Congratulations @t on 100 Days of Positive Posts! Thanks for making the world kinder and richer!

 

Mobile UI suggestion: Chat bubble or menu option to create post from home screen · Issue #24 · microdotblog/issues https://github.com/microdotblog/issues/issues/24

The Timeline, Mentions, and Favorites all have a "chat" icon in the upper right to allow one to create a status update. Why not also include this on the main homescreen (or a "Create Post" button just above Timeline) so there's one less step to posting? It also makes it easier for new users to figure out how to post.

 

Internet Archive moves toward ignoring Robots.txt for more commonsensical archival procedure.

Perhaps putting these fields and the phone number onto the main account page would be better UI? It will also bring forward the statement about IndieAuth (I like the description by the way), which will help to make other posting interfaces and applications more apparent--particularly in the early Beta days when they're so limited.

Additionally adding a field for Instagram (wrapped with rel-me) will also let users potentially use https://ownyourgram.com/

Similarly a swarm/foursquare field for aaronpk's ownyourswarm would be useful, though he may have to do some tweaking to get it to work with micro.blog as it's relatively new.

Other than that I think I mentioned most of the other commonly used IndieAuth data pieces above.

 
Liked Kevin Marks's post "Random mastodon instance of the day"
 
 
 
 

It's been windy like this for most of the last day or so...

 

huffduffer and Not Huffduffer http://johnjohnston.info/blog/huffduffer-and-not-huffduffer

John describes an early experience with Huffduffer and then goes on to describe how he rolled his own version of something similar. While having your own tools is great, it does make it somewhat difficult to do the social sharing portion if you don't build that into the picture. I wish Jeremy Keith had been able to help him out as I'd love to have an idea of what John is regularly listening to and enjoying.

 

Hilarious gRegor!

 
 

@rMdes_ Beta rollout for Kickstarter Backers this week. You should be able to sign up for access shortly though.

@raamdev congratulations on the press and coverage in [Independent Publisher 2 Is Here](https://en.blog.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/independent-publisher-2-is-here/) with the launch of Independent Publisher v2 on Wordpress.COM.

As I suspect @jeremycherfas might already be aware, the version of Independent Publisher here on GitHub is already _way_ ahead of the simplified version that was just launched for the hosted .com users. Those who take time to compare them will realize a lot of the base functionality and flexibility has been taken out along with a lot of the fantastic microformats2 that really make it a more cutting-edge product.

Congratulations again! (And Thanks again for the spectacular work!)

Though this issue is certainly close-able, I might recommend that you leave it up for a couple of weeks just for the PR value... :)
