@maique Yes, I don't think it will download old posts, but new ones will start coming through.
@DazeEnd That is hilarious. So instead of a source of stress, seeing the unread badge number go up means he's winning! 🙂
@Moondeer That is bizarre! Thanks for troubleshooting that... I'll look into the details.
@odd Thank you! I'm not interested in selling it. What else would I work on the rest of my life? 🙂
@renevanbelzen I think streaming platforms like Netflix or Disney+ are actually in charge of updating their apps. But I don't know exactly how everything fits together or whether they need Samsung approval.
@hjertnes Yeah, I don't 100% trust these smart TVs, although we've disabled all the settings that try to track you. Mostly we watch streaming shows so those platforms know everything about us anyway! Oh well.
@hjertnes We just use the built-in apps in our Samsung TV (about a year old). It can do AirPlay, Apple TV+, Netflix, etc. I prefer it now because it's just 1 simple remote for everything.
@jeff @danielpunkass Thanks for listening! At this point it would take a lot for me to go back to using an Apple TV, but I'm curious if Apple will make another run at improving it or just continue to partner with smart TVs.
@Moondeer If it cross-posted but without the photo, it may because Micro.blog skips photos that might be "small" (to avoid accidentally posting ads or tracking pixels)... Adding a width/height tag can improve this so Micro.blog doesn't need to check the size.
@flowinho If you want to avoid cookies completely, you can uncheck the "Include conversation" feature (off by default), and use a theme that doesn't include your profile photo (or edit a theme to not use Micro.blog's photo). With those disabled, Micro.blog doesn't set any cookies for hosted blogs. Basically, the default is no cookies.
@flowinho 👍 Until then, the short answer is we don't collect much. We log IP address and in some cases there is a cookie if someone is already signed in to Micro.blog. We'll have to figure out how to write this up more formally.
@amit Exactly, when Micro.blog receives the post from Quill, it adds an HTML link with u-in-reply-to, which triggers Micro.blog to send the Webmention. (One change I may make is moving these into your hosted Replies instead of normal blog posts.)
@dshanske As I'm looking around my office which really needs organization and cleaning, I don't have much advice... Personally what helps me is getting new bookshelves and boxes (although that's sometimes procrastination for getting rid of more stuff).
@amit I've fixed this now, so basic in-reply-to from Quill will work. I'll likely continue to tweak this.
@amit I need to review how Micro.blog handles replies from Quill. I think it only works if the post you're replying to is something that Micro.blog has seen already. Seems like this could be expanded.
@jsonbecker Yes, this is part of what I wanted to document in that post but I don't think I made it clear... If you add a
u-in-reply-to class to any link, Micro.blog will now send a Webmention for it. (Doesn't need to be a RSVP.)
@mcg Yeah, I have heard the stories about SMS exploits. When we experiment with this, it'll be optional. (This is also why I've resisted M.b features that use private data, like protected posts or direct messaging, so in the case of a hack there isn't much to steal.)
@euanlawson @jean Great feedback, thanks. For the lack of passwords, we're also going to be adding text verification as an option soon, because browsers handle auto-filling that so well now without leaving the app. I think there's more we can do to improve this.
@kirschen Great, glad notifications are working!
