Oh, I just realized the screenshot on joinmastodon.org hasn't been updated since the single-column UI became the default 😬
Let's play a game of "can I scroll somewhere on my home feed where I can take a screenshot without any shitposts in it"
@Gargron Σ(っ °Д °;)っ
@gargron You need to scare away the sort of users who prefer single-column on desktop.
We don't need their kind!
@apLundell I use multi-column on one account and single-column on others. It depends on how you use the account. Either way I'm not interested in scaring anyone off.
@Gargron *zooms in several times*
@Gargron new Mastodon orientation page
@Gargron why, it can look great on picture!
@Gargron embrace the shitposts
I already lost.
i would guess "no"
(but just a guess)
@Gargron No i think you wouldn't do it.
@Gargron I wouldn't worry too much - my onboarding experience was smooth and straightforward.
@alangmarz I've had a UX study done with random people with no tech background recently and we actually lose a lot of people in onboarding
I'm working on fixing that
@Gargron That's interesting, but why it's important to do studies. I read into the detail around Mastodon; watched a few YouTube videos. The hardest part was choosing an instance, but once I discovered .online was developed by you and is general, that was that.
@maique Thanks Maique. Nice to find another micro.blogger here.
@alangmarz There’s a few of us around 😊
@Gargron it wasn't until I read your post that I realized I turned on single column as "an experiment" and it's still on months later and I love it.
We've got to change that. Our UI is still the old one.
