what content is “controversial “ in a decentralized non corporate space #gatekeepers 

@rudolf @cavaliertusky that kind of stuff is covered elsewhere in our CoC. TL;DR we’re not opposed to these topics as long as they’re behind a CW and the views mentioned aren’t extreme etc. Ultimately we take them on a case by case basis.

Yay ^^ They finally arrived! The @fosstodon stickers. Adding another topicstarter to the billboard side of the thinkpad, it's been a great place to be ever since I joined. Thank you all!

@mike @tootapp ahhh I see what you mean. When you scroll it off screen upwards, the arrows switch to upward so it assumes you’re scrolling upwards. If I scroll it off downward, they flip to point downward. I’ve never noticed those arrows before. Maybe make it more obvious by changing the text to say “Load more downward/upward” or something?

This makes sense now. Thanks for replying and sticking with us despite the blocking mess. Best app on iOS bar none!

Thanks @mike appreciate you helping. @tootapp it’s Kev here, so we can talk direct now.

Yeah, I see the little arrows either side of the “load more” bar, do I need to hit them to force it to load downward? Why would that not be the default behaviour for tapping anywhere in the bar?

are back!
