@rustyk5 What was the navelgazing section of k5 called? Was it just "meta"?

@Alisca Ha, OK, if it is account-based filter, rather than a message-based filter, that's a different issue. The "followed-user filtering" use case I was thinking about was following a multilingual user, and only displaying messages in specified languages.

@Alisca Hm, I agree. Are the filters supposed to apply to followed users in addition to local/federated timelines?

@julianruf It's an interesting problem. The federated timeline seems too massive to interact with regardless of languages, but I imagine local timelines are also unwieldy for larger instances.

So I have to select all the languages I don't understand to filter them from my feed? Wouldn't opting in to specific languages be an easier filtering UI?

Just set up my personal Mastodon at mastodon.ar.al

Follow me there:

mastodon.ar.al/users/aral/remo

You can mention me there using @aral

When/if you can, I would highly urge you to set up your own Mastodon instance. Currently requires tech knowledge/isn’t seamless (and getting it there will be a big challenge) but this is a great start and a very good step in the right direction.

Lots of love to @eugen and the dev team :)

If I ever make it back to the Berenstein timeline, I wonder if I'll remember my time here.
