Public,” federation is automatically enabled (and will always revert to checked).
