[Re-listening to the Silmarillion awakens in me the desire to be creative]
Are there many designers here? I'm sure there're some although I haven't found many yet.
Since whole interface concepts require a lot of time and energy, I shall post under this tag small features that could be. The ones I'm too shy or too lazy to submit as issues. :)
To open closed doors, I shall start with keys.
Many users here cram in fingerprints and post external links. Yet if one uses Fediverse daily, why send me to Keybase, why not encourage me to grab their public key directly from the social profile one uses most often? Uploading it would take a second.
@wiktor What you're saying is true! Perhaps my layman's assumption that for many users frequent updates won't be needed... is wrong. Then again, people don't always update info on keyservers either. But people seem to take more care in updating their social network's profiles, somehow =) In fact, this very issue of a Fedi user linking to server which did not happen to have their key (was deleted, the user didn't realize it) is the reason why I thought of this interface addition.
