@Alisca Hm, I agree. Are the filters supposed to apply to followed users in addition to local/federated timelines?
@lackaff that would be odd, filtering out people you follow by language.
I had heard a rumour *looks around, all shifty-like* a rumour that the problem is that those accounts on the fed TL havent specified a language in their account, defeating the filter.
@Alisca Ha, OK, if it is account-based filter, rather than a message-based filter, that's a different issue. The "followed-user filtering" use case I was thinking about was following a multilingual user, and only displaying messages in specified languages.
@lackaff maybe Instance-level? Aren't these messages from any other instance that has a follower on Social? My brain hasnt Arrived yet with how the Federated TL works.
@Alisca Excuse me, but I can't filter the language I don't understand like Japanese on the fed TL, either. What do you mean, haven't specified a language in their account? can I do that?
Good point - I had a look at my profile settings too and I can't find it. It might be at the Instance level, not the Profile level?
I bet there's a team of people looking into it right now. *crickets*
@Alisca yeah, I also checked the language setting. It just didn't work.
Guess so. lol
@arrow also, checking OFF the languages which you DONT wanna see is a little mind-fuck way to configure it.
@Alisca so I quit and just let it go.😁
