Gab Code Divergence From Mastodon Continues With:
- Post Editing!
- Improved Post Image handling
- Joined in date indicator in profile
- Profile Badges
So, I think it is fair to say that gab is now superior to regular vainilla Mastodon.
Of course that so far the biggest feature differences are Groups, Quote posting and Editing. But the other small features here and there apart of UI differences do add up to improve the general experience.
Gab feature set divergence versus Mastodon has started to become significant. Apart of groups and longer post length (3000 characters). It now has quote posting. Now I am only waiting for editing and the main features I wanted and needed will be all there. I now just wonder what Mastodon Devs will copy or redevelop next. Or if they will not given how direct it is the new features association with gab. #gab #mastodon
@AvatarX Looks like my gab profile is not syncing anymore in this instance. I don't know why.
I must say that I missed that "high engagement from the let go" experience like the one I had in G+ the first 3 years. Only possible when home streams are not algorithmically weighted and filtered. And it is exactly my experience with the new Gab. Surprising as it is not going to be back into full form when it comes to feature set until like 14 days or so.
I must admit that the Gab vs Mastodon drama may still give me another two weeks of entertainment. As I am really shocked by the level of hysteria it caused on many Mastodon Devs and users. Some now are even quitting mastodon. Which is pretty much declaring defeat whether they are aware of this or not...
So, Gab did it. They launched on the fediverse based on Mastodon and since they brought in 1M users. Gab is actually now the biggest Mastodon node by far. Another thing is that I calculate there are now at least 25 apps across Windows10, Windows App store, iOS, OSX, Android and Linux that can connect to Gab. So, there is that. What is also interesting is that over time Gab will be the most featured Mastodon Node Site. Given they are also porting in all the features gab had and adding new ones.
