In Class Exercise: Trolling the 2020 US Elections
Break up into groups of four (in class). Brainstorm the ways that as trolls (pick your motivation – foreign government, ethnic nationalist, for the lulz) you would hack, disrupt or generally screw with the 2020 US elections. Before next week, convene as a group and organize a 3 minute pitch (preferably with slides) to seek funding from a supervillain for your disruptive activities. Include a complete budget.
A function that allows you to manage your blocks as a group by selecting them. Like connect to other channel, delete, move, etc.
A few Qs about channel privacy: what happens when you change an open/closed channel to "private"? Can people who followed the channel before it was private still view the content? Does the content that you uploaded, not connected, still feature on Are.na if other people connected the content from your channel while it was public?
Being able to select multiple channels and change the privacy settings to them all at once rather than one by one.
(small and petty complaint)
when I 'save as' an image from a block, I now get an (annoying to open) .webp file rather than the image in the original format, unless I remember to click through to the source.
would love to be able to save in a regular format / be prevented from saving or reminded it's a .webp if I try without clicking through (much more annoying to deal with a .webp after the fact than click through while using are.na)
