@gemlog Now when I'm somewhere that I can use Github (blocked at work, and near unusable on mobile) I might check to see if there is an issue open for this.
@gemlog OK, so there is a bug already open on this but the latest thing really *done* to it was @Gargron tagging it #Suggestion. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/7900 Wonder if we can get this thing to get some traction along with "Mark as Read" in https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/1539
I don't use that one. I mostly use the web version on my pc and sometimes fedilab on my devices.
I would LOVE a syncthing that remembered my place across devices and clients, but more would really be the simple need to read unread posts chronologically. Same as I do in my email client. Posts are sorted oldest unread first, so I read the 'story' and lead ins.
I follow a max# of ppl and I want to read all they post. No drinking for the firehose for me.
Really want to read English left to right, downwards a web page. So for updates, latest post at _bottom_ of web page.
