I love that I’m seeing more and more posts to Lemmy from Mastodon.
This one feature finally ties Lemmy in with the rest of the fediverse by providing the lacking feature: making top level posts. Lemmy (along with friendica!) will lead the way in making “groups” and forums in the fediverse, accessible from any platform you choose.
A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.
Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
Getting started on Fediverse;
@JackFromWisconsin indeed! great to see Lemmy improving its compatibility
Lemmy has to make workarounds, because mastodon does not support subjects…
Would be great to see subject lines supported in Mastodon. Anything that helps intercompatibiity is a win-win
@JackFromWisconsin @jakob I think, on the contrary, that’s right: Mastodon is a microblogging software and there’s no need for Mastodon to support a complete display of “subject + text” messages.
There are few projects that support these messages (Friendica, Hubzilla and bloggers like writefreely and plume) but they are more than enough 😅
@piratepost @JackFromWisconsin @jakob problem is, mastodon just strips all the body text of a friendica post with a title. It’s not even close to degrading gracefully.
It uses it as attachment…
And yes… i would prefer, if mastodon could handle subjects…
