@Claire Je ne savais même pas que ça existait... :s
Du coup, je viens de faire des tests sur pipou pour voir à quoi ça sert
@Claire A la réflexion, la ptite maison, même si elle est discrète, me parait suffisant comme indicateur ?
@Claire parfois j'aimerai finir mes toots par cet emoji parce qu'il me fait rire mais je ne peux pas :(
@Claire it might be a good idea to use a custom emoji for local-only, so it can give a self-explaining tooltip and not collide with normal use of the local-only emoji
@noiob oh, that would be better than the current emoji indeed, but it's still pretty awkward, and the upgrade path is pretty awkward as well
@Claire I made it on hometown so that instances could set their own custom emoji to whatever is called local_only -- most clients support custom emoji so it works for that case. On our server we set ours to be indistinguishable from a full stop, which allows it to be inconspicuous
@Claire I rely on it to see if a post is local-only and I find it weird and confusing, but I don't have a better idea. 😟
@Claire iirc monsterfork had an update that put 'local only' in small italics & maybe shaded the toot differently in the timeline; much nicer ui imo
@octopus i mean, the thing is, without the emoji, non-glitch-soc-aware clients (i.e. pretty much all mobile clients) don't distinguish local-only toots from normal ones, and won't let you post local-only toots
i think that was the original reasoning for the emoji, and it's why i'm still cautious wrt. moving away from it
This is a small personal instance running on a couple small ARM servers at home.
