Do you follow someone on Mastodon who does great posts but not-so-great boosts? Or maybe they boost too much?
You can mute just their boosts if you like:
1. Go to their profile
2. Click on "..."
3. Select "Hide boosts from"
This will not affect their own posts, which you will see as normal.
P.S. If you're new here, boosts are the equivalent of retweets or shares 🔁
@lienrag Oh that would be lovely.
Even better, some more complex filtering engine that would allow me to:
- Create groups of users;
- Define filters like, "for group X, hide toots that match a given regular expression";
- Specify to either hide the whole threads, or hide individual toots but have a marker like "N toots hidden" in appropriate places of a thread.
Does Mastodon codebase accept ideas/pull requests for power-user features anyway?
I believe so (for your last question), though if they're not matched with code they'll likely be on the bottom of the todo list.
And also can be vetoed for any reason by the core devs.
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!
