I recognize this is most likely a bad idea but I had it so I need to throw it out into the universe and see what comes out the other end. For science.
Basically, you know how on Tumblr, at least when I used it like 8 years ago, some accounts would have like a list of other accounts with like “tumblr boyfriend” or “daughter”, “bff”, etc. Or how MySpace had a Top Friends list that you could customize and how Facebook lists your family members (except here itd be byte family or friends).
Well I thought maybe Byte could do a similar thing where people pick other accounts to have on their “list” and it shows up somewhere on their profile. Maybe it could be a mutual thing where the person has to agree to be on your list. Or not mutual and there can be thousands of accounts with like the same “dad” lol. Or maybe like you could only be “_____” to like X amount of people. And maybe the like descriptors for the people could be customizable too like i could make someone my “king” lol. I see how the family ones like “daddy” might be weird to some people but I think it’s funny and it could be another way to customize your profile that’s fun and bring people together, get them to interact more and make connections, etc.
So how the stars come in: Maybe this would only be something you could use after you’ve gotten a certain number of stars. Or maybe new accounts get like 2 people they can have on their list and they get more slots after they get more stars up to X amount of people (like 6 or something).
Other people I chatted with on the discord talked about “marrying” other accounts lol but the logistics of the divorce and who gets whose followers seems a little messy
BUT let me know what you think. This is a super rough idea I had 10 minutes ago so im obviously open to suggestions or critiques or why this is the worst idea ever lmao. Just lmk!
