~tsileo/microblog.pub#58: 
option to seperate incoming shares from notes/articles

Sharing is a hell of a feature. It allows to explore the network beyond those we follow, but at the same time it is a time killer.

I'd love to see a feature that allows to have two timelines: one containing only the content of those I follow and another containing only shared content.

See my answer in https://todo.sr.ht/~tsileo/microblog.pub/37 ; I think for now we will keep only the inbox and the stream timeout.

If you go to "inbox" and filter by Announce, you only see shared content from people you follow. This combined with a custom "stream filter" should act pretty much like what you described.

Hm, yes, that's a good start ;-).

BTW: Why is it called Announce if it shows shares?

Is it possible to click a filter that shows notes/articles/questions only? Or to put it in other words: a filter that shows only content that a person generated by herself - no shares, likes, answers, follows.

This would make it indeed very easy to read a timeline blending out all the stuff that might distract from what the people I follow write themself.

Don't know whether page would fall into this class also. I'd guess it would be a response to something I wrote via webmention? If not, what is page (it's empty for me).

Announce is the official ActivityPub name for Shares. It's silly.

Thanks for the clarification, ~acegiak!

~tsileo, https://todo.sr.ht/~tsileo/microblog.pub/37 sound good to me! Then it would be possible to write some filter that takes actors from a list stored somewhere for which their shares should not be displayed, right?
