@varx @bespectacled_fuzz @rick_777 Genie: You have ONLY ONE wish.

Me: I'd like one wish please.

Genie: Well yes, I told you. ONE wish.

Me: I'd like 4294967297 wishes.

Genie: Yes, ONE. Now get to the point.

Me: I want a cucumber sandwich.

*Genie pulls a sandwich out of thin air*

Me: Ice cream?

*Genie makes it so*

Me: How about a car?

*A fancy car appears*

[4294967294 wishes later…]

Me: For the next person, I want your wish counter to be 1 bit only.

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

I thought on a list of kinds of networks/software we might not have (I'm not sure) and it'd be cool to have: Github-like (!!!). Streaming. Comics-specific, like the Spanish Faneo. Tumblr-like with tags that allows for gallery of illustrations, comics, or portfolio (Pleroma??). Patreon or ko-fi-like. Networks of stores for artists. And, for fun, roll20 comes to mind as well. :)

Mastodon specific suggestion: given than Mastodon, unlike the birdsite, allows for a decent bio in your profile, could the field to see what you're writing comfortable be larger?

Examples of cases where this if true could be a bug: creators receiving feedback from fans or potencial collaborators. Marginalized people looking for people alike in the same geographical location or far away.

Yesterday I read an article saying that if you receive a message from someone you don't follow in another instance (and, I imagine, a different network) you won't see it. Is this true? I guess it'd be a feature to some but for me, it'd be a bug.

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

Would be cool if you could add a content warning / mark as private / don't show on public timeline after tooting.

Every new account somewhere reminds me that I don't have a name.

Hadn't I read news on Huygens on a newspaper in 2005, I may have been a different person today.
