One thing I want to do is make sure replies from the are gracefully handled / rejected, since they don't go anywhere when replying to blog posts right now. Not sure how to do that, but I'll try a few things before the full roll-out.

@writeas_dev check out Web mentions from the IndieWeb. Designed just for this!

@jalcine Thanks! Actually for this I'm trying to figure out how to reject ActivityPub replies, or notify platforms like Mastodon that a reply wasn't received by a user, as we don't support comments / mentions on @write_as right now (by design)

@writeas_dev @jalcine @write_as i’m kinda surprised theres nothing in the activity pub standard for this. You’d think it’d be important info

@Satsuma @jalcine @write_as Indeed, especially just for understanding different capabilities of different platforms. But maybe with us introducing "no replies" some kind of standard for handling it will evolve.

There's the nodeinfo standard, but I don't think it's been used for specific features yet. It's more for general software/instance info. But extending it for feature detection would be a good way to go.

@0x1C3B00DA @write_as @jalcine @Satsuma Great point, it does seem like the perfect place for it. I'll start thinking of what that should look like that'll be useful to others, too

:awesome: Maybe chat with @kaniini and some of the other federated project devs when you start working on it. It'd be great to get a good de facto standard for feature detection nailed down
