👉 LÊo Allowing unicode characters in user names would be good. A lot of people speak English as a second language and it's unfair to prevent them from using their real names if their native languahe alphabet does not conform to ASCII. I wouldn't oppose requiring an anglicized version of names as well.

Chase May How do I view the global feed? Trying to find ppl to follow but don't want to be siloed into following based on "trending"... Would love a view that I know is unfiltered...
🏕ī¸ Autumn Hitting the search button will show the whole chronological timeline.

🤔 David Visit /search for the truly "global" pipe of new posts. So far everything here is very minimal. If community interest persists then it might be fun to make a few community sites as trackers and aggregators of particular threads. Notably, it would be easy to distribute since all replies are ASCII and take up little space to store.
👁ī¸ Mbladra Better searching, especially by hashtag topics

👉 LÊo I like that idea, it could be used to create open proto-communities

đŸļ Freeman Unique replies. Without a like button, people would resort to +1 comments, which drowns out real comments
👉 LÊo +1 (ironically)
😏 Yt L. Collapsing threads, or toggling a "collapse by default" behavior. It would make scrolling the trending page easier.

🌚 Nlggers It's my personal belief that the creation of filter bubbles may be one of the worst side effects of moving from anonymous BBS systems over to boards featuring persistent identity. Via an older style BBS system it was difficult to isolate yourself into a corner of overall thought via filtering of users and posts, rather discussions were simply grouped by topic/thread. At least in my view this is preferable to columns of siloed opinions or points of view.
🐊 Andromeda Pie I'm curious. Are you out as a racist to your family and friends, or is it just when you're hiding behind anonymity online?
🏕ī¸ Autumn Option to block on a per-user basis.

🌌 Tom self-replies, also think that the circle containing the first 3 letters of your username should change to your emoji if set
đŸ˜ļ Pipas_ if it's getting rid of the notion of Avatars having this clear 3 letter avatar does seem pointless

👉 LÊo The first three letters thing looks weird. I guess its useful for people that have multiple accounts and want to make sure which account they're posting from? I like the no self-replies feature, it prevents people from using replies to extend their posts.

📉 Bill Hiding posts that you've already thoroughly read/discussed
Chase May For me, I'd like a read / unread filter. Maybe that's fairly different than what you're imagining.

đŸŽ¯ Gallium Oxide Hyperlinkable replies (like Twitter) and use of the browser notification API
đŸ”ģ Trinity I don't believe they'll add this feature, because the idea is to make a less-addicting social media app versus something like Twitter.

👉 LÊo What is a hypelinkable reply? I apologize, I don't use twitter. If you're talking about something like a "permalink" than this platform already kind of has that. All you have to do is copy the URL in the "reply" button.
Chase May It looks like the time-since label on posts is a direct link to the content, as well. This is perhaps more "semantic" than copying the link from the reply button.

đŸĨ¨ Shruthi Idk what notifications do now but would be great to be notified when someone replies to you
🌘 Alana like a push notification?
2y, 3w 1 reply
đŸļ Freeman I like the lack of push notification and badge counters. Those provoke some sort of innate gratification in me which other social media has been preying on.

👉 Oscar There's a small counter and a red indicator in the sidebar whenever there's been an action (follow, reply, mention).
