Hubris? You are talking like someone that just pretend and complain, what value did you put to make things better?
Judge and criticize a group of appassionate builders, only because *you* are not obtaining what you want shorterm, is sad.
Maybe @npub17nd…950x can share some direct experience about the matter, I'm done here.
PS: For a content creators, like any other professional, a website is the first obvious think to setup to have a sovereign space. So glad your are thinking about that, now.
I understand your concern, currently Nostr is a bit of an echo-chamber, and I think this is absolutely normal for a newborn technology and its related group. But you have to look at the potential. The real point is that it is not a platform, but first and foremost a protocol, so you can build whatever you want. The more applications that are created, the more people will flock, and these people will join other nostr-powered services creating a more wide and heterogeneous public, where you could find *your* public.
All this require works, from all parties, even the creators. If you think you can find a better and healthy ecosystem than Twitter or Instagram, for free, you are right to be delusional.
This is not "what they say about my notes", it is "let them manipulate what I published". It is a completetly different matter. I should be free to nuke a remote image and don't have anyone replacing it, and possibly changing the note meaning, without my consent.
In this case if you want to add something, even fix a broken image, shot a reply.
Something like this:
"content": "I just painted this: https://wallpapercave.com/wp/wp5960277.jpg",
I mean optional to enable the replacement for my notes, not to see the replaced ones by others. If a client support this NIP the replacement should be always active, maybe showing that an image has been replaced with a mark.
Your videos are great and this is a really interesting experiment!
For a small budget campaign, since the videos are in english, I would set this language as filter to avoid wasting impressions in low conversion segments.
The landing page is a critical point, plebstr.com is good but it is just one app, and not open source (right?); we would need a captivating but simple landing page that could offer both a direct conversion goal (download an app, use a web client) and more generic informations for different kind of users (developers, content creators, business, etc). I cannot think of any resource that can fully meet these requirements; a good prototype might be https://getnostr.xyz.
Ideally the landing page should include the video itself and propose an easy way to share it outside the fb/instagram garden.
