Don't loose posts from rare posters anymore!

I had a problem with #Friendica, compared to Faceshit. I constantly read posts by only the most frequently posting accounts. And others were just lost on the timeline.

So I made a little script. Idea is to group contacts by posting frequency into couple of groups created just for this purpose, like "rare", "very rare" and "frequent". I run this script from time to time to automatically move contacts between these groups.


Script is written in Red, you can check the language out here: http://www.red-lang.org/

Thanks! I hope someone finds it useful.

Could something like this be integrated int to the main code?

It could be an option, not a forced feature?

It is an interesting and useful feature. Might be useful allowing users the options with out having add an extra set of code.

It is an interesting optional feature, but I'm afraid it can't be directly integrated in the main code and would require additional work to port it.
Good idea. I have this problem on #Mastodon. There are only 3 categories on Mastodon: Federated, Local, Home. I would like to see Home split into two: Home-heavy posters & Home-light posters.

Fediverse groups feature

this question comes up every so often.

Hashtags are great, but they're really just a type of index containing a specific type of topic. They have no notion of membership, and the index itself only contains posts that your instance is aware of.

The local instance timeline is useful if you have an instance that revolves around a certain topic or theme, but it's really just for checking out what's going on in your local instance. For large instances, or instances that have more than one topical theme in their community, this isn't useful for group communication.

Where groups ultimately differ is this: basically, it is a subscription relay that announces all posts that are addressed to it. Every member of the group receives every post addressed to the group. This differs from hashtags because you have a chance of missing posts that your instance doesn't know about, and you usually have a member that can administer group membership for moderation purposes.

Wirus nie odpuszcza, więc większość z Was pewnie grzeje kanapę 😜 Ewentualnie urządza wycieczki z Los Salonos do Kuchnia Del Sol i z powrotem 😉 Dla urozmaicenia tego czasu Just_in ma dla Was zarejestrowany materiał prosto ze swojej haciendy 😜

I've got one problem with #Friendica, and I think #fediverse in general. Very often people include links to #YouTube in their posts, or embed pictures from non-free and #tracking sites. I have #uBlockOrigin installed and it blocks such content in my timeline.

Perhaps services should copy/cache such content? YouTube videos could be replaced by static pictures with link to original video maybe? Don't you think it is a #privacy issue?

I like the idea of just presenting a static image or link to the original source. It clearly is a privacy problem.

It's definitely a privacy issue, but there is also sort of a solution:
pods can use camo to download and cache on behalf of their users. Nothing you can do as an individual, though, except block by default.

BTW, I'd say this is a privacy issue also if you don't trust the pod of every single person in your stream.

"Exclude potential comrades who don't agree enough" considered implicitly as "BAD", then build an exclusing structure between bad anarchists and good anarchists

The "power over ideas" is a good one too, but less than the "get people to follow them on social media", on social media

Use identity as a bridge, not as weapon comrade. With love <3
A bunch of good points. Thanks for your thoughts!
Well, actually, the stuff on the right is ideas, too. 'Real life' isn't real life, it's an idea. 'In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they're different.' [Attributed to Yogi Berra]

How can we make the journey from theory to practice? (Another set of ideas, but they might point to something real....)
Also, I like to think that online life is not less real than "real life"! The journey is simple, we stop posting, and start doing. Or wait, isn't posting also doing? ;-)

Somewhat radical, but mostly true.

#SurvaillenceCapitalism is a disease and #Privacy measures and #FreeSoftware are the #Vaccination.

If most people used free software and cared for their privacy we'd have #HerdImmunity and nobody could collect #BigData about society.

But if you use any #GAFAM ( #Google #Amazon #Facebook #Apple #Microsoft ) anti-services you are exposing everybody in your contacts list. You're basically an #AntiVaxer.

So if you have #WhatsApp #GMail or anything like that please remove me from your contacts.

Distributed GitHub. How cool is that!

#ForgeFed update! 😀

We're planning to implement in both #Pagure and #Gitea. Still waiting to finalize funding details with NLNet.

Implementation of author-hosted tickets in Vervis is in progress, and so is OAuth2. Next will come patches/MRs, and then we can finally release that Draft 1 along with a demo.

We're looking into making better docs, maybe a talk too. Would you prefer to read, or to see/hear me explaining? 😋

Ohai there, friends! Sorry for the bit of silence in the last couple of months, we don't like that either, so we figured it's time to make some noise! A few moments ago, we merged the API branch into develop, which means that starting now, all pods on the develop branch support the new, fancy API!

Note that this is not a stable release yet. Until diaspora* is official

Google's "Android partner" phones come with pre-installed apps that users can't delete, and that undermine their privacy and security. Users should be able to permanently uninstall these apps, but right now they can't. Tell Google you agree: https://action.privacyinternational.org/node/9
