UAX #31: Unicode Identifier and Pattern Syntax


A spec for matching #unicode #hashtags
Pretty useful.
 
diaspora* is largely one-sided. you have to follow people that look interesting, and you have to follow #hashtags you think are interesting.

Pick some topics you like - I dunno, #religion or #science or whatever, and posts containing that hashtag should show up in your stream. Likewise if you come across interesting people, follow them, and what they post publicly (or in an aspect you're in they share with) will show up in your stream.

It's not a big, it's a feature. You have complete control over what you see when you click the dandelion, so if you don't follow things/people your feed will be sparse
 
Good point @grin@spora.grin.hu
This is some info my pod-admin sent me that might help:
... make sure you are following a bunch appropriate #hashtags and sharing with people or else you won't find any interesting content: You like #music or maybe you are interested in #streetart ?

Also make sure you engage, leave comments and use proper hashtags in your own posts, otherwise we wouldn't be able to find your profile and/or content either.

Everything here is done manually by it's users. It's up to the community to distribute content, support each other and invite new people.

There is no central system that determines and/or dictates what people see.

You can find out more at the FAQ for users [link].
Hope that is of #help
 
Glad to have you. Now you need to fill out your profile a bit and choose some #hashtags to let us all know what you're about. :)

Oh, and start adding folks to your Aspects, too. Click on @Joseph Teller's name and from his postings find the one where he "Does the Aspects". It'll tell you all you need to know about how that works here at Pluspora. :)

Have a great weekend!

Certain tags associated with high-volume “bot” accounts have been filtered out to favor actual posts by actual humans. The ‘nsfw’ tag has also been omitted because it is used primarily as a content warning, not a content descriptor.

And don’t forget that many NSFW photos are posted by bots.
AH! Color me ignorant, but I didn't realize this. I mean I know it happens. It was happening a lot on the ol' G+, but I didn't know that happens here.

I never see #nsfw posts in my stream at Pluspora or Diaspora because my personal stream is mostly filtered by my followed #hashtags and my Aspects. The only time I see #nsfw postings are in the Public streams, but those are anything goes free-for-alls, usually.
 
You are correct about the #hashtags being insufficient in themselves. The problem is that spammer, click-baiters, all-round-troll-assholes will often tag their posts and replies with false #science, #mathematics, #news, etc. tags. Unfortunately, the system will add that disguised crap into your stream. :(
 
@kalastaja@flokk.no...

Your view of what's here can be modified by three things...
  • who you choose to put in your Aspects (follow)
  • who adds you to their Aspects (sharing with you)
andAlso, there are two distinct streams available:
  • your personal stream
and
  • the Public stream.
The latter is a free-for-all where you will see post from anyone and anywhere with any content.

The former, your personal stream, is determined by Aspects/#hashtags/people sharing with you. Yes, some crap will seep in to that stream, but not as much as you will see on the Public one.

If someone is sharing with you and you don't care to see their posts (not replies, just their original posts), then you can Ignore them by pulling up their profile and click the Ignore icon (circle with line through it). This will prevent their original posts from appearing in your personal stream, but not replies they leave on other people's posts.

It is what it is... until improvements in true blocking are instituted here.

Regards...
 
Sidenote to all in this thread, please remember when using #Hashtags that they only work in primary posts for the search function and not i comments.

Also remember to enter hashtags with a Capital Letter at start (example : #Technology) as this allows people with screen readers to navigate better, the software functions from what we have been told, do not work predictably when they encounter a hashtag that is not capitalized.

Capitalise #Hashtags


A tweet today from the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB):

#ScreenReader #SocialMedia

Make sure you capitalize the first letter of each word in hashtags so that screen reader software reads out each word separately. It also makes them #EasierToRead!
