Hello Lovely Peeps!

A question re Lists: can I put someone on a list, mute them, & yet still see their posts if I check the list? (I can do this on Twitter.)

There is an account I follow, that I *want* to follow, but it posts many long toots (which are hard for me to process in the spur of the moment) & I also miss other posts I also want to see

I'm hoping this will be a work-around 🀞 - but I'm not sure I've set things up properly & I'm not sure it will work, period

Reassurance welcome! πŸ˜ƒ

@Her_Doing I don't actually know for sure, I'm pretty new myself. I'm wondering if you can add that account to a list but not follow it. When you click on your list, their posts should come up in that feed. I think. That would work the same as typing in the account name to bring up their posts, except you don't have to remember and type in the name when you use a list.
I may be talking nonsense. I'm interested in the answer too. Hopefully someone knows for sure.

Ooh, that makes sense too! Thank you!

I have a feeling it's not a hard questions, we just don't know the answer 😁 - but hopefully someone more experienced out there will see this & know. 🀞

I *know* there is a way to make Lists useful! πŸ’ͺ

@GisaGeek

Quick followup: it appears I do have to follow the person/account to add them to a list, but it also appears if I mute them from my timeline, they will still show up when I check the list feed.

I've only had one post from one account so far, so I'll want to see this happen a few more times to be really sure, but tentatively, it seems to work. πŸŽ‰

@Her_Doing I was just guessing so it would be terrific if that worked. Let me know what you figure out!
If you remember, no worries if not.

@GisaGeek

It doesn't seem to. 😞 I'm not seeing any new posts in the list since I've muted the accounts.

Back to the drawing board!
