If you can't see the poll, reply to this toot with your choice!

We need to know what to focus on after full federation & mobile app support is released!

@pixelfed If you support stories I'll probably get like 50 people to switch, that's the main feature that Instagram has over Pixelfed.

@DashEquals
Yeah, but there have to priotise mobile app though since that where people will usually browse the website.
@pixelfed

@ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed That's true, but a mobile app is pretty easy in comparison to stories.

@DashEquals
Yeah and stories must have high storage and bandwidth to operate. So good luck to @dansup
@pixelfed

@ahmd_amsyr @dansup @pixelfed High bandwidth, yeah, but high storage? They're deleted after 24h.

@DashEquals
OH yeah, there are deleted after 24 hours, but yeah, the bandwidth can be a problem but I think @dansup can tackle this problem.
@dansup @pixelfed

@ahmd_amsyr @DashEquals @pixelfed You can store 1TB of media using wasabi ($5/mth) or DO Spaces ($20+/mth). To give you an idea of how much media that is, pixelfed.social hosts over 50k media (images/video) using only 13.5gb of storage.

An 8mb photo gets optimized to around 260kb on average.

In the future you will be able to shard media across various CDNs/accounts for redundancy/cost efficiency with any S3 compatible API object storage provider.

@DashEquals @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Not officially, but it has worked since the beginning. The only issue is the optimization pipeline. It expects local files. I look forward to shipping proper S3 support in a future release!

@dansup @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Ah, great! I don't have enough local storage so once S3 is fully compatible I'll be able to set up my instance!

@DashEquals @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed Yeah, I am also working on a migration command/pipeline to move files between local/cloud or cloud/cloud. I need this for pixelfed.social.

@DashEquals @dansup @ahmd_amsyr @pixelfed same here, looking to do a S3 and Cloudfront deployment on AWS to give speed to serving images

@dansup
Wow 50 K of image only taking 13gb of storage, that is really good compression since the image I see on pixelfed do not look like it being compress.
@DashEquals @pixelfed

@inditoot @ahmd_amsyr @DashEquals @pixelfed Storage is cheap, and you only transcode it once like Mastodon.

@pixelfed What are circles and stories?

(I mean I know the words, but, but I can already upload a picture of a circle or a photograph of a written down story now.)

@paulakreuzer @pixelfed Story = temporary post that disappears after 24 hours.

Circle = no idea what that is.

@paulakreuzer @pixelfed Stories are posts that are temporary displayed and auto-delete after 24h (as far as I know, because i'm not super into instagram).

I don't know what circles are.

@pixelfed

Other 1: high quality previews (e g. sharing posts on Mastodon)

Other 2: completed federation. Comments, likes, boosts are still unreliable

Other 3: push notifications

@pixelfed
A link describing what what is would be great (except dark mode perhaps ;))

@pixelfed I choosed Stories, but collections are cool too.
(And the api for fedilab ?)

@pixelfed
Could somebody explain what Circles, Stories and Collections are exactly?

@KopfKrieg

Circles - Create a custom list of recipients for your posts. Instead of Public visibility, you can use a Circle to share it with your friends/family.

Collections - Curated lists or albums of multiple posts, displayed on a new Profile tab.

Stories - Ephemeral posts to your followers that disappear after 24 hours.

@pixelfed
1) Dark Mode so I can use the webpage
2) Circles so I can post freely
