Yesterday I was working on a little clone for you that’s also federated.. See it live here gifwy.com

We do need much much more content.. If you have some nice and time please upload some 😄😇

@stux If I don't get too distracted uploading to Fedigram instead!

😅

@stux Maybe an option to signup w/ Github, Discord, Etc

@Freeplay @stux Ehh, I don't think creating a dependency on closed-source platforms would particularly fall in line with the original concept of the fediverse

@stux
How is it federated? I tried searching a link of a post here but it didn't come up.

@liaizon Yesterday I disabled the federation plugins for now, there are some problems that I need to fix first :)

@stux Got a few questions, actually. If you want to answer them, please do.

> Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Which automated spam detection service is this?

What service do you use for analytics?

Would you be interested in automatically stripping location data from images' metadata?

Have you considered using an open-source alternative to Gravatar, or perhaps allow users to link their GIFWY profile to their Mastodon profile? Then perhaps you could sync the avatar from their Mastodon account.

What service is used for 'tracking'?

> This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Are you permitted to talk about this data you are obliged to store?

A few technical suggestions / questions:

Have you considered placing a link to the source code repository on the GIFWY website?

Does GIFWY use ActivityPub?

@resynth1943 I'll try and awser them all 🙂

> Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
>> Users need to be logged in before comments.

> What service do you use for analytics?
>> None! :)

> Would you be interested in automatically stripping location data from images' metadata?
>> Great idea! That's a must indd, not thought about that.

>Have you considered using an open-source alternative to Gravatar,
>> I'm still working on that yes, al must be open source

@stux Haha, open source rules! I do think you should consider letting users link to some sort of ActivityPub account (if that's a thing, I need to do some reading... it would probably be even cooler if users could use any account on any ActivityPub instance though)

@administrator Sure thing! I have already something for that. It downloads the Google fonts local to the server 😄

As long as it doesn't make a connection to google with every visit, nice to hear 🙂

@administrator That’s the idea indd 😃 Keep it all on the same server, faster and less spying from companies

>> That would be wordpress.com for the plugin to work. But I think about disabling this sicne it has no value..

>> This would be IP addresses. IF a users was to post malicious stuff I can ban them from the server.

Have you considered placing a link to the source code repository on the GIFWY website?
>> I'm not sure about the platform yet since it's WordPress. It's cool and suff but not 'decicated' as I like to see it!

Does GIFWY use ActivityPub?
>> Yes, currently I have disabled the plugin since it doesn't work full yet
