ahhh this is so exciting
#

now the next question is whether i want all my checkins on my home page feed or not
#
aaronpk
maybe just the ones with photos?
#
aaronpk
i think i'll leave them all on my home page for a while and see how it feels

I'm wondering about the idea of import from h-card into WordPress user table.
#
miklb
GWG for what purpose?
#
GWG
miklb: I have a plugin called Postmatic that has an interesting feature. It creates subscriber level users to store user data. It is used for email where you can comment by reply. Why not store commenter info in the user table.
#
miklb
that would make sense then, and indeed be an interesting feature
#
GWG
I've thought about it for a while. If h-cards could be stored in the user table, it could be a basic nicknames cache.

It’s eerie how closely @DreamHost’s noble cause, vision, and mission parallel #IndieWeb principles. We need to figure out how to enable it.

It was a small tweak to use "checkin" instead of "location". Works perfectly.

OwnYourSwarm is a service which sends your Swarm checkins to your own website via Micropub.

#

hm i seem to have gotten a webmention or pingback from a Medium blog.
#
tantek
aaronpk, uh, I'm a little concerned you may be conflating (and confusing?) mentions and tags
#
tantek
in particular a mention does not and MUST not just be upconverted to a "tag" which is a much more deliberate action
#
tantek
Swarm has *both* mentions and "with ..." taggings of people explicitly as checking them in

M-mxuribe: don't know - that URL is js;dr, if you posted a note here in #indieweb, could you provide the chat.indieweb.org URL permalink to it?

#

aaronpk - ok sounds like you built the right thing, and just your post about it is confusing
#
aaronpk
yeah I actually do two things, and didn't explain that well in the post
#
aaronpk
let me update it
#
KartikPrabhu
M-mxuribe: I can't see that note even with JS one
gRegorLove joined the channel
#
tantek
aaronpk, e.g. you said "When the checkin text includes mentions of people..." and that confuses the issue
#
aaronpk
yes that's the other thing
#
tantek
It might help if you provide an example that explicitly shows *both* mentions and tags of people as separate things
#
tantek
because otherwise people are more likely than not to confuse the two
#
aaronpk
i don't think you can check in with someone without also mentioning them tho
#
tantek
E.g. I remember arguing even with kevinmarks about this, who I think was at first advocating that every @-mention in a tweet should be a "person-tag" when it clearly is "just" a mention
#
tantek
aaronpk, a "with" is a *special* mention
#
aaronpk
(also apparently the iPod version of swarm doesn't have the +person bnutton?!)
#
tantek
it does
#
aaronpk
not on mine! there must be some other criteria for it showing up
#
tantek
pretty sure I captured that in my prose description
#
tantek
aaronpk, would be good for your post to link to /checkin also :)
#
KartikPrabhu
so much orange!
#
tantek
aaronpk - so weird - it's totally missing!
#
tantek
which iPod/iOS?
#
aaronpk
old ipod touch (no front camera), ios 9.3.1
#
aaronpk
typing "with @aaronpk" does not check my in fwiw
#
M-mxuribe
tantek: your site seems down...thats pretty much the note.
#
tantek
right, that's just a mention
#
tantek
M-mxuribe: yeah, I'm dealing with a bandwidth support issue :(
#
tantek
(since ~9:30am this morning for today, but issue has been going on for a week or so)
#
M-mxuribe
ah, ok. sorry to hear. ok, good luck.
#
tantek
thanks M-mxuribe. I've started to document some of the issues (in a generic fashion) on /bandwidth and bear has helped add to the Troubleshooting also
#
tantek
since these are potentially problems that others who run their own sites may run into

what is a sticker
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "sticker" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
aaronpk
badges in foursquare are earned, but stickers you can apply to your checkins
#
aaronpk
different game mechanics. i wonder why they switched.
#
tantek
untappd also rewarded with badges
#
tantek
aaronpk, most Swarm stickers *are* also badges, in that you have to earn them before you can start using them
#
aaronpk
yeah it's a hybrid, but earning them just earns you the ability to use them, rather than the badge appearing on your checkin automatically
#
tantek
there's a difference though in use / appearing
#
tantek
in Foursquare the badges may appear as part of your checkin, but just in the commentary / description IIRC
#
tantek
in Swarm, the stickers are overlaid on top of your icon
#
tantek
hence seem "stuck" onto you
#
aaronpk
i thought the badges appeared over the icon too. there must be some old screenshots
#
tantek
and this is why we take screenshots
