We have 70 accounts now and the boreal summer holidays are mostly over.
Shall we start discussing what to do with this place? Or shall we first try to find more participants to have a more inclusive discussion? That should work better now than in middle of the boreal summer.
Some time ago I read a good Toot making the character limit out to be the root of all social media evil. Twitter "discussing" "capitalism" reminded me of this Toot.
What should be FediScience character limit be?
The character limit poll has ended. It is a bit like the Brexit referendum.
6 votes: no limits
4 votes: 1000 characters
2 votes: 500 characters
A run-off vote could return a 50-50 result between 1000 characters and no limits. So if we would follow the Brexit example that would mean to opt for the most extreme never discussed version: 140 characters.
Or we could make a Dutch compromiss between the two runners up and say the limit is 2000.
Would that work or shall we have a run-off election?
@VictorVenema Octodon has a feature where if you use a CW, you can use >1000 characters (close on 2000 iirc). Without CW, it's 500.
@wim_v12e That would be wonderful. Thank you.
@wim_v12e Thank you. That is then probable at the moment the way to do this.
Fediscience is the social network for scientists.
