@Gargron "Relationship manager" sounds like a dating website
@Gargron i have a visceral negative reaction to manage subscriptions
@anna What then? Manage the fellowship?
@Gargron i like relationship manager
@Gargron it could even be made into an indie game, Relationship Manager 2019
@Gargron Subscription makes more sense is all IMHO.
@Gargron can you get rid of that ugly verb "to manage" at all?
@saper I can, but still left with subscriptions or relationships, because followers and followings cannot be united into one word otherwise!
@Gargron "relations" maybe, but that is still not obvious that this means "followers" and "followings" at the same time. I'd have hell of a trouble translating it nicely. Those I just "people I interact with"...
@Gargron "Manage Following/Followers"
@Gargron "Manage following"?
"Relationship manager" sounds like marriage counseling.
@Gargron maybe somethin like connection manager?
@citrustwee No, that's what a page where you have settings for like, Twitch/Discord/Twitter integrations, on other websites
@Gargron hmm, yeah. relationship manager feels a little too intimate and subscription manager sounds too corporate. trying to think of somethin that would fit a little better 🤔
@citrustwee I try to take into account what people may be familiar with from other sites
@Gargron association manager? idk that doesn't sound great. hmmmmm
@citrustwee It's fine, I will just call it Follows & Followers
@Gargron yeah, that's probably what most mastodon users are familiar with. nice work :-)
@Gargron You should have separate names for the managing followers and managing people you follow versions, and they should not appear *too* unified to the user (especially if you ever hope to allow this UI to be used to manage visibility/permissions of posts — Google+ did that and it was IMO a huge mistake on their part).
@Gargron Neither seem great. "Manage follows and followers" is clearer.
@Gargron Eugen have you considered "manage these ungrateful parasites who do not recognize my genius"? just throwing that one out there
@Gargron I'd say "Manage Subscriptions" and a toggle to choose following and followers individually. To my knowledge you can fedi with some blog systems/instance based software so technically everything in that list wouldn't necessarily be a user account.
@Gargron Relationship Manager sounds too parasocial
@Gargron is there room for a happy medium with "manage relationships?" because to me "relationship manager" sounds like a crappy corporate title for when the company doesn't want to use the word "salesman"
@Gargron Manage contacts?
@Gargron If recommend "subscription manager". If nothing else, "Relationship Manager" sounds like something which married people have to go through. Also, it sounds too corporate. 🙄
@Gargron Contacts Manager
Maybe just "Manage Following/Followers"? relationship is accurate but adds more words to the interface; people already know what following and followers are, but "relationship" is a new (albeit easy) item to think about
(also like, just my take, but "manage subscriptions" and "relationship manager" sound a bit public-relations-y? maybe it's just me. and 'relationship manager' is also a job title in some areas, IIRC?)
@Gargron manage associations?
@Gargron “Follow settings” seems simple.
Also: would love to be able to toggle whether I see someone’s boosts there. (Current UI for that is behind quite a few clicks IIRC.)
