This is new & exciting. I'm looking forward to meeting lots of positive tooters 😁
I've been an indie author - #histfic - for 6 years & learn something every day. Admittedly, I forget loads of stuff too 🤪
Only thing is that interactions are limited. You won't be notified of boosts, likes, or replies (though replies are coming in the future).
Hey #Writing people, what tags do you use to post about your writing, your process, your published works?
Looking forward to speaking at ActivityPub Conf 2019!
@ontploffing Yep, I see it on mine too. Just blocked that domain, so they should be cleared out soon.
@switchingsocial Absolutely right.
@natharari Not automatically (last I knew) -- it's up to every instance to block it.
#introduction Hi! I'm JuJu, local sheep and writer!
I'm known more on Ao3 and tumblr, but I finally made the choice to move here as well. I've written for Hellsing, Pixar's Coco, and PLVSAA (Layton vs. Ace Attorney), as well as others.
You can find my fan works at Ao3 (Just look for the sheep!) https://archiveofourown.org/users/Jubalii/pseuds/Jubalii
On the note of fake followers, before I blocked gab.com on our https://m.abunchtell.com instance I noticed very bot-like behavior from seemingly real accounts on that instance -- very reminiscent of birdsite bots.
Definitely worth thinking about how we guard against misinformation and astroturfing in the #fediverse as this gets more prevalent. Domain blocks alone probably won't be enough -- the classic social media features we include or leave out matter, too.
@bix I saw one but want to make sure we've removed them all.
Some good ActivityPub Conf 2019 news: we got exactly the right number of submissions (all excellent!) to be able to fit all of them in and still do an unconference on Sunday. I'm extremely excited about this lineup!
We'll be making the actual schedule publicly available next week.
There are only a few slots left to register as an attendee btw! If you'd like to come, don't delay! https://dustycloud.org/blog/activitypub-conf-2019/
@cj Hey CJ! Hope all is well.
We're looking to build a new AP application from scratch (details here: https://phabricator.write.as/T671) and wanted to do it on the latest go-fed version.
I was curious what the status of `apcore` is -- I know it says under construction, but is it possible to build on yet? Or should we stick with the `activity` pkg?
nature, words, dogs, software, privacy, music, and the moment.
