EDIT: Doesn't currently work on Osada. No idea what their roadmap is.
The ability to follow external tags and feeds.
I'm able to follow blogs, #twitter feeds and #mastodon tags and I'm just scratching the surface! You just add them as a web address and Fca will even pull the #rss or #atom feed from the URL if it exists! Seriously, how cool is that?
I'm missing some comments (again), so I don't know if anybody already mentioned that, but on Hubzilla this feature needs to be enabled by the admin, and it says "Heavy system resource usage" underneath :wink:
No, the propagation of comments is normally very reliable. This also is true for AP, especially for AP. When the server that @Joltrast is using had already moved to AP, there wouldn't be any problem at all, since comment delivery is done to all persons who already participated in the thread.
The argumentation in this blog post doesn't reflect the "real life" scenario. AP does know two different kinds of comment delivery: By the commenting person or by the thread starter. Not every implementation does both - but Friendica does. We are always distributing our comments to our followers and everyone in the thread, as well to the thread starter who then will relay the comment to this person's followers. And when a comment arrives at some system, the receiver will check if the original post does exist (where this comment belongs to) and will fetch it as well. This guarantees complete threads.
I'm not sure why this that is incomplete, but this has nothing to do with AP.
i came here knowing it was a place under construction, which is part of it's charm for me. none of the things i say or do here are so important, again, for me, that a few missed comments here and there manage to upset the fun.
these are different networks trying to figure out how to talk to each other, and the fact that it works at all, and gets better all the time, is something i enjoy. sure, isn't perfect and will probably never be. if you look for something really reliable you should probably stick to one app, like diaspora.
The Friendica node of the thread starter is on version 2018.09. That one has no AP support. There was also a bug in one of the latest Hubzilla versions. So, the situation is comlicated.
I see incomplete threads on Hubzilla from time to time. But like I said it depends on the version of Hubzilla. The issue was found and fixed. And I don't see the problem anymore when an up-to-date Hubzilla has started a thread. On Friendica the threads are complete most of the time. This one seems to be an exception to that rule. 😀
I believe I'm on the latest stable. I have the option of pushing for the rc, but have decided to wait until it's released. If I need to see anything missing (which I don't believe I am in this thread) I can switch over to another instance running the rc.
Flying taxi services may take some time to arrive, but if you want to be among the first to pilot a manned multicopter, you'll have the chance in 2019. Lift Aircraft is preparing to debut a personal flight experience in an 18-prop electric VTOL aircraft for about the price of a skydive.
