hmm it's alright... but a severe lack of toast.
@root That's not my fault, I've been boosting toast
get on it mastodon.social! prove socialism is correct and boost toast!
@Gargron You only can see what is "known" on the local server right?
is this the case on any instance?
when I see the number of boosts on a toot that's just the number of times it's been boosted on my current instance?
@malevolent_usb_drive Yes, unless the toot was created on your instance, in which case it's the fullest count. You can click on the date/time of any toot to go to the public page of that toot which always contains the fullest count.
gotcha, so if I'm looking at the toot via the domain from which it's posted that's the total count including all other instances, however if I'm looking at a toot from another instance through my instance's domain it will only me the toots on my instance?
this makes sense I just wanted to be sure I understand
@Gargron I can’t view it on an iPhone on jsFiddle
@Gargron 🙆 yes
@Gargron Absolutely! Why wasn’t it there first?
@chartier Iterative process? Wasn't sure anyone but me was interested in that list
@Gargron That’s fair. Well FWIW I think it’s a fun list and a good idea.
@gargron no, I don't think it's a bad look
@Gargron Better silly stuff like that than post calling out people or roasting them.
@Gargron “boost if” toots exist outside linear time and therefore circumvent the chronological timeline
@Gargron keep in mind that it was mostly if not all positive nontoxic content. It's a pretty good look.
@bijou We shouldn't encourage people to be chasing (and especially begging for) boosts
@Gargron probably not, but without some kind of karma system it doesnt really matter how much boosts a person gets in the end. I don't think they were begging for boosts for some kind of notoriety, I know I've said "pls share" just because I thought more people than just my small audience would appreciate my joke or whatever. But to be fair to you, that's just me.
@Gargron it’s broken on iOS, can’t scroll down
@Gargron So essentially... Mastodon.social rewind. *hides behind cover*
@Gargron why not?
@Gargron These are great!
It's almost like a "Top Toots" or a "Trending Toots" would be a cool feature. 😉
So, the list of the most-boosted toots includes begging for boosts and offensive ‘fuck a group of people’ post, that’s what I would expect from mainstream, corporate-owned social media… (I love the project, but community isn’t anyhow different here)
@m4sk1n if a group of people doesn't recognize your existence or your dignity then they deserve no respect
@Gargron Seems like there is an exceedingly large amount of 'Everything is better when people are nice to each other'. Turns out, being nice is Mastodon clickbait...
