so now that features are really starting to diverge between different sites we really need a way to come together and decide how these little bits can fit together. for instance has a ton of features they have implemented recently like polls and reactions other then 'star',

the masto fork has implemented in their instance and it looked like misskey is doing something similar with

· · Web · 4 · 3 · 2

and both support but use a different subset so as not to be totally compatible. example here:

there is a mastodon instance that implemented in posts but not sure what the URL is or how they are doing.

@wakest last I recall from 4 years ago, hubzilla supported bbcode (which I can't stand) and optional markdown that had some issues at the time. I hope markdown gets first class support.

@fla ahh thanks looking at this now

but it looks like posts made with on get partially rendered correctly by . would like to make a diagram of the whole fediverse network and how the rendering of different things plays out.

@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...

@deadsuperhero @kaniini not sure additions to activitypub would be in the scope of litepub tho they are trying to be *lighter*

thinking more like BIPs or whatever they call them these days. “feature” extensions that could be lightly standardized in a super communal non “official” way

@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.
