My boyfriend was using Pixelfed for months before he found out about the local/network timelines.
He doesn't understand the point, and told me I should make it easier to discover accounts and content.
Not everyone uses these platforms the same, and I wouldn't be surprised if most people never check local or network timelines.
@dansup hiding public timelines makes sense for pixelfed but not for mastodon imo. mastodon sites have more of a community niche because of being primarily text posts, whereas pixelfed is generalistic due to being more oriented to media sharing
@dansup also "hiding" it in pf would basically be just stripping out incomplete code at this point wouldnt it
@dansup We're still pushing for a hashtag-based Discover as the main way to find stuff though, right?
@trwnh Oh I see, yeah we squashed a lot of bugs recently! I have a bunch of exciting stuff to push for our next release in the next few weeks. Mostly bug fixes and federation improvements, but I was able to squeeze in a few surprises 😁
