@nolan What are your thoughts on using vs. your own instance for your main account? My main concern is how difficult it would be to migrate existing toots from one instance to another, should I ever need to leave .social.

@cs Meh I go back and forth between the two. I use my account more for admin work and helping to welcome newbies. Here I just post memes and jokes. Lots of folks follow me on both. I don't feel compelled to migrate anything over because I'm not too concerned with follower count or having a permanent public record. We'll probably disable public follower counts in anyway.

@nolan @cs There's probably potential for an instance that just deletes toots after x amount of days.

@simonv3 @cs Yep been considering that too, at least configurable on a per-user basis.

@cs @simonv3 @nolan lol i gotta say i appreciate you reppin my work comrade!

@bea @cs @simonv3 Wonderful. Is the source code available somewhere? :D

@nolan @cs @simonv3 nah but if you don't want moon phases it's a one line change i can tell you how to do. shhhh don't tell anyone it was so easy, they won't think i'm cool anymore if they ever did (;

@bea @simonv3 @nolan It's some real impressive work! Plus, I keep running into threads where people are wondering "wouldn't it be cool if someone made X?" and it's something you've already done 😁

@cs @bea @nolan ah, awesome!

Love that it's dependent on the phases of the moon.

What people have already been experimenting with blows my mind.

@simonv3 @nolan @cs

How would you manage the boosted toot ?

Removing them also or those would have another policy ?

@Balor @simonv3 @cs Probably boosting would have to belong to the booster because I don't think there's any way around that, in particular for remote toots. Even a deleted toot can be boosted remotely, and then it's there forever.

@simonv3 @nolan @cs , I thought about setting up an alternate profile to do just that. Delete toots after 24 hours. An ephemeral flag would be an awesome feature to have!
