🇬🇧 What should we do, when we have a post to be made that is bigger than 500 symbols? How should we split them, and link them to each other, in a simple, practical and intuitive way, if possible?

    In different SoMe with length restrictions, people usually post an image.

    🇬🇧 What are the image restrictions in Pjuu, @Sigg3? File size, file format, if there is automatic conversion or optimization, pixel size and amount, etc.

    In Telegram, there is a default optimization for all images sent. But, if needed, we can always turn it off. Here, i do not yet know.

    @Pietlu, i would like to fix this "special" reply to be always shown right below the main post. Is there a way, now?

    @caxinguele, actually no... or not exactly, the only thing each reader of your post can do is to invert the order of the replys from "newest first, oldest last" to "oldest first, newest last"

    @caxinguele Not sure there are size restrictions, but default max dimensions seem to be 1280 x720. See: https://github.com/pjuu/pjuu/blob/master/pjuu/lib/uploads.py

    As for changing the order of chained posts, I think this breaks with convention and user expectations.

    A workable hack would be letting the user check a "long post" checkbox and having #pjuu convert it to PNG using im, or something.

    I mean, according to the im docs @ https://legacy.imagemagick.org/Usage/text/, this should just work:

    $ convert -background white pango:"What should we do, when we have a post to be made that is bigger than 500 symbols? How should we split them, and link them to each other, in a simple, practical and intuitive way, if possible?" longtextpost.gif

    I'm open to increasing the max post size. After much thought on this I think 500 is too small and we all know what happens on more restricted sites; Hard to follow posts and side tracking by replying to sub posts.

    Also. If we are to support ActivityPub (Federation) one day the post/comment model may need to change to be consistent with other sites. Still looking in to this though.
