diaspora* has posts, and has photos, what about video?? imagine I saw a video from a friend. now I want to see it again or like it or do something else. will not be easiest if I had a video option and could see all the videos he posted through a layout like the one from photos (+ the title) than go through all his posts???
what about a new logo? I am not saying to leave the star, but give it some style, another color too. the current color is too dark...
this is a good color for it: https://gyazo.com/84c5be9b01338c1b8d89236e14173d2f
the current color: https://gyazo.com/fcfaf3f5572d3cf619a0c4692a468d67 is so dark that it does not catch's my attention. add a new color or at least put it white would be great. I think the icon on a web page is a powerful thing: it can get into the mind of people, and if it's apelative enough, a person can't get them out of the head. for example: google updated it's logo, now it's prettier, so 10 hours have past, and I still remember how it is: no shadows, the same colors as it was, a diferent font, simple. the logo from diaspora* I remember it as a blurred black star.
a new layout: this one seems like a old website, a blog, not a social network... how about an indicator saying were you are? for example, when I am at flow, it could have a line under the bar, lets say, a blue line, indicating I am at flow and removing the name of it from the white module. so instead of flux be at the white module, take it off, put that blue line at the black bar. that way diaspora* even gets more room for users to see what friends are posting, makes it more beautiful, simple and modern.
custumizable layout: what about a feature that I apreciate and I am sure a lot of people would apreciate it too?? what is missing in social networks is custumization. diaspora* could have a feature to let you custumize the background and the color of that black bar, something more like gmail for example.
I think things like that would certainly bring more people to diaspora* meaning more people working on it, they can find bugs, people with knowledge can find security problems, things like that. currently I cant even use diaspora* in my country, there is no diaspora for my country and I cant creat one since I cant maintain a project like that, cant use my computer to be a server and I run windows...
what you think about my suggestions???
if, eventually, I said something that already was said, or something impossible, sry, i dont have the technical knowledge and I am new to diaspora*, but i find it so interesting that I want to help in some way.
