Presenting my weekend project : The Frontpage of Mastodon. A simple website to discover new content on mastodon. I simply archive all posts in the federiverse and rank them with the hackernews algorithm.

@ruben_wolff I'm curious on how you define "all posts". I understand that since you surface the posts with the most boosts there is a greater chance that you might see them. But would you mind explaining your thought process on this.

And I see you are counting "replies" (is that the meaning of the right arrow?), but they seem to be one off from the number of replies I see under the posts. Am I reading this right?


When i say all i acyually mean i am reading this feed from a couple of the big servers hoping i get "all" public and listed posts. But if there are servers which have no connection to the big public instances ill miss it
