Here are some thoughts on @write_as features like email subscriptions that haven't made it into #WriteFreely yet, the modular product design we're aiming for, and how we're trying to keep WF accessible to writers around the world.
We've got all the basics there, but there's still plenty of design questions to answer as far as team structures, how granular permissions need to be, and how to make this work across all of our composable projects.
We're keeping everything on Write.as for now so we can iterate faster and worry less about wrong assumptions. But when it's ready, we'll bring it into #WriteFreely to give everyone the same ability to create collaborative blogs.
This is a common pattern you see in the #fediverse: "RT @firstname.lastname@example.org". Of course, Twitter doesn't speak AP. But why not at least bridge the gap for users and link to the profile?
Those are my ideas behind this latest pull request: https://writefreely.org/pull/319
For anyone interested in helping us test out this new version, we've just put out a release candidate for you to try today, and would love your feedback!
Hmm, wonder what's going on with these sites... #WriteFreely instances with different branding and a suspiciously large number of users / posts 🤔
