I think the and federations pose interesting questions about what platforms can and should be.

Do we actually want blogs and feeds of blogs folded into a mastodon/microblog social feed?

Do we want to read and comment on blogs on mastodon?

Do we want all the diversity of the fediverse fed into a single platform's UI and hope that it works well?

Are we worried that some choices by our platform or instance admin might hinder this process?

I'm rather skeptical.

mima,

@maegul

I think the fedi needs to be more about clients/apps than it is currently.

Agreed, and I kinda touched on this earlier about how the should've simply been a frontend where people just use their main fedi account instead of having to create another account for forums in a link aggregator... ​:sagume_think:​

Tbh all the implementations in the first place should've been backends first and foremost. Why should I not be able to have 's frontend in or ? And the other way around too. This does mean that we will have to all agree on a common client API and MastoAPI will dominate, but I'd rather have Mastodon dictate client API than fediverse implementations. ​:seija_coffee:​

Tbh I think the like and would make a lot more sense if they were simply frontends and perhaps a backend too but just for the forums themselves. IOW, no accounts live in Lemmy or kbin, all users post from their preferred account instead.

Sure you can already technically do that from your or or whatever fedi you're in, but that means using whatever app you're on right now, which almost certainly means it's not a UI. Not ideal at all.

If I had any good programming skills I'd make it so that the link aggregator is merely a client that uses the Mastodon (with extensions too) and Misskey APIs, treat (almost) all actors as their own forums or subs, and each post would be a boost from said actor. Users authenticate from their preferred fedi account. Voting would be tallied by few special actors, which internally receive votes via direct messages (the app will make this transparent, but this also means you can technically vote without the app if you know the exact command), which will effectively make votes secret to non-admins like in . Users can also choose which vote counters they want to rely from.

This would make the fediverse-powered link aggregator very flexible and minimal, imo. It may look janky but that's the general idea I have. ​:seija_coffee:​

Hm. I wonder if I can get any fediverse admins onboard to disable all images on their instance on the World Sight Day in October, so that only alt text shows up.

Stock Misskey does not have multiple selection polls?

Come to the dark side (Sharkey) -we have cookies and milk. lol

I do not understand why Mastodon became so popular in the Fediverse. Once you learn about all the advantages of Misskey and the many forks (Sharkey, Ice Shrimp, etc) and how limiting and sometimes uncooperative Mastdon can be (this being an example), it makes you wonder. lol

Sanity check: if you block an instance's Actor (eg, server.domain@server.domain), does that block the whole instance?

I don't see why it wouldn't, but I'm making some big assumptions, and I'm not sure if this is standard for non-Masto servers.

mima,

@deadsuperhero Nope, doesn't seem so. Blocked a #Mastodon instance I have an alt of from my #Misskey here, and then posted from the Mastodon. Can still see the post from there. ​:mima_think:​

One way to promote the #Fediverse is by making the different fediverse software support custom profile skins and themes. This can potentially create an ecosystem of skin and theme creators, which in turn will make more people talk about it.

I differentiate between a skin and a theme because:

  • A “skin” is like changing the CSS of the default layout. Adding an image here and there, new icons, and colours and gradients.
  • While a “theme” can change the layout itself. The widgets available, or shuffle them around. Possible even a way to add custom ones (careful with this though).

Remember the original #CMS in late 90s to 2010? #PHPnuke #PostNuke #Xaraya etc.?

You can add, remove, and move widgets around. Use custom ones easily. Change colours easily. Change the widths, the columns, and so on. That is a “theme”. There were even third-party frontend packages a developer can use so they don't have to worry much about it.

Skinning is the simplest method; and this was what made #Plurk popular when it launched in May 2008 (yes, Plurk is as old as the Fediverse network). There was a Plurk skin ecosystem, which in turn increased the number of people talking about Plurk.

Apply the theming feature from the early CMS brands with Plurk's user-level skinning feature, and we create a playground for the users.

#Misskey and forks already had a good start with their user-level skinning feature (and user-level plugins at that). We just need to see it in the other popular fediverse software.

Make it easier to understand. Write guidelines in layman's terms, not dev terms, and maybe, just maybe, we can spark the interest of new users. Who doesn't want a customisable user profile?
