Out of curiosity, do you understand what I mean when I say "public hashtag page"?
@Gargron I think it’s possible I do not
@Torie If you're in the columnized web UI and left click on a hashtag, it opens in a column. That's the web UI version. When you instead open the hashtag link in a new tab, it opens a separate page, possibly on a different server. That's the public hashtag page.
@Gargron ok. Cool. Thank you. Regardless, I do think the masonry set up is confusing and takes a way part of what I like about masto which is super clear and unambiguous chronological posting. I think there’s room for confusion there because everyone’s eyes will be wizzing around the screen.
@Torie I don't think it takes anything away, since Mastodon users do not customarily view that page. It's oriented towards outside viewers, and I think it makes better use of the screen real estate to make sure that they see at a glance something they might be interested in.
@Gargron yeah I see what you mean. I guess I’m thinking towards tumblr and how they have that same mentality and went to the grids. And I did see that page semi frequently despite not being meant to and hated it every single time. But I also definitely see what you’re saying.
@Gargron Sounds like a page with all the public posts containing a hashtag.
@Gargron I'd propose a quick screencast to get the idea across...
I'd be interested to see how newer/older posts appear on the page.
@Gargron I have two things in mind. It is public and a page. But here comes the tricky part. Either you can see the toots (under a specific hashtag) or a word cloud which hashtags are most used on an instance (which I guess is cool as well?)
@Gargron will this be merged with the new explore/directory?
@james No, it's unrelated, but it's part of a motion to revamp all public pages to use a more consistent header/footer
@Gargron looks like Tumblr's hashtag search, it's a good thing
@Gargron I don't. Please elucidate.
@Gargron A directory of hashtags used. 🗃
@Gargron I'm slightly surprised at myself for not noticing they were links. Handy tip!
@Gargron That looks great!!
@Gargron I like the mosaic layout! Only issue I can see is that since images can align randomly due to different proportions, it sometimes gets a little confusing. Very convenient design none the less.
@Gargron Nice! Though I agree that the tag should be visible as a header.
@Gargron This looks great!
@Gargron I really like this idea, and the implimentation makes it easy to scan lots of toots at once
@Gargron So many caaaats *O*
The explanation in the header is nice for people outside of the fediverse. Good thinking
@Gargron nothing to complain about the layout, I just find annoying the pop up and userid request everytime I try to fav or boost a toot in there especially if I'm already logged in the same instance. I guess it has something to do with the whole protocol whatever but... oh well
@Gargron my first thought was a column showing all the relevant # searches I happen to click on.
