Feature Suggestion - Citing posts
It was suggested I put this in the issue tracker by @freemo who likes the idea.
As qoto is a science based instance, I thought it would be a good idea to be able to cite a post.
We already have the ability to embed posts, (for example in to blogs), however I think the ability to cite posts would be one step up from this.
So for example my post on the San Marino vs England game, the option would include
the url (https://qoto.org/web/statuses/107282450521541135) Date / time stamp Original posters name (perhaps)
So click on 3 dots, select cite and it comes up with the info above. This can then be pasted in to something like a bibtec file, citation management application (e.g jabref)
It is fine to just extract the data as plain text. Anyone who is citing this should know what to do with it.
This would allow posts to then be cited in academic papers correctly.
This is just a feature idea.
