Boost and if you have a GitHub account, get in there and at least leave emoji reactions. I don't want to bother development unless this is a thing a lot of folks care about. ^_^
@maiki My first thought was how difficult is it to implement those URIs that frankly are not used much outside of a small community. I looked at the linked code in the twitter-text link and it looked fairly straight-forward (I was weirded out a bit 'coz brain thot it was reading python and I don't know ruby..).
Then I thought of some (to me) fun URIs if we had authentication down solid.
Oops, this should be on github. I'll cp/pasta
@rysiek good points, but while I don't personally use FTP, I hear it is used in many contexts, still, such as anonymous FTP for file distro, or in "developing areas", whatever that means.
And I doubt linking to ftp:// is gonna turn folks onto the protocol... but that would be wild if they did! I'd probably jump on that more than #gopher!
