In #pixelfed, how can I follow a user from another server, by knowing the user's username and host? I see no widget for searching there.
#Socialhome design concept
Long overdue, but better late than never =)
This concept doesn't strive to be the best solution but aims at exploring ideas on how to change interface to achieve best user experience.

Any service in the #fediverse which has messenging facility, or integrates well with a messenging service?
Well, ignore my previous post. I've come to a broader question: is there a way to register an account, how to say that - in the #Fediverse itself? So that somehow your toots at a #Mastodon server, your pictures at a #Pixelfed instance, your #Plume blogs etc. - is the same you, and once someone followed you at any of those, he/she has got all your content.
If I search for a tag, am I searching across all the #Fediverse?
I'm convinced that every website should be #ActivityPub capable. All dumb walled gardens would be destroyed when we do this.
Scuttlebutt comes close, but misses a few marks. Some features are client dependant. But the underlying application for all is the same server process which you can interact with using scripts or other program processes.
I tried to reply to all inline but ran up over 1000 chars.
@pioneer I don't know of a single suite with all of those, but many of them are available as Nextcloud modules.
Any suggestions for a newbie on what distributed network has the following:
- long posts with good formatting
- messaging, both private and group chats
- very nice and modern design
- mobile apps for Android and iOS
- events and calendar
- private groups/channels for a limited audience
- moderation, be able to block a user from a group
- cross-posting from and to other services or a way to write a script for that (I'm a programmer myself)
Python, paragliding, socionics
