re: Masto meta; urgent Show more

@bgcarlisle that's just how it works though? DM is just a regular conversation, limited to people you mention and you. It's like being surprised someone you CC in your email gets a copy

@MightyPork @bgcarlisle yeah, but it's not the standard ux for convos because dms sort of pretend to be 1-to-1 but they're not

@MightyPork @bgcarlisle on twitter mentioning @foo in a dm with @catlord will not mention @foo. our UX developed from DMs being a weird hack and is highly orthogonal to that of other platforms

@MightyPork @bgcarlisle i think we should add a warning when mentioning a new user in an existing DM thread, something like "you are mentioning @user@domain. this will make this message visible to them. do you wish to proceed?"

@er1n @bgcarlisle I really dislike all the warning boxes that already are there, but yeah... If it helps inexperienced users, it should be there. So long as it can be dismissed

@bgcarlisle is this really "urgent"? It's just a case of people not reading their messages before they click send. I wouldn't consider it broken

@phoenix Why do you think someone else might consider it broken?

Do your best to give the most charitable reconstruction of why someone else, in a different situation might consider this urgent, and why it is broken

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
