    From the Terms of Use:

    You must be at least 13 years old to use Tildes. In addition, if the country you live in has set a higher minimum legal age to be able to give consent for using digital services (such as some EU member states), you must be at least that age to use Tildes.

    I wouldn't worry about using profanity anywhere, if it really bothers you you can always just replace it with asterisks or get creative and use $@!. :P

    Previous discussion about profanity.

    It also includes tags but yeah, it's a little basic right now.

    Lacking that, is there a way to use Tildes' API to perform automated search myself?

    There's no API yet so you can't. (#335)

    If you're looking for something you posted yourself (or you know who posted it) there's still a way to do this. Go to your profile's comments listing (https://tildes.net/user/username?type=comment), add &per_page=100 to the URL and use your browser's search (CTRL+F). If you can't find what you're looking for, press End and click Next for the next page. This will give you the current largest amount of data you can get on one page.

    Edit: I made an issue to track advanced search features, if anyone has any more feel free to reply here or on GitLab.

    I was wondering why it was capping out at 1400px no matter how wide you resize it since main has a max-width: calc(100vw - 300px - 1.2rem); rule, that should grow with the width and not stop at 1400px.

    It turns out that the body defines the CSS grid columns and that 1400px is the 70rem in this rule: grid-template-columns: 1fr minmax(auto, 70rem) auto 1fr;

    Was going to post this as a comment on this topic (and there's others too) but this might serve better as its own topic.

    Now that Youtube videos posted will display the channel name where the domain would normally go, should we keep including channel names in the topic title?

    It wasn't meant to negate your point, just saying that there's no barrier to entry for looking/downloading.

    The Exemplary labels were recently hidden:

    Lately there have been multiple "exemplary fights", where people are
    using the Exemplary label to highlight and boost comments that they
    especially agree with, even if the comments themselves aren't especially
    good.
    I think the prominence of the Exemplary badge and the count of how many
    Exemplary labels a comment has received are contributing to this. This
    was only made visible somewhat recently (9b64d22d), so I'm going to try
    removing it again now. There should probably be a page added to Docs
    explaining the different "stripe" colors, since the Exemplary stripe is
    now unexplained and not obvious.

    No. If you're using activity sort every time a topic receives a new comment it will be bumped to the top. Also depending on the period you selected, only topics from that period will show up.

    If you'd like to control it somewhat, you can filter out specific tags.

    There's no third-party stuff or tracking. You can also see what Tildes does collect in the privacy policy.

    Edit: btw, any topic or article posted on Tildes is submitted by another human. So "a healthy variety of sources" is fully dependent on the demographic.

    What about /g/? They are groups after all. We already have @Bauke and /u/Bauke ways of mentioning people. ~tildes and /g/tildes would make sense.

    They made it so anyone can, and even say so:

    Mastodon has done all this right, starting in Mastodon version 2.8. And now anyone else can, too.

    They also made an integration guide to explain how you could implement it into any other site so we could even get it on Tildes. Deimos made an issue about integrating it which I hope gets added.

    Yeah it makes sense that the tags overflow, the topic metadata also has a max height of 4rem so eventually the tags will just get cut off.

  19. Comment on What are the arguments against letting user data be collected? in ~tech

    The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "privacy" as: and the "right to privacy" as: As it stands right now, the vast majority of data collection is done without explicit authorization. And...

    The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "privacy" as:

    a. the quality or state of being apart from company or observation
    b. freedom from unauthorized intrusion

    and the "right to privacy" as:

    the right of a person to be free from intrusion into or publicity concerning matters of a personal nature

    As it stands right now, the vast majority of data collection is done without explicit authorization. And sometimes even when explicitly disabling the supposed collection. This is literally antithetical to the definition of privacy and the right to privacy.

    Then, Edward Snowden said it best:

    The way rights work is, the government has to justify its intrusion into your rights.

    And I think it's safe to say that that doesn't just apply to governments anymore.


    Using the internet in the current day and age with all the tracking and collecting is no different than just telling someone what you did and looked at every second of the day. Other people in the topic have already said it better but there's no such thing as anonymous or non-personally identifiable information once you get a big enough scope. I shouldn't have to go through the effort of getting rid of the tracking, the company wanting to track me should go through the effort of letting me decide.

    The problem with using hover as a mechanic to display information is that it isn't obvious nor accessible.

    When using a link for it, expectations are that when you click on it you go somewhere. Which when using [text](# more text) the link will become https://tildes.net/<topic info>#, taking you to the top of the page.

    On mobile you can't hover so it'll be inaccessible to a lot of people.
