In-reply-to » @bender Interesting that it performed so poorly when your tried your own relay. How many clients were accessing it at once? Overall I'm definitely not sold on it yet, while I do like fiddling around with new protocol stuff I am also very wary of the crypto-libertarian ethos that is driving the Nostr project.

@ocdtrekkie@twtxt.net And where are your “messages” stored? 😅

In-reply-to » @axodys I tried Iris, yes. Is OK. I proved to myself that Nostr will not work with just my own relay. Even if the latency is 1ms, all the clients will crawl to a stop with only my relay. It seems it is meant to use many relays, which I don’t like.

@bender@twtxt.net Out of interesst, what sort of latency were you getting with just one client? 🤔

Are you both sure it isn’t built on some Web3 distributed networking protocol? 😅

@axodys@octobloc.xyz How do you feel about the fact that Nostr/Damus is really a distributed blockchain-type network though? 🤔 Does that not bother you? 😅

In-reply-to » Would it be horrible to add PDF as a file upload type to yarn.social? Or, can it already do that and I'm just being a lunkhead about it? Every time I've tried to upload a PDF I've gotten an error.

It might be possible to just allow more types. 🤔 Do we want to make this configurable at all from the settings? 🤔

In-reply-to » It is a bit strange. When I view a YARN thread, I cannot reply. I always get an Error 400.

@carsten This happens from time-to-time for some folks, really not sure why though as I’ve never been able to reproduce it. Please delete your cookies for your pod and that should resolve the problem. I might look at either rewriting the CSRF code or use a different library… 🤔

In-reply-to » What looks to me to be pretty nasty transphobia was posted in the yarn.social IRC channel.

My silence initially was not an invitation of my position on this. Both my wife and I read through the material, the (not to be linked) twt, and IRC backlog. Making fun (humour) of any protected class is NOT OK. I agree 👌

In-reply-to » The Nostr protocol really is a cryptobros wet dream. On Amethyst (the Android client), every account automatically gets a pointless blue checkmark - before it even has a name. You get the promise of free speech, in the marketing, but in reality, that predictably translates to bots, spamming vague porn ads and other suspicious links, new users begging for followers for a follow in return and most prominent of all, the people utilizing the great feature, to beg for cryptocoin change, without doing anything else and not getting any.

@thecanine@twtxt.net Wow ! 😱 I certainly didn’t want to try it before, and certainly don’t nw 😅

In-reply-to » I’ve been to the office almost every day for the last 5 weeks (debugging WiFi in our various buildings) and it really took a toll on me. I’m exhausted. It’s so much overhead to drive to the office, a ridiculous waste of resources and time. How did we ever consider this normal? 😨

@movq@www.uninformativ.de @lyse@lyse.isobeef.org yeah I will never work in a centralised place every again, ever. It’s just insane.

actually from my reading and understanding I think it’s even worse than this.

They claim that the platform runs on a distributed network protocol of relay servers that I believe are managed by Nostr/

so basically, this is very much centralized and you have to place trust in both the app and relay service.

In-reply-to » Damus is an interesting app, but adoption and discovery are big issues right now. Crypto-dross is dominating the global timeline and nothing about the available content is going to be remotely appealing to a typical social media consumer.

@axodys@octobloc.xyz Interesting app and “social platform”, too bad it’s built on a centralised distributed network of relays 😅

In-reply-to » @abucci I'm open to some feature flagged ideas? 🤔

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I think so. The backend already knows how to measure “inactive feeds” so that shouldn’t be too hard to build, just have to build an interface around it “somehow” – I think I recall telling you about a weekly email you’d get, but if you haven’t gotten one, then you’ve been nuking these *zit(s) before that 😅

In-reply-to » 👋 Hello @amyzit, welcome to Buccipod, a Yarn.social Pod! To get started you may want to check out the pod's Discover feed to find users to follow and interact with. To follow new users, use the ⨁ Follow button on their profile page or use the Follow form and enter a Twtxt URL. You may also find other feeds of interest via Feeds. Welcome! 🤗

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Really don’t need to store the real email at all, just a token, using the same reset password jwt flows. Let it expire after like a few minutes. Click the link, verify token, cool, redirect to login, Otherwise, drop it on the floor.

I should als note that the Email field is optional. Will making that mandatory slow things down? 🤔 Be interesting to see what these bots are using? 🤔 Make email verification before creation a thing? 🤔
