I’m trying to teach myself to draw dungeon maps. Here’s a first attempt :)

@herself Wanted to find one of these in my youth while exploring local woods near my hometown -- alone.

@Sylari me too :)

@smokey that was added on a whim! I suspect setting up a library in a cave complex isn’t particularly good for preservation... :)

@Burk Thanks! (and all... that would be a nice thing, wouldn't it, to be able to tag everyone in a conversation thread without having to type in everyone's names?) Lots of good tutorials around and I pretty much just copied some of those. It's really fun :)

@herself that would be a fantastic feature!!

@Burk like an @all, or something similar.

@Burk @herself Doesn’t Icro do that? (Manton’s reasons for not having it as the default behavior were to prevent spam-like tagging and making it harder for you to escape a conversation, but it would be nice to have some sort of option to easily include everyone who’d replied, optionally.)

@smokey nope - and as far as I can tell it won’t even give you look-ahead when you start typing @ ... the way the default app does.

@smokey @herself Maybe a means of displaying the names involved and forcing the user to tap/click each one to add to convo as needed each time? I totally get the problem with the "reply all”! 😬

@herself Given my experience with people showing no common sense when using Reply All on email, I can understand Manton’s concern. Even on systems that had a “are you sure you want to reply to everyone” dialog check people conditioned themselves to automatically click yes without even thinking. And then people who were unhappy receiving those reply alls would complain to the sender by - you guessed it - doing their own reply all.

@seishonagon Huh, I thought someone had mentioned one of the third-party apps had some way to pick/include all Conversation participants in a reply. Oh well.

The username autocomplete is not part of the Micro.blog API, so everyone would have to re-engineer it themselves, which is, I guess, why no one has done it. I don’t know if there are plans to add it to the API (or open-source the current Mac/iOS code, which has the occasional bug) or not….

@Burk @herself Yeah, something like that is kind of what I had in mind. In this case, it could even build upon the existing (first-party only) username autocomplete by including those names at the front of the list, perhaps with a different color background or something to distinguish them from the “regular” autocomplete results.

@ronguest yerk, yes, fair enough on that front. Though some way to pick associated names in a conversation would be handy!

@herself Yes, I’d like to see a method as wel.
