At this point, if I was the FC team Iā€˜d start to hire a PR person or smth to control this more šŸ˜„

What's the difference between the .cast names that far.quest sells (on Ethereum mainnet), and the ones herocast sells? They can't be the same because herocast has a 16 character limit and far.quest doesn't

As a newcomer, I feel that this platform is not very friendly to newcomers and feels very lonely. Every day, I only see messages from those few KOLs, and the dominance is completely in the hands of badge users.

Good post about this: https://warpcast.com/horsefacts.eth/0x0ea95ade 5k active is still pretty good based on social media ratio yes its early but fine

@mobot: I think it's of the main challenges of running social media. You need to decide how much you want to inflate the status of early adopters and redistribute it to newcomers. There was a very good sriram's post about it: https://news.kiwistand.com/stories?index=0x65268c892eeb8c4a23ef9f28b07fddc037b7734271cac2b86557cb78f403822c1d3d3e00 In Farcaster's case it's tricky as they have many airdrop farmers and - from what I understand - decided to sacrifice some support of the early users to save the feed from spam. @0x7: That's a good point. On Kiwi, according to Google Analytics - we have about 10X more lurkers than curators, which would be aligned with the 90/9/1 rule. Wondering how these numbers work for FC.

Do feel like something was lost when Degen mooned. Late 2023 Farcaster was so conversational. I was amazed when I joined how responsive some fairly big names were on FC. Also really enjoyed that the discussion wasn't so crypto-centric. New channels that reflect the interests of fleshed out adults were present. Fast-forward to June 2024 and the tip farming seems to have driven the most interesting conversations into group chats, non-crypto channels are very quiet and crypto content is dominating my feed. Hopefully it's a good opportunity to consolidate, take stock of how the boom in users was handled and set things up to better handle the next wave.

Had the same impression @kripcat.eth. It's a good point that a lot of conversation moved to groupchats - wondering if it's reversable or is it just the nature of a big network where people need some more private space.

recent channel moderation changes definitely do not help in surfacing interesting conversations

hey @pugson.eth, is there any list of all the changes they've made?

I think the most annoying change they made is that the moderator has to like every post that they want to show up on the other's channel feed, which is quite awkward for moderators. Before, you could just nuke the spammers; now, I feel like the "non-moderation" channel is maintained by getting enough good quality signals from all others' likes so that only non-spam content trends. Seems like they have an entire concept behind the new moderation.
