more granular "public feed" privacy settings please!

hello! I just realized I had turned off all public activity to followers in the settings panel -- https://itch.io/user/settings/privacy

this is because I tend to tweak my game pages a lot, and/or other small changes, and I don't necessarily want to spam people with those changes, among other reasons

I wish there was a checkbox list of more detailed privacy controls on what kinds of public activity I can choose to share or not share, and it would help me use itch's community features more effectively

I think we're going to phase out automatically creating feed events now that devlogs are a thing. What do you think about that? (But we'll probably keep the new game events)

BTW, for some clarification, here's how it works now: Publishing a new game or updating a new game will create a new automatic event, unless there was a previous event less than 1 day ago, then the new event will merge into that. If you publish a devlog, then that will also merge into the last updated or created event from the past day. Multiple devlog posts in a day do not get merged.

I recently (in the past month or so), added some additional rules to hide 'boring' events, that just say something boring like 'page updated'. Events will only show if you change platforms, add files, or update the price.

yeah that sounds good, thanks!!
