#TheresLife members. I have a question for you. Should we use a fork of Mastodon called Hometown? It has a few extra features. Including:
- Local-only posting (a privacy setting to not federate certain toots)
- Better reading features
- Better lists (this would be awesome)
- A lot of interesting stuff planned
It is also meant to be simple and not stray far from Mastodon (unlike Glitch for example).
More info here:
Please vote and (more importantly) reply with your reasoning.
@masterofthetiger I voted to upgrade based on an assumption and a condition: that we would be able to change back if the differences turned out to be unsuitable to the kind of group we are. So you might clarify that point. I for one can’t really grasp the differences from mere descriptions from the developers. I have to see it in action, and I’d like to see it. But, *can* we switch back? Would you agree to that as a condition for voting for the change?
@malanrich Yes. That is a good idea. The only hassle would be database migrations, but that shouldn't be so hard (and if anything goes wrong, I will have backups of all of it).
I will probably upgrade it (while addressing all the concerns people bring up). I don't see any cons since we would have the option to switch back.
I voted no... because I'm not on theres.life and I don't want to miss out on the local-only posts.
Yes please! I want posts longer than 500.
Sounds like a winner. Go for it!
I also find I sometimes wish for longer character limit.
@zudn I recently expanded the character limit to 5432.
Ah, nice! Thanks.
I notice the need for it when I'm quoting and inserting from the bookmarklet. I tend to select good chunks of text.
@masterofthetiger i voted yes because local-only posts would be good - also a reason why people should have accounts here as well as elsewhere
