When will #editing of posts come to #Mastodon, it is possible in #Friendica which uses #ActivityPub for some time now, so when will Mastodon be able to implement the supposedly rocket science code that is needed?

Tim Chambers reshared this.

delete and redraft is already possible and it's more fair and transparent imho
@Jöächim D. Ɖ. Ɗ. Ď. Törnphlükß yes, but delete doesn't work too well either, deletions are not well federated. Seems to be rocket science as well.
As the Co-Organiser of both official ActivityPub Conferences and 15 other events where I invited the mastodon developers and they never came:
Some call it rocket science, others call it ignorance of mastodon devs ;)

Also my credo: The lack of ActivityPub Client to Server and not caring for DID is vendor lock in.
@Sebastian Lasse I use both Mastodon and diaspora, if you want I can try to contact someone in the Italian mastodon (for example, mastodon.uno) or in the Italian pirate party. I met some very nice geeks there
