@waifu @flussence imo really the issue is not about ostatus/activitypub, but instead about having fallback text for non-understood fields.

similar issue with twitter, which supports polls in their official app but provides no api for it, so i could never tell when tweets had polls.

the real protocol-level issue is that there is no way to differentiate -- it's all Create Note. unknown attachment simply gets discarded. imo masto/pleroma/etc should display notices for dropped fields.


@waifu @flussence i.e. if it were Create Question, then old apps would ignore the poll entirely. but because it's Create Note with attachment = Question, old apps will display what they understand, which is the Create Note part (as if the attachment didn't exist)
