Pinned toot

I now have two, yes, TWO public libraries!

Game OSTs (and remixes):


There isn't a HUGE amount of music as of yet, but everything that I upload will be properly tagged (no inconsistent metadata).

Any suggestions? Just tell me and I'll probably add it!

@strypey @DashEquals @dansup Incidentally a reddit clone also needs these same features but may not include a picture in every post.

You could even make "subreddits" by just using post tags and making them browsable in a similar way.

@strypey @DashEquals @dansup oh yes definitely.

I think it might only be a few superficial differences.
1. Make it easy to link directly to media (god I hate how Instagram makes it hard to share or save an image)
2. Conversations need to have nesting to make it more usable by a larger group of people. Single thread quickly falls apart.
3. Some kind of vote based system to order comments by and create that "Frontpage" feel.

(so please, spam the heck out of my mentions)

(oh, also, this instance doesn't currently block or mute any other instances, and I only mute a few users who don't like me, so there won't be any issues there)

Goal: let's get the largest / longest thread on the #fediverse. Feel free to comment / discuss whatever you want in this thread (except for harassment, promotion of fascism, and other crappy stuff), I just want to see how long a thread can get, and what issues #Mastodon, #Pleroma, #Misskey, and others will run into when seeing a thread this big.

Posting images, video, "GIF's", and audio are all also appreciated. The more the better!


Another idea: Mastodon bot that automatically converts YouTube videos to MP3 and posts them (maybe as a DM to avoid copyright issues)

Idea: Mastodon bot that looks for any YouTube links and uploads to PeerTube

QueerTube (and really, in general) needs to deal with their spam problem.

@felix seems like a lot of work to test a theory that is not really the point i am making.

the point i am making is that the fediverse is an open-world network by design (without any provision for authorization even) and that unfortunately includes nazis.

Thank you.

In these polarized times, it makes an important statement: that users should be free to choose who they listen to, and that we are all human and can share the benefits of wonderful free software like #fedilab

people who block and run

It isn't fair for devs to have to make political decisions in public and inevitably be harassed by users no matter which decision they make.

Some app devs chose to block/others didn't.
All instance blocks can be implemented by admins anyway so no one loses blocking abilities.

Harassment of devs on this issue no matter which side they take is unfair and could lead to devs not partaking as fully in public discussions.

Being a dev is not intrinsically political.

I will stop here with #Gab by removing the block feature inside the app in the next release.

My motivations:

- I didn't receive a reply from Google policy team about a potential ban of the application.
- Without the previous risk, I clearly think that's not my role. I can't hard-code instance blocks especially when every tools are here for that.
- If you want a strong block, it's in the hands of social network developers or your admins.

Ooh, didn't know that HentaiHaven uses LD+JSON.

Serious question: does any program actually *do* anything with generic LD+JSON (not Activity+JSON)?

Wow, so actually has a well thought out method of federating old content, including fetching all video likes, comments, and boosts. and should take inspiration.

Interesting problem with trending tags: Twitter --> Mastodon crossposters post RT's with the full text, including hashtags, so when a single tweet is popular on Twitter, it'll appear as a trending tag on Mastodon.
