Here are some of the major features of the upcoming v2.0 as of now:
- Custom emojis
- New emoji picker
- New emoji images (twemoji)
- Emoji autosuggestions
- Ability to define themes for admins and select a theme in preferences for users
- No more private toots sent over OStatus
- When only one image/gif attached to toot, it's displayed uncropped in detail/public view
- New error page with elephant friend
I dunno, would you be happy with just that?
@taiz No, I don't think so. It leads to a rather terrible atmosphere. There's a very small margin where people use it for good, like "look at this great artwork", but usually it gets used as a faux-reply except addressed at one's followers, as a sort of invitation to dogpile. Even when calling out like that is acceptable, putting bad content into your followers' timelines leads to bad moods. And when it's used to chain own train of thought... It's like self-replying, but with a lot more clicking
@Gargron @taiz I don't agree with this. Of course people misuse it, but on the other hand is it the #1 feature from Twitter I miss in here. I used it a lot. And yes also sometimes to criticize tweets, but most of the time to add valuable extra information.
Also don't forget that people are already able to make screenshots of toots, and comment on that.
@Gargron @taiz Maybe the issue needs to be thought of under the heading of link previews in general? It is good for discovery to see the title at least of quoted content, if not also a preview image. Toots would just be a special case of quoted content in general. A preview--of a webpage, or of a toot--can provide important context for what I have to say about it.
@gargron Are there any plans for letting a user have full-text search of their own toots? It's hard to find your old posts if you ever need to link them for reference: I either forget to tag, forget which tag I used, or the tag is so popular that my results are buried under other people's posts.
@Gargron toss in audio uploads and you got yourself a deal, partner! 🤝
Personally? I'd be pretty pleased.
Also: I know you feel obligated to users and want their feedback and all, and that's valid, but this IS your project, I mean -- you're the one who has to set the milestones.
Sorry, I'm gettin' all mushy here. ^_^
What I'm trying to say: It looks good to me. And I hope you get very little crap about it from people.
Stuff takes time. Code is work.
Thank you for taking your time and working on this stuff. <3 ^_^
@shel @Gargron also what the fuck are you doing @djsundog https://social.wxcafe.net/media/k8NSxHsSre5cDOMOnOw
@bea so hard to only fav this once but I must be strong
