Okay let me be clear here, those are reactions to announcements. I didn't mean to say reactions would be available for normal posts. Not at the moment. This is not a committment to add reactions to everything down the line though. More of an experiment.
But yes of course you can react with custom emoji, come on
@Gargron That is a great update! I try to do those announcements when I do things like instance updates
@Gargron So cool!
@Gargron I am EXTREMELY pro reactions.
@alyx I'm not sure what this means
@Gargron I cannot wait for this!
@feld thanks! I hadn't heard about this.
@Gargron can’t wait to see eve send “I’m gay” to all 200,000 dot social users
@Spacedrake This is why it will likely be restricted to admins only
@Gargron what a disappointment
Oh nice, I like. I am sure there are some users on my instance who will be happy to stop following my personal account which I also use for talking about admin stuff.
Are links allowed in these? I can definitely see wanting to do something like "Hey everyone! I just updated to the latest release, which gives us x, y, z, and a bunch more little things - check out [this toot] for more details."
@Gargron now i can announce to myself and even react on it
@Gargron oh no. and another thing, is it possible to create custom reactions?
@Gargron can you react with custom emojis?
@Gargron can you include minion emoji reactions plea se
@Gargron so,,,,, I will have to continue simply replying to everyone's posts with a cloaca emoji, I see
@Gargron Oohhhhh, man, I was so happy for a minute... but here's hoping!
@Gargron Eugen... thank you
@Gargron if the order in which it was added is preserved then people could
I use Discord too
@Gargron Y E S
Many reacts incoming thé future will be tiring for the people i follow 🙏
@Gargron Ho ok
@baerd On peut lire la déception dans ce post :').
@Sylvhem "sad reacts only"
@Gargron have you considered not making them publicly visible - as in the discussion of how many followers and being a contest? Then it would still be useful, but not be a barrage of x number of people said this.. but those other people said that.
and are you going to have separate sounds for each one? *boop* 😺
@Gargron if you didn't expect this reaction i can't believe you actually participate in this Federated Social Network lmfao
@feld UX from hell!
@Gargron important questions.
Can other instances see the annoucements? Or are they just for the instance?
@magicalmilly They can't. Logged in users only.
