the best thing about friends who use fedi servers other than mastodon is when they find ways to do things that break mastodon
@InspectorCaracal oh i wasnt really talking about anything specific just kinda in general because of how picky masto is at what it chooses to deal with or display and also limits things that arent actually limited by the spec and stuff which results in some funniness
@InspectorCaracal well hey if ever there's stuff you want to try out to try to break masto, im down :^)
i also admin a little instance of my own toomanycooks.social and i run the server entirely myself
so if ever that'd be useful for helping in breaking mastodon lmao
@email@example.com @firstname.lastname@example.org @Rionnal@fandom.ink nope that's legit, it's putting the message at the top, then the "recycle" icon is what it uses to indicate it's a boost/quote and then it puts the handle of the OP and the text of the quoted post
it's not a great way of doing it but it's not broken formatting
@email@example.com if you want, i can dig into the friendica boost code and see how the non-quote versions work
@firstname.lastname@example.org i got curious and did and it looks like friendica doesn't actually have boosts, it only has quote-reposts which don't function anything like. its implementation of ActivityPub isn't that great, so I'm not really surprised
it looks like fixing that has been on the table for over a year now https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/7393
@email@example.com @Rionnal@fandom.ink @firstname.lastname@example.org as much as i like shitting on masto being a picky twat, it's not masto this time lmao
that's the actual text that's being federated out, it looks the same here on misskey as for you. i think it just has custom parsing on the friendica front-end to make it look good to friendica, specifically
