I have no idea what I'm doing here. Without email notifications turned on (fuck that) I have no way of knowing if someone's replied to anything I've said. I doubt @ello will be entirely feasible in this form for people with a large number of online friends for this reason; I just can't easily find anything. Gimme multiple groups (not just "friends" and "noise") and some way of getting in-site notifications.
Can users also automatically be put in Noise? Seems stupid to have to manually sort the users I don't care much about into Noise or Friends. If passive following is going to be a thing, it shouldn't take any effort on my part.
I was happy to hear that they were talking about creating a black version of the site, though...this bright white is a killer.
