@cassolotl out of curiosity, which of these is the current behavior on mainline mastodon? "hide the image" is the current behavior on glitchfork.
@Felthry Current behaviour on mainline Mastodon is for the image to remain visible until you click the eye icon in the corner, even if you have clicked "show less" and rehidden the text.
@Felthry I made an issue for it on the Mastodon Github issue list over two years ago and tried badgering Gargron but it didn't work! https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/4399 Something today reminded me of it, and now we have polls so I can get feedback from average Mastodon users instead of us weirdos who hang out on the Github list. :P
@cassolotl I mean I voted rarely because I tend to use faves to mean "yeah I kind of approve of this post" and sometimes I have to use it for "I want to come back to this later"
But I use them more rarely for the second because it feels impolite sending a network event and a notification to someone just because I want to remember a status exists later - like making noise for another mastopeep because I'm busy now feels rude.
Hence why I'm hoping the fave/bookmark split makes it into 3.0.2
@morix The bookmark feature got merged so that seems likely! :) I'm just wondering if they will be like "okay yeah faves are just a social signal, we don't need to provide a list of faved posts when bookmarks exist"...
@cassolotl but I can see browsing/searching old faves *also* being a useful feature, I mean if you're going to send network traffic and hassle someone's notifications may as well store s number in a database.
@morix Oh yeah, I forgot that some instances let you search faves! Hmm, that seems fine then, but also the list of toots you've faved is maybe still not useful as a feature on its own?
@cassolotl I feel like I should mention that this instance has a separate bookmark feature that I use more often, in addition to the star feature default masto has
@cassolotl I haven't suffered real distress over this, but my TL is pretty tame. Mostly I'm just irritated that the natural "undo" action only undoes half of what the "do" action brings about.
@bstacey @cassolotl though show more only shows the text, you have to click the image to see it, and so can click to immediately hide it if you need to, though show less probably should hide everything again as it's more obvious than the little eye icon for hiding the picture, the current state does reflect the way you compose a post i.e.you can separately hide the text and/or image
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
