If anyone felt inclined to boost these polls to get them out to the wider Mastodon userbase that'd be pretty awesome - I want to get some solid figures on how average non-Github-using Mastodon folks use these features and expect them to work, so that I can throw them at the devs!
I'll stop boosting these soon. :D I'm just trying to make sure I reach people in as many timezones as possible!
@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?
@cadence It's disabled?? Weird!
@cadence Yeah, that makes sense! Thank you for your comments. :)
@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
Rarely to never, because I mostly use it as a means of communication in a conversation.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
