@wion @nex3 Back in the day, I did some work (as did others) on building "reading lists" structured as OPML (supplemental XML format for RSS feeds). I had a platform that would let you subscribe to a person and optionally, if you trust that person, subscribe to their reading list and even a step deeper and opt to subscribe to all reading lists from those within that person's reading list. It was distributed/federated system (just about 8 years ago ;)
digging into mastodon code... I want to add a button to a modal with an iframe in it so I can have my own easy to edit content for admin announcements etc for users of my instance.
Is there a way to open the getting started modal pages again?
@Gargron @anildash @migurski idk, maybe if this was all a centralized system then sure, that would be very risky. but if I am running an instance of my own, that risk decision is my own. maybe I just want to share user-gen voice recordings, or public domain lectures etc. with the variety of communities setting up instances, these sorts of restrictions start to become less logical imo. i know, it's open source so edit the code then ;-)
@Gargron @anildash @migurski The concern is legit but the same applies to videos (with copyrighted music) so what is the difference really? Also, this should be a setting for an instance admin imo (allowed file formats). So it seems like an odd decision considering it is a decision made for all instances, not just yours?
