@thor @juliobiason Actually. It's more than one line of change. The limit 500 is hardcoded is many different places. I noticed that when I looked for the limit some time ago. It's almost as if they want to make it as hard as possible to change.
That said, if you use the Glitch fork (like what is used on this instance) then you can set the limit to whatever you want. Pleroma also supports that, and its default is 5000.
