New #Tusky PR: Add a badge to show the date a user joined
I am not sure if I like it
Thoughts? @charlag @maloki @Tak


@ConnyDuck @charlag @maloki @Tak We honestly don't see a use for this other than for spying on people in what's quite frankly, very creepy ways.

@KitsuneAlicia @ConnyDuck @charlag @maloki @Tak if this was birdsite it could conceivably be used to detect ban evasion / sockpuppeting and the like, but we actually have mods here, and even for that it'd be overkill

@snailerotica @ConnyDuck @charlag @maloki @Tak Yeah. That was our thoughts too. Besides, the sockpuppeteers have recently taken to hacking into old accounts on m.s that haven't been used in a year, so the usefulness is even more diminished than it would've been a couple years ago.

@KitsuneAlicia But this info is already in the web-app, so people can already see that.

I find it useful, because of the reasons in the PR. But I can also miss it, cause it's one click away when you view the profile in the browser.

The rationale is to help in spotting spam accounts. I don't have strong personal feelings for or against, but the information is already published… 🤷
