Follower counts are vestigial.
We must remove public follower counts. The sooner the better. The bloggers are coming.
@GinnyMcQueen Looks like this is happening on toot.cafe. Thanks for the great suggestion. 😊 https://github.com/tootcafe/discussions/issues/16
@nolan @GinnyMcQueen @asm please adopt this feature request on mastodon.cc #nomorefollowercounts
@abentleywrites @GinnyMcQueen @nolan
I'm certainly open to this idea. You can voice your opinion here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/1660 in the main repo. If they decide to go forward with it, I'll pull in the changes :)
@asm @abentleywrites @nolan Considering the amount of harassment I got from even mentioning it BECAUSE of my follower count, I'm not going to be going anywhere else to talk about it any time soon.
@GinnyMcQueen @asm @abentleywrites toot.cafe users are almost unanimously in favor of this feature, and a majority of us are web developers/designers. We'll very likely submit a PR soon.
