well you are right but yet reality proved that practically wrong.
Except us spammers.
I appreciate Wills offer of a simple “relay” (technically not `Group`) very much.
There are really endless threads and heavy friendly fights how to do groups in ActivityPub right.
The next meeting about that is 2nd TUE in 2 weeks … … …
Thank you very much!
Now let's dream the dream of a <blink>federated</blink> forum based on the world’s leading federated social web standard:
If a user tags “meeting” with at least `startTime` then it would be in the calendar.
This would be magic.
Even if we would use any other system like mobilizon it would not help cause discourse is a nice UI/UX but walled garden.
As far as I imagine this was a plugin and it was installed in the beginning, maybe this
but in any version it didn't work and the (very) old links didn't work anymore.
And then it is caldav only.
Personally I'd just like to selfdogfood healthy and if redaktor is ready then I'd like to read all the input there.
So that all the posts are with context in the inbox.
This is also why I try to design https://github.com/redaktor/widgets-preview super-modular
For the long run, I hope, if we stick together the visual widgets in another grid and apply some functional widgets different then it would make a federated forum.
Well, maybe :)
To avoid spam, these groups should control how often posts from a given person are shared.
For example, however much I appreaciate what what Cory Doctorow is posting, I can't, for the life of me, follow him. I can't handle such dense infromation in one go, or at least, not using the current Mastodon threads UI.
Also, other bots should be banned, you should not be able to subscribe to these groups you're a bot.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
