on misskey when I close the compose window it brings my draft back when I re-open it. idk if I prefer this behavior but I'm definitely not used to pop-up notifs
Somebody was working on a PR for saving drafts... In the meantime in the next release your draft will stay in place while you navigate between pages at least.

This sounded like an interesting idea, simple, but i'm not sure Ive come across it before.


I havent thought it through much and possibly activitypub wouldn't play nice? Still thought bonfire folks may be...

@Dazinism Interesting... ActivityPub would likely not allow actually deleting other people's comments once they've federated, but there's some things could do along these lines:
  • Delete your instance's copy of a comment in a thread you started, so that people who read the canonical thread will not see that comment.
  • Block someone from participating in a thread so their comments will only spread to the followers of the commenter (and other users of their instance) but won't be accepted by your instance and won't be forwarded to your followers.
  • Lock a thread you started so that any further replies will be treated the same as in the previous point.


Most of this should be pretty easy to implement using existing functionality such as boundaries, and would be usuful both for thread starters and Topic curators. But anything we can do with those will be limited compared to we'll be able to do when implementing proper Groups.

Eventually an entire extension would be ideal, just like I could reply to tasks, I’d like to be able to reply (if the instance policy lets me do it) to instance block announcements, if possible directly, as a mod, from the social extension; I’d...
We've talked about doing something like this in the past. Of course it would be much more useful if we can agree with other fediverse apps on a standardised way to do it.
