@happy0, I think an install works to replace a previous version only when the signatures match. If your current manyverse was installed through Dat Installer, then this dev version will work. If installed through F-Droid or Google Play, it might not work.
Fantastic research @utunga! I would love to build a 'bridge' with these persons you talked to, so that we can start deploying Manyverse (specially when it gets Bluetooth sync) in the global south. Let's stay in touch
Fully agreed with the evaluation of the current state of SSB moderation. Two tools (that need to be implemented in apps) would significantly solve this:
- Transitive blocks
- Block lists
Well basically we can strike out "transitive blocks", first because it's a bad name (it's not mathematically transitive), and because block lists are an implementation of it. In fact Dominic already made a library for block lists.
It's interesting that I see some people block account X and point out some cypherlink to the critical message, but I can't even open the message or the account X. I think it's because I have been using a lot of blocks (in my social circles I'm the account that has most blocked others), also on pubs and such, so that I don't get content from such users to begin with. If this would be implemented as a block list, then it would suffice for people to subscribe to my block list and they would be "safe".
What @christianbundy said was also a fantastic idea. I bet the calculation would interest Dominic, since he worked on the dynamic graph djikstra algorithm. I bet there is some graph algorithm paper on a proper metric for this, that we can simply implement.
