so now that features are really starting to diverge between different #activitypub sites we really need a way to come together and decide how these little bits can fit together. for instance #misskey has a ton of features they have implemented recently like polls and reactions other then 'star',
the masto fork now.kibousoft.co.jp has implemented #bbcode in their instance and it looked like misskey is doing something similar with https://misskey.xyz/notes/5b7c8643894f8100445b1f28
#friendica and #diaspora both support #bbcode but use a different subset so as not to be totally compatible. example here: https://social.yl.ms/display/e18176ef165ac32118316de612617438
there is a mastodon instance that implemented #markdown in posts but not sure what the URL is or how they are doing.
@wakest I mean this discussion makes sense when comparing different asynchronous chat sites but there are a lot of kinds of content that could potentially federate
@darius I KNOW! thats why we need to get stated chatting about how we want it to work in a compatible way NOW while we are still in this area fresh. We dont want to have to look back 10 years from now with 20 new versions of markdown bbcode activityhubub language we have to re learn everytime we use a different service...
@wakest The obvious solution here -- which I think Misskey is doing?, is "render to an HTML, and clientside display a strictly restricted subset of HTML".
Input methods can be whatever, then.
