Question to everyone: I have been very impressed with the voluntary #Mastodon' server covenant.
Has any other server-based self-hosted open-source platforms done something akin to this?
I'm familiar with other attempts at contributor covenants, but not other server based ones... But hope there are others out there....
So many of these features are already in #Mastodon btw, like bookmarks.
Others seem like an easy lift for future versions... Editing toots is almost already akin to the Undo Tweets feature... #Mastodev
Lots of tweaks, fixes, and additions in #Mastodon RC 3.4: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.4.0rc1
The more I think about #mastodon features that would be strategic, the more I think folks should build in features and tools for hyper-local communities to use. Lean in on "instances" intended specifically for networks of a dozen (or at least under 100) friends and family. In essence a replacement for "FB groups."
The #Fediverse certainly do more, but that seems like a strategic opportunity. In essence what Darius Kazemi has been thinking about for a while.
This would be a good feature to add to #Mastodon:
"Now you can decide who can respond to your posts. Your choices of who can reply:
Only people you follow.#
Only people you mention in the tweet.
And since you can mention no one, you can make it so that no one can respond to a post.
For instance if I wanted to be sure to see all the public posts from an instance like this. It's almost a customized "Federated" view:
Question #Mastodev folks: is there anything in the works to make remote follow, remote boost, remote likes a far more seamless experience?
Both from a UI experience, but also from a "reduce requirements to credential yourself as often, if at all?
Think that is one of the more confusing part of #Mastodon to users more familiar with centralized social nets.
