Statement: Besides the Easter Sunday attacks, I have detailed information about many political murders and abductions – Hanzeer Azad Maulana: Image: Hanzeer Azad Maulana speaking at the screening of Channel 4 film in Geneva.
20 September 2023.
The documentary “Sri Lanka’s Easter Bombings”, which was broadcast on 5 September by the British Channel 4 has created considerable interest in Sri Lanka. Various articles and editorials have been… https://srilankabrief.org/statemen-besides-the-easter-sunday-attacks-i-have-detailed-information-about-many-political-murders-and-abductions-hanzeer-azad-maulana/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=mastodon #Features #Accountability
Guten Morgen Fediverse,
wer von Euch nach dem gestrigen Mastodon-Versionssprung weiterhin auf der Suche nach einem Fediverse-Client ist, welcher mehr als vier Fotos anzeigt, standardmäßig 3.000 Zeichen erlaubt, dazu grundlegende Formatierungen im MarkDown Format versteht und auch sonst über ein reichhaltiges Feature-Set verfügt, dem sei einmal mehr @firstname.lastname@example.org ans Herz gelegt.
Probiert es doch einfach mal aus. Gerne auf meiner Instanz firefish.ruhr (gehostet bei netcup.de in Deutschland, ohne Instanzsperren oder Datenspeicherung) oder natürlich auf irgendeiner anderen auf joinfirefish.org gelisteten Instanz.
Es ist wie so oft im Leben, Vielfalt schlägt Eintönigkeit. Schaut also bei Interesse gerne mal über den Tellerraand, da gibt es sogar noch einiges mehr an Apps. 😉

Tak się zastanawiam czy ze względu na charakter tutków na mastodonie, czy warto wprowadzić opcjonalny horyzont czasowy dla ich retencji. Jak często zaglądamy wstecz? Jeśli komuś nie zależy na historii bo i tak ważniejsze jest tu i teraz, może taki ficzer byłby dobry? 90 dni albo pół roku to wydaje się rozsądny okres.

It feels like people are 50%/50% on the search feature on Mastodon and Fediverse in general. Some Fedi software have quite extensive search implemented already in my knowledge. Mastodon barely has any search if you don't count the open text search patch.
What do you think?
I want to see how divided we are on this.

I've listed my top three in the poll below. If you have a different one choose other and post a reply.
I'm only talking about Mastodon because I don't know much about the rest of the Fediverse. I did make a Friendica account but I've hardly used it.
PS. It's my first poll so please be kind ❤️
But do let me know if you have suggestions on how I could make it better (wish there were more options)

Will the Korean drama wave rise higher — or could it crash?
It would be cool if mastodon added a feature where if you posted a link and that link was "verified" by a mastodon account, that the post would link back to that user, and if there was a lot of independent engagement with that url you could see the entire conversation easily even if the author wasn't tagged directly. #mastodon #ideas #features
Following on from yesterday - I have budget for many #Features at iMore this week.
They can be 'out there' as much as possible, it just has to be fun.
I want new voices.
This looks like a great option for now but I can't help but think that allowing everything in posts to be searchable as an option would be a better approach. That would do away with hashtags altogether.
Some Mastodon instances have implemented a custom full text search feature like https://universeodon.com from https://github.com/VyrCossont/mastodon/pull/8 I've been using it lately and makes finding things that much easier.
I'm hoping to see adoption of a way to fulltext search being an instance option, opt-in and opt-out depending on the instance settings implemented by default soon.
For anyone curious this is being discussed in this GitHub thread: https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/21627

● Sharpest shot (burst mode): This feature will select the sharpest image from a burst when IBIS is enabled. All photos from a single burst will also be placed in a separate folder on your card and the image #EXIF data will carry additional IBIS data for later review and filtering.
● Sharpest moment (single shot mode): This will buffer images while you're holding your shutter fully depressed in a single shot electronic shutter mode and then only write onto the card the sharpest moment, when IBIS detected the least camera shake and was able to correct for all the movement while the sensor was read from.
● High resolution sensor shift photos: All Canon camera bodies that are capable of producing higher than sensor's native resolution photos using sensor-shift method will now gain this feature even if they previously didn't come with it.
● Panorama mode (sweeping or stacking): All Canon bodies that were missing this shooting mode gain this ability with the new firmware update. It comes with automatic metering, calculated over the entire panorama shot, or let the user select metered position that doesn't have to be at the starting position of the panorama shot.
● Ultra-wide video mode: On top of standard 4K resolutions, Canon is now including an option to select user-defined and narrower than 16:9 aspect ratio. As data will be read from the sensor faster with shorter vertical reads, this will also improve rolling shutter and high shutter speed performance in videos. OIS and IBIS will also be able to correct for more vertical movement without vignetting.
Additionally, Canon has updated its Digital Photo Professional (#DPP) software to support hardware acceleration and utilize multi-threading, making #RAW photo editing more than 10x faster than previously, and have finally published an #Android version of DPP Express.
You can #download these updates today only from https://haveigotcanonupdatesforyou.com/aprilfools/

That is nice, and your home feed would be less 'cluttered' by people who post or boost a lot of posts at a time.

There are plenty of Discretionary Ligatures in Knedle—ch, ck, ct, st, www, And in some cases we use them for easier typing of symbols, such as different kinds of arrows, manicules, circled figures or heart. Because DLIG is love. And we love you.
Once enough negative emotions have been associated, it's better to avoid than to be "resilient".
It's started, every time I see a certain topic now, I find myself frowning & annoyed.
I think I'll create a filter soon!
Grateful that filters are a feature & so customisable here! 🙏 ✨ 😊

Good job avoiding speaking directly about quote tweets without actually saying 'quote tweets'. 😄
For my part, I kinda have a 'prime directive' about it; let masto developers develop masto.
Sure, some feedback and some direction from users is bound to be welcome (I can't say for certain, I'm not currently working on masto, and I don't speak for those who do), but don't ask them to rebuild twitter.
It's an unkind thing to do, and limits creativity and direction in awkward ways.
It's like an artist working on an epic portrait exploring chiaroscuro, and you walk up, stroke your chin, and ask them to paint a dog into the picture.
It would be a form of cultural pollution.
Plus, twitter *has run its course*. Do the next thing! How do you know it isn't an improvement?
Currently, filters only support whole word/phrase and the any keyword "or" functionality to trigger. There's been some discussion of expanding this to include "and" so a rule would be triggered by the inclusion of all listed keywords (say 2-5). Would you like to see this or other functionality added?
Please vote and *please* boost for reach, as I'd like to be able to demonstrate a desire for this expanded functionality.
