I’m thinking about VSCO’s model, where they don’t show you how popular your own photos are.

Why would anyone want that? Mental health. And not because mine is particularly fucked up, but because it is precisely through knowing how popular your photos are that insecurities bubble up, leading to the rise in anxiety and depression associated with knowing how popular your photos are.

Hence my request. Are there FLOSS networks that hide popularity? Is there a frontend of sorts or an addon or something for PixelFed to hide those? What about on mobile?

I thought Dansup said he was going to make a feature to disable those options.
