Anotger reminder folks please can you not have fucking flashing colour emojis without content warnings. Don't put them in your display names and better yet admins don't have them on your instances.

It's not your problem exactly that Mastodon is absolutely pathetic with that these emojis federate back across all the damn time, that there's no filtering ability which from what I know Akkoma allows that.

But still.. please, don't use them. Yes we can disable animated emojis and Mastodon has that by default, but some software and clients do have it automatically enabled. And I simply don't want to disable to prevent myself boosting/replying to something that may be seizure inducing to someone else that comes across it due to that.

@freeplay psa ↑ considering it's often a result of someone you've boosted that said person has a flashing colour blob emoji in their display name.

I guess I could go all in with the filters though filter the names of these. And then for others on my instance I can just share the list for them to add to their filters etc.

But then there's just such a huge fricken variety of them it's so annoying.

What would be problem solved would be if when deleting, and yea disabling and deleting doesn't work either.. what would work wiuld be if it gave the option to delete and filter, so they are filtered out from federating back across.

Then I wouldn't need to faff about with all the damn names as such. And they wouldn't be federating back across when I don't want them.

Annnnnd the filtering is weirdly not working for usernames and display names. Existing filters I have set up are, but new filters are not.

They work perfectly in the body.

For example, temporarily add to your filter, not as a whole word, "jase", to filter my account by the username, or do the domain too you could.

It should be working. However I'm noticing it's not just my instance this isn't working on. .coffee it's not working on either..


Last filter I added to my filters that filters by username that works was around 13th Oct. Sooooo whatever has been done to the filtering in builds later than then has botched things up.
