Understanding cofiguration "pages" and scraping by date or server

Closed

I run three times the actor with the same keyword/tag "lehrerzimmer", but I did not quite understand why it gave different results in one of them. I run it once with a limit of ten pages, then without limits and another one with 100 pages. The first two found aprox. 350 and 70 results respectively. The last one found nothing. I don't understand this.

Another thing I would like to know. Is there a possibility to let the actor know between what dates should the posts be scraped and from which mastodon server they should be scraped?

Thanks for the report! The bug where the run returns nothing is now fixed.

Mastodon is still a fairly new product and does not provide the capability to filter through dates yet.
