@skalman Ah, simple: I don't want to write HTML. But if you do, then adding something to your config file allowing authors to simple add HTML would be simple. It depends on how much support you want for writing correct HTML. The simple solution would provide none, of course.

@emmadavidson Definitely. But Patreon also doesn't provide creatives with a customized app, for example. The best you can do, if I remember correctly (I signed up for an account a long time ago and never did anything with it) was have patreon-only content on it, right? That doesn't "feel" like you own it as a much as an app (that you still don't own, of course), it feels even "better" than a wordpress blog that you have to set up and write and upload images to… The entire packaging is important.

Morning question:

To which extent having a bigger screen/higher resolution/tiling manager affect your short term memory?

I feel like my short term memory got order of magnitude worse in the last 10 years.

I cannot keep enough information in my brain to effectively write a program with a single 40 lines long buffer.

Can't say whether this comes from always having more information directly in sight or simply from aging :/

Couldn't find any study about the matter, did you ever read something related to that?

The Escapex platform discossed on the last boost is super interesting. It's the capitalist answer to our struggle to earn money. Facebook and Instagram are acting as middlemen to people's attention; Escapex is a more traditional middleman for money. Basically Escapex producers get a deal worth some money that's probably better than Patreon for them. It only works at large scale, I'm sure. But an interesting idea nonetheless! (Not that I like it, but still!) πŸ˜…

Celebrities with a huge audience realise they can leverage their image better by themselves than on by big social media platforms.

This starts to create a crappy experience for people who have different apps to follow different people. If only there was a way to federate multiple social networks together. #fandomdon

@stevegenoud They are on different instances, yes. And even ol' Amaroq allows me to switch instances quickly enough.

@skalman What do you mean? Does the code not produce the tag? Or are you asking why I don't use definition lists in my writing? That I can answer: Anything that I use a definition list for can be written as a bullet list or a sequence of paragraphs with appropriate highlighting of the terms, or using quotes.

That is:

* *foo*: bar
* *foo*: bar

Or:

*foo*: bar.

*foo*: bar.

Or:

foo:

> bar

foo:

> bar

@skalman I wonder what made the image disappear. I restored it, in any case. I’m using this extension on my site, by the way: oddmuse.org/wiki/Tagging_Exten

@skalman I wonder what the minimal viable features for web content would be, for you? Maybe this? β€œEach term must fit on one line, and must be followed by one definitions. A definition begins with a colon.”

Example:

This is a term
: This is the definition.
And this is part of the same definition.

What do you think?

@skalman Maybe? But Oddmuse basically uses its own parsing framework so that they can be β€œcomposed” so all I would do is package the definition list only into a separate file and you could combine it with all of the other markup rules.

@skalman and you use all the features, including multiple definitions per term and multiple paragraphs per definition? It looks hairy but surely we could write an extension to provide it.
