@pixelfed reminder: I love you.
@pixelfed one of the points is that none of these are a tumblr alternative (and pixelfed isn't either). tumblr has some very specific behavior that a federated version would need to inherit.
@pixelfed tumblr has this concept of "carried reblogs", where you reblog a post and add your own text, and if someone reblogs *your* post, then the original post comes with it. and a "post" overall consists of this chain of reblogs that shows up as one continuous block on your dash. it's an important part of tumblr's functionality; it's why many of its community's quirks exist.
@obw @pixelfed Eh, seems like replicating the core functionality of Tumblr requires a photo wall mode and a similar full page post fee. I've seen the photo wall implemented on a few gay torrent trackers quite nicely, makes browsing quite enjoyable.
@pixelfed Misskey might be interesting, but their home page isn't very informative :-/
@Skoll3 what does federation mean?
@pixelfed If anyone wants help setting up Pleroma using Heroku and S3, I'm probably releasing a guide in the next while. 💚
@pixelfed while a lot of people do post just text, fanartists in particular are the ones being affected by tumblr. And fanartists post... art.
@wolfie well, Pixelfed is an Instagram alternative. But that means it's image-based, which seems better for artists?
@wolfie Sorry, I think now maybe you were agreeing with me :)
@Magess no worries ^^ yeah I was reacting to pixelfed thinking Mastodon is a Tumblr alternative cos it really isn't, pixelfed could definitely be a good place for artists!
