Instantiation policy discussion topic: boosts of non-oulipo-compliant toots from global instantiations. I think I could automatically prohibit that; should I try?
I'm not saying I want to! Just tossing it out for community discussion.
@rjl20 I’m okay with status quo- I got much admiration for any who try to stay on oulipo as main, as I did fail to do. And if this is your main, you might want to boost a non-compliant post now and again.
If an oulipo account was to do that kind of thing a lot, I would turn off “look at boosts” for that account, or just block it.
@ranjit Oh, I forgot you could turn off boosts for individual accounts! Amaroq is missing that option, but it honors it if you turn it on from a browsing window. Good to know.
@rjl20 I think you should. I find it distracting and jarring
@rjl20 I'm torn. I'm turning off boosts from folks who post noncompliant stuff, but now I miss stuff. I wish a noncompliant boost was a link, is what I wish.
@rjl20 I do non-compliant boosts, and I think I stand out for that. Not as many as I might - it's kinda bad form? Happy that folks would block my boosts - also happy if you block boosts across this instantiation.
Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
