Sorry for the short interruption, just updated mastodon.social to the latest code.
Here is what you can do on mastodon.social now. Like a permanent follow friday, or myspace top 8, except 4 are displayed in random order out of however many you want.
@Gargron Hi, I’m kind of new here. Will there ever be an “official” mastodon social iPhone app?
@Gargron I don't see a "bf-recommends-ff-top picks" box thingy on the profile. Is that not happening?
@Gargron neat, thanks!
@Gargron This is a pretty neat idea. Question, though: if a user on that list blocks the user featuring them, do they disappear from the featured list?
@gargron ok thats actually pretty neat
@Gargron Do new features get localized before or after each code release?
@igrom mostly before but it's up to volunteers, i just give a certain amount of time for submissions
@Gargron Oh man I miss the ol' top 8. :D
@gargron like im legit hype about the idea of this being on mastodon.art so i can rotate out people to boost
@Gargron I swear i'm not trying to be pushy... but is there an ETA on when this will be released as GA? Inquiring minds want to know :)
@chuck it's in master right now, it's just dependent on how long it takes until there's another release. (which has timing constraints that are largely independent of any individual feature)
@nightpool Thank you :) I think I manaaged to get on the mute-list for garg.
🤷 Who knows with that crazy cat's firehose of a toot stream.
@Gargron cheers - a lovely thing
@Gargron Is there a way to manage them as a list?
@Gargron I'm not seeing feature on profile using the three dot elipsis menu - is it a feature rolling out?
@shadowbottle You're not seeing the ellipses in the bottom right of a toot?
@Hoos I'm not seeing the option for "Feature on Profile" - the "permanent follow Friday" feature.
@shadowbottle Ah. Gotcha. Yeah, not seeing that either. You're probably right with the gradual rollout idea.
@gargron that's actually a pretty fun idea :)
@Gargron where does this show up? should be on your profile, but just above pinned toots or what?
@Gargron do you get a notification if somebody chose to feature you?
@gargron i have two questions:
1. does it notify a user they've been pinned or can such a notification be implemented
2. can there be a way a user can preemptively keep people from pinning them (like if they lock down their account or such)
Thx, I really like the idea of this a lot
@Gargron oh that’s a blast from the past. I like it!
@Gargron you give the people what they want - myspace top 8
@Gargron +1 for referencing Myspace!
@Gargron Is there a site to go to when Mastodon.social is down? BGG does and it would be charming if it wasn’t Reddit.
