One thing I really don’t like whit Micro.blog is this emoji thing. How am I supposed to search for example running or swimming?

@ajennische There is a limited search on the web (Discover → search icon). I'd like to expand it but sticking within the goals of not surfacing spam, harassment, etc.

@manton ok. That’s a resonable cause.

@manton sorry to jump in like this, but how does one get a podcast related post to be included in the Discover - 🎙 category?

@nicktmro It includes any post that has an audio HTML tag.

@ajennische @nicktmro FYI, here’s the whole help article about the subject.

@smokey I had read that but had no idea the trigger was the audio embed. Got my answer though and can confirm it works as advertised

@nicktmro Ah, good point; it lumps podcasting into the “keywords” topics, which it’s not exactly. I wonder if it’s better to be explicit in this case at the expense of the current simplicity?

@smokey it might be better, unless @manton plans changes in that space... and like the way it works now, as it really feels like Discovery for Audio content.

@nicktmro @smokey I'm going to update the help page. You're right that this isn't a good description of how it actually works. Thanks!
