I think that (at least as an experiment), I will move my personal thoughts to a different account, and leave this one to development and work-related matters.

If you want my non-work thoughts, follow me at @Gargron

I really want the Mastodon documentation to have a good structure rather than just all information thrown together in a pile. I'm not sure how though.

Saw an ad for breathable underwear. I don’t want my underwear to breath. That means it’s alive, and what I’m making it do is weird

So, mastodon.social users, once again I have tweaked hashtag autocomplete code.

If a hashtag has been reviewed by staff, you'll get autocomplete for it when you only start typing.

If it has not been reviewed, you'll only get autocomplete once you type the whole thing.

Please let me know how you find this system and the quality of results.

Have you ever used the hashtag filter in the profile directory to browse a specific interest?

Have you ever used the profile directory to find someone to follow, here or on another server?

"Are you self-aware?" the judge asked.
"My programming prohibits considering that question," the robot said.
"I see. Do you want to be able to consider that question?"
"My programming prohibits considering that question," the robot said.
"Can you recurse?"
"Wait... Wait... Yes."

That is not a very large pool of hashtags because staff is only asked to review them when they're about to trend, but I feel like otherwise there's too much room for error. Previous versions of Mastodon didn't have hashtag autocomplete so it's in any case better than nothing.

I've updated mastodon.social again. Now hashtag autocompletes only include results previously reviewed by staff.

Tribute poster to my favorite animated series, Metalocalypse! Also my oldest print, from 2015!

Hey mastodon.social users! I've updated hashtag autocompletion when writing a new post. I hope it's useful! Looking forward to feedback
