@firstname.lastname@example.org not sure the manual Follow function (that I only just noticed now has been moved to Settings) resolves the
nick quite right. I followed the https://feeds.twtxt.net/tiktok/twtxt.txt feed on my pod by pasting in the URL, but it adds it to the Following list without any nick attached.

(#6gszxta) @email@example.com Bloody LOL, I’ve always avoided the tiktok feed thinking it had something to do with the shitty social media platform, just now I went and looked at the feed and realised it was for the time 🤣
(#qjwta3a) Yeah, seriously give Goryon/Yarn a try. For a relatively young app, on an also relatively young social media platform, it works beautifully well and ties in really well with the web experience.
Welcome @firstname.lastname@example.org !
And who knows what the unexpected looks like…Wars, political shifts, etc. Hell, until 2019, I thought toilet paper was unlimited. Once again, toilet paper is starting to look like the currency of the new-world.
:) That’s a joke BTW. But is it? I don’t want to go back to using squirrels as toilet paper!
Might end up with another line to add to https://dont-be-evil.com the way this is playing out: https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/22/google-to-remove-youtube-apps-from-roku.html
(#cdl6foa) @laz makes an interesting point. @email@example.com what would happen with auto-updating for those of us with custom CSS etc? My git version is the same deal, always a different value as I auto-merge the changed CSS files when doing a git pull.
(#z3aysjq) At the risk of making the vote even more difficult, I don’t really mind either or have any strong opinion on the name. I don’t know what it means or what relationship it has to the original txtxt naming, but it also doesn’t evoke anything negative.
If there’s something nice that ties in well with the new Yarn.social naming though, then sure why not.
(#muqyewq) @firstname.lastname@example.org Nah it’s going pretty strong last I saw, and it’s still up. I got sick of the echo chamber and also just got generally more into proper decentralised social media (ala, here 😂) so haven’t really been on there after initially checking it out. They have withstood everything thrown at them so far and stayed online so I’ll give them credit for that at least.
(#sojctqq) [2 / 2]…made far worse by platforms such as Facebook etc using algorithms to encourage negativity and conflict.
I think communities such as the ones you find here have a massive advantage of not having those algorithms obviously, but also the nature of the platform (protocol?) is you kind of make your community around you. And the whole experience is more interpersonal (as much as can be in text exchanges) and full of less distractions. I could ramble on but you get it 😄
(#sojctqq) Yeah I think behind a keyboard and monitor has made people act quite differently as a society towards each other. For example people will be rarely so radical or lean to such political extremes in person, but online is a different matter. I think also this grows exponentially on larger online spaces - the reason why as communities grow they tend to become more ‘noisy’ and what some may deem ‘toxic’. I think we’ve all seen that in some way or another, on those platforms [1⁄2]
Really is something to aspire to.
Heh. I didn’t even realise Librewolf does this out of the box (I’m actually on Void Linux)
(#sg2wy5q) @email@example.com Yeah I agree; my issue is not that the technology can be used in such a powerful way, it’s the fact the data has to come from these big tech companies gathering it up all the wrong way.
In any case, I already use the government mandated QR check in app thing, I will not consent my data to be vacuumed up and given over by the likes of Bookface and Google 😆
Any wonder I de-Google.
(#jj56spq) @firstname.lastname@example.org Indeed, great for those of us privileged, but for anyone on an extremely limited internet connection (there’s still some 3rd world places I believe that only have dial-up, of all things), resources like these would be invaluable.
What a resource this is: https://www.repairfaq.org/
Full of no-nonsense repair guides for all sorts of electronics. Sure a lot of it is based on fairly old stuff (VCRs for example) but the general electronic principals can carry over anyway.
(#ctdtuta) I’m assuming the slight alignment difference I was talking about is simply the difference in font styling/sizing between browsers, as it’s proper text we’re dealing with. Might always just be a case of getting it ‘near enough’ 🤔
(#ctdtuta) @email@example.com You’re not wrong. Inkscape puts out a lot of extra stuff in the output. I use a CLI program called svgo to optimize the svg files. In the case of that logo, it went from 6kb down to 2.9kb!
Maybe @firstname.lastname@example.org knows more about how to get more consistency.
The fact I had to make it a bit unaligned in Inkscape to make it aligned in the web view has me rattled a bit 🤣
(#ctdtuta) @email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org might do this better than me (the way it lined up in Inkscape is slightly different than how it is on the site so I had to compensate in Inkscape…bit weird) anyway, give this a try and see the difference: https://files.mills.io/download/twtxt.net.min.svg
(#pftowua) @email@example.com Funny you should say that because I when I was first bringing https://we.loveprivacy.club to life I had a similar thought, but then with the new static discovery thing and also the option to switch on public viewing of the cached posts I didn’t think of it any more, thinking it would probably just be extra complexity at the time. I guess the question is how difficult (or not) would it be to implement? I like the idea personally.
