I think Twitter lowers my tweets in search when I'm constantly linking to my site

Good morning IndieWeb, jeremycherfas

Hello zegnat. Working nights still?
#
Zegnat
No. We’ve survived the new major release so we’re back to normal working hours
#
jeremycherfas
I don't think I tracked where it is you are working, if you can say.
#
Zegnat
See -chat :D

do I need to be able to search peopletags on my site? I usually provide /tags/tag for #hashtags, do I need to do that for #@peopletags?

#
[jgmac1106]
this might be -dev but you could use rel links for people tags. Or add a p-category but it seems redundant if each person is an h-card...possible group people by p-category. I do that now

Interesting idea though!

“Show me a feed of posts that mention @martijnvdven” might be just as interesting as “show me a feed of posts that are tagged #indieweb”

Hmm I have personally thought about “person-tag” pages lately. Facebook allows you to show the “relationship page” between two people and it shows all the common posts between them
#
[eddie]
I’ve thought it would be nice to be able to do the same thing
#
[eddie]
Mostly for my benefit but it could be useful for others too
#
Zegnat
If we’re talking public posts, I am not sure what the reason is for keeping that page secret. Useful or not.
#
Zegnat
is known to over-share though
#
[eddie]
Wait did someone mention keeping it secret? I feel like I missed something?
#
Zegnat
Just going on from your “it could be useful for others too”
#
[eddie]
Ohhhh gotcha 😁
#
Zegnat
I just meant it as in: if you are building it for your own benefit, there is no reason to make it only viewable by yourself :)
#
[eddie]
Yeah, I feel like public posts should probably be fine. The only thing where I start to wonder is if I am checking in places and tagging who is with me
[jgmac1106] joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
Didn't [sebsel] kind of handle this with his 2 degree s away of likes graph
#
[eddie]
Currently you could find that post if you know where to look on my site, but a relationship page would potentially show every public checkin of where you and that person have been
#
Zegnat
right, hmm
#
[eddie]
Although I do think it would also be useful to allow a person to authenticate the page with IndieAuth (or AutoAuth) and see all the private posts as well
#
[jgmac1106]
I want to add a simple counter one day to my follower page just not in number of replies, mentions, likes from each person with a two way follow relarionship
#
[eddie]
Ohhh that’s interesting jgmac1106
#
[jgmac1106]
Yeah mainly bc I get too many mentions on Twitter my generic mention page becomes a mess... I leave ton unapproved

Wrote up basic CSS prototype with a hover effect so go over avatar see strength of our connection
#
[eddie]
Seems like a situation where an “accepted connection” list would come in handy. Anyone you’ve allowed a response from or follow could be displayed automatically
#
Loqi
[Eddie Hinkle] Thinking through the IWC Berlin displaying responses session
#
[eddie]
But for your mentions page rather than on a post response, which is an interesting use case
#
[jgmac1106]
I think I discuss the use case in that article
#
[jgmac1106]
Why I also dream about an opt in IndieWeb search engine
#
[jgmac1106]
Tables based on h-*
#
[jgmac1106]
Followed by post type
#
[jgmac1106]
So search for any place both Essie and Greg checked into
#
[eddie]
That could be very interesting but also potentially very creepy
#
[jgmac1106]
Oops thought we were in dev
#
[jgmac1106]
This opt in

You sign in with Indieauth choose what gets scraped
#
[eddie]
Yeah, but would you be possible to opt in to say mentions in text and articles but not checkins? I feel like that’s a different level than... ohh okay. Yeah choosing what types of posts get scraped would work

what is a person-tag
#
Loqi
A person tag (AKA people tag) is a person mention that is also a tag on a post that refers to a specific person by URL rather than just a word or phrase, and is done as an explicit tagging action by the user, beyond just mentioning a person via hyperlink / h-card / or @-name, autocompleted or not https://indieweb.org/person-tag

Eddie, Zegnat, kisik21 is that ^^^ kinda what you're talking about re: "peopletags on my site" ?
[eddie] joined the channel
#
[eddie]
Yep, exactly
#
[eddie]
You could do it like that, you could also take inspiration from Facebook and show any webmentions that the person has sent to you (so it would show both all the stuff you have sent to that person and all the stuff that person has sent to you)
#
[eddie]
That would obviously make it a little more than "just a person tag page", because a webmention from that person isn't a person tag. I would probably approach it more like an interactions page with all interactions with a person, person tags being one type of interaction
#
[tantek]
I think both could be useful, and they're different
#
[tantek]
I like the Flickr version because it is very simple, direct, clear what it is doing

I come across mf2 feeds that have things like checkins, bookmarks, or replies but don't include any of the content, just a URL. Should readers/microsub servers be crawling those references to pull in the additional data? For example, a feed with a post that has u-bookmark-of that's just a URL. No title, no content, no author info. But on the permalink page of the post they include all that.
#
alexmingoia
A good example of this is https://vincentp.me/, his home feed has things like checkins but most of the content is on the individual post pages.
#
snarfed
alexmingoia: microsub doesn't dictate presentation, so readers can do whatever they want, but that sounds like a good idea
#
alexmingoia
Hmm... yeah. y

#
[eddie]
I believe the long term goal is for Microsub servers to provide the context of things like bookmarks and replies, but since they are still in the early stages, they don't yet
#
alexmingoia
It's a lot of extra work for consumers. It'd be really convenient if there was a just a single firehouse JSON feed of everything, from a technical perspective.
#
alexmingoia
Or at least a proposed standard for identifying a firehouse feed.

sknebel

Ah... my bad.
