took a code break yesterday (pondered later structural facets after some back and forth with devine :)
anyway, you can now create new threads from the browser :>
on the train home, tapping away at the account registration & authentication bits
hope to have a first version of the forum running for y'all this weekend! :>
busy putting together the small pieces that make the whole work; showing error messages, error handling, testing the registration flow, etc
there are many steps to making even the most basic forum suitable for cohabitation :>
ayoo we have (scripting safe!) forum markup a-going
note: the embedded image is an image of the forum
@cblgh any thoughts on using a moderation system like trustnet with the forum format? any particular differences/challenges vs the chat format?
@cblgh It's already looking brilliant :3
Thanks for doing all of this. I'll do my part in trying to populate it later :D
@neauoire it is! barring anything unexpected, i'm still on track for onboarding the first users this weekend :>
at the latest, this first version will be launched next week
@neauoire i FINALLY understand why you were eating these weird corn pancakes lol
love the ingredient simplicity too, kinda feel like it will join my other quick staples :) it was easy enough that i could make it as a side while my lentil soup was boiling
@m15o real happy to hear that! 🥰 i'm imagining we'll take the styling, design, markup etc up several notches as a community after people are able to login and post, this all is just the baarest of bones :>
@neauoire nice, i was kind of hoping you would :) i'll try to hit you up my evening / yr morning tomorrow then!
@whtrbt thanx :3 hoping i can spot some dumb stuff quickly with the first external tester, fix those things and then just launch for everyone to test, opine, and contrib :>
@cblgh sweet, thanks! I'm more curious about how you're thinking about the social part of registration (eg who gets to register) than technical bits
@christa i guessed that might be the case, but also kinda feel like i wanna get the thing out and have it proven before i talk too much abt it 🙈
sorry if that's disappointing! once it's online, i can circle back to this convo and answer any questions you might have after seeing the site first-hand :)
@skyfaller golang, probably going to be AGPL (tho i'm inclined to do something like anti-cap license for the luls)
it's specifically made for merveilles, mind so ymmv :)
@cblgh Whoa, I'm super impressed by how fast you were able to pump this out. 👏
Looking forward to check it out!
@rostiger happy to hear that 🥰
i'm pleasantly surprised it came together this quickly :) there's more to do—of course—but there always is, isn't there
looking forward to your posts!
