I see where you are coming from with this, but this wouldn’t work out in practice
No platform does this. If they are unbanned, they’d have to start over from Scratch. It’s the same reason you don’t automatically unfollow a Roblox developer when they are terminated, you have to go in there and unfollow them yourself
They suspended me for 2 years, and I pretty much thought it was permanent until an arbitrary decision was made to allow me to post again. This was due to my problematic posts I made back when I was a weird teenager.
I was falsely suspended when an exploiter used some sort of exploit on my game to force my account to say terrible rule-breaking things. This suspension lasted around 3 days before my appeal went in and it got sorted. It would suck if I lost all my followers because of an issue like this.
I had no clue about this specific problem. It would be better if they would fix this. This has been a feature present on Roblox for the longest time, you would click three dots on a terminated account to unfollow them. I wonder if they can work with Discourse to incorporate this
We all make problematic posts from time to time. Just because you haven’t been suspended now doesn’t mean you won’t be suspended later
True, but if that user is unbanned, as Gamer in this conversation was, wouldn’t it be better to know that when you start getting notified again instead of having to find and follow them again?
Calling my opinion invalid doesn’t automatically disperse it. It’s still an opinion, and I’m not looking to start any arguments. I disagree with your opinion, yet I don’t call it invalid, right?
And I don’t see exactly what you mean on how this would apply if this was a social media platform like Twitter.
The official definition of “Social Media” is as follows:
“websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking.”
In this case, the DevForum could be considered a social media, a Twitter like platform of sorts, but it only serves Roblox developers. We make posts, people can like and reply them, I really don’t see the difference.
Keep in mind the reason I subscribe to someone on YouTube is to get notified about their new videos. Yet, YouTube is still a social media, as per your definition and not the official one correct?
Read the definition of social media again. YouTube is an application/website that allows you to create and share content (videos, livestreams, community posts, shorts, etc.) and we can then like, comment, and have discussions regarding the videos
