A social media platform.
Positioned as a "free as in beer and free as in freedom" alternative to platforms like Twitter, minds has significant potential.
As of 2017-05-29, minds does not have proper web compliance and does not work 100% with Pale Moon
- 2018-03-27 with Pale Moon 27.6.2 (32-bit) on Devuan-1.0.0-jessie-i386-DVD
- 2017-05-31 (general)
- 2017-05-29 with Chromium 57.0.2987.98 Built on 8.7 on Devuan-1.0.0-jessie-i386-DVD
They redid the website and now I can't even load it.
The new token system is up and running, and references Brave with some new Ethereum thing.
- The extension thingy isn't available for Brave on Android.
- It's too bad cryptocurrencies are about to get shat all over because of upcoming changes in US law.
- One can upvote one's own posts.
Notifications of post-comments don't have a summary.
When commenting on a post, one is subscribed to it. Anyone else commenting on it adds a notification to one's feed.
- When clicking that notification, one is not usably taken to see that comment.
- There is no way to "unsubscribe" from, or mute a thread.
- There is no way to flag videos or pictures.
Comments are not threaded.
- The line between blogs and posts is so blurred that blogs don't need to actually exist. Is that a communal thing? I don't get it.
- The blog browsing functionality is infinitely-scrolling, like vine or tumblrrrrr, and it sucks. It's like some sort of shared feed and not like a proper blog.
When editing a blog post
- There is no way to cancel the edit.
- Its font is all thin and stupid. It is mainly for this reason that I would not use it.
- When viewing a blog post, there needs to be an upvote/downvote feature at it's bottom, and at the bottom of the comments.
Thumbs-down are viewable on the recipient's activity feed.
- This will result in them being angered and randomly downvoting ones own posts. What the fuck are the developers thinking?
@should provide the same name-searching functionality that Twitter does.
- It's possible for the notifications feed to have new subscribers appear, but they're not actually found in ones subscribers list. Did they unsubscribe? If so, that isn't appearing in the notifications feed.
- Do accounts with a lot of subscribers/comments/etc have some way of filtering this functionality, or will they just get one long string of useless "x subscribed" for pages and pages?
- There is no "sticky" feature.
- Why exactly are there separate features for blogs versus regular posts?
- Rich text functionality is provided in the blogs functionality but not the regular posting feature.
- Adding a new blog post isn't possible from one's main page.
When referencing a URL in an entry, a summary appears. This is only sometimes nice, and sometimes it's ugly and awkward and not desirable.
Visit the front page. Underneath "Take back your internet freedom" are links for Open Source, Encryption, Free speech, Community owned. They all appear to be links, but none can be clicked.
- Works as-expected in Chromium.
Cannot comment on items. After entering text, the reply arrow does not become clickable. Pressing
- When commenting, typing a URL doesn't provide a summary.
- Works as-expected in Chromium.
It doesn't work in Pale Moon.
A view when a post passes over the center of your screen. An impression is when a user clicks on a post.
