!Identica - I want "popular notices not in Persian". My Persian isn't quite fluent (I only know "pyjama", which is Persian for "pyjama").
@chriswaterguy easy: do. fave. more.
I don't understand the semantic difference between RT and "fave". "Fave" is a bookmark… shouldn't RT be used to judge popularity? !identica
@samatjain I personally fave much more than repeat. repeat is more "hey, have you seen this?", fave is more "nice idea, nice statement"
@habi How much of a difference is there between the two? I want others to see what I think are nice ideas/statements!
@samatjain For me, fave usually implies RD. Sometimes I will think “nice, but I don’t think anyone else would be interested”, so only fave.
@habi Funny, I repeat more than fave, but for the same reasons as you doing the opposite.
I would fave your dent, but the link you gave gives a '502 bad gateway' error :-(
Yes, working now, thanks :-)
All interesting. I'd still like it if in !Identica I could look at the popular notices in a particular language. Non-trivial, I realize.
@chriswaterguy a good and free translation service would be the ideal solution.
How about, "Popular among people I follow"?
I DON'T want that. when (if) I want to see what's popular I want to see what's popular, period. In ANY language.
Farsi RUINS (my) scannability! End OF.
@dvdmrsdn You forgot you need to scan that right-to-left!
Agreed. We should keep in mind that English speakers don't "own" this community, as far as I know.
For me RD is for things I think are valuable to see, hear, learn, so I share. Words like "popular" are problematic when link is re: torture
When a Facebook friend shares the death of a relative, I simply can not click on "like"
@samatjain I too use "fave" primarily as a bookmark
Why are you not using "bookmark" to bookmark?
@zoowar It takes too long to search through vast lists of bookmarks; aggregatung by category works better for me
We *have* both faves and repeats, and we all use them we think appropriate. Adding subcategories would just be clutter, not added value IMHO
